Low white blood cell counts can be caused by a variety of factors,so get it checked out by your doctor. If, for example, you arereceiving chemotherapy, your doctor can use drugs such as Neulastato increase WBC counts. Eat a lot of fruits and vegetables(however, if your white blood cell counts are lo…wer than 1 k/ul,check with your doctor who may recommend avoiding raw foods). Getplenty of rest. Some extra vitamin C, zinc, and beta-carotene maybe helpful, but don't overdo it with the supplements, as this maybe dangerous. (i.e. too much Airborne could give you dangerouslevels of vitamin A). If your white blood cell counts are low,avoid people who are sick, wash your hands often, use good hygiene,and call your doctor if you experience any signs of infection. BEHAPPY!! Your mood helps on how your body fights off infections, thehappier you are the more likely you are to fight off infections,which increases your white blood count. (MORE)
Answer . White blood cells are part of the immune system .. Some white blood cells capture invading bacteria and then destroy them or transport them to other organs of the body where they will be eliminated.
Blood cells, plasma and platelets are the elements of blood. Blood, heart, blood vessels, lymph ducts and lymph nodes constitute the circulatory system
The shape of a white blood cell can change as needed. This allowsthe white blood cell to reach infected areas so that it can healthe body.
How do white blood cells or the immune system cause discomfort to the body while trying to help it stay or become healthy?
Because essentially when bacteria or viruses come into your body, they go and take over one of your cells, so they can reproduce, so your white blood cells and other parts of your immune system are actually attacking your own cells to destroy your illness making you fell worse in the process.
White blood cells play very little role in circulation. The role of white blood cells is to provide an immune response from the body. White blood cells leave the blood when the blood vessels get too narrow and roam through body tissue before entering the lymph and finally being returned to the bloo…d. Red blood cells are specialised cells designed to carry oxygen and to travel through the smallest of blood vessels. Mammalian red blood cells have no nucleus and instead have a biconcave shape (like a flattened marshmallow with the middle squeezed in or a doughnut where the hole doesn't go all the way through). This shape serves 2 functions: it helps the red blood cells (erythrocytes) to circulate through the smallest of capillaries; and it vastly increases the surface area of the cell which in turn allows them to carry more oxygen. The function of erythrocytes' is to carry oxygen to all parts of the blood and the specialised protein haemoglobin helps with this function. It is the iron present in this molecule that gives erythrocytes their red colour and in turn it is they who give blood its red colour (blood plasma itself is a yellowish colour). The shape of erythrocytes is vital to good circulation and just a minor mutation to the genetic code of a person can lead to a catastrophic change in the shape of erythrocytes under times of stress. This change causes them to take on a sickle shape. Sickle Cell anemia is a debilitating disease that reduces the energy level of sufferers through anemia and causes blood clots that can lead to necrotic tissue or strokes. Anemia is caused by having a lack of erythrocytes in the blood and leads to weakness, tiredness and more serious symptoms. Less erythrocytes means less oxygen is being carried in the blood and thus the rate and volume of respiration possible is severely reduced. The sickling of the cells means that they no longer can fit through the small capillaries and thus reduces blood flow and causes clots. (MORE)
White blood cells are the body's infection-fighting cells. Therefore, they fight against any infection that may affect the heart such as bacterial endocarditis. They attach to the disease and kill them off by either "eating them" (phagocytosis) or by other means.
Located (obviously) in the blood, a white blood cell's job is to find and eliminate potential threats to the human body. The system of eliminating threats such as these from the body is undertaken by the IMMUNE system.
They don't defend pathogens. They defend *against* pathogens. They poison them, they burn them with ozone / hydrogen peroxide / sodium hypochlorite / chorine dioxide, and then they eat them whole if necessary.
yep they do. when you have a cut your white blood cells go to it and clot the blood to stop the bleeding. that's why when people have HIV which kills the cells and also lukemia if they get a cut it takes longer to stop bleeding.
Yes, your immune system is a " team " of white blood cells that swallow other opposing cells or bacteria, and then destroy them. This process may destroy the blood cell.
The antibodies help the white blood cells to detect and identify foreign particles, by attaching to the anti genes.
I think red blood cells, but I'm not sure. I just guessed. So you might want to look somewhere else.
Cells in the blood do not provide nutrients to the other cells of the body. The nutrients are in the blood plasma (liquid). These nutrient diffuse through the vessel wall and travel to the bodies cells in the interstitial fluid (the fluid around individual cells). The epidermis does not have blood v…essel running through it, so the nutrient must pass from the dermis layer of cells. (MORE)
The central nervous system or CNS is made up of the brain and spinal chord.
