Does anyone know if the portion of the immune system which the CD-57 test measures, is it known by the medical community what specifically that defends against?  Just lyme?  Something else?   Does a suppressed CD-57 compromise your immunity to anything known?
 
Was actually curious because...I'm considering going back to school and apparently, colleges are tightening up on verifying 2 doses of MMR vaccine, and I requested a copy of my HS transcript and it only proves one dose.  I'm pretty sure my parents had my 2nd shot done but if I can't prove it they may make me do it again...thus, I was curious about the specific immune system cell type represented by CD-57.

rcenters,

I found this and I hope it helps explain things. I will keep looking for a better explanation but it looks like B cells make antibodies against a vaccination. Not T-Cells. T-Cells are used in the immune system.


main lymphocyte sub-types are
B-cells, T-cells and natural killer
(NK) cells. B-cells make antibodies
that are stimulated by infection
or vaccination. T-cells and
NK cells, on the other hand, are
the cellular aggressors in the
immune system and are our main
focus in the discussion that follo
ws.
