  • 1. 1Classification & Visualizationof Infective AgentsRumala MorelDepartment of Parasitology
  • 2. INFECTION MODULE 1 – Y2S2SYSTEMATIC STUDYOFINFECTIVE AGENTS
  • 3. 3Infective AgentsVirusesBacteriaFungiProtozoaHelminths(Prions) – Infective proteinsArthropodsEctoparasites & vectors of diseaseSpongiformencephalopathy
  • 4. 6/12/2013Visualizing microorganisms• Different stains• Microscopy - Light Microscopybright fieldphase contrastdark groundfluorescentElectron Microscopy
  • 5. 6/12/20131. CONDENSER lensfocuses light on thespecimen2. Light then passesthrough OCULAR &OBJECTIVE lensesMagnified ImageBright field Microscope
  • 6. 6/12/2013Dark groundmicroscopy
  • 7. 6/12/2013Phase contrastmicroscopyDark groundmicroscopy
  • 8. 9Visualization of Parasites• Hand lens /magnifying glass– helminth adults, arthopods• Light Microscopy– Low power x10 – helminth eggs– High power x40 – protozoan cysts &trophozoites– Oil immersion x100 – protozoa eg. malariaTechnique depends on the degree ofmagnification needed.SIZE OF THE PARASITE
  • 9. 10Biological classificationCarolus Linnaeus – 18th century(Systema naturae - 1735)Grouped species according toshared physical characteristics.IntroducedBinominal classification:Genus & specieseg. Homo sapiens
  • 10. 11First sorted into large groups and thereaftersubdivided to contain fewer and fewer organismbut sharing more and more common featuresBiological classification - by Linnaeus - 18th centuryKingdomPhylumFamilyClassOrderGenusspeciesGenus speciesBinomial systemPlasmodium falciparumNaming organismScientific namesitalicize OR underline

  • 12. 13Virus = an infectiousagent, consisting of geneticmaterial DNA or RNA wrapped upin a protein coat.100 x smaller than bacteriaInvades living cells and usesthem to keep itself alive and toreplicate itself.Some viruses can cause life-long and chronic infectionseg. Herpes virusesViruses
  • 13. Viral classification• DNA or RNA• Size and Morphology• Susceptibility to physical & chemical agents• Symptoms• Pathology• Host and tissue tropism• Transmission• Immunological properties

  • 21. 23• Unicellular• Animal like cells - heterotrophic nutrition -require preformed organic substances• Classified according to method oflocomotion• Trophozoites - actively feed and multiply• Cysts - resistant walls• Most free-livingProtozoaBinary division

  • 25. 27• 200 million cases of malaria annually• Killed more humans than any other disease.• 1 million deaths /year. 90% in sub-SaharanAfrica, an African child dies of malaria every 30sec.• Over half the worldspopulation live inmalarious areasMalariaFinger prick screening forMP = Malarial Parasite
  • 26. 28• Main causative organism - Entamoeba histolytica• Other causes – Balantidium coli, Trichiuris trichiura• Invade colonic mucosa ulcersParasitic diarrhoea – Blood & mucousBlood & mucousdiarrhoea=Amoebic dysenteryPortal vein (blood)Liver Amoebic hepatitisAmoebic liver abscessEntamoeba trohpozoiteEntamoeba cyst
