Epidemiology and emerging diseases

Epidemiology is the study and analysis of the distribution and determinants of health and disease conditions in defined populations. Epidemiological study include disease causation, transmission, outbreak investigation, disease surveillance, forensic epidemiology, Occupational epidemiology, screening, biomonitoring, and comparisons of treatment effects such as in clinical trials. and Applied epidemiology is the practice of using epidemiological methods to protect or improve the health of a population. Emerging diseases are the infectious disease whose frequency has increased in the previous 20 years and could increase sooner rather than later. Emerging infectious disease are caused by recently identified species or strains (e.g. Extreme intense respiratory disorder) that may have advanced from a known contamination (e.g. flu) or spread to another population (e.g. West Nile fever) . Many organisms live in our bodies which are ordinarily harmless, however under specific conditions, a few living beings may cause infection. Some bacterial infections can be passed from individual to individual called ecologic change. Neisseria is a vast class of microorganisms that colonize the mucosal surfaces of many animals. Of the 11 species that colonize people, just two are pathogens, N. meningitis and N. gonorrhea.
