Mary Mallon (September 23, 1869--November 11, 1938), better known as Typhoid Mary, was the first person in the United States identified as an asymptomatic carrier
of the pathogen associated with typhoid fever.
However, once a mutation develops, it can be propagated when asymptomatic carrier
females or mildly affected males are bred.
5) The infection can be acute or chronic with a wide spectrum of clinical presentations ranging from asymptomatic carrier
state to acute self-limiting infection or fulminant hepatic failure, chronic hepatitis with progression to cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
In addition, continuous exposures to Plasmodium parasites lead to the development of partial immunity for protection against further complication and, consequently, the creation of asymptomatic carrier
It is likely she had previously travelled to an endemic region and had developed an asymptomatic carrier
The virus is spread among pigs by aerosols, direct and indirect contact and asymptomatic carrier

But, a report by environmental officers, to be presented to County Durham and Darlington Acute Hospitals NHS Trust board tomorrow, said there was no reason to believe he was the source of the outbreak on November 16 and could either have been an asymptomatic carrier
or could have been infected by eating at the restaurant.
HIV is the retrovirus that causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), which has a wide range of clinical manifestations varying from asymptomatic carrier
states to severely debilitating and fatal disorders.
Alternatively, as former drug czar William Bennett has argued, the moderate drug user is an asymptomatic carrier
- a Typhoid Mary - spreading misery to others by setting a bad example, even though he feels fine.
Inconsistent to asymptomatic carrier
with relatively large fragment size from 21 kb to 27 kb in previous study, [sup] we detected more various fragment size from 13 kb to 30 kb in nonpenetrant carriers.
