 Synonyms & Historicals
Bacterial Vaccines .
Bacterial Vaccine .
Bacterin .
Vaccine, Bacterial .
Vaccines, Bacterial .
Suspensions of attenuated or killed bacteria administered for the prevention or treatment of infectious bacterial disease. .
Vaccines .
Suspensions of killed or attenuated microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa), antigenic proteins, synthetic constructs, or other bio-molecular derivatives, administered for the prevention, amelioration, or treatment of infectious and other diseases. .
/microbiology .
/bacteria .
/fungi .
/bacteriology .
/mycology .
/rickettsia .
Used with organs, animals, and higher plants and with diseases for microbiologic studies. For parasites, "parasitology" is used; for viruses, "virology" is used. .
Bacteria .
Eubacteria .
Gliding Bacteria .
Schizomycetes .
Spiral and Curved Bacteria .
Phototrophic Bacteria .
Budding and Appendaged Bacteria .
One of the three domains of life (the others being Eukarya and ARCHAEA), also called Eubacteria. They are unicellular prokaryotic microorganisms which generally possess rigid cell walls, multiply by cell division, and exhibit three principal forms: round or coccal, rodlike or bacillary, and spiral or spirochetal. Bacteria can be classified by their response to OXYGEN: aerobic, anaerobic, or facultatively anaerobic; by the mode by which they obtain their energy: chemotrophy (via chemical reaction) or PHOTOTROPHY (via light reaction); for chemotrophs by their source of chemical energy: CHEMOLITHOTROPHY (from inorganic compounds) or chemoorganotrophy (from organic compounds); and by their source for CARBON; NITROGEN; etc.; HETEROTROPHY (from organic sources) or AUTOTROPHY (from CARBON DIOXIDE). They can also be classified by whether or not they stain (based on the structure of their CELL WALLS) with CRYSTAL VIOLET dye: gram-negative or gram-positive. .
Vaccinia .
Vaccinias .
The cutaneous and occasional systemic reactions associated with vaccination using smallpox (variola) vaccine. .
Vaccination .
Active Immunization .
Active Immunizations .
Immunizations, Active .
Vaccinations .
Immunization, Active .
Administration of vaccines to stimulate the host's immune response. This includes any preparation intended for active immunological prophylaxis. .
