SAQ: Classification of Hypersensitivity Reactions.
Overactivation of the immune system is known as hypersensitivity. Hypersensitivity has tissue-damaging effects and these are referred to as 'immunopathologic'. Coombs and Gell classified hypersensitivity into four types in 1958, based on the immunologic mechanism underlying the tissue damaging reaction.
