PROJECT GOAL The goal of this project is to improve the quality of care provided to residents in nursing homes; in areas of lower socioeconomic status, and those insured by….
Vaccine development for diseases caused by protists (e.g. malaria, Chagas’ disease) has been much less successful than for bacterial or viral diseases. why?
Protozoal pathogens trick the immune system; the life cycle of a protist or fungal pathogen is tricky to learn; infections by eukaryotic pathogens are tricky to treat and raising funds for vaccine development is tricky to accomplish! It should be clear from your review of the learning materials in this module that this theme of multiplicity is apt for eukaryotic microbes!
In this discussion you apply what you have learned in the readings and, together with your classmates, are given the opportunity to examine diseases caused by eukaryotic microbes in more detail.
Please respond to the following:
Vaccine development for diseases caused by protists (e.g. malaria, Chagas’ disease) has been much less successful than for bacterial or viral diseases. Discuss at least one biological AND one geopolitical reason for this fact.
Initial Discussion Post
Your initial post should be at least 250 words and must substantively integrate the assigned readings from the module with proper APA style formatting// You may use additional sources and materials as long as they are relevant to the discussion and cited properly
