  • Lymphocytes
    • B lymphoctyes (B Cells)
      • associated with humoral immunity i.e. immunity involving antibodies that are present in body fluids
      • formed from stem cells and mature in the bone marrow
      • Produces antibodies
      • Responds to foreign material outside body cells
      • Responds to bacteria and viruses
    • T lymphoctyes
      • associated with cell - mediated immunity i.e. immunity involving body cells
      • formed from stem cells found in the bone marrow but mature in the thymus gland
      • Responds to foreign material inside body cells
      • Responds to own cells altered by viruses or cancer and to transplanted tissues
