Antibodies are substances in the blood which destroy or neutralise various toxins or ‘bodies’

(e.g. bacteria), known generally as antigens (see ANTIGEN). The antibodies are formed, usually, as a result of the introduction into the body of the antigens to which they are antagonistic, as in all infectious diseases (see ALLERGY; IMMUNITY).
