Lymphocytes are also known as white blood cells. They are disease fighting cells that can bear the major responsibility for carrying out the activities of the immune system. Elephantiasis is a rare disorder that prevents the function of the lymphatic system. This is a unremitting case of a parasitic disease caused by filariae. Elephantiasis is also known as lymphatic filariasis. This diseases caused by minute parasitical worms known as Wuchereria Bancroft, which are responsible for about ninety percent of
problems, brain tumors, and two or more skin tumors of various sizes. Eventually, the tumors grow so large that they can block vital organs from functioning and cause death. Treatment A single course of one antibiotic can successfully treat elephantiasis (filariasis)-a parasitic worm disease that is one of the most common causes of global disability, concludes a study published in this week's issue of The Lancet.

parasites which are deadly. Mosquitoes are responsible for more than 300 million cases of malaria each year, and causes between one and three million deaths (ScienceWorld, 2011). Mosquitoes can also carry dengue and yellow fevers, encephalitis, elephantiasis, and canine heartworm. With this said mosquitoes not only cause deaths within humans but other animals as well. Any animal that comes in contact with a mosquito; human or not, runs the risks of becoming infected and dyeing. This explains how there

CATINGUB The disease Lymphatic filariasis, commonly known as elephantiasis, is a neglected tropical disease. Infection occurs when filarial parasites are transmitted to humans through mosquitoes. When a mosquito with infective stage larvae bites a person, the parasites are deposited on the person's skin from where they
insect. In different countries, people attempt to stay away from insects due to the different diseases that they carry. Countries like India, Nigeria, Nepel, and Ethiopa have mosquitoes that carry the disease lymphatic filariasis. Also called elephantiasis, filariasis is a tropical disease that is acquired in childhood. The disease becomes known later in life when the patient has lots of edema in certain areas of the body. By the time the disease is known damages are done and permanent disability
discovering the HBV (Hepatitis B virus), Dr. Blumberg was also the first to do a survey of Malaria. It was here that his fascination of variations began to grow. Blumberg saw the people in Surinam’s reaction to the parasitic worm that started elephantiasis. It was his job to take some blood samples and to examine them carefully and created a theory: hemophiliac patients because their blood was uncontrolled and probably produced more than regular patients produced antibodies. Dr. Blumberg did a
because they consume blood from living vertebrates, including humans. Mosquitoes can act as a vector for many diseases causing viruses and parasites. Mosquitoes -borne diseases include yellow fever, dengue fever, malaria, lymphatic filariasis, elephantiasis, tularemia, and others. These harmful mosquitoes can be found in our place which has stagnant water, in garbage disposal, flower pots and discarded containers. We can control and resolve these problems by means of implementing a program that can
America, Central America, Mexico, Russia and much of Asia with millions of resulting deaths. At least 2 million people annually die of these diseases. Three diseases caused by three insects are: Anopheles mosquitoes-malaria Culex mosquitoes-Elephantiasis Aedes egypti mosquito-dengue fever Anopheles Malaria parasites are members of the genus Plasmodium (phylum Apicomplexa). In humans malaria is caused by P. falciparum, P. malariae, P. ovale, P. vivax and P. knowlesi. P. falciparum
