The answer to this question is C. This is known to have a role in the regulation of the body’s immune responses to different infections. There are various signs that there may be an increase of this in the body, which is a high fever. Having fever signifies that the body is trying to fight off the infection.

The growth of this can also lead to being more aware and sensitive to pain, which is also called hyperplasia. Aside from the fever and the hyperplasia, this can also cause hypotension and validation. Take note that too much of this can break down the blood-brain barrier. There are also some who may become more prone to acquiring certain cancers.
