Disease name: Poliomyelitis (Polio)
Picorna virus Infects and multiplies in the throat and small intestine.
Migrates to lymphnodes and into blood (Viremia). If Viremia persist
virus penetrates the capillary wall and enters central nervous system
where the virus has a high affinity for motor nerves
Virulence factors:
Portal of entry:
Mucus membrane
Receptors for both epithelial cells of the mucus
membrane and motor neurons.
Evade the host
Immune system:
Intracellular parasites that invade neurons.
Tissue destruction: Attacks motor neurons:
Mode of Transmission:
Vehical: Drinking fecal contaminated water. Virus found in the fecal
material is stable for long periods of time.
Signs and Symptoms:
Initial symptoms include sore throat and nausea, headache, fever.
Majority of cases goes no further than this. However if viremia persist,
paralysis of motor nerves and death by respiratory failure.
In third world countries, infants get asymptomatic conditions
Secondary infections
Sulk vaccine was first vaccine to be grown in Cell culture. The sulk vacine
requires a series of injections and boosters.
Sabin vaccine is an attenuated vaccine. Made up of 3 strains of virus.
Taken orally. Type 3 strain revers 1/560,000 times.
