Human disease cause by Virus

Viruses are obligate intracellular parasite. They are noncellular body. It consisting either DNA or RNA
molecule enclosed in a coat of protein. They can reproduce in the living host cells. When virus enters
in the host cell and it create infection in host and cause different disease. Virus enters in host by many
different ways like blood, saliva, etc. here are some most commonly observed viral diseases:

Disease- Causative agent- Transmission

AIDS- Human immunodeficiency virus(HIV) - Sexual contact

Hepatitis- Hepatitis A,B, C, D, E- Contaminated blood and blood product

Influenza- Influenza virus- Droplet infection

Rabies- Rabies virus- Bit from an infected animal

Measles- Measles virus- Respiration and aerosol transmission

Human diseases caused by protozoan

Protozoa are unicellular eukaryotic organisms. They are free-living or parasitic organism. Several
protozoan species infect human and inhabit the body as parasite or commensalisms. Some species
cause human disease. These diseases are observed in warmer climate. They require intermediate host
like mosquitoes etc.

Disease- Causative agent- Transmission

Amoebiasis- Entamoeba histolytica- Food, water

African sleeping sickness- Trypanosoma brucei- Tsetse fly

American sleeping sickness- T. cruzi- Triatomid bug

Balantidiasis- Balantidium coli- Water, food

Giardiasis- Giardia lambila- Contact, water

Malaria- Plasmodium spp.- Mosquito

Leishmaniasis- Leishmania donovani- Sandfly

Trichomoniasis- Trichomonas vaginalis- Sexual contact

Human diseases caused by flatworms and roundworms

Flatworm and roundworm are invertebrate animals. Flatworm is from phyla platyhelminthes.
Roundworm is from phyla aschelminthes. They are parasite and live inside the host. Some common
diseases are given below:

Disease- Causative agent- Organ affected- Transmission

Beef tapeworm disease- Taenis saginata- Intestine-Beef consumption

Blood fluke disease- Schistossoma mansoni- Liver, lungs- Water contact

Eye worm disease- Loa loa- Eye connective tissue- Deerflies, horseflies
