Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome

Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is a viral respiratory disease of zoonotic origin caused by the SARS coronavirus (SARS-CoV). Initial symptoms are flu-like and may include fever, muscle pain, lethargy symptoms, cough, sore throat, and other nonspecific symptoms. SARS may eventually lead to shortness of breath and pneumonia; either direct viral pneumonia or secondary bacterial pneumonia. DIscover the latest research on SARS here.

Listeriosis

Listeriosis is mainly a food-borne illness caused by l. monocytogenes; people most prone to the disease are pregnant women, newborns, elderly, and those with hiv or other diseases compromising immunity. Discover the latest research on listeriosis here.

Amoebiasis

Amoebiasis, infection by the protozoan parasite Entamoeba histolytica, remains a global health problem, despite the availability of effective treatment. Here is the latest research.

Noroviruses

Noroviruses are the most commonly identified cause of outbreaks and sporadic cases of acute gastroenteritis. Discover the latest research on Noroviruses 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.

Poliomyelitis, also known as polio, is a viral disease that can rarely lead to paralysis. This disease is nearly eradicated due to vaccination. Discover the latest research on Poliomyelitis here.

HIV Vaccine

The development to make HIV vaccines for both the prevention and treatment of HIV infection is ongoing. Some individuals with HIV infection produce antibodies which suppress the virus and allow the patients to remain asymptomatic, suggesting that a vaccine may be achievable. Find the latest research on HIV vaccines here.

Allergy And Infectious Diseases

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.
