EPI 2.4 Natural History of Disease, Disease Transmission & Epi Triangle

Incidence is the rate of new (or newly diagnosed) cases of the disease.

Prevalence is the actual number of cases alive, with the disease either during a period of time (period prevalence) or at a particular date in time (point prevalence).

The relationship between incidence and prevalence depends greatly on the natural history of the disease state being reported. In the case of an influenza epidemic, the incidence may be high but not contribute to much growth of prevalence because of the high, spontaneous rate of disease resolution. In the case of a disease that has a low (or zero) cure rate, but where maintenance treatment permits sustained survival, then incidence contributes to continuous growth of prevalence. In such cases, the limitation on prevalence growth is the mortality which occurs in the population. Obviously, prevalence will continue to grow until mortality equals or exceeds the incidence rate.

EPI Post Lab Act 1.6 Bacteria, Virus, Parasites, Prion

Host? Genus species ex; Staphlococcus aureus CDC = make laws(?) Make Recommendations(?) Announcements(?) Reports Morbitity-Mortality(?) Reports Outbreaks(?) Travel Recommendations(?)

Viruses causing LRIs such as tracheobronchitis, bronchiolitis, and pneumonia are influenza virus, RSV, parainfluenza virus, and adenovirus. Young children, the elderly, and patients with compromised cardiac, pulmonary, or immune systems are at greatest risk for serious disease. In children, 15% to 25% of pneumonias are caused by RSV, 15% by parainfluenza virus, and 7% to 9% by adenovirus.  Vaccine blocks, but you still will display a infection.  Usually no medicine.  Interferon will help body help itself.

Antibiotics are not effective against viruses, and the Centers for Disease Control and other health organizations now recommend against using antibiotics unless there is clear evidence of a bacterial infection.  Humans make proteins called ANTIBODIES to respond to ALL FOREiGN SUBSTANCES MHC=major histocompatibility complex Hello my name is "Jeff Bradley"
Most viral infections tend to resolve on their own without treatment so any treatment generally is aimed at providing relief from symptoms like pain, fever and cough.

PBS "Sticky" Sickle Cells really means....?


Sickle cell anemia is a genetic disease that affects hemoglobin, the oxygen transport molecule in the blood. The disease gets its name from to the shape of the red blood cells under certain conditions. Some red blood cells become sickle-shaped and these elongated cells get stuck in small blood vessels so that parts of the body don't get the oxygen they need. Sickle cell anemia is caused by a single code letter change in the DNA. This, in turn, alters one of the amino acids in the hemoglobin protein. Valine sits in the position where glutamic acid should be. The valine makes the hemoglobin molecules stick together, forming long fibers that distort the shape of the red blood cells, and this brings on an attack.

EPI and PBS Friday Work

Please complete Concept Map for mastery on Activity 1.0

Public health workers use four general strategies to manage an epidemic: quarantine, immunization, education about disease prevention, and early, aggressive treatment of ill people. Describe the disease and how it is transmitted.
  1. find out when and where it was first observed.
  2. summarize how public health workers managed the outbreak.
  3. describe how the disease affected people and communities
  4. list preventive measures people can follow to avoid infection.
Please complete conclusions questions on Act 1.0
Please begin Act 1.1

Principles of Biomedical Science
Please turn in Act 3.1.2 Diaries and conclusion questions.
Please start Act 3.2.1 and work on it as a class.  Please use Chrome to........
.View the animations of protein synthesis listed below and complete any associated tasks. Take notes in your laboratory journal. Make sure to include a detailed description of the entire process including the steps for transcription and translation.
