Memory B cells are a B cell sub-type that are formed within germinal centers following primary infection and are important in generating an accelerated and more robust antibody-mediated immune response in the case of re-infection.

Now there is an accumulation of cells of a single clone population which expresses many of the one same type of antibody and that these memory B cells survive for long periods of time in a body.
