Because the response is delayed by 24 hours, it is considered DH and, in this case, a specific form of DH called contact hypersensitivity. Primary and secondary response to tuberculosis The primary and secondary immune response arcs can occur at different sites, as with the immunologic mechanisms of the first and second encounter with Mycobacterium tuberculosis antigens. The afferent phase of the primary response occurs after the inhalation of the live organisms, which proliferate slowly within the lung.

The T lymphocytes interact with the macrophageingested bacteria, and cytokines are released that activate neighboring macrophages to fuse into giant cells, forming caseating granulomas. Meanwhile, some of the effector T lymphocytes home to other lymph nodes throughout the body, where they become inactive memory T lymphocytes, trafficking and recirculating throughout the secondary lymphoid tissue. A secondary response using the immune response arc of the skin is the basis of the tuberculin skin test to diagnose tuberculosis.

Processing Phase The conversion of the antigenic stimulus into an immunologic response through priming of naive B and T lymphocytes within the lymph nodes and spleen constitutes the processing phase of the immune response arc. This is also called activation, or sensitization, of 38 • lntraocular Inflammation and Uveitis 1 HLA 2 Infected APC 4 3 Costimulation = ,- - Antigen receptor CD8 T lymphocyte Figure 2-2 Class I-dependent antigen-presenting cells (APCs) . 1, APC is infected by a virus, which causes the cell to synthesize virus-associated peptides that are present in the cytosol.
