Question 7Type: MCSAA patient tells the nurse that he's happy that his wife did not "catch" the same cold from which he has recently recovered. The nurse realizes that what most likely occurred in his wife?1. Release of cytokines2. Proliferation of CD 8 cells3. T-helper 1 stimulation to kill unidentified cells4. T-helper 2 memory of a previous exposure to the same virus that caused the patient's illnessCorrect Answer: Rationale 1: Cytokines are chemical messages that are produced by cells and communicate with other cells in the body. Cytokine release would have occurred if the wife did catch the cold.Rationale 2: CD 8 cells slow or stop the immune response.Rationale 3: T-helper 1 cells help upregulate immune activity and produce chemicals to destroy mutant cells. This may have occurred, but this is not the most complete answer.Rationale 4: T-helper 2 cells stimulate B cells to make antibodies to specific antigens. These cells then have a "memory" of exposure that will lead to a quick response if another exposure occurs. The wife must have had a

previous exposure to the same virus that caused the patient's cold, but because of the "memory," the body immediately eliminated the cold virus.
