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.
An oncovirus is a virus that can cause cancer. This term originated from studies of acutely transforming retroviruses in the 1950–60s, often called oncornaviruses to denote their RNA virus origin. It now refers to any virus with a DNA or RNA genome causing cancer and is synonymous with "tumor virus" or "cancer virus". The vast majority of human and animal viruses do not cause cancer, probably because of longstanding co-evolution between the virus and its host.
Infectious diseases of the nervous system are among the most common forms of neurological disorders, their percentage in the structure of general pathology of the nervous system is about 40%. In recent years capabilities of the diagnostics of neuroinfections have greatly improved. There are acute (meningitis, encephalitis), subacute and chronic lingering (arachnoiditis, arahnoentsefality) infections of the central nervous system. According to the etiological factor (cause illness) we distinguish viral, bacterial, fungal, and protozoal (eg Toxoplasmosis) brain damage. All acute infections of the central nervous system (meningitis, encephalitis) are urgent and the sick must be immediately taken to hospital. That’s why if a patient has a set of disturbing symptoms such as suddenly emerged fever, headache, vomiting, photophobia, seizures, and especially if the day before he suffered from severe cold or other infections, this is a reason to consult a doctor immediately or to call the team of "first aid ". In the hospital, the patient usually undergoes lumbar puncture so that doctors could study the CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) for inflammatory changes and determination of viral and bacterial agents, and MRI of the brain. From the results of the study a doctor determines the tactic of treatment of the patient. The chronic lingering neuroinfection flows most often in the form of arachnoiditis or arahnoentsefalita, and often has a viral etiology. They manifest themselves in persistent headache, subfebrile temperature, severe sweating and general weakness, chronic fatigue, double vision, unsteadiness when walking, nausea and vomiting in the morning. Infection of the central nervous system is necessarily confirmed by the occurrence on MRI detection of inflammatory changes in the brain or the membranes, signs of intracranial hypertension in the fundus, as well as specific immunological parameters of blood. A very important is the identification of the causative agent of infectious diseases of the brain. For this purpose, the study of blood content of immunoglobulins (antibodies) to the main pathogens neuroinfections is applied: virus of herpes simplex of types 1 and 2, cytomegalovirus, varicella zoster, Epstein-Barr virus, toxoplasma, and so on. (So-called TORCH infections group). Due to the development and introduction into clinical practice of powerful antiviral and antibacterial drugs and immunoglobulins the quality of care of patients with inflammatory diseases of the central nervous system significantly improved. The neurologist of the ambulatory practice often deals with chronic indolent viral neuroinfections and effects of the previously acute neuroinfections. Residual phenomena of neuroinfections often manifest themselves in hypertension syndrome varying in degrees of severity (increased intracranial pressure), as well as in asthenic-vegetative syndrome, which greatly reduces the ability to work and quality of life. The presence of prolonged subfebrile temperatures combined with persistent headaches and nausea, seizures of unknown origin is a reason to address the neurologist and examine yourself on neuroinfection.
Antibiotics also called antibacterials, are a type of antimicrobial drug used in the treatment and prevention of bacterial infections. They may either kill or inhibit the growth of bacteria. A limited number of antibiotics also possess antiprotozoal activity. Antibiotics are not effective against viruses such as the common cold or influenza; drugs which inhibit viruses are termed antiviral drugs or antivirals rather than antibiotics. Antibiotics revolutionized medicine in the 20th century. Antibiotics are used to treat or prevent infections. There are different routes of administration for antibiotic treatment. Antibiotics are usually taken by mouth. In more severe cases, particularly deep-seated systemic infections, antibiotics can be given intravenously or by injection.Antibiotics are screened for any negative effects before their approval for clinical use, and are usually considered safe and well tolerated. However, some antibiotics have been associated with a wide extent of adverse side effects ranging from mild to very severe depending on the type of antibiotic used, the microbes targeted, and the individual patient.
Preventive Medicine is a global intellectual journal that encourages prompt publication of original articles on the science and practice of disease hindrance, health promotion, and public health policymaking. Preventive medicine aims to reward innovation. It will favor perceptive empiric studies, thoughtful explorations of health knowledge, and unsuspected new angles for existing hypotheses, study randomised controlled trials, and impartial systematic reviews.
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.
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.
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."
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 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 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 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 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.
