1. Humoral immunity (memory cells, plasma cells) Antibody-mediated immune response

2. Primary Response - pathogen into the bloodstream, two defenses humoral and cell mediated

2.1. Cell Mediated - if a macrophage, a white blood cell whose job it is to protect the body from infection, comes across with a pathogen by noting its foreign protein coat, then it will begin to destroy it. T-helper cell

2.1.1. Second Response - neither the killer T-cells nor the B-cells just die off after they kill the pathogen. They leave behind the memory cells with stay behind to watch for the pathogen. Memory cells- actively acquired specific immunity possesses memory antigen.

3. Reaction Antigen

3.1. Antigen Binding

3.1.1. Antigen presentation stimulate T cells to become either cytotoxic or helper cells

4. Natural Killers - involves proteins call compliments

5. Process Lysis
