Abstract

In a 14 months period, as from March 1973 to April 1974 468 cases of acute bacterial meningitis have been diagnosed by C.S.F. findings; namely by examining the protein and sugar content, by the cell counts, Gram's staining and culturing of the sediments of C.S.F. 188 cases were proven by culturing to be meningococcic meningitis. All these cases are from the families living in suburban areas of the city under crowded circumstances, which show the importance of population density in the epidemiology of this particular disease.

Allergy & Infectious Diseases (ASM)

Allergies result from the hyperreactivity of the immune system to some environmental substance and can be life-threatening. Infectious diseases are caused by organisms including bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. They can be transmitted different ways, such as person-to-person. Here is the latest research on allergy and infectious diseases.

Antimicrobial Resistance

Antimicrobial resistance poses a significant threat to the continued successful use of antimicrobial agents for the treatment of bacterial infections.
