Humoral vs. Cell Mediated

I am trying to do an APA style format for my current Microbiology Discussion. Any help would be appreciated. Here are the questions I need to answer.

Describe cellular and humoral immune responses.How are they different from each other?

Give examples of diseases that compromise each of these responses. The examples must include how each disease compromises the response.

Humoral immune response ( antibody mediated response) involves B cells that recognize antigens or pathogens circulating in the lymph or blood. Antigens bind to B cells and interleukin or helper T cells costimulate B cells. Both antigen and costimulator are required to activate B cell and initiate B cell proliferation. When B cell proliferate, they produce plasma cells that have antibodies with identical antigen specific as antigen receptors of activated B cells. Antibodies are released and circulate through the body binding to antigens. B cells produce memory cells and memory cells ...
