Pathogenesis of Hypersensitivity requires some more effort.
By Shivam P. on 26. April 2020 for Hypersensitivity and Autoimmune Disease

The lectures were great. However, for someone who has gone through Robbins and Cottrans' Pathological Basis of Diseases, the pathogenesis of Hypersensitivity reactions seemed a bit insufficient.

Excellent communication
