Chapter Fourteen Lymphatic and Immune Systems Chapter 14
In this chapter you will Identify the structures and analyze terms related to the lymphatic system. Learn terms that describe the basic elements of the immune system. Apply your new knowledge to understanding medical terms in their proper context.
Lymph Watery fluid that surrounds body cells and flows in a system of lymph vessels Contains WBCs, lymphocytes and monocytes. Contains water, salts, sugars, and waste products of metabolism.
Lymph Nodes Clusters of lymph tissues. Functions of lymph system Transports proteins back to blood Transports proteins back to blood Absorb fats and transport back to blood Absorb fats and transport back to blood Important role is immune system Important role is immune system
Interstitial fluid and lymph capillaries – page 547
Figure 14-2 p. 547 – Blood and lymph circulation
SPLEEN – page 550 Destroys old red blood cells. Filters microorganisms and other foreign material out of the blood. Activates lymphocytes during blood filtration. B cells produce antibodies. Stores blood, especially erythrocytes (RBCs) and platelets
Specialized Lymphatic Organs: organs composed of lymph tissue Thymus gland Located in the upper mediastinum between the lungs Located in the upper mediastinum between the lungs Secretes a hormone called thymosin which stimulates the bone marrow to produce T lymphocytes, which are important in the immune response Secretes a hormone called thymosin which stimulates the bone marrow to produce T lymphocytes, which are important in the immune response
THYMUS GLAND – page 550 Provides immunity in fetal life and in early years of growth. Makes cells immunocompetent in early life. Early removal from an animal impairs its ability to make antibodies and produce cells to fight antigens.
Specialized Lymphatic Organs: organs composed of lymph tissue Tonsils Help protect against bacteria and other harmful substances that may enter the body through the nose or mouth Help protect against bacteria and other harmful substances that may enter the body through the nose or mouth
Immune Response – page 533 B lymphocytes are responsible for humoral immunity. originate in bone marrow from stem cells originate in bone marrow from stem cells transform into plasma cells to produce immunoglobulins, antibodies that neutralize antigens transform into plasma cells to produce immunoglobulins, antibodies that neutralize antigens
Immune Response (cont’d) T lymphocytes are responsible for cell- mediated immunity. The function of T cells varies: Cytotoxic T cells (T8 cells) attach to and attack antigens. Cytotoxic T cells (T8 cells) attach to and attack antigens. Other T cells secrete interferons and interleukins that help cells respond to antigens. Other T cells secrete interferons and interleukins that help cells respond to antigens. Helper T cells promote antibody synthesis by B cells and stimulate other T cells. Helper T cells promote antibody synthesis by B cells and stimulate other T cells. Suppressor T cells inhibit B and T cells. Suppressor T cells inhibit B and T cells.
Immunotherapy Examples Vaccines: killed tumor cells produce cytokines that enhance the immune response Dendritic cells: cultured and exposed outside body and reinfused Monoclonal antibodies (MoAb): multiple copies of cells or genes that kill tumor cells Donor lymphocyte infusions: T cells, infused after allogeneic stem cell or bone marrow transplant, attack tumor (leukemia treatment)
Vocabulary – pages 554-555 Adenoids – mass of lymphatic tissue in nasopharynx Antibody – Protein produced by b cell lymphocytes to destroy antigens Antigen – substance body recognizes as foreign.
Vocabulary Cervical nodes – lymph nodes in neck region. Inguinal nodes – lymph nodes in the groin region. Lymph – thin watery fluid found in lymphatic vessels
splenomegaly splen/o: spleen -megaly - enlargement Enlargement of the spleen
splenectomy splen/o-ectomy Removal of the spleen.
hypersplenism hyper- excessive splen/o - spleen -ism – condition of Condition of excessive spleen A syndrome marked by splenomegaly (associated with anemia, leukopenia and thrombocytopenia). A syndrome marked by splenomegaly (associated with anemia, leukopenia and thrombocytopenia).
thymoma thym/o: thymus gland -oma Tumor of the thymus gland malignant malignant
thymectomy thym/o-ectomy Removal of the thymus gland.
anaphylaxis ana-: away from, backward, up, apart -phylaxis: protection Away from protection An exaggerated, life-threatening, hypersensitivity reaction to foreign proteins An exaggerated, life-threatening, hypersensitivity reaction to foreign proteins
interstitial fluid inter-: between -stitial: pertaining to standing or positioned Pertaining to fluid that is positioned between (body cells) Eventually becomes lymph fluid Eventually becomes lymph fluid
Disorders of the Lymphatic and Immune Systems Immunodeficiency Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) destroys T helper cells (CD4+ cells) destroys T helper cells (CD4+ cells) opportunistic infections opportunistic infections malignancies malignancies (Kaposi sarcoma, Wasting syndrome)
HYPERSENSITIVITY – page 560 Allergy: abnormal sensitivity acquired by exposure to antigen Ranges from Ranges from allergic rhinitis or hay fever to anaphylaxis Other allergies: Other allergies: atopic dermatitis asthma urticaria (hives)
