Storyboard Text

  • Spores Spores can get into your body in 3 different ways: •Breathing them in through your lungs. •If you eat meat which has not been fully cooked or been contaminated by infected animals. •When you handle something containing spores they can get into open cuts in your skin.
  • Blood Clots and Scabs This is part of your body's primary line of defence. When you get an open cuts, your white blood cells and platelets form a blood clot so that no more spores can enter your body.
  • Mucus This is another part of your primary line of defence. Your mucus traps dust and microbes that are trying to enter your body. After this, cilia (tiny hairs on the cells that line the gaseous exchange tract) carries it away .
  • Antigens and anti-bodies This is part of your tertiary line of defence . Anti-bodies are produced by the immune system to work against antigens.
  • Specific shapes In relation to anti-bodies and antigens the anti-bodies made by your lymph cytes need to be the same shape as the antigens so they both fir together and the antigens can be engulfed by the antibodies. This is also part of your tertiary line defence.
  • Memory cells Once your body has been exposed to a certain type of antigen you automatically have some saved anti-bodies for the anthrax so it has to come back into you r body you wouldn't get ill as your antibodies would've already fought the antigens and pathogens .
