  • Antibody-mediated Immunity: SFAF
    Humoral Immunity (Antibody-based Immunity, TH2 Response): the immune response mediated by the TH2 subset of CD4 cells. Humoral immunity is stimulated by the cytokines IL-4 and IL-10, and carried out by plasma cells (derived from B-cells), which produce antibodies. Humoral immunity is particularly effective against extracellular microorganisms that have not infected cells. Contrast with cell-mediated immunity.
