Infections of alimentary canal due to action of microbes are known as gastrointestinal infections. Many microbes such bacteria (E. coli, Staphylococcus, Salmonella, Shigella, Campylobacter, Clostridium), viruses, (Rotavirus, Adenoviruses, Parvoviruses, etc) and other parasites (Giardia, Entamoeba, Ascaris) causes infection in various parts of gut. Few common symptoms that arise due to infections are vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramping, etc.
Diagnosis of gastrointestinal infections is confirmed by various types of laboratory tests using culture or antigen detection from stool specimen. In some cases microbial resistance of E. coli, Salmonella, Clostridium difficile is tested using antibiotic susceptibility. A major outbreak of gastrointestinal infection is mainly seen in hospital environment.
As per the recent survey about 200 million cases of gastrointestinal infections are reported only in US and cause about 3 to 6 million child deaths across the globe Many different preventive measures such as disinfections, sanitation are being taken and many societies such as “Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America”, “World Gastroenterology Organisation”, and “Infectious Diseases Society of America” are working towards the awareness of GI infections. Symptomatic, Oral as well as intravenous treatment is done for gastrointestinal infections.
Aim of our special issue entitled “Gastrointestinal Infections” is to encourage and provide with the current research and developments, marking the discoveries in related field of gastrointestinal infections.
