What problem arises or may potentially arise if drug molecules bind to plasma cells?

a lot of drugs do bind to the plasma receptors to inhibit them

I should have said what problem arises if the drug unintentionally binds to the plasma cells.

Since plasma cells make antibodies so the correct answer is that antibody production will be halted.

Of course in some cases that is exactly what is needed like you pointed out mazinse so thanks.
