VTMED 5400 - Host, Agent, and Defense (Foundation Course IV)


     
Fall. 12 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: VTMED 5310 . Course fee: course guide. Enrollment limited to: second-year veterinary students.

D. Bowman, staff.

This course seeks to develop an understanding of the interplay between the immunological system of the host and the most significant bacterial and viral agents that cause disease in animals. Lectures focus primarily on adaptive and innate immunity, as well as bacterial and viral pathogens and the diseases they cause. Autoimmunity, epidemiological methods to investigate infectious disease at the herd and single-animal levels, and techniques and tools to control infectious disease are also important components of the course. In the laboratory, animals are used to illustrate some aspects of infectious diseases.
