Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome is a serious secondary immunodeficiency disorder caused by the retrovirus, human immunodeficiency virus. Both diseases are characterized by the continuous destruction of T-cell with subsequent effects on B-cell because of the pivotal role of the CD4+helper T cells in immune reactions. Immunodeficiency makes the patient prone to infections, unusual cancers, and other some other abnormalities as well. Transmission may occur through contact with infected blood or body fluids and is associated with identifiable high-risk behaviors.

Hepatitis is found to be distributed as a large inflammation of the liver that results in degeneration and necrosis of liver cells. Inflammation of the liver can be due to bacterial invasion, injury by physical or toxic chemical agents, viral infections i.e., hepatitis A, B, C, D, E, G, or autoimmune response. Although most hepatitis is self-limiting, approximately 20% of acute hepatitis B and 50% of hepatitis C cases progress to a chronic state or cirrhosis and can be fatal.

It is a gradually developing and irreversible, degenerative, fatal disease. It is a brain disorder that affects a person’s ability to carry out daily activities. It generally begins after age 60 and the risk goes up as one gets older. Pathologic consequences generally include the loss of neurons in multiple areas within the brain, the presence of plaques composed of neurites, astrocytes, and glial cells that surround an amyloid center. The enzyme choline acetyltransferase, has the least action with Alzheimer’s patients, which in turn results in impaired conduction of impulses between the nerve cells. So far, no treatment can stop the progression of the disease. However, some drugs may help in keeping symptoms from getting worse for a limited time.

It is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder caused by a mutation in the gene for the protein cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator present in the mucus-secreting cells of the body, primarily affecting the respiratory, reproductive, and gastrointestinal tracts. The hallmark manifestation of cystic fibrosis is chronic, progressive lung disease, resulting from secretion of dehydrated mucus with airway obstruction, and malnutrition from pancreatic insufficiency. The sweat glands and reproductive glands are also affected, almost all males with cystic fibrosis are sterile because of absence or impairment of vas deferens, whereas females have reduced fertility.

It is a chronic inflammatory lung disease, causes airway hyperresponsiveness, mucus production, and mucosal edema resulting in reversible airflow obstruction. Allergens, air pollutants, cold weather, physical exertion, strong odors, and medications are common factors for asthma. Status asthmaticus is the most severe and persistent asthma that does not respond to the usual treatment, attacks can occur with little or no warning and can progress rapidly to asphyxiation.
