Cancer Late Viral Infections
Cancer Late Viral Infections
For viral infections, we could point (i.e., punctum) out the following relevant items. Viral, having to make out with a virus (i.e., filtrable virus). Infection, invasion and multiplication of germs in the body (i.e., corpus). Infections can occur in any part (i.e., pars) of the body and can spread throughout the body. The germs may be bacteria, viruses, yeast, or fungi. They can cause a fever (i.e., febris, or pyrexia) and other problems, depending on where the infection occurs. When the body’s natural defense system (i.e., systema) is strong, it can often fight the germs and prevent infection. Some cancer treatments can weaken the natural defense system. Cancer is a term for diseases in which abnormal (i.e., deviant) cells divide without control and can invade nearby tissues. Cancer cells can also spread to other parts of the body through the blood (i.e., haema) and lymph (i.e., lympha) systems. There are several main (i.e., hand) types of cancer. Carcinoma is a cancer that begins in the skin (i.e., cutis) or in tissues that line (i.e., linea) or cover internal (i.e., internus) organs. Sarcoma is a cancer that begins in bone (i.e., os), cartilage (i.e., cartilago, or chondrus), fat (i.e., adipose tissue), muscle (i.e., musculus, or see musculus), blood vessels, or other connective or supportive tissue. Leukemia (i.e., leukocytic sarcoma) is a cancer that starts in blood-forming tissue such as the bone marrow (i.e., medulla ossium), and causes large numbers of abnormal blood cells to be produced and enter the blood. Lymphoma and multiple myeloma (i.e., multiple myelomatosis, or myelomatosis multiplex) are cancers that begin in the cells of the immune system. Central nervous system (i.e., systema nervosum) cancers are cancers that begin in the tissues of the brain and spinal (i.e., rachial, or rachidial) cord (i.e., fasciculus, or funiculus). Also called malignancy.
- It is obvious that, a case of human polyomavirus Bk infection in a patient affected by late phase prostate (i.e., prostata, or glandula prostatica) cancer could viral infection be correlated with cancer progression. Prostate cancer, cancer that forms in tissues of the prostate (a gland (i.e., glandula) in the male (i.e., masculine) reproductive system (i.e., genital system) found below the bladder and in front of the rectum). Prostate cancer usually occurs in older men. Prostate is a gland in the male reproductive system. The prostate surrounds the part of the urethra (the tube (i.e., tuba) that empties the bladder) just below the bladder, and produces a fluid that forms part of the semen (i.e., seed, or seminal fluid). Progression is in medicine, the course of a
disease, such as cancer, as it becomes worse or spreads in the body.
- You can conclude that, however, he thinks future research on Sap-related molecules could point toward better therapies for other viral infections or autoimmune diseases.
- It seems to be, children who have the genetic defect that causes Xlp face (i.e., surface, or facies) a greater risk of severe complications from viral infections. Genetic, inherited; having to do with information that is passed from parents to offspring through genes in sperm (i.e., sperm cell, or spermatozoon) and egg
- It might seem apparant that, in Morocco, cervical (i.e., cervicalis) malignant neoplastic disease is a late sequel of a viral contagion (i.e., contagium) with certain Hpv (Infection Human Papillomavirus (i.e., papilloma virus) Infection (HPV)) types. Cervical, relating to the neck (i.e., cervix (i.e., neck, or cervix of uterus), or collum), or to the neck of any organ or structure (i.e., structura). Cervical lymph nodes are located in the neck. Cervical cancer refers to cancer of the uterine cervix, which is the lower (i.e., inferior, or lower tubercle), narrow end (the neck ) of the uterus (i.e., metra, or womb). HPV is a type of virus that can cause abnormal tissue growth (for example, warts) and other changes to cells. Infection for a long time with certain types of HPV can cause cervical cancer. HPV may also play a role in some other types of cancer, such as anal, vaginal, vulvar, penile (i.e., penial), oropharyngeal, and squamous (i.e., scaly) cell
skin cancers. Also called human papillomavirus.
- It appears to be that, wash your hands frequently when these viral infections are going around.
Pertaining to the theory Cancer Late Viral Infections , the next things were found:
- It’s possible to assume that, Veillette says his findings help explain the uncontrolled immune response that occurs during viral infections in children with XLP.
- You can notice, in some people, the viral load stays high, and Hiv (Human immunodeficiency (i.e., immune deficiency, or immunity deficiency) virus (HIV)) infection can get worse apace through the next stage. HIV is the reason of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (i.e., aids) (AIDS (i.e., acquired immunodeficiency syndrome)). As well called human immunodeficiency virus. Stage is the extent of a cancer in the body. Staging is usually based on the size of the tumor (i.e., neoplasm),
whether lymph nodes contain cancer, and whether the cancer has spread from the
original site (i.e., situs) to other parts of the body.
- It’s been found that, m to the viral capsid antigen appears ahead of time in infection and disappears within four to six weeks. Antigen, any
substance (i.e., substantia, or matter) that causes the body to make a
specific immune response.
- It looks that, if antibodies to both the viral capsid antigen and EBNA are present, then past contagion (from 4).
- Finally, it is clear that, the drugs are given to help keep you from getting a bacterial, viral, or fungal (i.e., fungous) infection.
An abnormal tissue that grows by cellular proliferation more rapidly than normal and continues to grow after the stimuli that initiated the new growth cease. Neoplasms show partial or complete lack of structural organization and functional coordination with the normal tissue, and usually form a distinct mass of tissue that may be either benign (benign tumor) or malignant (cancer)
A clear, transparent, sometimes faintly yellow and slightly opalescent fluid that is collected from the tissues throughout the body, flows in the lymphatic vessels (through the lymph nodes), and is eventually added to the venous blood circulation.

