Homeostasis

The immune system contributes towards homeostasis in many ways. Fever is one of them. When you have a fever, the body is trying to destroy or slow down the growth of germs by raising your body temperature. The DiGeorge Syndrome is one of the diseases that hinders the immune system. The DiGeorge Syndrome is present at birth and is caused by a small amount of immune system cells. The results are commonly occurring infections, heart defects, and characteristic facial features.

Interaction

The immune system often has to work with other body systems to keep the body safe from bacteria, pathogens, and parasites.
