Immune System
Immune System is not one organ, but rather a whole complex of organs that work together to clear infections from the body. These are known as lymphoid organs; they are positioned throughout the body and are linked by a separate circulatory system that carries lymph – fluid that contains white blood cells (lymphocytes), which are the actual soldiers in the body's fights with infection.

Lymphocytes attack and destroy diseased cells. They recognize diseased cells by "learning" to spot the signs of various infections. Thus, surviving an infectious disease would usually give a person some degree of immunity against it – which means that the immune system had learnt to recognize its symptoms and is better equipped to destroy the infection.

The anatomy of the penis is actually quite complex. It might be an obvious statement, but the penis is not like the body's other appendages. It consists of sponge-like vascular tissue that fills with blood during an erection. The knobby head of the penis is known as the glans and is usually covered with foreskin in uncircumcised men, or not covered with foreskin – if you are circumcised. The urethra is a the canal in the middle of the penis that carries urine and ejaculate. The penis is supplied with blood via two small arteries and blood leaves the organ via a network of veins on and around it.

The spleen is an organ that is located on the left side of the abdomen and is involved in maintaining healthy immune system. It filters blood of bacteria, tumor cells and any other foreign material. About ten percent of population have an extra spleen, which is called an accessory spleen and is much smaller than the "main" one.

Random Drug Info:
Acyclovir is a medication that is used to treat herpes infections of the skin, lips and genitals, chicken pox and shingles. It comes in the form of ointments, tablets, capsules or liquids. It relieves pain and itchiness and promotes healing; however, it does not cure the condition. Possible (but not common) side effects include headaches, upset stomach, vomiting and diarrhea. Severe side effects, such as severe rash or itching, blood in the urine, stomach pain or fever are even less common, but require prompt medical attention.
