Area of science: Immunology
During gestation when the antibodies from the mother passes across the
placenta to the fetus, does this trigger an immune response or are the
antibodies just broken down by deamination in the liver ?
Currently studing Human Biology and this area appears to documented
differently in different books, so alittle confused !
