I used to think that they are not entirely the same thing as I was told when
I was a university student that all antibodies are immunoglobulins but not 
vice versa. Now I work as a University lecturer, I am not sure myself if 
what i used to beleive is correct. I just want to tell the right thing to students
That's why I ask this seemingly simple question. Please do help me.
