AN ANTIGEN THAT PRODUCES ALLERGIC REACTIONS. ANY MICROSCOPIC PARTICLE THAT CAUSES AN ALLERGIC REACTION
ALLERGEN
ANY OF A VARIETY OF Y SHAPED PROTEINS IN THE BLOOD THAT ARE GENREATED TO PRODUCE IMMUNITY AGAINST SPECIFIC ANTIGENS LIKE MICROORGANISMS OR THEIR TOXINS
ANTIBODY
DISEASE CAUSING ORGANISM OR SUBSTANCE
ANTIGEN
A COMPLEX SERIES OF BLOOD PROTEINS PRODUCED IN THE LIVER WHOSE ACTIONS COMPLEMENTS THE WORK OF ANTIBODIES. DESTROY BACTERIA PRODUCE INFLAMMATIONN AND REGULATES IMMUNE REACTIONS
COMPLEMENT
A PRECISE SEQUENCE OF EVENTS USUALLY TRIGGERED BY ANTIGEN ANTIBODY COMPLEX IN WHICH EACH COMPONENT OF THE COMPLEMENT SYSTEM IS ACTIVATED IN TURN
COMPLEMENT CASCADE
SUBSTANCE LIKE STERIODS AND CORTICOSTERIODS IN THE BODY THAT CAN SUPRESS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
HORMONE
IMMUNE PROTECTION PROVIDED BY SOLUBE FACTORS SUCH AS ANTIBODIES WHICH CIRCULATE IN THE BODYS FLUIDS OR HUMORS PRIMARILY SERUM AND LYMPH
HUMORAL IMMUNITY
A CLUSTER OF INTERLOCKING ANTIGENS AND ANTIBODIES
IMMUNE COMPLEX
REACTIONS OF IMMUNE SYSTEM TO FOREGIN SUBSTANCES
IMMUNE RESPONSE
RELATIVE STATE OF RESISTANCE OF THE HOST TO A SPECIFIC PATHOGENS
IMMUNITY
A TEST USING ANTIBODIES TO IDENTIFY AND QUANTIFY SUBSTANCES. OFTEN THE ANTIBODY IS LINKED TO A MARKER SUCH AS A FLUROSCENT MOLECULE, A RADIOACTIVE MOLECULE OR AN ENYZME
IMMUNOASSAY
A DEFENSE MECHANISM THAT MUST BE TURNED ON BY THE HOSTS EXPOSURE TO A PATHOGEN. INDUCED DEFENSES ARE ACQUIRED THROUGH EXPOSURE TO PATHOGENS AND BUILD THROUGHOUT LIFE
INDUCIBLE DEFENSE
PROTEIN MOLECULES LOCATED ON CELL MEMBRANES THAT IDENTIFY YOU TO YOUR OWN IMMUNE SYSTEM. GROUP OF GENES THAT CONTROLS SEVERAL ASPECTS OF IMMUNE RESPONSE
MAJOR HISTOCOMPATIBILTY COMPLEX
ANTIBODIES PRODUCED BY A SINGLE CELL OR ITS IDENTICAL PROGENY SPECIFIC FOR A GIVEN ANTIGEN. AS A TOOL FOR BINDING TO SPECIFIC PROTEINS MOLECULES MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES ARE INVALUABLE IN RESEARCH MEDINCING AND INDUSTRY
MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES
IMMUNITY CONFERRED BY AN ANTIBODY PRODUCED IN ANOTHER HOST. THIS TYPE OF IMMUNITY CAN BE ACQUIRED NATURALLY BY AN INFANT FROM ITS MOTHER OR ARTIFICALLY BY ADMINISTRATION OF AN ANTIBODY CONTAINING PREPARTION
PASSIVE IMMUNITY
SUBSTANCE COMPOSED OF DEAD WHITE BLOOD CELLS AND OTHER CELLULAR DEBRIS
PUS
SUBSTANCE PRODUCED BY MACROPHAGES THAT KILL TUMOR CELLS AND PROMOTES THE CREATION OF NEW BLOOD CELLS IN AREAS THAT HAVE BEEN DAMAGED
TUMOR NECROSIS FACTOR
