What are LE cells?

What are LE cells?

LE Cells: A neutrophil or macrophage (type of white blood cell) that has been engulfed the denatured nuclear material of another cell. The denatured material is an absorbed hematoxylin body (also called an LE body). They are a characteristic of lupus erythematosus, but also found in similar connective tissue disorders. LE Test for lupus: positive when 10 or more of these cells are seen under microscope ...Read more

What are b-cells and its functions?

What are b-cells and its functions?

Antibodies: B cells are immune cells that develop in the Bone marrow and mature in the lymphoid organs. They make antibodies that protect our bodies from foreign invaders such as viruses. Most vaccines work by stimulating our body's B cells to make antibodies so that they can already be present to protect us when we are exposed to an actual viral infection. ...Read more

What are T cells?

What are T cells?

Type of lymphocyte: When lymphocytes were first recognized as a small population of the white blood cells, Bob Good divided them into T and B cells. The T cells were matured in the Thymus and the B cells in the Bursa of Fabricius found in the chicken. The B cells produce antibody andthe T cells contain cells ie. Th 1, making IL2 and the Th2 IL 10. The TH 1 targets bacteria and viruses. ...Read more

If the body decides that it is a good antibody, the B-cell moves to the bone marrow making that antibody for years. Some T-cells kill damaged cells (eg after viral infection or pre-tumor cells). Other T-cells act as messenger guiding inflammation ...Read more

Helper t cells do what?

Helper t cells do what?

Manage immunity: Helper T cells are unit commanders that instruct soldiers on the front lines. They help B cells secrete protective antibodies. They help "killer" T cells attack infected cells. They also influence the "flavor" of the immune response to favor more of an allergic-type response versus more of a flu-like response. They are CD4 positive cells that are destroyed in HIV/AIDS leading to immunodeficiency. ...Read more
