    Inside the incredibly complex immunization systems of our bodies the battle against disease is never-ending. Medical science has helped by creating vaccines against the plague, smallpox, typhoid, polio, and other scourges—only to be overtaken by cancer and heart disease. We do not really understand the immune response; but nearly three hundred top scientists are at work researching the whole range of man's complicated defense system, including his reproductive processes. Featured in this film are Dr. Jonas Salk of polio fame; Dr. Rober Guillemin, a biologist studying a once-a-month birth-control pill; Dr. Bernard Cinader, Director of the Institute of Immunology at the University of Toronto; Dr. Edwin Gelgand, an immunologist working with children with systematic deficiencies; Dr. R. Falk, a surgeon experimenting with the treatment of cancer through oral T.B vaccine; and Dr. Thomas Shier of the Salk Institute of Biological Sciences, who is looking for a "cancer vaccine." An impressive array of scientific brain power adds up to an interesting and provocative film.
