Incubation Period For Various Parasites
Average 2 days: The typical incubation period for influenza is 14 days (average: 2 days). Adults shed influenza virus from the day before symptoms begin through 510 days after illness onset. However, the amount of virus shed, and presumably infectivity, decreases rapidly by 35 days after onset in an experimental human infection model. ...Read more
...: The incubation period for the flu is between 1-4 days. This means that people can pass along the flu to others before they even now they are sick, as well spread the flu to others for 5-7 days after becoming sick. Washing your hands often and getting the flu vaccine are ways you can protect yourself from the flu. ...Read more
No: Incubation period refers to the duration after which a person is transmitted a pathogen (i.e. Virus or bacteria) until the infection is apparent. Stevens-johnson syndrome (sjs) is not an infection and therefore there is no incubation period. Very rarely sjs can result from an individuals 'reaction' to an infection. More often sjs may result from antibiotics used to treat infections. ...Read more

Incubation period: time when the person is first exposed to the virus to the time when the diesase start to manifest itself
window period: time it takes for the test used to diagnose the disease can reliably detect the disease; in HIV the elisa test is used to detect an antibody against the virus, it takes around 2-6 weeks for the immnune system to produce it, during this period elisa is (-). ...Read more
Is syphilis related to gullain barre syndrome? What is the incubation period of syphilis on average?
Syphilis: No. Syphilis is a sexually transmitted disease cause by a bacterium. The neurological symptoms of syphilis take 10-20 years to develop. Guillain-Barré syndrome is an autoimmune disease with rapid ascending weakness in the legs and arms that can cause loss of respiratory function. Cerebrospinal fluid analysis will distinguish between the two diseases. Start using condoms to avoid syphilis. ...Read more

How do you calculate the incubation period of CP I saw my friend on Mon and then again on Thur and she had shingles is't from last day or the for firs?
7 to 21 days: Most of us have already had varicella (chicken pox) or been immunized, so we are immune. "Last day or first" is not an issue. If you were in the same room, especially face- to -face, for over 15 minutes you may have sustained significant exposure. If your friend was treated (acyclovir, famcyclovir, valacyclovir) your risk is very low. If your friend was already 2 or 3 weeks into it your risk is l ...Read more
Very wide range: "Incubation period" can mean time to symptoms or time until transmissible to partners. Many STDs never cause symptoms, especially in women. When symptoms occur, typical times are gonorrhea 3-5 days; chlamydia 1-2 weeks; herpes 3-10 days; syphilis 3-6 weeks; HIV 10-20 days; HPV 1-2 mo. to transmit, 6 mo. to 2 years for warts or abnormal pap smear. If at risk, get tested; don't wait for symptoms. ...Read more
This is probably the wrong question. There is no 'incubation' period. If you get infected with HIV you are infected with HIV and must be treated to prevent the immune destruction that leads to aids.
Now, from exposure to full on infection is usually a fourteen to twenty-one day process. The new HIV viral tests can be 100% accurate at day 21 or later. ...Read more
