2.	A patient has the misfortune to have both diabetes insipidus and Addison’s disease.How will those conditions affect the patient’s ability to regulate blood pressure?
3.	In the correct sequence, list the names of the blood vessels and heart’s chambers that an RBC would travel through (or flow into other vessels) on its journey from the muscles located anterior to the right tibia to the heart, then to the left shoulder muscles, and then back to the heart. Take in consideration only the vessels listed in the Study Guide.
4.	Describe the activation, proliferation and differentiation of T cells and B cells and briefly describe the functions of the differentiated cells.
