IMMUNITY, MUCOSAL

Nonsusceptibility to the pathogenic effects of foreign microorganisms or antigenic substances as a result of antibody secretions of the mucous membranes. Mucosal epithelia in the gastrointestinal, respiratory, and reproductive tracts manufacture a form of IgA (IgA, secretory) that serves to protect these ports of entry into the body.
