About the Journal

NLM ID: 101710380

Infectious Diseases are for the most part brought about by infections, microbes, growths and protozoan parasites. Huge numbers of the irresistible infections are infectious and transmissible.They are pandemic and life debilitating if untreated. Legitimate conclusion and treatment ought to be embraced for counteractive action and transmission of diseases. As of now research is going on new pharmaceuticals and new target proteins for viable treatment.

Journal of Infectious Diseases and Medicine focuses on parasitic, bacterial, viral and fungal infections. Articles on infectious diseases, new approaches for treatment of infectious diseases, etiology, epidemiology, diagnostic tests of infectious diseases, pathophysiology. Clinical trials, immunological role of host in response to pathogen in infected organism, preventive measures and case reports are also welcome. This scientific journal is using Editorial Manager System for maintaining quality in peer review process. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of Journal of Clinical and Experimental Pathology or by outside experts. Minimum two independent reviewer’s approval followed by editor approval is mandatory for acceptance of any manuscript.

Immunotherapy

Immunotherapy is the treatment of disease by inducing, enhancing, or suppressing an immune response. Immunotherapy is used to treat allergies. While allergy treatments (such as antihistamines or corticosteroids) treat allergic symptoms, immunotherapy can reduce sensitivity to allergens, lessening its severity. Antimicrobial immunotherapy, which includes vaccination, involves activating the immune system to respond to an infectious agent.

Vaccines

A vaccine is a biological preparation that provides active acquired immunity to a particular disease. A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe, its toxins or one of its surface proteins. Administration of vaccines is called vaccination.Vaccination is the most effective method of preventing infectious diseases; widespread immunity due to vaccination is largely responsible for the worldwide eradication of smallpox and the restriction of diseases such as polio, measles, and tetanus from much of the world.

Infectious Medicine

Infectious Disease, also known as infectious diseases, infectious medicine, infectious disease medicine or infectiology, is a medical specialty dealing with the diagnosis, control and treatment of infections. An infectious disease (ID) specialist's practice may consist largely of managing nosocomial (hospital-acquired) infections, or it may be out-patient based. Infectious Diseases specialists employ a variety of antimicrobial agents to help treat infections. The type of agent used depends on the organism that is causing the infection. Antibiotics are used to treat bacterial infections; antiviral agents treat viral infections ; and antifungal agents treat fungal infections.

Antivirals

Antiviral drugs are a class of medication used specifically for treating viral infections. Like antibiotics, specific antivirals are used for specific viruses. They are relatively harmless to the host and therefore can be used to treat infections. They should be distinguished from viricides, which actively deactivate virus particles outside the body. Many antiviral drugs are designed to treat infections by retroviruses, mostly HIV. Important antiretroviral drugs include the class of protease inhibitors. Herpes viruses, best known for causing cold sores and genital herpes, are usually treated with the nucleoside analogue acyclovir. Viral hepatitis is caused by five unrelated hepatotropic viruses (A-E) and can be treated with antiviral drugs depending on the type of infection. influenza A and B viruses have become resistant to neuraminidase inhibitors such as oseltamivir and the search for new substances is on.

Antimicrobials

Antimicrobial is an agent that kills microorganisms or stops their growth. Antimicrobial medicines can be grouped according to the microorganisms they act primarily against. Antimicrobial agents are disinfectants ("nonselective antimicrobials" such as bleach), which kill a wide range of microbes on non-living surfaces to prevent the spread of illness, antiseptics (which are applied to living tissue and help reduce infection during surgery), and antibiotics (which destroy microorganisms within the body).

HIV

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is an enveloped virus, belonging to the viral family Retroviridae. The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a lentivirus (a subgroup of retrovirus) that causes HIV infection and over time acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). HIV infection occurs by transfer of blood, pre-ejaculate, semen, vaginal fluids, or breast milk. Within these bodily fluids, HIV is present as both free virus particles and virus within infected immune cells.

Ebola Virus Disease

Ebola virus disease (EVD), also known as Ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF) or simply Ebola, is a viral hemorrhagic fever of humans and other primates caused by ebolaviruses. The virus spreads by direct contact with body fluids, such as blood, of an infected human or other animals.Control of outbreaks requires coordinated medical services, alongside a certain level of community engagement. The medical services include rapid detection of cases of disease, contact tracing of those who have come into contact with infected individuals, quick access to laboratory services, proper healthcare for those who are infected, and proper disposal of the dead through cremation or burial.

