Explain how targeted therapy works ( in the treatment of cancer), and evaluate its effectiveness in treating cancer. You may wish to focus on a specific type of cancer Name - Vipanpreet kaur Student ID - 39298 Class - HAS-3 Word count- 1223 Targeted therapy, which first became available in the late 1990s, has had a significant impact on the treatment of cancer. Currently, because of advancement in the field of technology, various types of therapies are discovered to treat cancer.
Interferons are example of second line of defense. Interferons is a protein used to protect cells that are not infected from infections that surpassed the first line of defense. Another example is fever. A fever is when the body temperature abnormally rises caused by an infection. A fever helps reduce the growing rate of any pathogens.
Is it something that can help save people or is it a threat in which there are more consequences to come? With this intention, people should think twice about putting their lives into vaccinations. Considering the question being asked in the beginning, what exactly is a vaccination? According to MedicineNet, vaccination is an “injection of a killed microbe in order to stimulate the immune system against the microbe, thereby preventing disease. Vaccinations, or immunizations, work by stimulating the immune system, the natural disease-fighting system of the body.”
Quality Infection Control is a method used to prevent infections and reduce the spread of infection especially in hospital, human or animal health care facilities. The purpose of quality infection control is to reduce the incidence of infections. Pseudomonas is a gram-negative rode-shaped bacteria. It is an aerobic and actively motile bacteria. The most common species is Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
It is a antibody capable of removing bacteria and viruses from the immune system. If a donor donates enough, the immunoglobulin can stop the immune system from attacking itself and the peripheral
The tonsils are part of the human immune system. The immune system is what helps to fight off germs that can cause a variety of illnesses. They are there to process germs and help the body recognize different types of germs so that they can be fought off. Will my child 's immune system be weaker if the tonsils are removed?
Penicillin, is the first antibiotic that is medically used to fight off a large range of bacterial infection. For this experiment, we will be using ampicillin, it is a part of the penicillin drug group. The ampicillin inhibits the bacteria with the result of killing the bacterium or prevents it from multiplying. “When a bacterium multiplies, small holes open up in their cell walls as the daughter cells divide.
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.
The Immune System, which the cell attacks, is responsible for warding off enemies from the body. It consists of many parts, most notably lymph nodes, white blood cells, and lymphocytes.. When an infection is spotted, white blood cells swarm it and attack it. If the white blood cells cannot handle the infection, lymph nodes create lymphocytes, which attack the infection with renewed force, and help prevent infection in the future (Human Biology 149).
In the passage, General Background: About Antibiotic Resistance, the author gives a description of antibiotic resistance saying, “antibiotic resistance occurs when an antibiotic has lost its ability to effectively control on kill bacteria growth; bacteria are resistance and continue to multiply.” The author is saying that antibiotic resistance takes place when an antibiotic can no longer kill the bacteria because the bacteria has grown stronger and continues to grow stronger. B. Bacteria has become resistant to antibiotics
Which cells are involved? White blood cells (macrophages, natural killer cells, neutrophils, mast cells, eosinophils and dendritic cells). Lymphocytes (B cells and T cells). Relation between exposure and immunological memory?
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.
A fatty layer called myelin protects the nerve cell fibers by repelling water. The tissues hold more water if the protective myelin is damaged. This shows up on a scan as a white or darkened area, and it can be used to evaluate multiple sclerosis.
The pound of my heart and the gasps for oxygen in the last stretch of a cross country race demonstrate my body’s resilience in a strenuous situation. All of my body systems work tirelessly together in order to keep my feet moving across the finish line. The countless hours of preparation beforehand have been to train and prepare these systems to power me through a race, even when I want to give up. Much like a cross country race, over the semester I have learned that hard work beforehand pays off. The more I studied and prepared for tests, the better I would do.
