When people receive organ transplants, they often need to take medications that decrease immune response

1.transplanted organs contain antigens that can trigger white blood cell activity 2. hormones present in replacement organs prevent the synthesis of antibiotics

3. transplanted organs produce their own antibiotics

4. antigens present in these organs attack antibodies already present in the blood

Answer and Explanation:

Whenever a person receives an organ transplant, he/she receives immunosuppressants, or drugs that decrease the immune response/ weaken immune system. This is due to the fact that our body attacks any foreign particles that come inside since it sees them as harmful pathogens. The antibodies in our body recognize and attach to antigens in order to get rid of them. Therefore, the correct answer choice is 1. transplanted organs contain antigens that can trigger white blood cell activity.
