Basic Principles of the Immune Response: 

Basic Principles of the Immune Response Types of T-lymphocytes Helper-T cells Killer-T cells Suppressor-T cells Memory-T cells B-cells can also become memory cells

The Immune Response: 

x Helper-T Cell The Immune Response Germ Suppressor-T Cell B-Cell Killer-T Cell Memory-T Cell Antibodies Memory-B Cell Infected human cell x germ Phagocyte (macrophage)

Research has begun to show that: 

Research has begun to show that Higher stress levels tend to lower the amount of antibodies in the bloodstream. Depression can lower the amount of antibodies in the body.
