    Phagocytes are white blood cells (phagocytes) that 'eat' infectious germs. The phagocytes stimulate lymphocytes to respond to pathogens.

    Phagocytes engulf and digest cell debris whereas Lymphocytes are responsible for immune responses. There are two main types of lymphocytes: B cells and T cells. Moreover having absorbed a pathogen, the phagocytes may also send out chemical messages that help nearby lymphocytes to identify the type of antibody (as aforementiond by harmonikirk).
