An antibody (Ab), also known as an immunoglobulin (Ig), is a large, Y-shaped protein produced mainly by plasma cells that is used by the immune system to neutralize pathogens such as pathogenic bacteria and viruses.
B cells, also known as B lymphocytes, are a type of white blood cell of the lymphocyte subtype.

Hypergammaglobulinemia is a medical condition with elevated levels of gamma globulin.
The immune system is a host defense system comprising many biological structures and processes within an organism that protects against disease.
Immunoglobulin M (IgM) is one of several forms of antibody that are produced by vertebrates.
Lymphoproliferative disorders (LPDs) refer to several conditions in which lymphocytes are produced in excessive quantities.
The myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs), previously myeloproliferative diseases (MPDs), are a group of diseases of the bone marrow in which excess cells are produced.
Natural killer cells or NK cells are a type of cytotoxic lymphocyte critical to the innate immune system.
