As per available reports about 100 journals, 162 Conferences, 30 workshops are presently dedicated exclusively to lymphatic filariasis and about 366282 articles are being published on the current trends in lymphatic filariasis. In terms of research annually, USA, India, Japan, Brazil and Canada are some of the leading countries where maximum studies related to lymphatic filariasis are being carried out. As reported in Compliance to Mass Drug Administration Programme for Lymphatic Filariasis Elimination by Community Members and Volunteers in the Ahanta West District of Ghana, Lymphatic Filariasis (LF) is a neglected tropical disease caused by filarial nematodes. There are three species of parasitic nematodes namely Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi and Brugia timori responsible for causing the disease. LF is endemic in 72 countries in the tropics and sub-tropics where it is causing untold human suffering. About 1.4 billion of the populations in LF endemic areas are at risk of infection. Africa accounts for approximately 30% of the global burden of the disease, with 405.9 million people at risk of infection in 39 of its 46 member countries. In West Africa, the distribution of the disease is focal; with prevalence ranging from 3% to 12% in the southern sector and about 30% in the northern sector. The Journal of Bacteriology & Parasitology is an academic journal – hosted by OMICS International – a pioneer in open access publishing–and is listed among the top 10 journals in lymphatic filariasis. Each year research scientists have noticed a rise in the number of congresses being held in this field. The Journal of Bacteriology & Parasitology provides a unique platform to researchers and scientist to explore the advanced and latest research developments in the field of lymphatic filariasis, thus bridging the gap between researchers and young scientists. OMICS International – a pioneer in organizing international conferences Bacteriology 2014 International Conference scientific sessions housing the current trends in Bacteriology research, Bacterial Pathogenesis, Virulence & Countermeasures is one of the scientific session which deals with the Bacterial Virulence Protein Suppresses Host Innate Immunity . News in Bacterial Structure, Morphology & Metabolism will focus on the morphology of the bacteria and its causes of the diseases.
