Immune evasion

Immune evasion is referred to as the evasion strategy followed by pathogenic organisms and tumours from the body of their host, in order to increase their chances of survival. Tumour cells escape and suppress the activity of the immune system. Survival of the pathogen mainly depends on the host evasion. The evasion of the parasite from the host immunity is common and involves variety of molecular mechanisms and it generate a wide range of pathogenic effects. The protozoan immune evasion strategy includes anatomical seclusion in vertebrate and invertebrate host, antigenic variation, shedding, immunosuppression and anti-immune mechanism. Whereas the helminth immune techniques are immune suppression, coating with host protein, large size, molecular mimicry, shedding and anatomical seclusion.
