1 Lecture 15 B. Diseases of the Lower Respiratory Tract 1. Tuberculosis 2. Pneumonias (typical and atypical) 3. Legionnares’ disease 4. Q fever 5. Psittacosis and Chlamydial Pneumonia Chapter 10 – Foodborne and Waterborne Infections A. Foodborne and Waterborne Intoxications. 1. Botulism 2. Staphylococcal food poisoning 3. Clostridial food poisoning 4. Bacillus cereus food poisoning B. Foodborne and Waterborne Infections 1. Typhoid fever 2. Salmonellosis 3. Shigellosis 4. Cholera 5. E. coli diarrheas 6. Others: Ulcers, Camplyobacteriosis, Listeriosis, Brucellosis, and more. Tuberculosis Agent: Mycobacterium tuberculosis acid fast positive, rod-shaped bacteria with a waxy, mycolic acid , cell wall that is resistant to drying and disinfectants. Formation of a tubercle . 1. Mycobacterium tuberculosis is inhaled to the lungs. 2. Bacilli enters the alveolus 3. The bacilli multiply within macrophages. 4. Body’s immune system dispatches other macrophages. 5. Wall off infected cells – forms tubercle . (note: bacteria are not killed) Multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MRTB) TB strains resistant to two or more drugs, some cases to all known antibiotics. – Concentrated in the AIDS populations in U.S. – Associated higher than normal death. World: MRTB hotspots found in Estonia, Latvia, Russia, China, India, Iran, Romania, South American and Africa. (>3% cases had MRTB). Why?– Primarily because unsupervised patients stopped taking their medication prematurely . Tuberculosis continued • Immunization—BCG vaccine Current vaccine is injection of an attenuated (weakened) strain of Mycobacterium bovis . Gives tuberculosis in cows . Strain called bacille Calmette Guerin or BCG After Albert Calmette and Camille Guerin two french investigors who developed it in the 1920s. Not approved in the United States. Tuberculosis Worldwide
