      This is a really good and complicated question. Our body has the capacity to fight against infections with different cell types that works as a team, so it is really difficult to choose just one. For example, the dendritic cells are cells that detect any substance that could be a potential risk to our body, and present it to the T cells that decide how the response against this molecule could be. All of them play a main role in fighting infections
