  author={Giuditta Franco and Vincenzo Manca},
  booktitle={Workshop on Membrane Computing},
A formal description is developed for the phenomenon of leukocyte recruitment that plays a critical role in the immune response. Due to its complex nature and capability to rapidly adapt to the attack of infectious agents, the immune system may be considered a typical example of complex adaptive system [9]. Here the leukocyte selective recruitment, crucial in immunity, is modeled as a dynamical system of interactions between leukocytes and endothelial cells, where a special kind of membrane… CONTINUE READING
