Diagnostic reagents useful for detecting antigen by the coagglutination may be prepared by binding antibody to killes staphylococcal cells via the Fc receptor of staphylococcal protein A. The class os antibody bound by this protein is IgG
A major advantage of passive immunization os opposed to active immunization is that antibody is available more quickly
The strengh with which a multivalent antibody binds a multivalent antigen is termed the avidity
How does the secondary immune response differ from the primary immune response? IgG is the predominant antibody classproduced in the secondary immune response. the antibody levelsproduced are higher in the secondary immune response. The lag phase is shorter in the secondary immune response
After activation of the complement system, leukocytes & macrophages are attractedto the site of complement activation by C5a
The type of immunity that follows the injection of an antigen is termed active
The type of immunity that follows the injection of antibodies synthesized by another individual or animal is termed passive
Male sterility may be caused by an autoantibodyagainst sperm cells. The body can make these antibodies because spermcell antigens develop after self-tolerance is induced
The antibody most frequently present in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is directed against nuclear antigen