Infection Control

Infection control addresses factors related to the spread of infections within the healthcare setting (whether patient-to-patient, from patients to staff and from staff to patients, or among-staff), including prevention (via hand hygiene/hand washing, cleaning/disinfection/sterilization, vaccination, surveillance), monitoring/investigation of demonstrated or suspected spread of infection within a particular health-care setting (surveillance and outbreak investigation), and management (interruption of outbreaks). It is on this basis that the common title being adopted within health care is "infection prevention and control."

Airborne Diseases

Airborne disease is any disease that caused by pathogens and transmitted through the air. The pathogens transmitted may be any kind of microbe, and may spread in aerosols, dust or liquids.The aerosols might generate from sources of infection such as the bodily secretions of an infected animal or person, or biological wastes such as accumulate in lofts, caves, garbage etc. Airborne pathogens or allergens often cause inflammation in nose, throat, sinuses and lungs. Inhalation of these pathogens that affect a person's respiratory system or even the rest of the body. Airborne diseases can also affect non-humans. Airborne disease caused by exposure to a source: an infected patient or animal, by being transferred from the infected person or animal’s mouth, nose, cut, or needle puncture. Environmental factors influence the efficacy of airborne disease transmission; the most evident environmental conditions are temperature and relative humidity.

Seasonal Influenza

Influenza is a viral disease that influences predominantly the nose, throat, bronchi and, once in a while, lungs. Contamination for the most part goes on for around a week, and is portrayed by sudden onset of high fever, hurting muscles, migraine and extreme disquietude, non-profitable hack, sore throat and rhinitis. The infection is transmitted effectively from individual to individual by means of bdroplets and little particles delivered when contaminated individuals cough. Infleunza tends to spread quickly in occasional pandemics.

Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is a virus that infects the liver. Most adults who get it have it for a short time and then get better. This is called acute hepatitis B. Sometimes the virus causes a long-term infection, called chronic hepatitis B.

Over time, it can damage your liver. Babies and young children infected with the virus are more likely to get chronic Hepatitis B. Hepatitis has a broad spectrum of presentations that range from a complete lack of symptoms to severe liver failure. The acute form of hepatitis, generally caused by viral infection, is characterized by constitutional symptoms that are typically self-limiting. Chronic hepatitis presents similarly, but can manifest signs and symptoms specific to liver dysfunction with long-standing inflammation and damage to the organ.

Rotavirus

Rotavirus is an infection that causes looseness of the bowels, for the most part in infants and young children. The looseness of the bowels can be serious, and lead to lack of hydration. Retching and fever are likewise normal in children with rotavirus. Rotavirus is the most widely recognized reason for serious regurgitating and looseness of the bowels among newborn children and young children. It is a class of twofold stranded RNA infection in the family Reoviridae. Almost every young children on the planet has been contaminated with rotavirus in any event once by the age of five. Insusceptibility creates with every disease, so consequent contaminations are less extreme; grown-ups are once in a while influenced. There are eight types of this infection, alluded to as A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H. Rotavirus A, the most well-known species, causes more than 90% of rotavirus contaminations in people.

Encephalitis

Encephalitis can cause flu-like symptoms, such as a fever or severe headache. It can also cause confused thinking, seizures, or problems with senses or movement. However, many cases of encephalitis result in only mild flu-like symptoms or even no symptoms. Severe cases of encephalitis, while relatively rare, can be life-threatening. Because the course of any single case of encephalitis can be unpredictable, it's important to get a timely diagnosis and treatment.

Diphtheria

Diphtheria is an infection caused by the bacterium Corynebacterium diphtheriae. Signs and symptoms may vary from mild to severe. They usually start two to five days after exposure. Symptoms often come on fairly gradually beginning with a sore throat and fever. In severe cases a grey or white patch develops in the throat. This can block the airway and create a barking cough as in croup. The neck may swell in part due to large lymph nodes. A form of diphtheria that involves the skin, eyes, or genitals also exist.

Sinusitis

Sinusitis is an inflammation, or swelling, of the tissue lining the sinuses. Normally, sinuses are filled with air, but when sinuses become blocked and filled with fluid, germs (bacteria, viruses, and fungi) can grow and cause an infection.
