Transcript

  • 1. Institute for Microbiology, Medical Faculty of Masaryk University and St. Anna Faculty Hospital in Brno Miroslav Votava, Vladana Woznicová MICROBIOLOGY AND MEDICINE February 1 6 , 200 9
  • 2. What is the Medical Microbiology? <ul><li>Medical microbiology = complex of sciences about microorganisms ( microbes ) that are of significance in medicine </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore, medical microbiology deals with: </li></ul><ul><li>microbes called pathogenic which cause diseases of man or animals </li></ul><ul><li>microbes which form so called normal microflora of human beings and animals </li></ul><ul><li>mutual relationships between microbes and their host </li></ul><ul><li>relations between the microbes and the environment </li></ul>
  • 3. Different kinds of microbiology <ul><li>Actually, there are two kinds of medical microbiology: human and veterinary one </li></ul><ul><li>But most often medical microbiology is considered as a science about microbes important for human medicine only </li></ul><ul><li>A part of medical microbiology which deals with the etiology, pathogenesis and diagnostics of diseases caused by microbes is called clinical microbiology </li></ul><ul><li>Besides medical microbiology, there are: </li></ul><ul><li>Sanitary microbiology </li></ul><ul><li>Environmental microbiology (of soil, water, plants etc.) </li></ul><ul><li>Food microbiology </li></ul><ul><li>Other kinds of industrial microbiology </li></ul>
  • 4. Division of microbiology <ul><li>bacteria bacteriology </li></ul><ul><li>mi c romycetes (moulds & yeasts) mycology </li></ul><ul><li>(algae) ( algology) </li></ul><ul><li>parasites parasitology </li></ul><ul><ul><li>protozoa protozoology </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>helminths helminthology </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>arthropods entomology </li></ul></ul><ul><li>viruses virology </li></ul><ul><li>general microbiology × special microbiology </li></ul>

  • 7. P arasites Enterobius vermicularis, photo: M.Dvořáčková
  • 8. V iruses The chicken embryo (right), photo: M.Dvořáčková
  • 9. What should we know about the microbe X ? – I <ul><li>1. Classification, morphology, structure </li></ul><ul><li>Is it a bacterium, a yeast, or a protozoon? </li></ul><ul><li>Bacterium: is it G+, G-, or does it stain differently? </li></ul><ul><li>Is it a coccus, rod, filament, spiral? </li></ul><ul><li>How are they arranged? In pairs, chains, clumps, palisades? </li></ul><ul><li>Do they produce spores, capsules, granules? </li></ul><ul><li>2. Physiology, biochemistry, genetics, tenacity </li></ul><ul><li>Is it an anaerobe? </li></ul><ul><li>Has it got any important biochemical property? </li></ul><ul><li>Is it interesting from the point of genetics? </li></ul><ul><li>Is it tenacious, or delicate? </li></ul>
  • 10. What should we know about the microbe X ? – II <ul><li>3. Antigenic structure </li></ul><ul><li>Does the microbe exist in one or several antigenic types? </li></ul><ul><li>4. Pathogenicity </li></ul><ul><li>Which disease or syndromes does it cause? </li></ul><ul><li>What are their Latin names? </li></ul><ul><li>5. Pathogenesis </li></ul><ul><li>What is the port of entry, dissemination through the body, excretion from it? </li></ul><ul><li>How do the symptoms develop? </li></ul><ul><li>What are the main factors of pathogenicity? </li></ul><ul><li>6. Immunity </li></ul><ul><li>Does it form at all? </li></ul><ul><li>Transient, or lifelong? Humoral, or cellular one? </li></ul>
  • 11. What should we know about the microbe X ? – III <ul><li>7. Epidemiology </li></ul><ul><li>Source of infection: man, animal, environment? </li></ul><ul><li>Way of transmission? </li></ul><ul><li>8. Prevention or prophylaxis </li></ul><ul><li>Do we vaccinate, or do we immunize passively? </li></ul><ul><li>Type of vaccine: attenuated, inactivated, toxoid? </li></ul><ul><li>9. Therapy </li></ul><ul><li>What is the drug of choice? </li></ul><ul><li>If an antibiotic, which one? </li></ul>
  • 12. What should we know about the microbe X ? – IV <ul><li>10. Laboratory diagnostics </li></ul><ul><li>Detection of the microbe – direct or indirect one? </li></ul><ul><li>If the direct one, what sample is taken from </li></ul><ul><li> the patient? </li></ul><ul><li> How is it examined? </li></ul><ul><li> If by culture, is a special medium needed? </li></ul><ul><li> How is the isolated strain identified? </li></ul><ul><li>If the indirect one, is a special serologic reaction </li></ul><ul><li> needed? </li></ul><ul><li> What is considered to be the positive result? </li></ul>
