reduced B cell expression
Jun 14, 2003
Does a low number of B lymphocytes indicate an inability to mount an antibody response to infection? Does incrased stimulation due to acute infection cause reduced expression of B cells?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Perhaps, but it depends on how low the B cell number is. Acute infection would be expected to increase B cell number and antibody production.
