  • cells
  • The aim of this study was to determine the most frequently repeated typical findings as regards the numbers and localisation of these cells in tonsils and to confront the data obtained with the concept that tonsils are a component of the local immunity system. (naver.com)
  • B cells are activated and proliferate in areas called germinal centres in the tonsil. (wikipedia.org)
  • prevent
