    An infectious disease that does not arrive through transmission of an infectious agent from host to host is referred to as _____. exoenzyme A(n) ____ is an extracellular enzyme that may be involved in hydrolysis of nutrient macromolecules or damage to host tissues. Stanhope: Public Health Nursing, 8th Edition Chapter Infectious Disease Prevention and Control Test Bank MULTIPLE CHOICE 1. When caring for a client with methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), the community health nurse should know: a. Persons with MRSA usually have a chronic illness. b. MRSA is a hospital-acquired infection and not often seen in the community.

    Cancer cells are generally viewed as a problem innate to their host, but evidence is mounting that they can evolve to become infectious agents and be transmitted between individuals. Time interval beginning with the invasion by an infectious agent and continuing until the organism multiplies to sufficient numbers to produce a host reaction and clinical symptoms. Infection State produced by the invasion of a host by an infectious agent.

    Certain infectious agents, including viruses, bacteria, and parasites, can cause cancer or increase the risk that cancer will viruses can disrupt signaling that normally keeps cell growth and proliferation in check. Also, some infections weaken the immune system, making the body less able to fight off other cancer-causing infections.   Key Terms. infectious: Infectious diseases, also known as transmissible diseases or communicable diseases, comprise clinically evident illness (i.e., characteristic medical signs and/or symptoms of disease) resulting from the infection, presence, and growth of pathogenic biological agents in an individual host organism.; pathogen: Any organism or substance, especially a microorganism, .

Abstract. No abstract provided. Free full text. Summary. Viruses, as they replicate in the plant host, can disrupt cellular processes and host physiology to cause disease.

The range in disease reactions, from yellowing to dwarfing and reduction in host fecundity, culminates in sizable losses along with decreases in the aesthetic value in commercial cultivations, landscape plants, or home gardens. When we were first approached by the senior editors of this series to edit a book on interactions between the host and infectious agents, we acceptedthis offer as an exciting challenge.

The only condition, readily agreed upon, was that such a book should focus on the immunology of infections in humans. Our reasons, if not biases, were severalfold. Types of infectious agents. Infectious agents come in many shapes and sizes. Bacteria and protozoans are microscopic one-celled organisms, while viruses are even smaller.

Fungi grow like plants, and helminths resemble worms. Dr. Levy spent 4 years researching the use of high dose vitamin C and presents his findings in this book. In short, high dose (25 to 50 grams) and very high dose (e.g. grams) has been proven to cure virtually every disease (including polio), venom bites (snake, spider), systemic toxicity (lead poisoning) and so much s: This book deals with the various mechanisms by which infectious agents can trigger autoimmunity such as molecular mimicry and polyclonal activation.

An overview is given with regard to bacteria, viruses, and parasites associated with autoimmunity, and a summary is given on classical autoimmune diseases and the infecting agents that can induce them.

Infectious Diseases • Disease is a disturbance in the state of health • Microbes cause disease in the course of stealing space, nutrients, and/or living tissue from their symbiotic hosts (e.g., us) • To do this, microbes do most of the following: – Gain access to the host (contamination) – Adhere to the host.

where the causative agent produces toxins in the body (e.g., botulism). Another route is the colonization of an invading pathogen on the host surface, which al-lows the pathogen to increase in numbers and produce toxins that are damaging to the host’s cells (e.g., Vib-rio and Corynebacterium).

Pathogenesis can also occur by pathogens invading. An infection occurs when germs enter the body, increase in number, and cause a reaction of the body. Three things are necessary for an infection to occur: Source: Places where infectious agents (germs) live (e.g., sinks, surfaces, human skin) Susceptible Person with a way for germs to enter the body.

(direct contact between infectious host and susceptible host) or indirect transmission (which involves an intermediate carrier like an environmental surface or piece of medical equipment). PORTAL OF ENTRY The opening where an infectious disease enters the host’s body such as mucus membranes, open.Infectious diseases result from pathogens responsible for causing the infection.

These include viroids, nematodes, prion, arthropods namely mites and fleas and macroparasites such as helminths and infections are caused when an organism invades into the body cells and tissue with infection-causing agent involving the reaction of the host tissues to these organisms and due to the.Symptoms include prodromal fever that can rise as high as °F (°C), conjunctivitis, coryza (runny nose), cough, and small spots with white or bluish-white centers on an erythematous base on the buccal mucosa (Koplik spots).
