Abstract

Shigellosis or bacillary dysentery, an acute bloody diarrhoea, is a major public health burden in developing countries. In the absence of prompt and appropriate treatment, the infection is often fatal, particularly in young malnourished children. Here, we describe a new diagnostic test ...read more

Shigellosis

Shigellosis is an infection of the intestines caused by Shigella bacteria. Signs and symptoms may range from mild abdominal discomfort to full-blown dysentery characterized by cramps, diarrhea, with slimy-consistent stools, fever, blood, pus, or mucus in stools or tenesmus. Discover the latest research on shigellosis here.

Cholera

Cholera is an infectious disease caused by the bacteria Vibrio cholerae O1 and/or O139. When ingested, its clinical sequelae include the acute onset of severe secretory ‘rice water’ diarrhoea. Within three to four hours of symptom onset, a previously healthy individual may become severely dehydrated and if not treated may die within twenty four hours. This makes cholera one of the most rapidly fatal infectious illnesses known. Discover the latest research on cholera here.

Immune Therapies In Cancer

Immunotherapy in cancer is used to help the immune system fight against invading cancer cells. It is used to slow the progression of the disease and prevent metastasis while enhancing the immune response. There are different types, including monoclonal antibodies and checkpoint inhibitors. Here is the latest research on immune therapies in cancer.

Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary hypertension results in increased pulmonary arterial pressures and pulmonary vascular resistance, commonly from cardiac and respiratory diseases. As a result of the structural and functional changes, right heart failure can occur, leading to premature death. Here is the latest research on pulmonary hypertension.
