Authors: Rai SK Abstract Many infectious/communicable diseases (IDs) are endemic in Nepal. Until a decade and half ago, IDs were the major cause of both morbidity and mortality accounting 70% for both. However, as a result of various preventive measures implemented by both the state and non-state actors, the overall IDs have shown a changing (declining) trend. The most impressive decline has been seen in the intestinal helminth infection. Though the overall burden of IDs is decreasing, several newer infectious diseases (emerging infections) namely, dengue fever, scrub typhus, influenza (H5N1 and H1N1), and others a...

The objective of this study was to evaluate whether NNN medium (NNN-test) prepared with chicken blood (NNN-C), ox blood (NNN-O), horse blood (NNN-H) or sheep blood (NNN-S) was viable for the isolation of parasites from naturally infected dogs, in an endemic area for visceral leishmaniasis caused by L. infantum. Spleen aspirates from six dogs previously diagnosed as infected by parasitological methods were simultaneously inoculated in each NNN-test medium, including the conventional medium prepared with rabbit blood (NNN-R), and the cultures were examined for three weeks under optic microscopy. Spleen samples were also anal...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review aims to evaluate the disease globally from its immunopathogenesis to clinical manifestations and treatment. We would like to call attention to an infectious disease, restricted to some countries in Latin America and with serious sequelae mainly at the pulmonary level.Recent FindingsParacoccidioidomycosis is a systemic fungal infection caused by a complex of thermal dimorphic fungi namedParacoccidioides brasiliensis andP. lutzii. It is the second most prevalent endemic mycosis in Latin America and is usually restricted to this geographical area. It is characterized by a primary pulmonary...

Ten people in the South Indian state of Kerala have died after being infected by the Nipah virus, an emerging disease thought to be spread by fruit bats and other animals. Here’s what you should know about the outbreak. What is the Nipah virus? The Nipah virus is a highly contagious and deadly virus that was first identified in 1999 when pig farmers in Malaysia and Singapore became very sick. During that outbreak, nearly 300 people were infected, and more than 100 people died. To stop the outbreak, authorities had to euthanize over one million pigs. Since then, the virus has been identified in outbreaks in Bangladesh...

End-stage renal disease in a growing endemic with hemodialysis being the most common treatment modality. Arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) remain the optimal choice for vascular access for hemodialysis. Some AVFs require primary intervention following creation to maintain functionally. No consensus currently exists regarding the clinical or diagnostic criteria necessitating invasive procedures. The aim of our study is to evaluate the factors predicting the need for primary intervention on AVFs.

Authors: Asamoah JKK, Nyabadza F, Seidu B, Chand M, Dutta H Abstract Vaccination and treatment are the most effective ways of controlling the transmission of most infectious diseases. While vaccination helps susceptible individuals to build either a long-term immunity or short-term immunity, treatment reduces the number of disease-induced deaths and the number of infectious individuals in a community/nation. In this paper, a nonlinear deterministic model with time-dependent controls has been proposed to describe the dynamics of bacterial meningitis in a population. The model is shown to exhibit a unique globally as...
