1.

Infection

The invasion of an organism's body tissues by disease-causing agents and their multiplication, as well as the reaction by the host to these organisms and/or toxins that the organisms produce. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
811352
Concept ID:
C3714514
Pathologic Function
2.

Immunoglobulin G

An immunoglobulin isotype (subclass) that characterizes secondary immune responses. This isotype is further broken down into several smaller subclasses (IgG1, IgG2a, IgG2b, IgG3 in the mouse; IgG1-4 in the human), and each subclass is differentially synthesized and secreted into the serum upon differential immune stimuli. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
9407
Concept ID:
C0020852
Amino Acid, Peptide, or Protein; Immunologic Factor; Pharmacologic Substance
3.

Lymphatic filariasis

A clinical disorder that is caused by obstruction of the lymphatic system years after filarial infection. It is characterized by painful and profound lymphedema, resulting in significant swelling (elephantiasis) of extremities and genitals. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
8583
Concept ID:
C0013884
Disease or Syndrome
4.

Disease due to superfamily Filarioidea

Infection by filarial worms. [from NCI]

Concept ID:
C0016085

Lymphatic filariasis

, and the most common cause of acquired lymphedema worldwide. LF is endemic to tropical and subtropical regions. The vast majority of infected patients are asymptomatic but it can also cause a variety of clinical manifestations, including limb lymphedema, genital anomalies (hydrocele, chylocele), elephantiasis in later stages of the disease (frequently in the lower extremities), and tropical pulmonary eosinophilia (nocturnal paroxysmal cough and wheezing, weight loss, low-grade fever, adenopathy, and pronounced blood eosinophilia). Renal involvement (hematuria, proteinuria, nephritic syndrome, glomerulonephritis), and mono-arthritis of the knee or ankle joint have also been reported. [from ORDO]

Concept ID:
C0162636
Disease or Syndrome
12.

Endemic disease

The constant presence of diseases or infectious agents within a given geographic area or population group. It may also refer to the usual prevalence of a given disease with such area or group. It includes holoendemic and hyperendemic diseases. A holoendemic disease is one for which a high prevalent level of infection begins early in life and affects most of the child population, leading to a state of equilibrium such that the adult population shows evidence of the disease much less commonly than do children (malaria in many communities is a holoendemic disease). A hyperendemic disease is one that is constantly present at a high incidence and/or prevalence rate and affects all groups equally. (Last, A Dictionary of Epidemiology, 3d ed, p53, 78, 80) [from MeSH]

Secernentea Infections

Infections with nematodes of the subclass SECERNENTEA. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
58143
Concept ID:
C0162625
Disease or Syndrome
14.

Disease caused by parasite

Infections or infestations with PARASITES. They are often contracted through contact with an intermediate vector, but may occur as the result of direct exposure. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:

Abnormality of the lymphatic system

An anomaly of the lymphatic system, a network of lymphatic vessels that carry a clear fluid called lymph unidirectionally towards either the right lymphatic duct or the thoracic duct, which in turn drain into the right and left subclavian veins respectively. [from HPO]
