1. For this assignment you will research an infectious disease and create a PowerPoint presentation on the findings by providing the following for the chosen disease: • disease name, means of transmission and usual reservoirs • etiologic agent, its general characteristics and key tests for identification (be specific for this microbe!) • historical information to include when and who isolated the microbe and any significance of its name • signs and symptoms of the disease • microbial virulence mechanisms contributing to the disease process • control or treatment for the disease • current outbreaks or cases, both globally and locally (include incidence figures for each) • prevention, particularly current research about a vaccine or other means of control/prevention • Minimum five reliable Internet references, plus any other references used.

The report should contain the following information COVER SHEET must have a title with the name of the disease and must have the names of student TEXT (main body of info)—double -spaced, single-sided pages, 12 point font. Project Content A. What is the causative agent of the disease? Is it a bacterium, a virus, a prion, or a eukaryote? 1. If it is a bacterium, what are the characteristics of the cell (Gram-reaction?, cell shape and arrangement? metabolic capabilities?). 2. If it is a virus, what are its characteristics (DNA, positive-strand RNA, negative-strand RNA, or retrovirus? enveloped or naked? how large is it? does it form a provirus? anyunique characteristics of its multiplication cycle?). 3. If it is a prion, what is a prion? Wherein the body does it occur? What is the function of the normal-type protein? 4. If it is eukaryote, is it a fungus, an alga, a protozoan, a platyhelminth, or a nematode? Is it multicellular or unicellular? What is its life cycle? B. History: How long have we known about this disease? 1. Describe the changes in our knowledge and attitudes toward this disease throughout history. C. Epidemiology: Describe the prevalence and transmission of this disease. 1. Where (in the world) is the disease prevalent? How many people are currently infected? What is the rate of new infections? What are the rates of morbidity and mortality? 2. What is (are) the reservoir(s) of the pathogen? What is (are) the mode(s) of transmission? D. Pathology: Describe the pathogenic effects on cells, tissues, and organ systems. 1. Where in the body (what tissues/organs/cells) does the pathogen affect? 2. What damage does the pathogen inflict? How is this damage inflicted (is there direct mechanical damage? is a toxin produced? does the immune response cause damage?)? 3. What is the time sequence of the disease (length of incubation, prodrome, illness, decline, and convalescence)? 4. What are the major signs and symptoms? E. Response and Treatment 1. Describe the activity of our immune system against the pathogen. 2. What types of medical treatments exist? Describe how these treatments affect the progression of the disease. 3. Describe prophylactic measures that can be taken to limit the risk of infection. F. Socio-politico-economic 1. Describe any historic or present day social, economic, or political issues that either help or hinder us in limiting the spread of the disease. 2. Suggest policies and practices that can be employed to help with limiting the spread of the disease. For each policy and practice, describe what will be needed (what we have to sacrifice) in order to properly implement the proposal. G.

1. For this assignment you will research an infectious disease and create a PowerPoint presentation on the findings by providing the following for the chosen disease:

  • disease name, means of transmission and usual reservoirs
  • etiologic agent, its general characteristics and key tests for identification (be specific for this microbe!)
  • historical information to include when and who isolated the microbe and any significance of its name
  • signs and symptoms of the disease
  • microbial virulence mechanisms contributing to the disease process
  • control or treatment for the disease
  • current outbreaks or cases, both globally and locally (include incidence figures for each)
  • prevention, particularly current research about a vaccine or other means of control/prevention
  • Minimum five reliable Internet references, plus any other references used.
