Disease Research Short Paper [pic]Disease Topic : elephant disease. Etiology it is caused by parasitic worms invading the body's lymphatic system - the network of vessels carrying infection-fighting cells. The worm is spread by mosquitoes, who pass it on when they take blood from humans. The bacteria-containing worms lodge in the lymphatic system, producing millions of minute larvae which spread throughout the bloodstream. It is unclear whether the swelling, or lymphoedema, that occurs results from the obstruction of the lymphatic vessels or from the response of the body's immune system to the worms and the bacteria within them.
