Genetics play a significant role in immunity

In a recent research by King's College London, they have found that nearly three quarters of our traits that grant us immunity are from our genetic makeup. Researchers found that adaptive immune traits in our immune system are influenced heavily on our genes. This finding could help greatly for future research on treatments for different diseases in the human body. They also noted that environmental influences play a key role as well on shaping our innate immune system.

This finding can be key to us in the future for discovering new ways to treat certain diseases like arthritis.
