Infectious Diseases

Infectious diseases are contagious and caused by different microorganisms: bacteria, viruses, helminths, parasites, mites, etc.

These diseases are characterized by cycles and postinfectious immunity.

Infectious diseases cause the organism’s immune system to react and activate, which leads to the production of cytotoxic lymphocytes, as well as specific antibodies, which should “digest” and destroy the disease-causing microbes.

Early diagnosis and treatment of these diseases frequently prevents the complications and their spread, which is a matter of nation-wide healthcare.
