diseases that are likely to be transmitted by AIDs patient
This assignment contains four short answer questions. In some cases, there is a supplied list of keywords that should be used in developing your answer. You should use the knowledge gained in the readings and other assignments in this
module. These are thought questions meant to help you process information that you have been exposed to in this module and if applicable, in previous modules. You may use outside sources, but you must use citations to show where you
obtained the information. This is an untimed assignment. You only have one opportunity to complete this assignment. HIV predominantly infects T-helper cells, cells that are responsible for coordinating B- and T-cell activity. Based on this
information, explain why HIV-infected individuals are at a very high risk for developing microbial infections. List the causative agent (virus) and discuss its properties. Name and briefly discuss 3 diseases that AIDS patients are more likely to
contract. (Terminology to use: opportunistic pathogens, T and B cell purposes, CD4 cells, retrovirus, reverse transcription) Now that we have studied the various types of vaccines, consider the current resurgence of diseases like the measles.
How can we convince the general public and possibly even ourselves, that immunization is a necessary preventative measure for diseases that have serious complications? Is there a different schedule that we should consider? Are some
forms of vaccines safer than others? Should we spread out the inoculation schedule to prevent confusion of a young person? (Include terms such as live attenuated, killed or inactive, subunit, toxoid, conjugate, complications of measles, risks
to others if uninoculated, risks to individuals that do get inoculated). You are encouraged to use your text and outside sources to develop your informed answer. Use facts and concepts. Here is an article to get you started: Construct a paragraph or two describing the interrelationship among a bacterial pathogen, the affected host, and potential antimicrobial drugs in the development of an appropriate antimicrobial treatment. Pick a pathogen, suggest tests that should be
performed on that pathogen to determine the specific drugs and give reasons why they would be appropriate. (Terminology to incorporate: narrow-spectrum, broad-spectrum, MIC, Kirby-Bauer, therapeutic index, selective toxicity, drug mechanism) Conduct additional research on the use of triclosan and other chemical agents in antimicrobial products today. Develop an opinion on whether this process should continue, providing evidence to support your stance.
