embryonic cell
blast/o
infection occuring in a person with a weakened immune system and cause by a microorganism that, under normal conditions, would not bring about a disease
oppourtunistic infection
study of disease state associated with overreactivity or underreactivity of the immune respose
immunopathology
able to develop an immune respose; able to recognize antigens and respond to them
immunocompetent
acquired specific resistance, mediated by B cells, that produces antibodies that bind to and dispose of antigens
