Hello,
	I don't know if this is the correct group for this question, but 
I was wondering, how do the haematophages, insects in particular, "defend" 
themselves from all the elements of the immune system that are 
found in the blood?, since there are specialized cells whose "jobs" 
consist in harming unfamiliar elements, do the haematophages suffer some 
kind of damage?.
	If anyone can answer me or suggest some bibliography, I will be 
very grateful. Thanks,
