- That branch of chemistry concerned with the various defense mechanisms of the animal organism against infective agents, particularly the response between the body and foreign macromolecules (antigens), and the interaction between the products of the response (antibodies) and the agents that have elicited them. This involves study of the many proteins involved in these responses.
