Chapter 16 -- Part 1: Immunity
The first line of defense is to keep the pathogens on the outside.
The skin, mucus membranes, and certain antimicrobial substances are part of these defenses.
When first-line defenses fail, second-line defenses slow or contain infections.
They include immune cells that attack and destroy cancer, as well as immune cells that produce inflammation.
When the second-line defenses don't contain infections, lymphatics can be used to target specific pathogens for destruction.
It includes a memory component that the body can use in the future to fight that pathogen.
Inflammation is caused by the release of histamines.
Kills parasites with a burst of energy.
The cells are killed via a process called cytolysis or a process called apoptosis.
Some macrophages are fixed in certain organs while others wander.
In the skin and respiratory tract, T cells are presented.
The B cell Agranulocyte is a cell in the immune system.
They are CD4+ cells that bind MHC class II.
T helper cell CTLs kill "nonself" cells.
They are CTLs that bind to MHC class I molecules.
T regulatory destroy cells that do not correctly recognize "self" cells.
A low white blood cell count shows the patient has fewer cells.
A low neutrophil count is an example.
The health care providers count is affected by abnormal blood cell counts.
Low white blood can be used to diagnose infections and other conditions.
They may be caused by cancer treatments and other diseases.
White blood cell counts can be low when a patient has a serious disease.
A high white blood cell count is indicative of a higher number of leukocytes.
This happens when a patient battles a disease.
T cell has HIV.
There is a cancer of the blood.
The higher the white blood cell counts, the higher the mortality among infants.
The first- and second-line defenses are involved innate immunity.
Third-line defenses are involved in adaptive immunity.
Immune actions are not specific.
The immune actions are specific to the pathogens and have a memory component.
The components of fungi and parasites are attached to TLRs.
When the microbes attack our bodies, we defend ourselves by using the PAMPs of microbes, such as theLPS of gram-negativebacteria.
Their products are used to protect against environmental agents that regulate the intensity and duration of immune responses.
There are two types of immunity: dritic cells and other defensive cells.
At birth, cytokines can be present.
The T cells and B cells are involved in adaptive immunity.
You protect us from disease.
Innate immunity doesn't know much about the different cytokines and their functions.
Chapter 17 is innate.
It can handle a particular microbe.
Jacob is back in the doctor's office with immunity but still has a high temperature.
Jacob has a history of recurrent skin infections, which can cause tar infections, fever, and chronical problems.
Jacob was sent for a chest X-ray exam by his doctor after he noticed that his lung sounds weren't white blood cells.
We focus on innate immunity.
The innate system's responses are activated again.
If enough microorganism is present, the Epidermis pathogens are able to penetrate.
Toxic substances may be the cause of this penetration.
