  1. a bacterium, virus, or other microorganism that
    can cause disease.
    pathogen
  2. the accumulation of lymph in soft tissue with accompanying swelling, often of the extremities: sometimes caused by inflammation, obstruction, or removal of lymph channels.
    lymphedema
  3. abnormal enlargement of
    the lymph nodes.
    lymphadenopathy
  4. a cell that prcesses
    antigens and displays them, bound to MHC proteins; essential to the initiation
    of a normal immune response.
    antigen presenting cell
  5. Immunity that is naturally present and is not due to prior sensitization to an antigen from, for example, an infection or vaccination. Since it is not stimulated by specific antigens, innate immunity is generally nonspecific.
    innate immunity
  6. resistance manifested by a species (or by races, families, and individuals in a species) that has not been immunized (sensitized, allergized) by previous infection or vaccination; much of it results from body mechanisms that are poorly understood but differ from those responsible for the altered reactivity associated with the specific nature of acquired immunity; in general, innate immunity is nonspecific and is not stimulated by specific antigens.
    nonspecific immunity
  7. a substance capable of inducing the production of antibodies.
    antigen
  8. A globular protein produced by plasma cells that will bind to specific antigens and promote their destruction or removal from the body.
    antibody
  9. Natural active immunity develops as a result of natural exposure to antigen
    Immunity conferred after recovery from pulmonary tuberculosis
  10. Artificial active immunity develops after administration of antigen to prevent disease
    DPT vaccination of children
  11. Natural passive immunity acquires antibodies from mother
    Maternal antibodies transferred to infants at birth
  12. Artificial passive immunity conferred by administration of antibodies
    Injection of antirabies immunoglobulins
  13. pale regions in the interior of lymphoid tissues or lymphoid nodules, where cell division occurs that produce additional lymphocytes.
    germinal center
  14. natural killer cells, 5% to 10% of circulating lymphocytes, responsible for immune surveillance; attack foreign cells, virus cells, and cancer cells.
    NK cell
  15. peptides released by virus-infected cells especially lymphocytes, that slow viral replication and make other cells more resistant to viral infection.
    interferon
  16. an activated B cell that secretes antibodies,
    plasmocyte.
    plasma cell
  17. Filters lymph (removes debris, pathogens, antigens)
    lymph node
  18. removal of RBC/ blood components, storage of iron recycled from RBC, and immune response
    spleen
  19. produce immunity cells
    thymus
  20. formation of red blood cells (erythrocytes), white blood cells (leukocytes), and blood platelets.
    red bone marrow
  21. redness
    rubor
  22. swelling
    tumor
  23. warm(hot)
    calor
  24. pain
    dolor
