antigenic competition
the immune response to an antigen may be reduced if an unrelated antigen is administered simultaneously or shortly before. These may be between different molecules (intermolecular) or different determinants on the same molecule (intramolecular).
antigenic drift
point mutations in genes resulting in antigenic change. See also orthomyxoviridae.
antigenic mimicry
similarities between sequences found in microbial proteins and host proteins which may result in cross-reacting immune responses and autoimmune disease.
antigenic shift
genetic reassortment between two subtypes of a viral species resulting in a new subtype with completely different antigenicity. See also orthomyxoviridae.
