refers to the spread of disease, such as STI's or HIV
The spread of disease from person to person.
Passing an infection or disease from one person to another.
The spread of something from one person to another.
the spread or transfer, as of a disease, from one individual to another
Any mechanism through which an infectious agent, such as a virus, is spread from a reservoir or source to a human.
The device that transmits motion of the wind motor and drives the paper roll. Wind motors do not reverse the direction of rotation to rewind the paper roll; that job falls to the transmission. (See The Transmission - click here) click here)
passing of infection from person to person; ~ rate: frequency of transmission, measured as the number of infections per person per unit of time (e.g. the number of infected mosquito bites per person-month)
Movement of disease-causing microbes from one animal or person to another. The transmission can be direct, as when one person catches a cold after being sneezed on by someone carrying the cold viruses, or indirect, as when someone drinks contaminated water or is bitten by a mosquito carrying a parasite or virus.
The transfer of an infectious agent (usually a virus) from one plant to another. The dissemination of pathogens and the inoculation of suscepts.
When an infection is passed from one person to another.
Infectious mosquitoes carry the West Nile Virus in their salivary glands and only rarely feed on the "incidental-hosts" people, horses and other mammals.
As related to HIV infection: HIV is passed from an infected person to the sexual or needle-sharing partner(s) through unprotected anal, vaginal or oral sex and through sharing contaminated needles and "works" (those items used for setting up and injecting drugs like heroin and cocaine). It is possible to pass HIV during pregnancy and childbirth and through breastfeeding. HIV transmission through blood transfusion is rare in developed countries with careful screening of blood products. HIV cannot be transmitted by donating blood.
communication by means of transmitted signals
an object describing the data transmitted over RadioAir over some period of time
The passage or transfer of a disease or infection from one person to another.
spread of bacteria or virus from one person to another, for example, through vaginal, anal, or oral sex
HIV is spread most commonly by sexual contact with an infected partner. The virus can enter the body through the mucosal lining of the vagina, vulva, penis, rectum or, rarely, the mouth during oral sex. The likelihood of transmission increases when these linings are damaged by ulcers or inflammation as a result of other sexually transmitted diseases. HIV also is spread through contact with infected blood, most often by the sharing of drug needles or syringes contaminated with minute quantities of blood containing the virus. Children can contract HIV from their infected mothers either during pregnancy or birth, or postnatally, through breast-feeding. In developed countries, HIV is now only rarely transmitted by transfusion of blood or blood products because of screening measures.
the spread of an organism, such as M. tuberculosis, from one person to another; depends on the contagiousness of the patient, the type of environment, and the length of exposure
The process by which the virus is passed from one individual to another. HIV is transmitted through body fluids, particularly blood, semen, vaginal secretions and breast milk. The most common forms of transmission are through unprotected sexual intercourse, by sharing needles when injecting drugs and from mother to child when breastfeeding. Click here to return to list
how a virus or bacteria goes from one person to the next.
The way a disease is transferred or spread from one person to another.
refers to the act of passing an infection or a trait to someone else Urethra: refers to the tube from the bladder where urine flows out of the body in both males and females; sexually transmitted diseases like gonorrhea or chlamydia may infect this tube
The spread of an infectious agent from one person to another. The likelihood of transmission is directly related to the duration and intensity of exposure to M.tuberculosis (see Exposure) and the area is examined 48-72 hours after the infection. A reaction is measured according to the size of the induration. The classification of a reaction as positive or negative depends on the patient's medical history and various risk factors (see Mantoux test, PPD test).
The movement and infection of disease agents, for example thrips transmit tospoviruses and cause new infections throughout a greenhouse crop.
The way or method by which a disease can be spread.
The passing of HIV through blood, semen, vaginal secretions or breast milk from an infected individual to another person. These four are the only body fluids known to transmit HIV (although a small amount of HIV might be in saliva, it is not thought to transmit HIV).
The spread of disease from one person or animal to another.
In the context of HIV disease, HIV is spread most commonly by sexual contact with an infected partner. The virus can enter the body through the mucosal lining of the vagina, vulva, penis, rectum, or, rarely, the mouth during sex. The likelihood of transmission is increased by factors that may damage these linings, especially other sexually transmitted diseases that cause ulcers or inflammation. HIV also is spread through contact with infected blood, most often by the sharing of drug needles or syringes contaminated with minute quantities of blood containing the virus. Children can contract HIV from their infected mothers either during pregnancy or birth, or postnatally through breast-feeding. In developed countries, HIV is now rarely transmitted by transfusion of blood or blood products because of screening measures.
The amount of radiation of different wavelengths that a filter, lens, or film will transmit or allow to pass through without change.
In medicine, transmission is the passing of a disease from an infected individual or group to a previously uninfected individual or group.
