Abstract

We describe a test for rapid detection of S. dysenteriae 1 in bacterial cultures and in stools, at the bedside of patients. The test is based on the detection of S. dysenteriae 1 lipopolysaccharide (LPS) using serotype 1-specific monoclonal antibodies coupled to gold particles and displ...read more

Cholera (ASM)

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.

Clostridium Difficile Infection

Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is the leading cause of infectious diarrhoea in hospitalised patients. Discover the latest research on CDI here.

Giardiasis

Giardia is caused by Giardia lamblia, a parasite that colonizes the small intestine and is transmitted via the fecal-oral route. Find the latest research on giardiasis here.

Antimicrobial Resistance (ASM)

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

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.

Salmonella infections

Salmonella infections are a serious public health problem in developing countries and represent a constant concern for the food industry. Discover the latest research on Salmonella Infections here.

Ascariasis

Ascariasis is a helminthic infection of global distribution with more than 1.4 billion persons infected throughout the world. Here is the latest research.

Tetracyclines

Tetracycline is an oral antibiotic used to treat a number of infections including cholera, plague, malaria, and syphilis. It is also the first line of treatment for several diseases including Rickettsia and Lyme disease. Here is the latest research.

Emerging Infectious Diseases

Emerging Infectious Diseases are defined as those whose incidence in humans has increased in the past two decades or threaten to increase in the near future. Discover the latest research on Emerging Infectious Diseases.

Giardiasis (ASM)

Giardia is caused by Giardia lamblia, a parasite that colonizes the small intestine and is transmitted via the fecal-oral route. Find the latest research on giardiasis here.

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.

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.
