Abstract:

The immune system is the body's defense from attack - whether from viruses like influenza or unwanted bacteria. In this episode, Dr. Alice Roberts explains how it works and what happens when it goes wrong. She also takes part in a stunt guaranteed to scare her, so the scientific effects on her immune system can be observed. Immunologist Josh Bosch compares blood samples taken before and after Dr. Roberts was terrorized. They show that her infection-fighting white blood cells were raised fivefold in a stress response resulting from her experience. Using all the means at her disposal (dissections, drawings, paintball guns, even cakes), Dr. Roberts explains the fantastic complexity of our immune system.
