As per available reports about 45 journals, 30 Conferences and 5 workshops are presently dedicated exclusively to Leprosy and about 45138 articles are being published on the current trends in Leprosy. In terms of research annually, USA, Kenya, Thailand, Brazil and Vietnam are some of the leading countries where maximum studies related to Leprosy are being carried out. Leprosy remains endemic in poorer parts of the world. In 2006 there were approximately 260000 new cases reported worldwide. As reported under News Medical, the infection is thought to be spread person to person by nasal secretions or droplets; susceptibility to getting leprosy may be due to certain human genes. Leprosy research has been given a great boost by the decoding of the genome of Mycobacterium leprae, the causative organism. The skin lesions and deformities can be very disfiguring and are the reason that infected individuals historically were considered outcasts in many cultures. Antibiotics are used in the treatment of leprosy.
