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
