Immunity and Infection


The chain of infection

The Chain of Infection

Links in the Chain

Transmitted through a chain (six links)

Pathogen - disease causing microorganism

Reservoir - natural environment of the pathogen: Person, animal, or environmental component

Portal of Exit

Means of transmission

Direct transmission

Indirect transmission

Vectors – carrier of the pathogen from one host to another

Portal of entry

Penetration of the skin

Inhalation through mouth or nose

Ingestion

New host

Breaking the Chain

Body s defense system

Body’s Defense System

The inflammatory response

The Inflammatory Response

Histamine.

Dilation of blood vessels, heat, redness, and swelling.

The immune response

Phase 1 – Dendritic cells are drawn to the site

Phase 2 – Helper T cells multiply

Production of Killer T and B cells

Cytokines – chemical messengers

Phase 3 – Killer T cells strike

Cell-mediated immune

Antibody-mediated immune response

Phase 4 – Last Phase –

Suppressor T-cells

Slow down activity

5 stages of an infection

5 Stages of an Infection

Incubation stage (bacteria or viruses multiply)

Prodromal stage (contagious period)

Clinical stage (biological warfare)

Decline stage

Recovery stage

7


Immunization

Immunization

  • Vaccinations are when the immune system is given an antigen which is not considered dangerous

  • The body produces antibodies, which prevent serious infection against that particular disease

  • Vaccines are made by either weakened pathogens or killed pathogens, which still elicit the production of antibodies (active immunity), or antibodies can be injected (passive immunity) to create temporary immunity

Fungal infections

Fungal Infections

  • A fungus is a primitive plant

  • 50 of thousands of fungi cause disease among humans

  • Candida albicans is a common fungus found naturally in the vagina of most women, which causes infections

  • Other common forms are athlete’s foot, jock itch, and ringworm

  • Fungal infections can be deadly in people with impaired immune systems


Protozoan infections

Protozoan Infections

  • Single-celled organisms, which alternate between activity and inactivity

  • Common infections include:

    • Trichomoniasis (primarily an infection of women's vaginal and urinary tracts)

    • Trypanosomiasis (also known as African sleeping sickness; spread by the bite of the tsetse fly; causes an acute illness leading to death within weeks or months)

    • Amoebic dysentery (An acute disease caused by ingesting substances contaminated with the amoeba Entamoeba histolytica and characterized by severe diarrhea, nausea, and inflammation of the intestines)


Parasitic worms

Parasitic Worms

  • Considered the largest organism that can enter the body to cause infection

  • Worms, including the tapeworm and hookworm, can grow to a length of many feet, especially in the intestinal tract

  • Worm infections can originate from contaminated food or drink


Prions

Prions

  • Known as ‘proteinaiceous infectious particles’

  • Prions lack DNA or RNA and consist of only protein

  • They spread by triggering normal proteins to change their structure to the abnormal, damaging form

  • Symptoms include behavioral changes (e.g., agitation), gradual loss of coordination and locomotive function, and, in advanced stages, weight loss, fine muscular contractions, and abnormal gait. Brain tissue becomes pitted with holes and spongy.

  • Examples are:

    • Creutzfeldt-Jakob a.k.a. ‘Mad Cow’

    • Scrapie in sheep


Selected infections of concern

SARS

E. coli

Hantavirus (rodent)

West Nile Virus

Rotavirus (gastroenteritis)

Monkey Pox

Ebola

Avian flu

H1N1 Flu (“Swine Flu”)

Selected Infections of Concern


2009 h1n1 flu swine flu

2009 H1N1 Flu (Swine Flu)

  • 2009 H1N1 (sometimes called “swine flu”) is a new influenza virus causing illness in people. This new virus was first detected in people in the United States in April 2009. This virus is spreading from person-to-person worldwide, probably in much the same way that regular seasonal influenza viruses spread. On June 11, 2009, the World Health Organization (WHO) signaled that a pandemic of 2009 H1N1 flu was underway.

Sexually transmitted diseases stds

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs)

  • Also known as Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)

  • Spread of an infection from person to person mainly through sexual activity.

  • STDs that pose a major health threat:

    • Syphilis

    • Chlamydia

    • Gonorrhea

    • Herpes

28


Populations of special concern for hiv infection

Populations of Special Concern for HIV infection

  • Most common exposure has been sexual activity between men; injection drug use, and heterosexual contact.

  • African American men and women are vastly overrepresented among people newly diagnosed with AIDS.

    • See “HIV/AIDS Among African Americans and Latinos”

Diagnosing hiv infection

Diagnosing HIV Infection

  • Most common is tests for the presence of antibodies to the virus.

    • HIV antibody test

    • ELISA (first test)

    • Western blot (second test), Immunoflourescence assay

  • IF HIV-positive then check the status of the CD4-T cells.
