Immune System. Memory. During an immune response, B and T cells create memory cells. These are clones of the specific B and T cells that remain in the body, holding information about each threat the body has been exposed to! This gives our immune system memory.What role do memory cells play in immunity?
Memory cells fire up a fast and powerful immune response when the pathogen appears again. Immune and lymphatic system health is necessary for protecting your body from germs and diseases. Known as the body's first line of defense, your immune system and lymphatic system help protect you from bacteria, viruses and fungi.Why are memory cells important in long term immunity?
Memory cells are important in long term immunity because these cells are able to respond faster and efficiently in a second infection with the same pathogen.
