diseases that cannot be transmitted and are caused by genetics, environment or diet
passing a pathogen by insect (mosquito/flea) that bites infected person and then bites a new person
virus reproduction method that results in host cell bursting open to release 100's of new viruses
viral reproduction stage in which virus DNA is injected into host cell and host cell DNA is disabled
viral reproduction stage in which virus takes over host DNA to manufacture and assemble new virus particles
virus reproduction stage in which host cells reproduce and copy viral DNA along with their own DNA. Host feels no symptoms
all cells that have their DNA contained inside a nucleus membrane; example animal and plant cells
nonliving particle of DNA wrapped in a protein coat that requires a host cell in order to reproduce
adaptive immune response
specific immune system that responds to each pathogen by producing specific antibodies and results in lasting immunity
WBC that circulate through the body and ingest any invading cell (bacteria, protozoa or fungi)
small hairs in your respiratory system that push out mucus to be swallowed into the stomach or coughed out
natural killer T-cells
cells that circulate through the body and poke holes in any viral infected host cell or cancerous host cell
humoral immune response
part of your adaptive immune response that includes B cells producing antibodies
cell mediated immune response
part of your adaptive immune response that includes T cells becoming cytotoxic
Memory B cell
WBC that is stored and capable of antibody production in the event of a reinfection with the same pathogen
Helper T cell
part of the adaptive immune response that receives a antigen message from macrophage and the initiates B cell division
protein created by the B cell that has is specifically shaped to cap an antigen on a single type of pathogen
Cytotoxic T cell
cell that is capable of destroying host cells infected by viruses during the cell mediated response
Memory T cell
Stored cell with memory of antigen that can become cytotoxic if a specific virus is reintroduced
acquired immunity to a specific pathogen as a result of exposure to the antigen through vaccine or infection
temporary resistance to infection by a specific pathogen due to injection or transfer of antibodies against that pathogen
