  • Historical insight: Immunology's founding fathers argued fiercely about whether Metchnikoff's phagocytes or Ehrlich's antibodies were the most important mediators of immunity. Antibodies won out, but even after lymphocytes re-established cellular immunology, the humoralist-cellularist divide persisted.
