- The process of active or passive immunization. Active immunization with vaccines leads to long-term protection through mobilizing the organism's own immune system. Passive immunization is achieved by injection of antibody against a specific pathogen obtained either by fractionation of blood from an individual previously infected with the pathogen, or by monoclonal antibody technology.
