Background Information
1. Lymphocytes A type of white blood cell (leukocyte) that is of fundamental importance in the immune system because lymphocytes are the cells that determine the specificity of the immune response to infectious microorganisms and other foreign substances
2. Antisera- is blood serum containing polyclonal antibodies.

3. B cells- a type of lymphocyte in the humoral immunity of the adaptive immune system.

4. Third line of defense- The third line of body defense is immune response mechanism in the body. The presence of pathogens in the body triggers the release of this body defense mechanism in form of antigens.

5. Antibodies- is a large Y-shape protein produced by plasma cells that is used by the immune system to identify and neutralize foreign objects such as bacteria and viruses.

6. Agglutination- the clumping of particles.

7. Antigens- is any substance which provokes an adaptive immune response.

8. Blood group- is a classification of blood based on the presence or absence of inherited antigenic substances on the surface of red blood cells (RBCs).

9. Glycoprotein receptor- is an integrin complex found on platelets.

10. Immune response- A system of biological structures and processes within an organism that protects against disease.
