TB is an air-borne disease and their microbes enter into the lungs through nose of humans.
It is difficult to make anti-viral medicines, because ____.
Viral cells have few bio-chemical mechanisms of their own. They enter into our body cells and use our cellular machinery for their life processes.
The gametocytes are developed in the
The gametocytes are produced in the RBC of man. Liver of man is associated with the process of asexual reproduction. Salivary glands of the mosquito help in the storage of the sporozoites while the process of fertilization takes place in the intestine of the mosquito.
____ is an example of air-borne disease.
Pneumonia is an air-borne disease that spreads through the droplets by an infected person who sneezes or coughs.
Sporogony takes place in
Sporogony takes place in the intestine of the mosquito. The sporozoites thus formed migrate to the salivary glands of the mosquito.

Which one of the following causes malignant malaria?
Plasmodium falcipuram causes a malignant form of malaria which is often fatal.
Which of the following inhibits protein synthesis in bacteria?
Tetracycline interferes with bacterial ribosomes and inhibits protein synthesis.
The type of leucocytes is mainly involved in cell and antibody mediated immunity are ____.
T and B-lymphocytes of leucocytes are mainly involved in bringing about cell and antibody mediated immunity.
Which of the following is an example of killed vaccine?
In the vaccines for whooping cough, the bacteria Bordotella pertusis is killed by heat or chemicals.
In the human host, the sporozoites first reproduce asexually in the
The sporozoites first reach the liver through the blood and reproduce asexually in the liver tissues. From here they are then released into the RBC of man.
An antigen is isolated from the micro-organism for a ____.
In case of influenza vaccine, the important antigen is isolated from the micro-organism.
The childhood immunization programmes are important, because ____.
