Chapter 16 "The Lymphatic System" Test questions

question that review various parts of the lymphatic system
looks like a vein
a lymphatic vessel
the ducst that drain the lymphatic trunks are
the thoracic and right lymphatic ducsts
the formation of lymph increases
the osmotic pressure in tissure fluid
blood vessels in a lymph noed pass through the
the lymph nodes in the axillary recieve lymph from the
arm and mammary glands
the spleen is the
largest lymphatic organ, has nodules, and phagocytic cells
a specific body defense mechanism
produced in respones to viruses
the drugs used to reduce tissues rejection interfere with the reciepiants
immune response
the most active phaocytic cells are
neutrophils and monocytes
the cells that are primarly resonsible for immuinty are
lymphocytes and macrophages
resonsible for cell mediated immuinty
T cells
the most abundant immunoglobin
Immunoglobin G
the lymphatic system doesn't transport horomone to
the intestinal smooth muscle
the resistance acquired after developing a disease is called
naturally acquired immuinty
the anibodies in allergic reactions belong to the
Immunoglobin E
lymph differs from plasma because
plasma has more proteins
lymph nodes are all over the body except in
the central nervous system
the spleen is a lymph node except
it filters blood
followin a primary immune response the memory cells are just
B cells
foreign particles injected in to the skin
reach the lymphatic system rapidly
if lymphatic tissue is removed from the axillary it produces
the suprotrocheacler lymph nodes are located close to
your elbows and knees
cytotoxic T cells are produced
to destroy viruses and cancer cells and release a substance that effects the cell membrane
an infant gest immumoglobin A from
its mother's breast milk
secreated by epidermal cells
Interleukin 1
injections of gamma glboulin produce
an artifical acquired passive immuinty
the primary functions of the lymphactic system are
returning proteins to the blood stream and transporting foreign substances th lymph nodes
AIDs infects
T cell, nuerogalial and endotheial cells
interferes with the T cell activity
in an auto immune disease the response is directed
to self substances
Insulin dependent diabetes mellitus is an
auto immune disease
forced out of the blood plasma and has no proteins
tissue fluid
absorbed into lymph capillaries and is rich in proteins
a lymphatic obstruction can cause an
edem because the proteins accumulate and incresaes the osmoctic pressure
a condition caused by a accumulation of fluid
partially encapsuled lymphatic nodules in pharynx
the centers of production of lymphocytes
lymph nodes
simmulate a primary immune resonse but doesn't cause the symptoms of the disese
tissue fluid that has entered the lymphatic capilliaries is called
disease causeing agent
foreign substances that produce an immune response
phagocytic cells that remain in a fixed posistions
reticular endothelium
an auto immune disease that infects many organ systmes not just the skeletal
common in older people
auto immune diseases
AIDs attack
T Cells
lymphocytes undergo a proccess in the thymus to produce________
___________ Stay in the red bone marrow
T cells
B cells
a population of lymphocytes that are alike and respond to antigens
a clone
the __________ region of an Ig react with a specific antigen and the ______ region of the Ig bond to the Ig structures
lymph nodes filtrate
foreign substances, celluar debris, and produce lymphocytes
resembles a large lymph node divided in to lobules
the spleen
attract neutrophils and macrophages where antigens are located
chemotaxis activated enzymes
alter cell membran to make it supceptiable to phagocytosis
opsonizations enzymes
digest membranes of foreign cells that are ruptured
Lysis activacted enzymes
