Interferes with purine and thymine biosynthesis For the next five questions select the virulence factor from the list below which best matches each of the adaptive functions: Tightly binds and solubilizes iron for uptake by bacteria Provides adhesion to select tissues Increases penetration through or between cells to underlying tissues Interferes with phagocytosis Confers motility to reach infective site For the next five questions select the disease from the list below which best matches each of the transmission pattern descriptions: Communicable by direct acquisition via vertical transmission Communicable by indirect transmission via air droplets Communicable by direct transmission via a biological vector Non-communicable Communicable by indirect transmission via fomites For the next five questions use the descriptions from the list below to label the course of a UTI (urinary tract infection): Pathogen multiplies at high levels; exhibits greatest toxicity; becomes entrenched in bladder tissue; chemotherapy is indicated Immune response; antibiotic result; probiotic replacement of depleted intestinal flora is indicated
Intensity of subjective evidence from infection and disease as perceived by the patient Prodromal stage Contact with pathogen at the portal of entry For the next five questions select the term from the list below which best matches each of the descriptions: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for health care workers regarding the prevention of disease transmission when handing patients and body substances An animal that transports an infectious agent but is not infected by it The presence of viable bacteria in circulating blood Condition in which a toxin (microbial or otherwise) is spread throughout the bloodstream The microbial cause of disease; the agent For the next five questions use drug selections A through E to match them with the most appropriate clinical description Female, age 42, finishing a course of erythromycin for a strep throat infection has developed vaginitis resulting from excessive growth of Candida albicans 11-year-old gang member is admitted to the emergency room with an infected tattoo containing red, swollen, painful, pus-containing lesions; Rapid diagnostic test confirms Staphylococcus aureus as the source of the infection; Patient is allergic to beta-(B) lactam antibiotics A U.S. Marine sergeant is wounded as a result of an IED (improvised explosive device); His wounds are concentrated in the abdominal, pelvic, upper thigh, and gluteal region with foreign bodies (including projectile fragments, clothing, dirt) causing devitalized tissue, tissue ischemia, and hematoma. The wounds will likely become infected without rapid, appropriate antimicrobial prophylaxis initiated prior to evaculation from the theater; Common microorganisms causing battlefield infections include Gram-positives and Gram-negatives – E coli, Streptococcus, Proteus, Staphylococcus, Klebsiella
