Chapte 34 Immune System

active immunity developed from exposure of a pathogen through the process of vaccination
allergen pollens in the air that cause an allegic reaction
antibody specific proteins produced to protect a newborn against disease and attack cells relating to any diseases
antihistamine drugs used to prevent and control an allergic reaction
atopy skin or food allergy causing a skin infection
blood titer measured amount of antigen within the bloodstream
boster series vaccines placed into the immune system to build up protection and immunity over an amount of time
colostrum the mother's first 24 hours of milk after labor, which pass antibodies to the young
adema build up of fluid under the skin
ELISA enzyme linked immunosorbent assays, simple test used to measure an antigen or antibody level within the blood
histamine chemical released during an allergic reaction
hypersensitivity increased reaction to allergens causing an allergic reaction
immune system responsible for keeping the body healthy and protecting an animal from disease
immunity term used to mean protection and begins at birth during the nursine process
infection the immune system's reponse to an abnormal condition
inflammation causes white blood cells to build up in the site that is affected and may cause pus to form, redness around the area, warm to hot skin temperatures, increased body core temperatures, edema, and pain
intradermal (ID) injection given into the layers of skin
intramuscular (IM) injection given into the muscle
intranasal (IN) given into the nasal cavity or nostrils
intraocular into the eyes
killed vacine manufactured from dead pathogens of a disease and placed into the animal's body in an inactive form
modified live vaccine made from altered antigens created from disease pathogens that place small amounts of a disease into an animal's body
passive immunity developed through antibodies acquired from one animal or source to another as in colostrum, formula, or plasma
pathogen disease
plasma contains natural immunity antibodies that may be given to the newborns in cases when the young have no received adequate amounts of colostrum
primary response provides antigens that need 3 to 14 days to build an immune response that beings producing antibodies
secondary response provide a quick repeated exposure to an antigen that creates an immunity to prevent disease development
SNAP tes test kit equipment that when mixed with blood is snapped to activate the test
subcutaneous (SQ) injection given under the skin
vaccination placed into the body to build up resistance in the immune system to disease
