Sample text

There are five immune globulins, designated IgM, IgG, IgA, IgD, and IgE. IMMUNE RESPONSE: The body’s production of anti- bodies or some types of white blood cells in response to foreign substances. IMMUNE SYNAPSE: Before they can help other immune cells respond to a foreign protein or pathogenic organism, helper T cells must first become activated. This process occurs when an antigenpresenting cell submits a fragment of a foreign protein, bound to a Class II MHC molecule (virusderived fragments are bound to Class I MHC molecules), to the helper T cell.

CULL: A cull is the selection, often for destruction, of a part of an animal population. Often done just to reduce numbers, a widespread cull was carried out during the epidemic of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE or mad cow disease) in the United Kingdom during the 1980s. CULTURE: A culture is a single species of microorganism that is isolated and grown under controlled conditions. The German bacteriologist Robert Koch first developed culturing techniques in the late 1870s. Following Koch’s initial discovery, medical scientists quickly sought to identify other pathogens.

INACTIVATED VACCINE: An inactivated vaccine is a vaccine that is made from disease-causing microorganisms that have been killed or made incapable of causing the infection. The immune system can still respond to the presence of the microorganisms. INACTIVATED VIRUS: An inactivated virus is incapable of causing disease but still stimulates the immune system to respond by forming antibodies. INCIDENCE: The number of new cases of a disease or injury that occur in a population during a specified period of time.
