Hey cell mediated immunity does not involve antibodies. It however activates antigen specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes. T lymphocytes involve antibodies so why does it say that cell mediated immunity doesn't involve antibodies when actually it does?

Cell mediated immunity doesn't involve antibodies, cell mediated immunity is carried out by T lymphocytes, what happens here is the T cells come into contact with the antigen and get activated, the 2 main types of T cells are cytotoxic (which directly kills the pathogen) or helper (which can go and activate B cells to then release antibodies). I'm not sure where you read that T cells have antibodies, but it's wrong :P
