2017 Annual Review of Diseases Prioritized Under the Research and Development Blueprint
World Health Organization. 04/03/2017 This 16-page document summarizes a meeting held on January 24-25, 2017, to review the list of priority diseases for the World Health Organization Research and Development (R&D) Blueprint. The R&D Blueprint focuses on severe emerging diseases with potential to generate a public health emergency, and for which insufficient or no preventive and curative solutions exist. The 2017 annual review determined there was an urgent need for research and development for nine diseases, including Filoviral diseases (including Ebola and Marburg); Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (M...

This Is When You're Most Likely To Catch The Flu
If you’re wondering when you might get the flu, a new study indicates you should keep an eye on your local weather report. According to research published in the Journal of Clinical Virology, a season’s first cold snap below 37 degrees Fahrenheit (or zero degrees Celsius, as defined in the study) preceded a mass spread of the flu in Gothenberg, a large metropolitan area of Sweden. The researchers suggest that if you keep your eye on the weather and watch for the first major dip in the temperature, you can essentially mark your calendar in anticipation for an influx of the illness.  “We believe that t...

By Amanda MacMillan Cases of flu are on the rise, according to a recent statement from the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and experts are warning that this year’s flu season will be worse than last. Now, a new study published in the Journal of Clinical Virology is shedding some light on exactly how cold weather and the spread of viruses are linked. It turns out, seasonal flu outbreaks first appear each year about a week after the winter’s first cold spell — or at least that’s what happened in Sweden, over the course of three years when researchers tracked weather...

Assessing Fever in Returning Travelers: Part II
  Zika continues to be the virus of the day for returning travelers, but there are several other diseases that we need to consider in these patients when they present to us in the emergency department. Chikungunya is epidemic in many of the same countries as Zika and can be even more devastating. And Avian and MERS-CoV is still present in many countries. Unlike patients infected with Zika virus, these patients do require isolation to protect our health care staff from infection.

By Drs. David Niesel and Norbert Herzog Sometimes I have to remind myself we are in the 21st Century when I hear that infectious diseases are a leading cause of death among adults and remain the leading cause of death in children. While most of these deaths occur in the developing world, a significant number occur in middle income countries. Vaccines are the most cost effective medical intervention known to prevent infectious diseases. An effective vaccine can significantly reduce the mortality associated with them. However, while we have come a long way, the reality is that we have relatively few effective vaccines. O...
