The flashcards below were created by user Laurenwindas on FreezingBlue Flashcards. What would you like to do?


  1. What cells play a role in Cell Mediated Immunity?
    T-Helper 1 Cells
  2. What type of cells play a role in Antibody Mediated Immunity?
    T-helper 2 cells (TH2) and cells 

    - Both of the above are lymphocytes
  3. What immune cells are involved in an anaphylactic response?
    • 1) Basophils
    • 2) Mast Cells
  4. What are two physiological effects of anaphylaxis?
    • Bronchoconstriction
    • Vasodilation
  5. What is the medical treatment of anaphylaxis?
    Epi-Pen!
  6. What immune cells are involved in an inflammatory response?
    • Basophils
    • Eosinophils
    • Macrophages
  7. What are interferons?
    Proteins produced by a cell infected with a virus (they help to stop replication of viruses in other cells)
  8. What are cytokines?
    Small types of proteins secreted by leukocytes (WBCs).

    An example of a cytokine is an Interleukin.
  9. Define Opsonization.
    This is specific to Macrophages.

    This is when invaders are 'tagged' for phagocytosis via a complement protein.

    Opsonization is promoting the attachment of a phagocyte to a microbe.
  10. Which cells are involved in cell mediated immunity?
    T-Helper 1 cells.
