Microorganisms which gets attached to the surface and develops is known as biofilm. Biofilm structure generally comprises of microbial cells and extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) matrix. Because of the presence of EPS in biofilm, it makes the microbial population resistance against the antibiotic or other drugs. Biofilms have a defined architecture and provides optimal environment for the exchange of generic material between the cells. Biofilm plays major role in certain infectious diseases and thus has greater importance for the public health.

We all heard about the terms, yeast, molds and fungi. these are the eukaryotic microorganisms and with them this study is called Mycology. During classification, Fungi have been given their own separate kingdom. Fungi are multi-faceted which are distributed entire the world, it can also grow in a large variety of habitats and can survive even the most critical conditions- which include the intense temperatures both cold & super-hot. Algae study is called as Phycology. These are the primary producers in the aquatic ecosystem, are extremely essential in the growth of microorganisms in the water eco-systems. In earlier, they were true plants, but after serious studies, it is found to be pseudo-plants, hence given a separate classification.  In most cases, algae are single-celled and only few species are multicellular.

According to microbiologists the nematodes parasites are "the most numerous animals on Earth" with about 80,000 prevailing and recognized species which are only 40% of all the nematodes on earth. Generally, It Is seen in the water bodies- oceans and freshwater and sometimes also in the loamy soils. Basically, they are found as internal parasites in the digestive system, generally intestines in humans and animals. thread worms are the most prevalent and commonly seen nematodes with small parasites, Either at the anterior end or at the posterior end the mouths of these nematodes are seen, by the gut being a non-muscular straight tube near the anus.  Protozoology, which is the study of protozoans, With Antonie von Leeuwenhoek in his first microscope the single-celled eukaryotic organisms, the same organisms which were first studied and observed

Cancer Immunology is a branch of immunology and it studies interactions between the immune system and cancer cells. These cancer cells, through subtle alterations, become immortal malignant cells but are often not changed enough to elicit an immune reaction. Understanding how the immune system works—or does not work—against cancer is a primary focus of Cancer Immunology investigators.  Immune system can promote the elimination of tumors, but often immune responses are modulated or suppressed by the tumor microenvironment. The Tumor microenvironment is an important aspect of cancer biology that contributes to tumor initiation, tumor progression and responses to therapy. Cells and molecules of the immune system are a fundamental component of the tumor microenvironment.

The response to pathogens is composed by the complex interactions and activities of the enormous number of diverse cell types involved in the immune response. The innate immune response is the first line of defense and occurs soon after pathogen exposure. It is carried out by phagocytic cells such as neutrophils and macrophages, cytotoxic natural killer (NK) cells, and granulocytes. Humoral Immunology is a branch of immunology that deals with the study of immunity that is mediated by macro molecules found in the extracellular fluids.

Autoimmunity is the mode of immune response of an organism against its own cells and tissues. Any disease that results from such an aberrant immune response is termed as an autoimmune disease. Some examples include celiac disease, Type 1 Diabetes mellitus, lupus, Sjogren’s syndrome, graves’ disease, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, Addison’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, polymyositis, and dermatomyositis and inflammation is a signal mediated response to cellular insult by infectious agents, toxins, and physical stress. While acute inflammation is important to the immune response, chronic inappropriate inflammation can cause tissue autoimmunity, neurodegenerative cardiovascular diseases.

Transplantation refers to transfer of living cells, tissues and organs from one part of the body to another from one individual to another. Transplantation mainly consists of three types: (1) organ or tissue transplantation; (2) Anatomical site of origin of transplant & site of its placement i.e., orthotropic (normal sites), heterotopic (abnormal sites); (3) Vital grafts and Structural grafts. The roles of the different components of the immune system involved in the tolerance or rejection of grafts and in graft-versus-host disease have been clarified. These elements consist of counteract ant, ant generative cells, helper and cytotoxic T cell subsets, immune cell surface molecules, signaling mechanisms and cytokines that they release.

  Food Allergies are increasing in prevalence at a higher rate than can be explained by genetic factors, suggesting a role for yet unidentified environmental factors. The intestinal epithelium forms the interface between the external environment and the mucosal immune system, and emerging data suggest that the interaction between intestinal epithelial cells and mucosal dendritic cells is of importance in determining the outcome of immune responses to dietary antigens. Exposure to food allergens through non-oral routes, through the skin, is increasingly recognized as a potentially crucial factor in the increasing rate of food allergy. There are many open questions on the role of environmental factors, such as dietary factors and microbiota, in the development of food allergy, but data suggest that both have an important modulatory effect on the mucosal immune system.

Vaccine is a product that produces immunity against a disease. Vaccines can prevent diseases and are very effective. Vaccine mobilizes the host immune system to prevent viral infection.it can break the chain of transmission. Vaccines provide active and passive immunity. Vaccines are made of the entire disease-causing microorganisms or some of its components. Smallpox vaccine is the first success vaccine. Immuno therapy is the treatment that uses certain parts of a person’s immune system to fight diseases such as cancer.

  Antibiotics are the drug used to treat bacterial infections. Antibiotics have no effect on viral infections. Originally, an antibiotic was a substance produced by one microorganism that selectively inhibits the growth of another. Synthetic antibiotics, usually chemically related to natural antibiotics, have since been produced that accomplish comparable tasks. Several antibiotics are also effective against fungi and protozoans, and some are toxic to humans and animals, even when given in therapeutic dosage. Antibiotic must reach the binding site of the microbe to interfere with the life cycle & must occupy “sufficient” number of active sites.
