Lymphocytw that originates in the bone marrow and transforms into a plasma cell to secrete antibodies B Cell
Lymph nodes in the armpit axillary nodes
Substances that the body recognizes as foreign;evokes an immue response antigen
Protein produced by B cell lymphocytes to destroy antigens antibody
Mass of lymphatic tissue in the nasopharynx adenoids
Production of antibodies and lymphocytes after exposue to an antigen acquired immunity
Lymph nodes in the neck region cervical nodes
Proteins in the blood that help antibodies and T cells kill their target complement system
Proteins that aid and regulate the immune response (ex interferons and interleukins cytokines
T lymphocyte that directly kills foregn cells (CDS+cell or T8 cell) ctotoxic T cell
Specialized macrophage that digests foreign cells and helps B and T cells to mark antigens for destruction dendritic cell
Lymphocyte that aids B cells & cytotoxic T cells in recognizing antigens & stimiulating antibody production (CD4+cell or T4 cell) helper T cell
Bodies ability to resist foreign organisms & toxins immunity
Antibodies (gamma globulins) such as IgA IgE IgG IgM and IgD that are secreted by plasma cells in response to the prescence of an antigen immunoglobulins
Use of immune cells,antibodies,or vaccines to treat or prevent disease immunotherapy
lymph nodes in the groin region inguinal nodes
Proteins (cytokines) secreted by T cells to aid and regulate the immune response interferons
proteins (cytokines) that stimulate the growth of B and T lymphocytes interleukins
Fluid in the spaces between cells. This fluid becomes lymph when it enters lymph capillaries interstitial fluid
Thin,watery fluid found within lymphatic vessels and collected from tisses throughout the body lymph
tiniest lymphatic vessels lymph capillaries
Lymph nodes,spleen, and thymus gland lymphoid organs
A collection of stationary solid lymphatic tissue along lymph vessels lymph node
Carrier of lymph throughout the body lymph vessel
Large phagocyte found in lymph nodes and other tissues of that body macrophage
Lymph nodes in the area between the lungs in the thoracic cavity mediastinal nodes
Antibody produced in a laboratory to attack antigens and to destroy cells(it is useful in immunotherapy) monodonal antibody
Protection that an individual inherits to fight infection natural immunity
Lymphocyte that produces and secretes antibodies. It originates from B lymphocytes plasma cell
Large lymphatic vessel in the chest that recieves lymph from the upper right part of the body right lymphatic duct
Organ near the stomach that produces,stores,and eliminates blood cells spleen
Lymphocyte that inhabits the activity of B and T lymphocytes. Also called a Treg(regulatory T cell) suppressor T cell
Lymphocyte that origanates in the bone marrow but matures in the thymus gland;it acts directly on antigens to destroy them or produce chemicals(cytotines)such as interferons and interleukins that are toxic to antigens T cell(T lymphocyte)
The ability of T lymphocytes to recognize and accept the bodys own antigens as "self"or friendly tolerance
Large lymphatic vessel in the chest that recieves lymph from below the diaphragm and from the left side of the body above that diiaphragm;it emphties the lymph into veins in the upper chest thoracic duct
Organ in the mediastinum that conditions T lymphocytes to react to foreign cells and aids in the immune response thymus gland
Mass of lymphatic tissue in the back of the oropharynx tonsils
Poisin;a protein produced by certain bacteria,animals,or plants toxin
Exposure of an individual to a foreign protein(antigen) that provokes an immune response vaccination
Weakened of killed microorganism toxins, or other proteins given to induce immunity to infection or disease vaccine
