Term Paper facts / Bird Flu

QuestionAnswer
what is the diagnosis diagnosis is difficult due to the fact it resembles the common cold and common flu, recognizing the sysmptoms is critical to diagnosis a patient , you suspect having the H5n1 Avian fluenza virus
Sx --- common Flu & Cold = STFCD/V Sore throat - Fever - Cough - Diarrhea & Vomit
38 Celsius = 100.4 F 38 Celsius = 100.4 F
Sx --- Avian Fluenza Virus [H5N1]...specific symptoms besides (STFCDV) Fever over 100.4F (38C), ---Nose & Gum bleeds, Eye-infection, severe pain when breathing, Pain in Lungs, Severe - shortness of breath, difficulty Breathing
Recovery is dependent on treating the patient in time, so ill people need to see their doctor as quickly as possible. Recovery is dependent on treating the patient in time, so ill people need to see their doctor as quickly as possible.
how to convert Celsius to Farenheit Take the temperature in Celsius and multiply 1.8.------ Add 32 degrees----- The result is degrees Fahrenheit
define hemagglutinin ---an agglutinin (as an antibody or viral capsid protein) that causes...hemagglutination
define hemagglutination ----agglutination of red blood cells
define cap·sid (kăp'sĭd) protein shell that surrounds a virus particle
define virus ((virology) ultramicroscopic infectious agent that replicates itself only within cells of living hosts; many are pathogenic; a piece of nucleic acid (DNA or RNA) wrapped in a thin coat of protein)
To convert a Fahrenheit temperature into Celsius: Tc = (5/9)*(Tf-32) For example, to convert a Celsius temperature of 100 degrees into degrees Fahrenheit, first multiply the Celsius temperature reading by nine-fifths to get 180. Then add 32 to 180 and get 212 degrees Fahrenheit.
define neuraminidase ( nur-&-'mi-n&-"dAs) a glycosidase that splits mucoproteins by breaking a glucoside link and occurs especially in influenza viruses as an antigen
define glycosidase [ glI-'kO-s&-"dAs ] an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of a bond joining a sugar of a glycoside to an alcohol or another sugar unit
define glycoside any of numerous sugar derivatives that contain a nonsugar group bonded to an oxygen or nitrogen atom and that on hydrolysis yield a sugar (as glucose)
hydrolysis, which is the breakdown of organic materials through the use of water hydrolysis, which is the breakdown of organic materials through the use of water
Influenza viruses are spread from person to person primarily through the coughing and sneezing of infected persons Influenza viruses are spread from person to person primarily through the coughing and sneezing of infected persons
TESTing NPT, LADT, NAAT---Near patient testing, --Lab Antegen Detection Test,-- Nucleic Acid Amplification Tests
if tests are positive----contact and send a sample to the WHO - world health organization, CDC- Center for Disease Control if tests are positive----contact and send a sample to the WHO - world health organization, CDC- Center for Disease Control
near patient tests (NPT) and field antigen detection tests commercially available for the diagnosis of human influenza. results within approximately 30 minutes.
The European Influenza Surveillance Scheme (EISS) task group on near patient test recommended use of NPT data as an adjunct to virus isolation for early warning of a change in influenza activity in humans. The European Influenza Surveillance Scheme (EISS) task group on near patient test recommended use of NPT data as an adjunct to virus isolation for early warning of a change in influenza activity in humans.
(EISS) recommend using NPT as part of diagnosis as an early warning of a change in influenza activity in humans, because the sensitivity is limited to 70-75% compared to virus isolation and NAT.

in the doctors office you should --- get a swab to derive a fluid sample from the throat or the nose, ---it has kept at about 39 degrees Fahrenheit before it is transported from the doctor's office to the state lab.---- "The virus is very fragile once yo "The virus is very fragile once you take it outside of the body, so it's kept cold," "We like to have it within 24 hours of collection."
In one step, detergent is used to inactivate the viral sample, rendering it harmless. In another step, scientists extract genetic material from the virus for testing.
