    Yes you do, its B1.1.2 and the spec states:

    c) The body has different ways of protecting itselfagainst pathogens.

    d) White blood cells help to defend against pathogens by:
    ■ ingesting pathogens
    ■ producing antibodies, which destroy particularbacteria or viruses
    ■ producing antitoxins, which counteract the toxinsreleased by the pathogens.

    e) The immune system of the body produces specificantibodies to kill a particular pathogen. This leads toimmunity from that pathogen. In some cases, deador inactivated pathogens stimulate antibodyproduction. If a large proportion of the populationis immune to a pathogen, the spread of thepathogen is very much reduced.

    Pretty sure it's not on the syllabus, but knowing it definitely won't hurt. If it comes up as a 6 marker then you could easily mention it.
