Microorganisms: infection of the host
Analyze the different "types" of viral or bacterial infection; differentiate a viral infection from that induced by other microorganisms and parasites. Locate the report that microorganisms and parasites cause human with the host, characterizing the phenomenon of "infection". Analyze the factors and mechanisms that determine the spread of microorganisms in infectious processes.
Biological essential features of microorganisms and parasites responsible for human infections
Identify the structures and functions necessary to perform the metabolic processes (adhesion) and to determine the replication and infection. Classify microorganisms and parasites in the various stages of aggregation of living matter. Analyze the phenomenon of variation and mutation of microorganisms with antibiotic resistance.
Define the principle of "selective toxicity" finalizing the therapeutic use of antimicrobials. Describe and classify the inhibitory mechanisms, the site of action, the antibiotic spectrum of action, as well as for antiviral and antifungal substances. Analyze the ways of penetration in the body, the spread differential in the infected, the presence of antigens in the various districts of the organism (blood, secretions, excretions) for the purpose of "contagion" and laboratory diagnosis. Identify the different laboratory methods that allow the identification of the causative agent of infection and those necessary deepening of the biology of microorganisms and human parasites.
Which certain information base scientific inherent cellular pathology and tissue suitable for the preparation of the student for those materials which will be used after the completion of training.
Introduction to General Pathology with detailed study of the causes of diseases, cellular pathology, inflammation, immunology, oncology.
