GENERAL PRINCIPLESOF INFECTIOUS DISEASESDepartment of Infectious Diseases, the Third Affiliated HospitalLi Gang (李刚)2009.2

Slide2 l.jpg

Introduction·Definition of infectious diseases and communicable diseases. · Distinction between infectious diseases and communicable diseases.

Slide3 l.jpg


1. Infectious disease: any infection caused by microbes or parasites.

2. Communicable disease: infection transmitted from persons or animals to other persons.

Slide4 l.jpg

The goal of studying infectious disease:1. To study etiology, epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, treatment and prevention of infectious diseases. 2. To control and eliminate these diseases. (occurrence, spreading, prevention)

The concept of infection the course of struggle between pathogens and human or animal bodies host l.jpg
The concept of infection The course of struggle between pathogens and human or animal bodies (host).

Pathogens microbes parasites l.jpg

Pathogens:(microbes, parasites)

Prion; virus; chlamydia; rickettsia; bacteria; fungus; spirochete.

Protozoa; helminth.

Commensal infection pathogens live in the host but don t induce pathologic changes l.jpg
⑴ Commensal infection: Pathogens live in the host but don’t induce pathologic changes.

Slide11 l.jpg

⑵ Opportunistic infection:Pathogens within the host can induce pathologic changes if host immunity is suppressed by some factors.

Slide12 l.jpg

⑶ Pathogenic infection: According to the severity of the pathologic changes, several degrees in clinical manifestation from mild, moderate to severe will occur.

Infection status l.jpg

Infection status:

Primary infection



super infection

secondary infection

Slide16 l.jpg

1. Elimination: following results. pathogens were excluded out by host nonspecific or specific immunity. Such as Candida albicans Escherichia coli

Slide17 l.jpg

2. Covert (subclinical) infection: following results.■ Most frequently occurs in healthy individuals. ■ The outcomes will be: A. Immunity acquired. B. Carrier state: healthy carriers.

3 overt clinical infection the outcomes will be a recovery b chronic carrier l.jpg
3. Overt (clinical) infection: following results. The outcomes will be: A. Recovery. B. Chronic carrier.

Slide19 l.jpg

4. Carrier state: following results. Definition of different types of carriers: . incubation carrier . acute carrier . convalescent carrier . chronic carrier

Slide20 l.jpg

5. Latent infection: following results.After infection, pathogens remain latent inside the body. Develop clinical manifestations when the host immunity has been impaired. Pathogens usually will not be excreted by the host during period of latency.

Slide21 l.jpg

The Role of Pathogens in the Infection Process: following results.⑴ Invasiveness: adhesion, penetration ability. ⑵ Virulence: toxins, enzymes, and histolytic ability.⑶ Infection dose: minimal dose that can cause an infection.⑷Variability: change in structure of the pathogen to evade from host immunity.

Slide22 l.jpg

The Role of Immune Response in Infection Process: following results.Differentiation between protective immunity and allergy. . Protective immunity: beneficial . Allergy(anaphylactic reaction): harmful

Slide23 l.jpg

following results.Nonspecific immunity:A. Natural barriers:external (skin, mucous membrane, cilia), internal (blood-brain barrier).B. Phagocytosis:macrophages, monocytes, and granulocytes.C. Humoral factors: complements, interferons, lysozyme, cytokines.

Slide24 l.jpg

following results.Specific immunity: Immune respond to specific recognizable antigens. A. Cell-mediated immunity: Important in intracellular infections by viruses, fungi, protozoa and certain bacteria.B. Humoral immunity: Different kinds of antibodies (immune globulins) and their functions.

Slide25 l.jpg
Pathogenic Mechanisms of Infectious Diseases following results.The occurrence and natural course of infections can be divided into three stages:

Slide26 l.jpg

1. following results.Portal of entry:Each pathogen has its specific portal of entry.Such as: Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Meningococcus via breath tract. Shigella via digestive tract.

Slide27 l.jpg

2. following results.Localization and Dissemination in the host:Specific for each pathogen.Such as: . Mumps virus in parotid gland. . Hepatitis C virus in the liver. . Shigella in the intestine.

Slide28 l.jpg

3. Channels of excretion: following results. Important factor for host infectivity. As the source of infection. Such as: . Hepatitis A in the stool. . Hepatitis B in the blood. . Measles virus in expiratory air.
