The science of immunology began to develop in the last decades of the 19th century as one of the major yields of the new field of bacteriology.
The debate that flourished between proponents of cellular and humoral theories of immunity was one of the classic controversies that dot the history of science, generating fruitful research and ideas as well as polemical attacks and counterattacks.
As often happens, this controversy abated when researchers recognized that their work pointed to the involvement of both humoral and cellular factors in immunity, a view that eventually would be confirmed in the 1960s with the discovery of the dual system of immunity residing in the T and B lymphocytes.

 Zoroastrian and Parsis in Science Fiction
Zoroastrianism is mentioned rarely within science fiction, and when it is mentioned, it is usually only in passing.
Science fiction writers, aware of the precarious and possibly declining numbers of the Zoroastrian population, may prefer to avoid predicting the continued existence or significance of a such a group.
Disregarding Ellison's appropriation of Zarathustra's name in a philosophical scene, the only science fiction novels we are aware of with actual Zoroastrian characters are Harrison's Bill, the Galactic Hero (in which the title character is a Zoroastrian), and Stephenson's The Diamond Age (which sports a minor, unnamed Parsi banker).