What type of cells protect the neurons in the central nervous system from some substances in the blood?
Could one conclude that Ependymal cells & Oligodenrocytes bloodcells in the CNS protects neurons from some blood substances inblood.
Red bone marrow (which is actually part of the lymphatic system, not the skeletal system).
\nBlood. However, the delivery is slightly different than the rest of the body. In the CNS the blood filtered by the blood-brain barrier that only allows certain essential nutrients and oxygen to pass through.
White blood cells also produce antibodies , which are chemicals that are crucial to the immune system's response to infections.
The circulatory system mainly which with the help of blood transfers the nutrients and also oxygen
The part of the peripheral nervous system that carries the sensory information to the CNS is designated?
The afferent division of the PNS carries impulses inward to a central organ or section, as nerves that conduct impulses from the periphery of the body to the brain or spinal cord
What steps involving the immune system and white blood cells help people with the swine flu recover?
There are 2 parts to the immune system, general (also called innate) and specific (also called adaptive). The general immune system is made out of immune cells that attack anything deemed bad by the general immune system, and don't specify later. The specific immune system is made of cells that spec…ialize in targeting specific germs and other bad things [viruses, bacteria, fungi, small animals (yes, small animals can infect you, such as worms), damaged/ dying/ malfunctioning cells etc.]. When a germ first comes in (swine flu in this case), the general immune system responds. The skin is actually the first line of defense, but apparently it got past that. Mast cells are land mines. When tripped they "blow" releasing histamines, which tell the surrounding tissues to inflame, and draw other parts of the immune system to the scene. The inflammation tries to tighten the area up, to make it harder for what was detected to get in. Neutrophils are one of the first types of cells responding to the inflammation, and come to try and kill off bacterial infections with anti-microbial secretions. If things get intense, dead neutrophils pile up and form pus. Monocytes, half of which are stored in the spleen, come to the area changing into macrophages and dendrites. There is a muddled line between these 2 forms of the cell. Macrophages gobble up germs and other foreign junk they find, and shred the junk into pieces inside it. The pieces are then carried to the surface of the cell, where they are put on antigen-presenting proteins (platters of display, if you will). Think of it as a hunter holding the head of his prize buck. Displaying of antigens (the shreds of the invader) is what dendrites do (muddled line). Transitioning to the specific immune system, the cell then carries its "catch" to a helper T-Cell that changes its shape to match the shape of the antigen, but in the negative form of the shape (negative, as in cast and mold negative, as in one fits in the other like a peg in a hole). When its shape fits into the antigen shape, that helper T-Cell releases chemokines that draw killer T-cells and plasma cells to the site of infection. Once activated, a plasma cell is called a B-Cell. B-cells shoot antibodies, which are like arrows coming from an archer. The antibodies bind to the germs, disable them, and mark them for destruction by the immune system. Killer T-Cells are VERY special. So far in these steps, the immune system has been only able to recognize things by what's on their surface . Killer T-Cells actually connect to a cell, look beneath the surface to find out if it is infected with the virus, and kill the cell if it is, before the thousands of replicated viruses manufactured in that cell can get loose. Everything in the cell gets broken down, so the viruses made in there thus far don't make it out "alive" to infect new cells. When the infection has been killed off, T-regulatory cells put out the "stop-fighting signal", and immune memory gets stored. "Immune memory", refers to the process of the killer and helper T-cells and B-cells, that where involved in the fight, keeping the pattern of the germ for future reference. Then they go hibernate in a lymph node somewhere. If the same or very similar germ reappears some day, these memory immune cells are able to immediately react and kill the infection almost instantly (because they already know the shape of the antibody that is needed for that specific invader). Don't forget to recycle! After the infection is over, all the dead cells get broken down to make new cells. Material from germs that has been properly broken down is safe to make cells out of as well, which the body does. (MORE)
Hormones that are under neural control, by the employment of neurosecretary cells, are the ones responsible for mostly positive feedback mechanisms. Here is a partial list of the most common ones: Antidiuretic hormone (ADH), oxytocin, epinephrine, and norepinephrine (In the UK they are adrenaline an…d noradrenaline). (MORE)
In the circulatory system, veins are blood vessels that carry blood towards the heart. Most veins carry deoxygenated blood from the tissues back to the heart; exceptions are the pulmonary and umbilical veins, both of which carry oxygenated blood to the heart.
