Questions:

1. Give a brief overview of the disease including signs and symptoms. Who is typically affected by this infection?(Children? Immunocompromised patients?)? What is the pathogens' portal of entry and exit?

2.  How would the innate immune system react to this pathogen? Which components would react?

3.  Would this pathogen primarily stimulate cell-mediated immunity or antibody-mediated immunity (T cells or B cells?) Why?

4.  All of the organisms listed above have the ability to evade the host immune system, at least temporarily. Review Table 1.1 for the pathogens' strategies used to avoid the host's immune system. Why is this particular strategy helpful to the pathogen? How would this impact the pathogens' ability to cause infection? How would the immune system compensate?
