    • Nonspecific internal defenses, specific internal defenses, external barriers
    • Nonspecific internal defenses, external barriers, specific internal defenses

    • External barriers, nonspecific internal defenses, specific internal defenses

  3. You have a tickle in your nose and you sneeze. This is your bodys response to:
    • White blood cells attacking a foreign invader and accumulating in your nose.
    • The reflex of a foreign particle going down the esophagus and getting digested in the stomach.

    • It would increase the flow of blood to the legs, bringing more white blood cells to the area and an enhanced specific immune response.
    • It would invoke an inflammatory response, releasing chemicals that promote healing of the tissue.

  6. When you have a fever, are you exhibiting a specific immune response?
    • No. Fever is not part of the specific immune response.
    • No, but fever is necessary to induce a specific immune response.
    • Yes. Fever is the first stage of the specific immune response.
    • Yes. Fever is the last stage of the specific immune response.