Red blood cell production is regulated by a negative feedback system: As the oxygen carrying capacity of red blood cells decreases due to High altitudes for example, the bodies requirements for oxygen increase; thus new Red blood cells need to be produced the drop in oxygen-carrying capacity is re…ferred to as Hypoxia; which is in turn detected by cells within the KIDNEY; when low oxygen levels are detected these cells within the kidney release a hormone called erythropoietin Erythropoietin stimulates the RED BONE MARROW to produce more erythrocytes (Red blood cells); a process caller erythropoiesis. This then causes an INCREASE in red blood cell count and thus an INCREASE in oxygen carry capacity of the body This increase is again detected by cells in the KIDNEY and the release of erythropoietin is decreased; restoring the oxygen carrying capacity back to normal (MORE)
white blood cells have different shapes, each shape has a function, for instance granulocytes (referred to as granulocytes because of the granulated cytoplasm) ingest pathogens, agranulocytes (non- granulated cytoplasm ) release antibodies to destroy the harmful pathogens
Nutrients enter the blood via the small intestine. Thenutrients, undigested food passes into the large intestine. There,water and minerals diffuse into the minerals diffuse into the bloodand wastes are removed from the body.
Cardiac muscle tissue is supplied with nutrients and oxygen by which part of the human transport system?
Cardiac muscle tissue is supplied with nutrients and oxygen by the coronary arteries in a process called coronary circulation.
The sympathetic division causes increases in blood levels to prepare the body to cope with external pressure/ situations (danger, excitement). It is also known as the fight or flight subdivision.
Sort of. Â When you have an infection, your white blood cells can release things called cytokines, which are small molecules that regulate immune function. Â Some cytokines work extremely locally (like TNF-alpha, which causes local inflammation at the site of release), other cytokines act more g…lobally (like IL-3, which stimulates precursor cells to turn into white blood cells in your bone marrow). Â I guess you could technically call something like IL-3 a hormone, but most people prefer to call it a cytokine (since it is immune related). Â When you talk about hormones, most people assume you're talking about the traditional endocrine hormones, like insulin, cortisol, ADH, etc.Â . \n (MORE)
if i remember correctly, we have receptors throughout our body which will transfer all sensations to our brain, which will then immediately send a signal back to react.

Bone marrow, which is located on the inside of bones. Specifically it would be a type of marrow called "red marrow" that produces blood cells
Yes. Some produce anti-bodies and anti-toxins to destroy foreign organsims, while other types engulf (eat) the organisms. The white blood cell's anti-body types tell your blood type.
Lymphatic System any other questions go to my message board and ask http://wiki.answers.com/Q/UserDiscuss:Noel1090wiltanger I will answer questions in less then 24 hours
We all know that we have blood in our bodies because we can see it when we cut ourselves. But many people don't know that we also have a second circulatory system called the lymphatic system. This system contains a clear fluid, called lymph, which flows around our bodies in tiny lymph vessels. It d…estroys and removes invaders such as viruses and bacteria from our bodies. It is an important part of our natural defence system - the immune system - and helps us to fight infection. The lymphatic system also helps to transport substances such as cells, proteins, nutrients and waste products around the body. In particular, it transports white blood cells, including the special kind of white blood cell known as the lymphocyte. (MORE)
Cardiovascular system is the circulatory system. Cardiovascular is the heart and blood arteries, capillaries and veins.
the PNS as the cental nervous system only consists of the brain and spinal cord. where as the rest of the body is covered by all the nerves which are included in the PNS
Naturally, the nervous system needs nutrients (particularly oxygen) to keep it's cells alive and functional, just like any other system.
Whit blood cell are the part of blood, which is responsible for the immunity to run with diseases . .
The vascular system signals for blood vessels to constrict or dilate. The nervous system, such as the spine, and the brain, work together to help blood vessels respond accordingly.
What is it called when the nervous systems sends white blood cells the wrong information and tell them to kill fat that is not foreign?
When the immune system attacks part of the body, rather than foreign organisms or substances, that is called an auto-immune disease. The disease of multiple sclerosis (M/S) is caused by this ; the immune system attacks the myelin sheath of nerve cells. Myelin is a type of fat, needed to insulate ner…ve axons so that nerve messages can be transmitted successfully. (MORE)
Which mineral nutrient helps build and renew the part of red blood cells that carry oxygen to the cells?
The minerals iron and copper helps to build hemoglobin that helps to carry oxygen to cells.
The blood plasma contains the red blood cells which carries thefood nutrients and oxygen to all the cells.
That part is called as autonomic nervous system. You have two components of the autonomic nervous system, sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system.
