Evaluate the clonal section hypothesis In terms of autoimmunity and immunological memory and present your findings in a short report
Clonal selection hypothesis states that an individual lymphocyte, specifically s B cell, express receptors specific to the distinct antigen, determined before the antibody ever encounters the antigen (Clonal Selection of Antibody-Producing Cells, 2021). In terms of autoimmunity, it enables autoimmunity. In terms of immunological memory, basis of immunity (natural or artificial through vaccination), clonal selection theory helps such that there is a rapid/immediate response when there is a second exposure to an antigen thus combating infection.
