Type 2--activates B cells
Two types of immunization
Passive (instant immunity, can decay rapidly, transfer of pre-formed antibodies i.e. prevent rabies)
Active (administer antigen, requires days to weeks to develop)
Where are MHC I (recognized by CD8) found?
all nucleated cells
Where are MHC II (recognized by CD4) found?
B cells, dendritic cells, and phagocytic cells
pruritis (itching) of nasal and oral mucosa
angioedema (blood vessel wall swelling)
tachycardia (elevated heart rate)
asphyxia along with skin symptoms of urticaria (hives)
