Craig Nutter Microbiology- Homework 3 Lab Section: 0011 1. The Immune system is able to raise antibodies against S. pneumonia through use of T- independent antibodies. The body also is also able to fight the infection by multiple B cells attaching to the capsule of S. pneumonia and induces the B cells to form antibodies from the binded receptors that are discharged. The body would not be immune to a second infection since there was no activation of memory cells (T H ), therefore when a second infection occurs the body does not “remember” being previously infected and is therefore susceptible to the infection. 2. One type of test that could be performed in order to determine the type of hypersensitivity is an indirect Elisa which detects for antibodies present when introduced to a specific allergen. From this, it can be determined whether a type one or type four hypersensitivity is present. Type one hypersensitivity occurs if antibodies are present, as determined from the Elisa, and in which case anti-histamines can be used as treatment.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
