Microbial Diseases and Epidemiology

Microbial diseases are sicknesses or ailments or infections that are caused in animals and humans making damages to the individual’s vital functions or systems by the introduction of one of four different types of microbes. Microbes generally enter the body through the respiratory tract (mouth and nose), gastrointestinal tract (mouth oral cavity), urogenital tract, breaks in the skin surface.The microbial diseases are caused by virus, bacteria, fungi and protozoa.

Epidemiology leads to the identification of transmission, pathogenesis, and ultimately preventive factors in human diseases. Study of clinical aspects and ecological aspects of a given diseases are important for public health measures to control the diseases to be effective. A unique feature of Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases is the strong laboratory component within an epidemiology department. Areas of excellence include HIV/AIDS, vector biology, parasitology, molecular epidemiology, immunology, and the modeling of infectious diseases.


Coral bleaching and other  microbial diseases of corals have increased dramatically during the last few decades.  Due to these diseases are highly correlated with increased sea-water temperature, one of the consequences of global warming will probably be mass destruction of coral reefs. The causative agent(s)  of these diseases are bleaching of Oculina patagonica by Vibrio shiloi; black band disease by a microbial consortium; sea-fan disease (aspergillosis) by Aspergillus sydowii; and coral white plague possibly by Sphingomonas sp. The recently developed Vibrio coralyticus is the aetiological agent for bleaching the coral Pocillopora damicornis in the Red Sea., the major effect of increasing temperature is the expression of virulence genes by the pathogen.