Structurally, the prostate consists of 30??????50 compound tubuloalveolar glands among which is abundant stroma consisting of collagen and elastic fibers and many smooth muscle bundles. The secretion of the glands is a milky fluid that is discharged by excretory ducts into the prostatic urethra at the time of the emission of semen

- Formerly, the specific agent of an infectious
- Specifically, a term for a group of infectious
agents, which, with few exceptions, are capable of passing through fine
filters that retain most bacteria, are usually not visible through the light
microscope, lack independent metabolism, and are incapable of growth or
reproduction apart from living cells. They have a prokaryotic genetic
apparatus but differ sharply from bacteria in other respects. The complete
particle usually contains either DNA or RNA, not both, and is usually covered
by a protein shell or capsid that protects the nucleic acid. They range in
size from 15 to several hundred nanometers. Classification of viruses depends
on physiochemical characteristics of virions as well as on mode of
transmission, host range, symptomatology, and other factors. For viruses not
listed below, see the specific name.
- Relating to or caused by a virus, as a viral

Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Although somewhat variable in size (0.5??????3 mm
in diameter) and in the proportions of various histologic components,
tubercle’s tend to be fairly well circumscribed, spheroid, firm lesions that
usually consist of three irregularly outlined but moderately distinct zones 1)
an inner focus of necrosis, coagulative at first, which then becomes caseous;
2) a middle zone that consists of a fairly dense accumulation of large
mononuclear phagocytes (macrophages), frequently arranged somewhat radially
(with reference to the necrotic material) resembling an epithelium, and hence
termed epithelioid cells; multinucleated giant cells of Langhans type may also
be present; and 3) an outer zone of numerous lymphocytes, and a few monocytes
and plasma cells. In instances in which healing has begun, a fourth zone of
fibrous tissue may form at the periphery. Morphologically indistinguishable
lesions may occur in diseases caused by other agents; many observers use the
term nonspecifically, with reference to any such granuloma; other clinicians
use tubercle only for tuberculous lesions, and then designate those of
undetermined causes as epithelioid-cell granulomas

Any neoplasm of lymphoid or reticuloendothelial tissues; in general use, synonymous with malignant lymphoma; present as apparently solid tumors composed of cells that appear primitive or resemble lymphocytes, plasma cells, or histiocytes. Lymphomas appear most frequently in the lymph nodes, spleen, or other normal sites of lymphoreticular cells; may invade other organs or manifest as leukemia. Lymphomas are now classified by histology, immunophenotype, and cytogenetic analysis, according to cell of orgin (B or T cells) and degree of maturation. The current World Health Organization (WHO) classification of lymphoid neoplasms is based on the Revised European-American Lymphoma (REAL) classification and effectively replaces older schemes such as the Working Formulation and Rappaport classification, which were based solely on morphology.
