GLOSSARY (summary)


allergy
Skin reaction (itching, pimples, swelling) or general discomfort occurring after contact with a particular substance, use of a medication, or ingestion of food. The main forms of allergy are eczema, urticaria, asthma, angioedema and allergic shock (anaphylactic shock). Food allergy can also result in digestive disorders.


immune deficiency
Inability of the organization's defense systems to perform their duties; it is due to decreased white blood cells or antibodies (immunoglobulins). The most common causes of immune deficiency are genetic abnormalities, cancer treatments (chemotherapy or radiotherapy) and AIDS.


vaccine
An injectable solution for immunizing the organism against a virus or bacterium.
There are several kinds of vaccines:
  • Live attenuated vaccines: the germ contained in the vaccine is alive but unable to cause the disease (BCG, measles, rubella, mumps, etc.).
  • Vaccines prepared from killed germs: the most immunizing parts of the virus or bacteria are used to prepare the vaccine (polio vaccines, hepatitis vaccines, etc.).
  • Vaccines containing neutralized (inactivated) toxins: in the case of tetanus, it is a toxin secreted by the germ that is responsible for the severity of the disease; the vaccine allows immunization against this toxin.


virus
A microscopic organism that penetrates the cells of the host, where it reproduces. Much smaller than bacteria, viruses are insensitive to antibiotics. They can sometimes be destroyed by antiviral substances.
