Host factors in urinary infections

Abstract

To prevent the urologist from becoming simply a urinary tract mechanic we must develop more specific tests, perfect present tests and use these tests to elicit faulty mechanisms of host resistance of patients with urinary tract infections. We must then provide, from our research information, therapeutic measures to protect the faulty host from the inconvenience of recurrent significant bacteriuria and its sequelae.

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.
