There has recently been an outbreak of a new disease in South America known as Ashella schmiddy. Recent studies that have been released have shown that A. schmiddy is a highly infectious flesh eating bacterium. A. schmiddy is a Gram Negative(-) bacillus, and it’s preferred portal of entry is the skin. It has been proven that once the bacteria is introduced to even the smallest cut or abrasion on the skin, infection quickly follows. One thing that makes this new disease so worry-some is the number of invading microbes that it takes to infect 50% of the population, which is only 15-45 cells, which is an extremely low dosage. Once A. schmiddy is introduced to the cut, fimbriae on the surface of the cell membrane attaches to human tissue cells …show more content…
Inflammation is the main type of innate immunity our body uses against A. schmiddy. Inflammation begins by activating acute-phase proteins, and soon after vasodilation occurs, followed by redness, swelling, pain, and heat. Once vasodilation occurs, histamine and kinins are released and blood vessels permeability is increased, causing white blood cells to report to the infected area. One problem associated with inflammation is that the capsule of A. schmiddy is an important virulence factor, which helps the bacteria to resists phagocytosis. Because the phagocytes cannot destroy the bacteria cells, infection further continues and necrotic tissue forms. Once innate immunity has seemed to fail, adaptive immunity sets in. Adaptive immunity is the body’s defense against a specific pathogen. One protein that A. schmiddy has is known as the Opa protein which, in short, inhibits the T Helper cells. Opa proteins inhibits T Helper cells (CD4+ cells) so antigens presented on MCHII is not recognized so B cells are not activated and cytokines are not released. Therefore, TH1, TH2, and TH17 are not activated, resulting in macrophages, mast cells, eosinophils, basophils, and neutrophils not being recruited. Since Helper T cells are one of the most important cells in our body’s immune response, without them our body cannot defend itself against many pathogens (Alberts

On February 15, 1912, during the same week in which Edith Elmira Sigler was born in Shelby County, Center Texas, a sister town published the Lubbock avalanche. The U.S postal workers are compared to other mail service workers on how much they make. Lubbock acalanche reminded their followers of the upcoming State Primary that was held on July 27th 1912. Edith Sigler was probably use to seeing the Republicans and the Deomocrats who worked together to fight socaialism. The town of Lubbock was dignosed with “improvemetngitis”.
Isabelle Wolfe Baruch Isabelle Wolfe, born 4 Mar 1850 in Winnsboro, Fairfield, South Carolina, the daughter of Sailing Wolfe, a young merchant and planter of Winnsboro, and Sara Cohen, daughter of Rabbi Hartwig Cohen of Charleston. Isabelle, known as “Belle” married Simon Baruch who had immigrated from Schwersenz, near Poland, in East Prussia, to Camden, South Carolina in 1855 to avoid Prussian conscription. At the time he immigrated to America, Simon was fifteen years old and the only person he knew in America when he arrived was a man by the name of Mannes Baum. Mr. Baum was the owner of a general store in Camden, SC and was married to an aunt of Baruch’s mother.

Multi Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a strand of Staphylococcus aureus that has become resistant to many commonly used antibiotics. Staphylococcus aureus is an infectious disease that is mostly harmless. However, upon entering the body, it can cause various types of infections in almost any part or organ system within the body. These infections include skin infections, invasive infections, and in rare cases it may cause illness.
It is classified as a beta-hemolytic streptococcus because when cultured on a blood agar plate all the red blood cells are ruptured by the bacteria. It is also known as beta-hemolytic group A streptococcus. Streptococcus pyogenes begins infection on the surface of the skin or in the throat but is usually found in the throat. It is the same bacteria that the causes Strep throat. This bacteria can be life threaten when it infects the fascia, or connective tissue that surrounds muscles, blood vessels and nerve.
Gram-negative bacteria contain a layer of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) When the bacteria enters the body, the LPS triggers the body’s immune response. The body recognises a cytokine reaction from the bacteria which is toxic to the body and responds by inflaming the tissues and blood vessels. The certain cells used against the bacteria Bordetella Pertussis include innate and specific defenses, but the defensive antigens have not been exclusively identified. Explain how the disease can be treated.
Nevertheless, this chapter did an exceptional job of explaining the function of the immune system as well as the effect of HIV on the immune system. The immune system has two main functions; to limit the amount of virus made then to clear the virus from the host. This process starts with the crucial ability to discriminate between foreign antigens and the body’s own proteins which is allows the immune system to only attack the virus that has infected the body. Initially upon infection, the immune system responds quickly in ways nonspecific to the particular virus at hand, employing natural killer lymphoid cells and phagocytic macrophages to surround then engulf the virus as well as proteins called complement factors that
As the name order, it is settled into Staphylococcus genus and S. Epidermidis species. S. Epidermidis makes its home on human skin, mucosal layer and nasal mucosa. Diseases can be taken form in human body and warm-blooded animals such as septicemia and endocarditis. In fact, S. Epidermidis is not too harmful on healthy tissue. The infection often occurs on newborn baby, drug users, and older people and those who need to use assistant devices on every part
