The diagnosis of sarcoidosis is based on a compatible clinical and radiological picture, histological evidence of non-caseating granulomas and exclusion of other diseases which show a similar clinical or histological picture [].The clinical, radiological and histological features of sarcoidosis are discussed elsewhere in this by: 2. This is accompanied by commented case reports. The book is well structured and illustrated with numerous easy-to-grasp yet scientifically updated sketches. The novelty, immunological insight and praxis relevance for specialists as well as patients and interested laypeople makes this book appealing to a broad readership.

Diseases caused by single-celled protozoal parasites affect about one billion people with a particular incidence in tropical countries. The major contribution to these dramatic numbers is given by malaria, caused by protozoa belonging to the genus Plasmodium (P. falciparum, P. ovale, P. vivax, P. malariae), with P. falciparum being responsible for most severe forms of the disease and most Cited by:

V olume 2, Vaccines for. Resistance to parasitic protozoa appears to be similar to resistance against other infectious agents, although the mechanisms of resistance in protozoan infections are not yet as well understood.

Resistance can be divided into two main groups of mechanisms: (1) nonspecific mechanism(s) or factor(s) such as the presence of a nonspecific serum component that is lethal to the parasite; and (2 Cited by: 3.

The development of microbiology. In the late s and for the first decade of the s, scientists seized the opportunity to further develop the germ theory of disease as enunciated by Pasteur and proved by Koch. There emerged a Golden Age of Microbiology during which many agents of different infectious diseases were identified.

Molecular mimicry represents a shared immunologic epitope between a microbe and the host. 28 Pathogens bear elements that are similar enough in amino acid sequence or structure to self-antigen. Immune response can eventually turn towards the self-peptide as a result of cross-reactivity, leading to the activation of naïve, auto-reactive T cells specific to the corresponding by: 1.

Infectious diseases are typically classified as bacterial, viral, protozoal and so on. Knowing what bacteria are responsible for a particular disease indicates what antibiotic treatment to apply.

Diseases are said to be infectious or communicable if pathogens can be passed from one person to another. HIV is known to be associated with a wide range of immunological and haematological immunological changes include depletion in CD4+ T cell, cytokine dysregulation and immune dysfunction.

Abstract. Toxoplasmosis is a worldwide-distributed infection caused by Toxoplasma gondii, which causes a wide range of clinical syndromes in humans, mammals and birds.T. gondii is considered a parasite of veterinary and medical importance, because it may cause abortion or congenital disease in its intermediate hosts.

Despite the economic losses associated with T. gondii infection in farm Cited by: 1. HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) infects cells of the immune system and destroys or impairs their function.
