Metchnikoff first defined and named the method of phagocytosis, or ingestion of overseas topic by means of white blood cells. at the present time, phagocytic cells could be imaged in nice aspect utilizing complex microscopy strategies.

In 1883, even sooner than the invention serum part might move immunity, Elie Metchnikoff, one other Nobel Prize winner, proven that cells additionally give a contribution to the immune kingdom of an animal. He saw that yes white blood cells, which he termed phagocytes, ingested (phagocytosed) microorganisms and different overseas fabric (Figure 1-3, left). Noting that those phagocytic cells have been extra lively in animals that have been immunized, Metchnikoff hypothesized that cells, instead of serum elements, have been the main effectors of immunity.
