They lack digestive tract, mouth and senory organs, they have unique body extension called microtiches which help in absorption of host nutrients. They have scolex which is provided with suckers and often with hooks for attachment. More than 10,000 species of tapeworms are known to science. The most common species of tapeworm in humans are fish tapeworm, beef tapeworm, pork tapeworm, dwarf tapeworm, dog tapewom, uniocular hydatid and multiocular hydatid. 1.
Ear infection causes hearing loss and disorientation. One of the main things this bacteria is known for doing is resisting frequently used antibiotics. Some type of medications used to treat P. aeruginosa is gentamicin and carbenicillin. Researchers are looking for an antibiotic and vaccine to resist this bacterium, but none has been in luck so
Once feeding begins ticks release saliva that literally glues the tick in place so it cannot be removed easily. Once feeding is finished, which can be up to a week, the engorged tick drops off the host, lays eggs, and dies. Depending on the species a single female tick can lay up to 6500 eggs. Ticks are often associated with disease, and rightfully so. Ticks are carriers of two major diseases Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
Prevention can be done through vaccination of avoiding of any contact with an infected individual. Smallpox has been on Earth for hundreds of years and is known to be one of the most deadliest diseases/ epidemics ever experienced by humanity. It kills about thirty percent of all people infected and spreads very quickly as it is highly contagious. Smallpox is known to happen to even some of the most significant icons all throughout history including George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Mozart. It's been one of the deadliest diseases to ever spread in this world for the past hundred years which has now been eradicated saving millions of lives every year.
It was named consumption as it seemed to eat away and "consume" its victims. It even gained the nickname, the White Plague. Human bones about 9000 years old show the revealing signs of TB making it an ancient disease that very well could have plagued people during biblical times (Koehler). Leviticus chapter 26 speaks about what God will do or not do for his people depending on whether they meet His conditions. In verse 16, He says “I will do this: I will appoint over you [sudden] terror (trembling, trouble), even consumption and fever that consume and waste the eyes and make the [physical] life pine away.
They either make hearts rates slower or faster depending on if it is a stimulant or depressant. As shown in the data below, Pau D’Arco has varying results. Upon further research, Pau D’Arco is actually a stimulant proving the hypothesis wrong. It also could have been due to the worm dying in between tests, but it is impossible to prove that theory right. The data collected may not be the most reliable since the two test had two different worms, and that might cause two different reactions to the chemicals.
The disease primarily infects the lungs but as it progress, the infection can spread to other parts of the body. TB is one of the worst diseases of the 19th century and currently the ninth leading cause of death worldwide. There are two main types of screening tests for tuberculosis – a skin test and a culture test. 1. Mantoux test is a screening tool for TB and a major
This virus is known to be the number one cause of infant diarrhea this virus has been in effect since 1973, and although treatable, Rotavirus attacks mainly young infants and children, due their somewhat weak immune system, therefore many consider the virus deadly and dangerous. Rotavirus is a very contagious virus that causes the stomach and intestines to swell up; adults can also be affected by Rotavirus however the symptoms are not as severe as they are in young children. The symptoms of the virus can take up to two days to show up, they include, watery diarrhea, stomach pain, fever, vomiting, dehydration, and loss of appetite. Due to two of the symptoms being dehydration and diarrhea, many people with Rotavirus must be hospitalized, assuring that the patient receive proper care and fluids their body needs. Since there is no antiviral drug, the patient must drink plenty of liquids and occasionally receive IV fluids as well.
Aerobic organisms particularly Clostridium perfringes and other species of bacteriodes and aerobic cocci may also present (Klein et al. 1995). Pseudomonas aeruginosa causes a wide variety of septic infections in man and other vertebrates (Hare and Wilits, 1962). Among species much less commonly encountered in wound infections are Pasteurella multicida in animal bites, Corynebacterium diphtheria and Bacillus anthracis in malignant pustules of skin. In chronic infection that are slow to heal and in pus showing no
How many people do you think have thought about dying from such a little creature? Yellow fever is a deadly flu-like disease caused by mosquitoes. The disease can give you a high fever and turn your eyes and skin yellow, which is also known as jaundice. There are different stages of yellow fever. There is no cure for yellow fever, but it can be prevented with a vaccine (Healthline).
People who had other underlying health problems made it difficult to identify symptoms of SARS because it made it hard to differentiate (CDC, 2013). 3. Scientists believed the newly infected individuals produced quality specimen and it was impossible to detect the microbe once the infected individual started to recover. Scientists wanted to compare patients blood antibody test from early in their illness to the end of their illness in which they found that
Since Lyme disease can resemble many other diseases such as; multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, as well as psychiatric illnesses, it is often misdiagnosed. Most people get infected from a bite of an immature tick, which are close to the size of the head of the pin, making the bite painless and hard to detect at the time of the bite. The transmission of Lyme is more likely the longer the tick is attached. Ticks may stay attached for days if undisturbed, making it more likely to get the
“Ebola Zaire (EBO-Z) killed two hundred and eighty of the three hundred and eighteen people infected Yambuku Mission Hospital (YMH) used the same needles with different patients. They did not dispose of them properly or sterilize the needles. EBO-Z was then spread throughout YMH, infecting staff members as well as patients” (Commission). This encounter shows how Ebola Zaire (EBO-Z) has been easily spread throughout the YMH and can ruin the human population. EBO-Z will eat its victim and lead them to a painful death.
Hantavirus is a little different. Once the virus enters you your body tries to improve its immune system by creating inflammation. However, the disease affects your blood vessels and makes them leaky when inflammation occurs. From here, the liquid fills your air sacks in the lungs and causes short breathing. If the disease travels to the heart it can cause blood vessels all over the body to leak and make basic functions of the body difficult to do.
