Mechanisms of the second line of defense:
leukocytes and macrophages
natural killer cells
______________ antiparasitic WBC, release histamines, promotes allergies
___________ most numerous phagocytes, produce bactericidal chemicals such as hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and hypochlorite (HClO).
________________ are secreted by cells infected with viruses, alerting neighboring cells and protecting them from becoming infected.
A pyrogen is a substance that causes
Basophils of the blood help to get defensive leukocytes to the site quickly by releasing an anticoagulant called _____ and a vasodilator called ____________.
One characteristic of the immune response is specificity. This means that
immunity response is directed against a particular pathogen or antigen
Vaccination stimulates which type of immunity?
artificial active immunity
T cells achieve immunocompetence in which location?
T cells undergo positive selection in the thymus, which means
they multiply and form clones of identical Tcells programmed to respond to a particular antigen
The serum used for emergency treatment of snakebites stimulates which type of immunity?
artificial passive immunity
Helper T (TH) cells recognize antigens when they are bound to a(n)
Antigen-presenting cells usually display processed antigens to T cells in
Cytotoxic T (TC) cells are like a natural killer (NK) cell because they both
secrete perforin and granzymes
Functions of Antibodies
to render antigens harmless
antibodies mask pathogenic region of antigen
antigen binds to IgM or IgG, antibody changes shape, initiates complement binding; primary defense against foreign cells, bacteria
antibody has 2-10 binding sites; binds to multiple enemy cells immobilizing them
antibody binds antigen molecules (not cells); creates antigen-antibody complex that precipitates, phagocytized by eosinophil
Correct sequence of events in the humoral immune response.
Each immunoglobulin (Ig) has (how many?) __________ antigen-bonding site(s).
Which type constitutes about 80% of circulating antibodies in plasma?
This is the class of immunoglobulin that provides passive immunity to the newborn.
This is the class of immunoglobulin is the most prevalent during the first exposure to the Ag.
This is the class of immunoglobulin that is involved in allergic reaction.
Before B cells secrete antibodies they differentiate into
The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) targets mainly which cells?
Most common allergies are the result of what type of Hypersensitivity?
type 1 (acute)
Beta cell destruction that causes type 1 diabetes mellitus is which type of Hypersensitivity?
type IV delayed
Autoimmune diseases are disorders in which the immune system fails to distinguish ____________ from foreign ones.
The upper respiratory tract extends from_________to____________
Each alveolus is surrounded by a basket of blood capillaries supplied by
Which laryngeal cartilage is the largest?

up to _____ oxygen molecules.
Which term is used to describe a deficiency of oxygen or the inability to utilize oxygen in a tissue?
In which disease, the lungs are infected with Mycobacterium and produce fibrous nodules around the bacteria, leading to progressive pulmonary fibrosis?

Which cells of the respiratory tract produce mucus?
This byproduct of protein catabolism constitutes approximately one-half of all nitrogenous waste is_______________________
Name functions of the kidneys?
secretes renin,erythropoietin,vitamin D
The innermost connective tissue layer protecting the kidney and assisting in staving off infection is known as
The transition from an afferent arteriole to an efferent arteriole occurs in the
Glucose and amino acids are reabsorbed from the glomerular filtrate by
pct proximal convoluted tubule
Renin hydrolyzes angiotensinogen released from the ________ to form angiotensin I.
Atrial natriuretic peptide reduces blood volume and pressure by all of the following means:
dilates and constricts blood vessels
inhibits renin, aldosterone, ADH
inhibits sodium reabsorption
increases glomerular filtration rate
Prior to chemical tests for glycosuria, clinicians checked for sweetness of the urine as a sign of
Which muscle is located in the bladder?
Micturition is another term for
Lithotripsy is a medical procedure used to treat
renal calculi (kidney stones)
What is the most common urinary symptom of diabetes mellitus?
Most of the body water is in which fluid compartment?
