Vaccinia

The cutaneous and occasional systemic reactions associated with vaccination using smallpox (variola) vaccine. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
52964
Concept ID:
C0042214
Disease or Syndrome
2.

Ectromelia

Gross hypo- or aplasia of one or more long bones of one or more limbs. The concept includes amelia, hemimelia, and phocomelia. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
3966
Concept ID:
C0013589
Congenital Abnormality
3.

Cowpox

A mild, eruptive skin disease of milk cows caused by COWPOX VIRUS, with lesions occurring principally on the udder and teats. Human infection may occur while milking an infected animal. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
3261
Concept ID:
C0010232
Disease or Syndrome
4.

Opportunistic infectious disease

An infection caused by an organism that does not normally cause disease. Opportunistic infections occur in people with weakened immune systems. [from NCI_NCI-GLOSS]

MedGen UID:
18177
Concept ID:
C0029118
Disease or Syndrome
5.

Molluscum contagiosum infection

A common, benign, usually self-limited viral infection of the skin and occasionally the conjunctivae by a poxvirus (MOLLUSCUM CONTAGIOSUM VIRUS). (Dorland, 27th ed) [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
10081
Concept ID:
C0026393
Disease or Syndrome
6.

Interferon Type II

The major interferon produced by mitogenically or antigenically stimulated LYMPHOCYTES. It is structurally different from TYPE I INTERFERON and its major activity is immunoregulation. It has been implicated in the expression of CLASS II HISTOCOMPATIBILITY ANTIGENS in cells that do not normally produce them, leading to AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
5846
Concept ID:
C0021745
Pharmacologic Substance
7.

Inflammatory Response

A part of innate immunity, the Inflammatory Response occurs when injured tissues induce release of vasodilatory, opsonizing, and chemotactic mediators that attract macrophages and leukocytes to phagocytize and destroy foreign substances; dilate local blood vessels increasing local blood flow; increase capillary permeability; produce edematous swelling; and induce pain. Plasma- and cell-derived inflammatory mediators include Prostaglandins, Leukotrines, Cytokines, Lymphokines, Monokines, PAF, Histamine, Bradykinin, Complement, and Interferons. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:

Concept ID:
C1155266
Pathologic Function
8.

human leukocyte interferon

A biological response modifier (a substance that can improve the body's natural response to infection and disease). Interferons interfere with the division of cancer cells and can slow tumor growth. There are several types of interferons, including interferon-alpha, -beta, and -gamma. These substances are normally produced by the body. They are also made in the laboratory for use in treating cancer and other diseases. [from NCI]

Concept ID:

Pharmacologic Substance
9.

Acute

Symptoms or signs that begin and worsen quickly; not chronic. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
61381
Concept ID:
C0205178
10.

Vaccines

Preparations containing substances with antigenic properties administered to activate the immune system, thereby inducing an immune response. Vaccines range from inactivated or attenuated microorganisms (bacteria and viruses), enhanced autologous tumor cells, tumor antigens or epitopes that are used to elicit host immune responses. Vaccines are used for the prevention, amelioration, or treatment of infectious diseases and cancer. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
52963
Concept ID:
C0042210
Pharmacologic Substance
11.

Interferon

Proteins secreted by vertebrate cells in response to a wide variety of inducers. They confer resistance against many different viruses, inhibit proliferation of normal and malignant cells, impede multiplication of intracellular parasites, enhance macrophage and granulocyte phagocytosis, augment natural killer cell activity, and show several other immunomodulatory functions. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
5847
Concept ID:
C0021747
Pharmacologic Substance
12.

AIDS

A disease caused by human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). People with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome are at an increased risk for developing certain cancers and for infections that usually occur only in individuals with a weak immune system. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
99
Concept ID:
C0001175
Disease or Syndrome
13.

Sirenomelia

MedGen UID:
799482
Concept ID:
CN203845
Disease or Syndrome
14.

Complete phocomelia of upper limb

MedGen UID:
539337
Concept ID:
C0265574
Congenital Abnormality
15.

Sirenomelia

A developmental defect in which the legs are fused together. [from HPO]

MedGen UID:
506367
Concept ID:
CN009328
Finding
16.

Phocomelia

Missing or malformed long bones of the extremities with the distal parts (such as hands and/or feet) connected to the variably shortened or even absent extremity, leading to a flipper-like appearance, as opposed to other forms of limb malformations were either the hole limb is missing (such as amelia), or the distal part of a limb is absent (peromelia). [from HPO]

MedGen UID:
506329
Concept ID:
CN008686
Finding
17.

Amelia

Congenital absence (aplasia) of one or more limbs. [from HPO]
