Naive t-cell

naive T-cell

A t-cell arising from the immune system's production of fresh cells in the bone marrow. Naive T-cells respond to newly encountered pathogens containing antigens the immune system has not processed before. The naive T-cells' activation and proliferation create an acquired immune response to the newly encountered pathogenic agent. After the disease is eradicated, a portion of the T-cell population engendered by the activated naive T-cells constitutes a reservoir of memory cells, which proliferate and respond very quickly to any recurrence of the disease.

See: both memory T-Cell and immune System.

Re: The Bioethical dilema of Genetic modification

Is it naive of the human race to tamper with a code that took billions of years to be be tested, tried, and fine tuned ? You have a gigantic misconception. The “code” is NOT “fine tuned”. The “code” is what works well enough ...

The Bioethical dilema of Genetic modification

Hello all, I thought I would start my membership here by asking a question. Is it naive of the human race to tamper with a code that took billions of years to be be tested, tried, and fine tuned ? One may make some case for hermetically sealed laboratories, but that ...
