Type of hypersensitivity where the immune system attacks the body's own antigens
Type of hypersensitivity where the damage is due to T cells and macrophages attacking the target
Type of hypersensitivity due to antigen-antibody complexes that deposit in blood vessels
Type of hypersensitivity that involves IgE and mast cell degranulation
Type of hypersensitivity that does not involve antibodies
Type of hypersensitivity that can cause anaphylactic shock
Which type of hypersensitivity reaction is NOT involved in autoimmunity?
Which two types of hypersensitivity reaction are involved in lupus (SLE)?
What type of cell largely responsible for type I hypersensitivity responses?
Which one of the following is not an example of a type IV hypersensitivity?
- latex allergy
- Contact dermatitis (e.g., contact with poison ivy)
- a positive tuberculin skin test
- hemolytic disease of the newborn
hemolytic disease of the newborn
What is an example of a systemic autoimmune disease?
What is a common treatment for type III hypersensitivity reactions?
anti-inflammatory steroid treatments
What is an immune complex is an aggregate of?
antibody and antigen molecules
Type I hypersensitivities require what initial priming event to occur?
What is the main mediator/initiator of type II hypersensitivity reactions?
Inflammatory molecules are released by mast cells in type I hypersensitivities; type II hypersensitivities, however, are characterized by what?
cell lysis (cytotoxicity)
