  1. Acute phase repsonse
    BACTERIA induced MACROPHAGES to produce IL-6 and IL-1 -> hepatocytes -> acute phase proteins (C-reactive protein, mannose-binding lectin, SP-A and SP-D)
  2. C-reactive protein
    binds to bacterial and fungal cell walls
  3. Epitopes
    regions of 3D structure on an antigen that ABs bind
  4. Antiserum
    AB production to a specific antigen
  5. O-antigens
    Lipopolysaccarides on the surface of the bacterial cell wall
  6. H-antigens
    flagellar proteins of bacteria
  7. Serotype
    a subclass of a bacterial species that differs in O- and H- antigens
  8. Vaccines
    antigen preparations to stimulae normal immune response (memory cel and secondary memory response)
  9. Neutralization
    AB binding to pathogens or antigens -> preventing harm (ie. binding to host)
  10. Opsonization
    AB binding -> changes surface of pathogen or antigen -> allows for phagocytosis
