Passive Immunity

Acquisition or accumulation of the products of B cells, that is, of antibodies.

Passive Immunity by definition means a lack of acquisition of lymphocytes but instead only the product of B lymphocytes, i.e., antibodies.

Passive immunity can be differentiated in what is described as naturally acquired versus artificially acquired.

See by contrast also active immunity.
