Involved in the cell-mediated response
Tlymphocytes
1 of 9
Involved in the humoral response
Blymphocytes
2 of 9
The ingestion of bacteria or other material by phagocytes
Phagocytosis
3 of 9
Type of b-cell that secrete antigens and only survive for a few days; responsible for the destruction of antigens
Plasma cells
4 of 9
Type of b-cell responsible for the secondary immune response; if they encounter the same antigen twice they divide rapidly to prevent invasion
Memory cells
5 of 9
Short-term immunity which results from the intorduction of antibodies into individuals from an outside source (e.g. maternal antibodies to a fetus)
Passive immunity
6 of 9
Results from an individual becoming infected with a disease under normal circumstances; the body produces it's own antibodies to achieve immunity
Natural active immunity
7 of 9
Involves inducing an immune response without the individual suffering symptoms; forms the basis of vaccination
Artificial active immunity
8 of 9
Arises when a sufficiently large proportion of the population have been vaccinated to make it difficult for pathogens to spread
Herd immunity
