Trypanosoma cruzi is the etiologic agent of Chagas' disease, a major health problem in Latin America and an emerging infectious disease in the United States. Previously, we screened a T. cruzi sequence database by a computational-bioinformatic approach and identified antigens that exhibited the characteristics of good vaccine candidates. In this study, we tested the vaccine . - The canine vector-borne infectious diseases (CVBDs) are an emerging problem in veterinary medicine and the zoonotic potential of many of these agents is a significant consideration for human health. The successful diagnosis, treatment and prevention of these infections is dependent upon firm understanding of the underl.

Ideal for cardiologists who need to keep abreast of rapidly changing scientific foundations, clinical research results, and evidence-based medicine, Braunwald’s Heart Disease. is your indispensable source for definitive, state-of-the-art answers on every aspect of contemporary cardiology. 1 day ago The engineers won in the end, with air conditioning enjoying broad acceptance in the U.S. by the end of the World War II via two very different first was a dramatic expansion of the.
Left-sided heart failure (LHF) is the most common cause of right-sided heart failure (RHF). There is a multitude of causes of LHF including ischemia, hypertension, dilated cardiomyopathy, restrictive cardiomyopathy and myocardial infarction. Chronic lung disease and left to right shunt are also causes of RHF. The immunopathology includes dermatitis, immune complex-mediated kidney disease, and, chiefly, T-cell-mediated granuloma formation and fibrosis around disseminated parasite eggs. This review describes the mechanisms of induction and expression of immunopathology in infected persons and experimental animals.

2. Natural History and Pathogenesis. The natural history of Chagas disease includes an acute and a chronic phase. The high parasite load typical of acute T. cruzi infection is dampened by the immune response into a low-grade chronic persistent infection .CCC is an inflammatory cardiomyopathy that affects approximately 30% of infected individuals and Cited by: Immunopathology of Cardiac Lesions in Fatal Systemic Lupus Erythematosus ANIL K.

Both innate and adaptive immune responses are activated in the heart in response to tissue injury. The purpose of a cardiac inflammatory response is to resolve the trigger for it, thereby allowing the heart to adapt to substandard conditions acutely, and ultimately restore homeostasis and cardiovascular : Molly H.

Type I hypersensitivity is the most common type of hypersensitivity reaction. It is an allergic reaction provoked by re-exposure to a specific type of antigen, referred to as an allergen.
The diagnosis of an autoimmune blistering disease is suggested by the clinical and histopathological features. For routine histological examination, a fresh vesicle/blister (less than 24 hrs old) is biopsied, preferably in its entirety, placed in formaldehyde, and processed for hematoxylin & eosin staining .However, the diagnosis of an autoimmune blistering disease.

Currently he serves on the editorial board of the World Journal for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Surgery and is a reviewer for the Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Annals of Thoracic Surgery and European Journal of Cardiothoracic.
Rheumatic Fever is an inflammatory disease that occurs following a Streptococcus pyogenes infection, such as streptococcal pharyngitis or scarlet fever. Believed to be caused by antibody cross-reactivity that can involve the heart, joints, skin, and brain, the illness typically develops two to three weeks after a streptococcal infection.
Acute. The Heart in Rheumatic, Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases examines the complex mechanisms relating to cardiac diseases from a pathophysiological and clinical point of view. Autoimmune rheumatic diseases can affect the coronary vessels, myocardium, pericardium, heart valves and the conduction system.
Linkage studies. CVD may cluster in families. Twin and family studies have demonstrated that CVD aggregates in families, really a family history of early-onset of CVD has long been considered a risk factor for the disease (), and contributes to increase the risk independently of the well known risk factors (2, 3).
6/26/ 4 Common Diseases of the Cardiovascular System • Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) – Caused by atherosclerotic plaque in arteries supplying blood to legs. REVIEW Open Access An introduction to immunology and immunopathology Richard Warrington1*, Wade Watson2, Harold L Kim3,4, Francesca Romana Antonetti5 Abstract In basic terms, the immune system has two lines of defense: innate immunity and adaptive immunity.
The pathology of canine vector-borne diseases. The simple pathology of the CVBDs is relatively poorly described.
Few investigations have ever been made of the primary site of interaction of the agent-vector-host triad, i.e. the cutaneous site of vector attachment and feeding, which also represents the site of transmission of the agent and the point of initial engagement with the.
Conversely, in C3H mice, TMEV infection induces a non-CNS disease, myocarditis, with three distinctive phases: phase I, viral pathology with interferon and chemokine responses; phase II, immunopathology mediated by acquired immune responses; and phase III, cardiac fibrosis.
Cardiovascular Pathology, Fourth Edition, provides users with a comprehensive overview that encompasses its examination, cardiac structure, both normal and physiologically altered, and a multitude of abnormalities.
This updated edition offers current views on interventions, both medical and surgical, and the pathology related to them. The sixth edition of this best-selling textbook presents a systematic account of the effects, both good and bad, of the immune system.
Special emphasis is placed on what the immune system actually does in causing and preventing disease. Divided into two parts, the sixth edition discusses inflammation, the fundamentals of the immune system and how it is activated, the.
As a cardiac nurse and future NP i have a library of cardiac books. This is the best cardiology book i have read. The text is incredibly approachable and detailed.

Allergic diseases result from an exaggerated and often deleterious response of the immune system to specific antigens. 1 An increase in transepidermal water loss 2 and enzymes degrading components of the stratum corneum 3 and a decrease in ceramides was documented in human atopic dermatitis.
