ANTIBODIES

Written by

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).
