  • The cell-mediated arm of the immune response involves the ingestion and digestion of antigen by antigen-presenting cells such as macrophages. Activated TH cells secrete IL-2, which causes proliferation and activation of cytotoxic T lymphocytes, and TH1 and TH2 cell subsets. TH1 cells also produce IFN- and TNF-, which can directly activate macrophages and NK cells. The humoral response is triggered when B lymphocytes bind antigen via their surface immunoglobulin. They are then induced by TH2-derived IL-4 and IL-5 to proliferate and differentiate into memory cells and antibody-secreting plasma cells. Regulatory cytokines such as IFN- and IL-10 down-regulate TH2 and TH1 responses, respectively. Immune response

  • Purpose of immunosuppressive drugs

    Prevention of organ transplant rejection

    Treatment of autoimmune diseases

  • Immunological Rejection Major Histocompatibility Complex () MHC

    Rejections: Antibody mediated T cells mediated

    Hyperacute rejectione.g., Blood type mismatchAcute Graft RejectionDirect recognition of allogeinic MHC; rejection about 10 daysChronic rejectionTake many months to years. Due to failure of immunosuppressants

  • hepatitis B vaccinea small glycoprotein, hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg)child's immune system recognizes HBsAg as foreign produces antibodieswhen infected with hepatitis B virus the antibodies recognize the protein and stimulate the immune system to produce large quantities of specific antibodies that attach to and destroy the virus and prevent the disease.

  • vaccination

    a child receives vaccination, most often before leaving the hospital after birth. the second and third HBV immunizations are administered by the age of 18 months, in conjunction with other routine childhood vaccinations.
