Abstract

Organized lymphoid tissue is found in the thymus, spleen, lymph nodes; lining the respiratory and alimentary tracts; and also occurring at sites of chronic inflammation. Apart from the thymus which is involved in the regulation of T-cell function, the other tissues are organized into T-cell and B-cell areas. Lymphocytes in T-cell areas respond by proliferation in cell-mediated immunity and by the production of suppressor cells and helper cells for antibody formation. B-cell areas are involved in the humoral antibody response. B-cells are segregated into lymph follicles where they form germinal
