As we get older the arteries become stiff with calcifications and an outside stimulus for instance like when shaving can cause an exagerated response, dropping bp so much that we get nauseated and even faint. ...Read more
Type II hypersensitivity: Or cytotoxic reactions, are antibody dependent, IgG or IgM binds to the own body cell surface after being altered by a protein, so the immune system recognizes as non-self (foreign) attacks and destroys the cell by fixing a protein called complement, which in turn forms the Membrane Attack Complex and destroy the cell, the most famous is hemolytic anemias and some auto immune diseases ...Read more
