Immunity that is genetically determined and present at birth is called ________ immunity.

1. active
2. natural passive
3. passive

5. auto

The release of endogenous pyrogen (or interleukin-1) by active macrophages would:

1. produce a fever
2. cause inflammation
3. activate complement.
4. opsonize pathogens
5. activate antibodies

Adaptive defenses depend on the activities of:

1. Monocytes
2. Leukocytes
3. Agranulocytes

The classic pathway of complement activation begins when the protein C1 binds:

3. passive immunization
4. natural immunity
5. alloimmunity

Interleukins do all of the following, except:

4. elevate body temperature
5. stimulate collagen synthesis

Class II MHC molecules are found only on which of the following?

1. all body cells with a nucleus
2. red blood cells
3. granulocytes and microphages
4. lymphocytes and antigen-presenting cells
5. liver cells and macrophages in the spleen

Characteristics of adaptive defenses include:

1. Versatility
2. Tolerance
3. Memory
4. Specificity
5. all of the answers are correct

Helper T cells do all of the following, except:

1. trigger B-cell division, plasma cell maturation, and antibody production
2. provide a rapid response to a future exposure to the antigen
3. enhance production of memory and cytotoxic T cells
4. attract macrophages to the affected area
5. enhance nonspecific defenses

In order for a lymphocyte to respond to an antigen, the antigen must:
