STD WEBQUEST
-a way of finding out beforehand
INTRODUCTION
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), as the term
implies, are diseases transmitted through sexual
activities. Although most of these diseases are readily
preventable, each year more than 12 million cases are
reported in the United States. Because the infections
often do not cause any symptoms, many more cases go
undetected and untreated.
IMMUNULOGY
STDs are transmitted by exchange of body fluids
or by direct contact with the infected area. It is
also believed that most sexually transmitted
diseases facilitate the transmission of HIV
infection. (A review of the introduction to
Immunology might be helpful.)
