VAZ, N.M.. Evolution and conservation of immunological activity. Braz J Med Biol Res [online]. 2006, vol.39, n.12, pp.1521-1524.  Epub Oct 30, 2006. ISSN 0100-879X.

Paraphrasing what Gregory Bateson says on evolution, we might say that: "Immunology has long been badly taught. In particular, students - and even professional immunologists - acquire theories of immunological activity without any deep understanding of what problems these theories attempt to solve."

Keywords : Theory; Immune system; Evolution; Conservation; Bateson; Maturana.
