Scolex (head) of a pork tapeworm, Taenia solium Featured 10 Sep 2002 Print

Scolex (head) of a pork tapeworm, Taenia solium

Tapeworm head. Light micrograph of the scolex (head) of the adult pork tapeworm, Taenia solium. At top is a rosette of hooks; at lower left and right are rounded suckers. The hooks and suckers are the means by which the tapeworm attaches itself to the intestinal walls of its host. Humans are the main host of this parasite, which infects some 4 million people worldwide. Tapeworms have no digestive systems of their own but absorb directly through their skin the food ingested and broken down by the host. Adult tapeworms may grow 5-10 metres in length. They may cause diarrhoea, weight loss, abdominal discomfort. Treatment is with ant- helmintic drugs. Magnification: x32 at 6x6cm size

Computer graphic of section through human kidney

Kidney. Computer graphic of a section through a whole human kidney. At upper left is the renal artery and vein which supply blood to, and drain blood from the kidney. The artery forms a network of capillaries in the cortex of the kidney, ending in small tight knots called glomeruli (not seen). Glomeruli are blood filtering units from which excess water and metabolic wastes pass from the blood to nephrons, long tubules seen in the outer kidney. Nephrons filter these waste products into urine. The urine then drains into collecting ducts of each nephron, and finally into the ureter (at lower left). The ureter is a tube which passes urine into the bladder

Neisseria meningitidis bacteria

Neisseria meningitidis. Coloured Transmission Electron Micrograph (TEM) of a section through the bacteria Neisseria meningitidis. They are an agent which cause bacterial meningitis. These non- motile Gram- negative coccus (spherical) bacteria occur as two cells (orange) in a capsule (yellow). A number of such two- celled diplococci are seen. Neisseria meningitidis is an obligate human parasite. It causes meningococcal (cerebrospinal) meningitis, the inflammation of connective tissue membranes lining the brain and spinal cord. Symptoms include headache, fever, vomiting, delirium, even death. Treatment with antibiotics. Magnification: x20, 000 at 6x4.5cm size
