  1. inflammation of less than two weeks duration often associated with bacterial infections and usually characterized by the presence of neutrophils, monocytes, and macrophages
    acute inflammation
  2. blue-staining granulocytes that carry an IgE receptor and contain cytoplasmic granules filled with biologically active enzymes and cytokines that mediate the inflammatory process
  3. the protective protein covering over the nucleotide genome of a virus
  4. primary prevention of infectious diseases by administering antimicrobial drugs to prevent infection
  5. inflammation of more than two weeks duration characterized by the presence of mononuclear cells and often associated with endogenous infectious agents such as viruses or intracellular bacteria or the presence of a foreign body
    chronic inflammation
  6. the persistence of potentially pathogenic infectious agents in living tissue without causing tissue damage or disease
  7. swelling of tissue
  8. constituents primarily of bacterial cell walls that cause cellular or tissue damage, often mediated by the host immune response
  9. red-staining granulocytes that contain biologically active proteins and enzymes that mediate defense against parasitic infections. Eosinophils also produce cytokines that down-regulate the inflammatory response, remodel extracellular matrix during tissue healing, and mediate many adverse responses during asthmatic attacks
  10. redness of the skin associated with inflammation
  11. agents produced and released primarily by bacteria into the environment that disrupt cell function and/or cause cell and tissue damage
  12. any of a variety of spore producing plants that can cause a wide variety of diseases ranging from acute irritation to chronic inflammation and potentially life threatening infection, especially among individuals with immune compromise
  13. a bacterial sexually-transmitted disease
  14. a major group of white blood cells that have irregular, lobed nuclei and granules in their cytoplasm
  15. areas of tissue damage caused by chronic inflammation characterized by large areas of tissue destruction surrounded by fibrous elements of extracellular matrix and the presence of large, bizarre inflammatory cells
  16. an inflammatory disease of the liver caused by any of at least six different viruses. The most prevalent form is hepatitis B
    infectious hepatitis
  17. disease caused when the virulence of microbiologic agents overcomes host immune defenses resulting in tissue invasion and damage
  18. the localized reaction that occurs in tissue in response to an infection or physical or chemical injury
  19. white blood cells
  20. a subgroup of mononuclear cells that includes the T and B cells that mediate immune reactions
  21. a protozoan disease transmitted by mosquitoes characterized by high fevers and systemic infection that may cause death
  22. cells that are similar to basophils in form and function that originate in the bone marrow and migrate to connective tissue surrounding blood vessels
    mast cells
  23. a subgroup of mononuclear cells that are called monocytes when they are in the bloodstream and macrophages when they are in tissues. These cells are the APC's that mediate endocytosis and presentation of antigen to T and B cells during immune reactions
  24. a major group of white blood cells that have round non-segmented nuclei and smooth cytoplasm
    mononuclear cells
  25. non-staining granulocytes that contain digestive endosomes and are the principal mediators of phagocytosis
  26. primarily protozoa and worms that cause chronic inflammation and disease by invading tissues, often as a consequence of consuming contaminated food or water
  27. disease-causing
  28. a porous condition or state of cells or tissues that allows liquids to pass through them
  29. cells capable of phagocytosis including neutrophils, monocytes, and macrophages
  30. specialized blood cells that interact with coagulation proteins in the blood to form clots and stop bleeding from damaged blood vessels
  31. another term for granulocyte
    polymorphonuclear leukocyte or PMN
  32. single celled animals
  33. any of a variety of fluke-like worms that cause parasitic infections of the liver, intestines, and bladder associated with chronic inflammation and extensive tissue damage
  34. a bacterial sexually-transmitted disease
  35. a chronic inflammatory disease that usually originates in the lungs but may spread throughout the body caused by an intracellular bacterium capable of developing resistance to multiple antibiotics
  36. the degree of damage or injury that a toxin or infectious agent is capable of causing to cells, tissues, or living organisms
