 SCI 362 - Infection and Immunity


Infection refers to signs and symptoms resulting from  pathogenesis induced by micro-organisms and developing in host tissues. In all infectious diseases, similar sequential events take place: encounter, entry, spread, multiplication, damage and outcome. General and specific knowledge of the highly diverse microbial world (microbiology) constructs a framework. This  framework forms the basis for understanding microbe-specific and host defense-specific sequence of events underlying the pathogenesis of infectious diseases. Immunology is the discipline, which investigates, unravels, and applies the biological principles and mechanisms, which protect individuals and species against infections by viruses, bacteria and parasites.
