what do u mean by humoral mediated imunity and cell mediated immunity


Dear Student

Cell mediated immunity is the type of response that allows cells of our immune system (T cells) to recognize the infected cells in our body. The T cells seek out these cells, and destroy them, thereby killing the infectious agent within them.

Humoral immune response refers to a response by certain cells of the immune system (B cells) which have the ability to make antibodies. Antibodies are proteins that have a particular ability to bind to a foreign protein.

Hope this helps!
