Not everyone can be an expert on everything, and this is a clear instance of that happening. Your immune system knowledge is pretty limited, but that's okay...as long as you're not a doctor. Then we'd be worried.

You're real close to being a doctor, at least by our standards! Which admittedly aren't too high, but still. Study up a bit more and you'll be well on your way to being an expert on the human immune system!

Are you a doctor? We wouldn't be shocked if so, given how much you know about the immune system. We're willing to bet you know quite a lot more about illnesses and the human body, too. Good work!
