    The T cells are one thing responsible for our immunity.

    They are produced in the Thymus and are a special type of white blood cell (lymphocytes). There are various types of T cells which all play a major role in the immune system and warding off infection.

    However, if you want more information go to wikipedia.

    White blood cells support out immunity. Whenever we get sick and go to the Dr. they might do a blood test, which checks for the abundance of White cells, this over abundance means that the body is attempting to kill a microorganism.

    Directly, our white blood cells, I suppose. There are different types of white blood cell that perform certain jobs - some will 'lock on' to (and therefore 'stop') invading bodies, for example, while others will come and engulf the invading bodies and destroy them.

    ...I don't know how technical a response you need, though!
