Marieb and Hoehn
Lymphatic Vessels
Collect excess fluid from interstitial spaces

Arteries, blood capillaries, lymhatic vessels, subclavian vein
Which of the following represents a logical sequence of structures that contribute to the return of fluid in the blood via the lymphatic system

Which of the following contribute(s) to the flow of lymph through lymphatic vessels
bacteria, virus, and mismatched red blood cells
which of the following would the body perceive as an antigen
at the locations where lymphatic collecting vessels converge

Bacteria, Large Proteins and Interstitial Fluid
Can enter Lymph Capillaries
An Advantage to having reticular connective tissue in lymph nodes would be that
The loose organization of reticular connective tissue provides niches for macrophages and lymphocytes, lymph filters through the nodes and is exposed to lymphocytes and macrophages, and lymphocytes cycle to various areas of the body and back to lymph nodes
fewer efferent lymphatic vessels than afferent lymphatic vessels
Lymph tends to stall inside lymph nodes due to
The largest lymphoid organ
Blood filtering; immunity

T Lymphocyte maturation
The thymus is important for

Which of the following is not a mechanical barrier to pathogen invasion
The respiratory burst
In order for some phagocytes to destroy certain pathogens they must have ingested (like tuberculosis), ____must be deployed
They are all vasodilators
What characteristics do all inflammatory chemicals share
An increase in white blood cell number at sites of injury, which is characteristic of inflammation, is called ____
Red, hot, swollen and painful

bacterial cell membrane lysis
The basic mechanism employed by complement to fight bacterial infections is
The process by which phagocytes exit capillaries and enter injured tissue is called
A patient has contracted the hepatitis c virus. Which of the following drug therapies might be effective
The process of attaching complement proteins to the bacterial cell wall to enhance phagoctosis is called
An increase in body temperatures set point
What would be the body's response if the hypothalamus detected pyrogens?
The presence of____ proteins makes it possible for our immune system to differentiate between our cells and those that are foreign
___become antigenic if they attach themselves to larger proteins
Which of the following materials or compounds wold be the most highly immunogenic
cell-mediated; humoral
The adaptive immune system involves three major cell types: antigen-presenting cells, T cells, which constitute ____ immunity, and B cells, which govern____ immunity
Certain T cells are required to activate B cells into antibody-producing cells
Why would a patient with no thymus lack an effective humoral immune response?
bone marrow; thymus
Lymphocytes are educated within primary lymphoid organs. B cells are educated in the ___ white T cells are educated in the ___
memory cells
The basis of immunity is the presence of
In which class of molecules are antibodies classified
Plasma Cells
During clonal selection of B cells, those B cells with complementary membrane receptors to the invading antigen will differentiate into
artificially acquired active
A patient has been immunized against chicken pox. What type of immunity is this?
Of the following classes of antibodies, which can cross the placenta
Antibodies immobilize antigens and mark them for destruction
Which of the following best describes an antibody's mode of action
Cytotoxic T cells induce cells lysis with perforin, a protein similar to complenents MAC
How is the cytoxic T cell mechanism of action similar to that of complement?
Antigen-presenting cells link anitgenic peptides to MHC proteins in which T cells will attach
How are T cells "introduced" to antigens?
autoimmune disease
When antibodies develop against a a person's own cells, this is an example of a(n)
Major function of the lymphatic system
return of tissue fluid to the cardiovascular system is the______
Peyer's patches
Aggregates of lymphoid nodules located in the wall of the ileum are
In addition to its lymphoid function, this organ holds a reservoir of platelets
reticular connective tissue
The structural framework of lymphoid tissue is offered by
This structure, attached to the cecum, is in an ideal location to destroy bacteria before it migrates into the large intestine
