CSFs stimulate hematopoiesis of red blood cells, platelets, and white blood cells. A live vaccine might cause an infection in a client with a weakened immune system because the system has too few cells to respond rapidly. An antiretroviral agent may reduce destruction of lymphocytes but does not stimulate increased production. IgG is an antibody that can provide passive immunity when injected but will only provide temporary improvement in immunity. (less)Reference:Porth, C. M.

The quality of pleiotropism implies that such cytokines:

You selected:are able to act on different types of cells.CorrectExplanation:Pleiotropism refers to the ability of a cytokine to act on different cell types. However, they cannot act on every type of cell and do not perform multiple functions on the same cell. (less)Reference:Porth, C. M. Essentials of Pathophysiology: Concepts of Altered Health States, 4th ed., Philadelphia: Wolters Kluwer Health/Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2015, Chapter 15: Innate and Adaptive Immunity, p. 323.Chapter 15: Innate and Adaptive Immunity - Page 323Question 9:(see full question)A patient with infectious mononucleosis asks the nurse why the lymph nodes are enlarged. Which of the following is the nurse's appropriate response?You selected:"Your lymph nodes trap and destroy viruses."CorrectExplanation:The lymph nodes remove foreign material from the lymph system before the fluid can enter the bloodstream. Mononucleosis is an infection caused by the Epstein-Barr virus. The lymph nodes trap the virus where the lymphocytes and macrophages can destroy it. Enlargement may occur with increased production of lymphocytes, backup of lymph fluid, or malignancy. (less)Reference:Porth, C. M.

Question 10:(see full question)A 53-year-old female hospital patient has received a kidney transplant following renal failure secondary to hypertension. As part of the teaching while she was on the organ wait list, she was made aware that she would need to take anti-rejection drugs for the rest of her life. Which aspect of the immune system underlies this necessity?You selected:MHC molecules will never develop in the cells of the donor organ and effector cells will be continually stimulated.
