Answer Keys

300.d Immediate type (Type I)
301.d Type IV
302.e IgE
303.a O/antigens
304.e. Mismatched blood types in transfusion
305.d. all are possible
306.b. Delayed type hypersensitivity
307.c. Autoimmune/ joints
308.d. type IV
309.e. Allograft
Explanation:  

  • An “isograft is performed between genetically identical individuals (i.e. monozygotic twins).
  • A “heterograft” is not a word that is used in transplantation immunology.
  • A “xenograft” is a transplant that is performed across species.
  • An “autograft”  is a transplant from one location in the body to another.
  • An allograft is a transplant between two members of the same species who are not genetically identical. So option “e” is the right answer.

310.c. Serum sickness
311.a. HLA
312.e. B cell
313.a. SCID
314.d. CD4
315.c. Reverse transcriptase
316.b. Human Chorionic Gonadotropoin (HCG)
317.a. rheumatoid arthritis
318.e. xenograft
