A review of microbes significant to human and animal diseases is followed by the principles which underpin the spread and establishment of infectious disease. Common and topical infectious diseases are presented in an organ system approach where the aetiology, epidemiology and pathophysiology of the infection is discussed. Treatment and the control of these conditions are considered. The immune system is presented in the context of infection and non-infection disease processes. This subject prepares students who wish to pursue study of clinical microbiology and immunobiology in 3rd year.
