Well, think about what is the function of antigen processing and presentation by immune cells. And what are the consequences ? I think when you read about the consequences/reactions that take place in the immune system after these processes, it becomes clear how it helps fighting off an infection.

Il vivait. Il mourut quand il n'eut plus son ange;
La chose simplement d'elle-même arriva,
Comme la nuit se fait lorsque le jour s'en va.
