Excerpt
Today, man's immune response to infection is regarded as closely integrated, involving different populations of cells. Antigens may first require processing by macrophages before they stimulate lymphocytes that are either thymus-dependent (Tcells) or thymus-independent (B-cells). T-cells comprise the bulk of circulating lymphocytes, are longlived, and may function importantly in immunological memory. When stimulated by antigen they give rise to lymphoblasts, which can be cytotoxic to target cells and release soluble factors thus forming the basis for delayed hypersensitivity. These lymphoblasts do not synthesize antibody but they may cooperate in the immune response to certain antigens by stimulating B-cells to antibody production. B-cells seem to be relatively short-lived and are more restricted to lymphoid tissues. They give rise to plasma cells, which are essentially concerned with the synthesis of immunoglobulins and antibodies. The stimulus to antibody production is the recognition of antigen by cells of the B-lymphocyte line. Some antigens appear to be recognized directly, possibly with the aid of macrophages, while others may require the cooperation of T-cells. In addition to immunocompetent cells and antibodies other substances such as complement may be required to amplify the immune response. This section briefly reviews the present knowledge of acquired malarial immunity in man in the light of these concepts.
