Viral Pathogenesis and Immunity

Please consult the latest official manual style if you have any questions regarding the format accuracy. The fundamental process of viral infection is the viral replicative cycle. The cellular response to that infection may range from no apparent effect to cytopathology with accompanying cell death to hyperplasia or cancer. Viral disease is some harmful abnormality that results from viral infection of the host organism. Clinical disease in a host consists of overt signs and symptoms. A syndrome is a specific group of signs and symptoms.
It requires a living cell in which to multiply. A viral infection can lead to a spectrum of symptoms from asymptomatic no overt symptoms to severe disease. People may get viruses by swallowing or inhaling them, by being bitten by insects, or through sexual contact. Most commonly, viral infections involve the nose, throat, and upper airways, or systems such as the nervous, gastrointestinal, and reproductive systems. Doctors may base the diagnosis on symptoms, blood tests and cultures, or examination of infected tissues. Antiviral drugs may interfere with the reproduction of viruses or strengthen the immune response to the viral infection.

A viral disease or viral infection occurs when an organism's body is invaded by pathogenic viruses , and infectious virus particles virions attach to and enter susceptible cells. Basic structural characteristics, such as genome type, virion shape and replication site, generally share the same features among virus species within the same family. Exceptions are known to this rule: poxviruses replicate within the cytoplasm and orthomyxoviruses and hepatitis D virus RNA viruses replicate within the nucleus. The clinical characteristics of viruses may differ substantially among species within the same family:. Vertical and sexual . From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Human, animal or plant disease resulting from a viral infection.
Viral diseases contribute to substantial morbidity and mortality and remain a major threat to global health. Although vaccines are notably successful in the prevention of many infections, effective vaccines are not available for most viruses including the pandemic human immunodeficiency virus HIV and hepatitis C virus HCV. Direct antiviral agents can efficiently inhibit the replication of certain viruses but generally do not provide sterilizing cures, with the notable exception of HCV infection. Emerging and re-emerging viruses have caused an increasing number of disease outbreaks in humans and animals. There is unmet medical need to further our understanding of viral pathogenesis to enable more effective control and prevention of viral infections.
Viruses are not important causes of clinical disease of rabbits in the USA but include the infectious fibromas, papillomatosis, rabbitpox, myxomatosis, and a herpesvirus infection virus 3. Rotaviral enteritis also has been diagnosed in the USA and seems to contribute to the overall problem of intestinal disease in rabbits. Viral hemorrhagic disease is found in almost every country that raises rabbits except the USA. Rapid response and cooperation between federal and state agencies contained this outbreak and eliminated the source of infection. The USA is currently considered free of rabbit hemorrhagic disease.
Pathogenesis is the process by which an infection leads to disease. Pathogenic mechanisms of viral disease include (1).
Viral Diseases of Rabbits
By Ma. Speaking of viral pathogenesis, it must describe the features and factors of viral pathogen, hosts and environment.
Viral infections are the leading cause of gastroenteritis globally and in Europe and may also cause enterically transmitted hepatitis and illness after migrating from the human intestine to other organs. Various viruses have been implicated in foodborne illness, with two types of virus, Norovirus and Hepatitis A, causing the most significant burden of foodborne illness and outbreaks, as they are highly contagious. Rotavirus is one of the major causes of diarrhoea in children and Hepatitis E, while primarily associated with waterborne infections, has been associated with foodborne outbreaks. Food borne transmission is important in the epidemiology of these four viruses, in addition to person-to-person contact and environmental transmission. Adenovirus, Astrovirus, Sapovirus, tick borne encephalitis and Avian Influenza H5N1 may also cause viral infections where food is a vector.

Viral pathogenesis is the study of the process and mechanisms by which viruses cause diseases in their target hosts , often at the cellular or molecular level. It is a specialized field of study in virology. Pathogenesis is a qualitative description of the process by which an initial infection causes disease. There are several factors that affect pathogenesis. Some of these factors include virulence characteristics of the virus that is infecting. In order to cause disease, the virus must also overcome several inhibitory effects present in the host.
Patients with EVD generally have an abrupt onset of fever and symptoms typically 8 to12 days after exposure incubation period for current outbreak has a mean of approximately 9 to 11 days. Initial signs and symptoms are nonspecific and may include elevated body temperature or subjective fever, chills, myalgias, and malaise. Because of these nonspecific symptoms, particularly early in the course of the disease, EVD often can be confused with other more common infectious diseases such as malaria, typhoid fever, meningococcemia, and other bacterial infections for example, pneumonia. Patients can progress from the initial nonspecific symptoms after about 5 days to develop gastrointestinal symptoms such as severe watery diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Other symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, headache, or confusion also may develop.
NCBI Bookshelf. Baron S, editor. Medical Microbiology. Pathogenesis is the process by which an infection leads to disease. Pathogenic mechanisms of viral disease include 1 implantation of virus at the portal of entry, 2 local replication, 3 spread to target organs disease sites , and 4 spread to sites of shedding of virus into the environment. Factors that affect pathogenic mechanisms are 1 accessibility of virus to tissue, 2 cell susceptibility to virus multiplication, and 3 virus susceptibility to host defenses.
