How does protozoa cause diseases?
Protozoa variants, such as amoebiasis cause diseases by secreting enzymes which absorbed by the tissue of the host.
A pathogen is an agent that can cause diseases. Protozoa are microscopic, motile, eukaryotic organisms, which include organisms such as amoebas. They mainly live in water, but can also be found in soil. Examples of protozoa that can cause disease, and so are "pathogenic protozoa" are Cryptosporidium which can cause Crytosporidiosis, and Giardia lamblia which can cause Giardiasis. Plasmodium is another example of pathogenic protozoa, as Plasmodium vivax is the main cause of Malaria.
it is an immune response that your body uses to try kill the protozoa that causes malaria with excess heat. this is also why you get a fever with other types of infectious diseases, such as flu, strep throat, etc. protozoa cause the infectious diseases called malaria and are carried in certain types of female mosquitoes. when the mosquito bites, the protozoa are spread.
