Warning Last Seen Be Careful Of Pneumolysin- a protein that lyses the bacteria(releasing the internal contents)Pilli- contribute tocolonization andincrease large amountsof TNFAutolysin- a protein that lyses the bacteria (releasing the internal contents)Hydrogen peroxide- causes damageto the host cellsChloline binding protein- an adhesion that affects carbs on the cell surfaceand inhibit complementmediated opsonization of pneumococcal Who it affects and how Pneumococcal Meningitisaffects infants, elderly people,and people with immunesystem efficiencies. It spreads through sneezing and coughing.The bacteria causes a fever, cough, and difficulty breathing, If spread to the meninges (the covering of the brainand spinal cord)through the bloodstream,it will cause a fever, headache and inflammation of the meninges. The meninges are filled with a liquid, CSF, which holds the bacteria. The bacteria multiply and eventually will release toxins that affects the person. Reward If caught alive: Vaccine: PPSV23(Pneumovax).This will protect the person from26 strands ofPneumococcal Meningitis.If caught dead: Vaccine: PCV13(Prevnar 13). This will protect the person from13 strands of Pneumococcal Meningitis
