Synopsis:

Microbiology: Microorganisms, division. Non-cellular forms of infections - viruses. Procaryotes. Bacterial cell structure and function. Phylogenetic system of bacteria and archaea. Eucaryotes. Cell structure and function of eukaryotic microorganisms - fungi, protozoa. Metabolism and growth of microorganisms, life cycle of prokaryotic cells, growth curve. Influence of environmental factors on the growth of microorganisms - temperature, pH. Antimicrobials - antivirals, antibiotics and chemotherapeutics, mechanism of action, disinfection, sterilization. The microbiome of the human body. Human microbial diseases. Infectious diseases of the eye caused by microorganisms - viral, bacterial, fungal and caused by protozoa.

Immunology: Cells and organs of the immune system. Antigens. Development of the immune response. The main histocompatibility complex. T lymphocytes and cellular immunity. Cellular cytotoxicity. Cytokines. B lymphocytes and antibody production. Immunoglobulins. Defense functions of the immune system. Anti-infective immunity. Innate immunity. Allergic diseases. Nutrition and immunity, the effect of human microbiome on the immune system. Immunopathology. Immunodeficiency. Autoimmune diseases.
