About the Journal

Impact Factor: 0.972*

Mycobacterial Diseases is a scientific journal deals with diseases caused by Mycobacterium species chiefly Tuberculosis, Leprosy and research on remedial methods for these diseases. Journal of Mycobacterial Diseases is one of the best Open Acces journals of Scholarly publishing.

Mycobacterial Diseases is an scholarly Open Access journal and aims to publish most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, etc. in all areas of the Tuberculosis and Leprosy and making them freely available worldwide.

This scholarly Open Access journal is using Editorial Manager System for quality peer review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking systems. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of Mycobacterial Diseases or outside experts; at least two independent reviewers approval followed by editor approval is required for acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system, hopefully to publication. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.To achieve high impact factor, best quality submissions are welcome.

Mycobacterial diseases

Mycobacterial diseases are the bacterial diseases, caused by the member of Actinobacteria family. These mycobacterial diseases includes tuberculosis, leprosy, Mycobacteria ulcer and Mycobacterium para tuberculosis. Symptoms of diseases are fever, weight loss and fatigue. Few mycobacterial diseases are treated with antibiotics drugs like rifampin, ethambutol and isoniazid.

Molecular bacteriology

Molecular bacteriology is the application and understanding the molecular, cellular level, environmental level of bacteria and maintenance of antimicrobial resistance. This is a study to understand the molecular epidemiology and genetic background of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria and research on antimicrobial and bacteria chemotherapeutics of bacteria.

Antimycobacterial therapy

Antimycobacterial is a therapy to treat mycobacterial infections. This therapy can treat different diseases caused by different mycobacteria like Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Mycobacterium leprae. This antimicrobial therapy includes different types of drugs to treat diseases. Some of the drugs include are capreomycin, viomycin and enviomycin.

Mycobacteria

Mycobacteria is a family of Actinobacteria, genus comprises more than 120 different species. They are acid-fast gram-positive bacilli, obligate aerobic, immobile and rich content of mycolic acids. These are divided into 3 main groups Mycobacterial tuberculosis complex, Non tuberculosis Mycobacteria and Mycobacterial leprae.

Mycobacterium leprosy

Mycobacterium leprosy is a type of bacterial diseases that results in skin diseases. The microorganism Mycobacterium leprae, is responsible for this disease. It is a rod shape bacteria. It tends to skin sores and nerve damage. Symptoms of diseases include lesions on the skin, numbness in the extremities, and muscle weakness.

Atypical mycobacteria

Atypical Mycobacteria is a species of mycobacteria that causes different infections in living beings. Atypical Mycobacteria causes diseases of different types like soft tissue disease, disseminated disease and pulmonary diseases etc. Some atypical mycobacteria includes Mycobacterium chelonae, Mycobacterium fortuitum, Mycobacterium abscessus and Mycobacterium kansasii.

Bacterial pathogenesis

The bacteria which cause infection in human are called bacterial pathogenesis. There are several bacterial pathogenic diseases. One among them is tuberculosis which is caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It includes other pathogens of bacteria such as Streptococcus and Pseudomonas. These pathogens and form of bacteria causes many foodborne illnesses and infections such as tetanus, typhoid fever and diphtheria.

Mycobacterial genetics

The study of genetic variation in Mycobacteria of host pathogens interactions, identification of gene role in virulence of the bacilli and recognizing the markers of tuberculosis strains and mycobacterial tuberculosis strains is the mycobacterial genetics. It opens way to study mycobacterial genome stability.

Mycobacterium bovis

Mycobacterium bovis is a causative agent of tuberculosis known as bovine TB. It is the causative agent of Bovine tuberculosis in a range of animal species and man. It is a slow growing aerobic bacteria which is similar to the pathology of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. In humans, it causes chronic debilitation, coughing, and further spread to other organs.

Journal-Mycobacterial Diseases is associated with our international conference "3rd International Conference on Bacteriology and Infectious Diseases (Bacteriology - 2015) to be held during August 4-6, 2015 in Valencia, Spain with a theme “Current innovations & Advancement against Bacterial Infection and Therapeutics”. The major sessions included Plant-Microbe Symbiosis & Pathology, Bacterial Pathogenesis, Virulence & Countermeasures, Industrial and Applied Bacteriology, Medical Microbiology - From Benchtop to Clinic and many other.

 

*Unofficial 2014 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2012 and 2013 with the number of times they are cited in 2014 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2012 and 2013, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2014 than, impact factor = Y/X
