Where are blood cells manufactured (2 places)
23 of 44
red blood cells
Have active life of about 4 months before they are phagocytosed and replaced
24 of 44
Cells that plug the gaps in damanged blood vessels
25 of 44
Granular leucocytes and agranular leucocytes are red or white blood cells
26 of 44
Granular leucoytes
eosinphils, basophils, and neutrophils
27 of 44
These granular leucoytes release histamine and phagocytise antigen/antibody complexes and destroys parasitic worms and large particles
28 of 44
This granular leucocyte develop into Mast Cells
29 of 44
Mast Cells
Large cells filled with histamin that attract antibody IgE to their surface and when activated they release histamine
30 of 44
These granular leucoytes kills and ingests bacteria and disposes of dead material

These 3 cells make up the lymphocytes
B, T and NKC
32 of 44
T & B Cells
These 2 lymphocyte cells are involved in production of antibodies
33 of 44
T Cells
This lymphocyte cell destroys bacteria, viruses, fungi and cancer cells
34 of 44
Natural Killer Cells
These lymphoyte cells move freely in the body and destroy bacteria and tumour cells
35 of 44
Carried by the blood into tissue then enlarge into macrophages

When this antimicrobial protien is activated it forms a cascade of chemical reactions that enhance phagocytes
37 of 44
this antimicrobial protien inhibits the growth of some bacteria
