1. Emerging Microbes & Infection:
The microbial world is complex, dynamic, and constantly emerging. Infection causing organisms reproduce rapidly, mutate frequently and adapt with relative ease to their new surroundings. Because of these characteristics, infectious organisms are able to alter their epidemiology, their virulence, and their susceptibility to anti-infective drugs. All forms of infectious organisms—bacteria, viruses, parasites, and prions are able to emerge or re-emerge in human populations and it is estimated that up to 70 per cent or more of all emerging infections have a source in animals.
· Detection of new microbes
· Epidemiology, organisms involved and transmission
· Disease reservoirs
· Nosocomial infection
· Direct and indirect mode of transmission
· The challenge of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases.
· Relationship between virulence and survival
2. Infectious Diseases:
Infectious diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi; the diseases can be spread, directly or indirectly, from one person to another. Zoonotic diseases are infectious diseases of animals that can cause disease when transmitted to humans.
· Bacterial and viral Infectious Diseases
· Fungal and parasitic Infectious Diseases
· Food-borne, air-borne and water-borne Infectious diseases
· Sexually Transmitted diseases
· Pediatric Infectious Disease
· Communicable infectious diseases
3. Infectious Diseases in Plants and Animals:
Diseases in plants and animals caused by pathogens and environmental conditions In case of plants , include fungi, oomycetes, bacteria, viruses, viroids, virus-like organisms, phytoplasmas, protozoa, nematodes and parasitic plants. Animal infectious diseases are an important threat to human health, since the emergence of human diseases is dominated by zoonotic pathogens. Infectious Diseases affects livestock and also wild animals, focusing on characterizing the conditions for the pathogen spread and maintenance in the host population.
· Parasitic diseases and fungal infections
· Plant pathogens & diseases causing Bacteria
· Nematodes and protozoa causing infections
· Plant viruses
· Parasitic disease in animal
· Disease causing microbes in animal
· Transmission of infections by animals
· Infection: Zika virus and Influenza (H1N1)
4. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD):
COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a progressive disease that makes it hard to breathe. Progressive means the disease gets worse over time.COPD can cause coughing that produces large amounts of a slimy substance called mucus, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and other symptoms. Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of COPD. Most people who have COPD smoke or used to smoke. However, up to 25 percent of people with COPD never smoked. Long-term exposure to other lung irritants—such as air pollution, chemical fumes, or dusts—also may contribute to COPD. A rare genetic condition called alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT) deficiency can also cause the disease.
· Emphysema and chronic bronchitis
· Signs and symptoms of COPD
· Genetic Factors
· Diagnosis of COPD
5. Immunology of Infectious Diseases:
Immunology is the study of the immune system and is a very important branch of the medical and biological sciences, that deals with the response of an organism to antigenic challenge and its recognition of what is self and what is not. By understanding how pathogens cause disease helps in the development of new therapeutic approaches. Virulence is the measure of the pathogenicity of an organism. The degree of virulence is related directly to the ability of the organism to cause infection despite host resistance mechanisms, it is affected by numerous variables such as the number of infecting bacteria, route of entry into the body, specific and nonspecific host defence mechanisms and virulence factors of the bacterium.
· Clinical immunology
· Virulence factor
· Infection and immunity
· Host- microbe interaction and biology
· Immunology of diseases
· Microbial pathogenesis
· Development of vaccine
6. Diagnostic Microbiology and It’s Application:
Diagnostic microbiology is the study of microbial identification. Since the discovery of the germ theory of disease, scientists have been finding ways to harvest specific organisms. Using methods such as differential media or genome sequencing, physicians and scientists can observe novel functions in organisms for more effective and accurate diagnosis of organisms. Methods used in diagnostic microbiology are often used to take advantage of a particular difference in organisms attain information about what species it might be, often through a reference of previous studies
· Rapid antigen detection
· Rapid identification after culture
· Conventional tests
· ELISA test
· Molecular detection (nucleic acid probes and nucleic acid amplification)
· Rapid biochemical tests
· Direct microscopy
· Molecular typing
7. Treatment and Therapeutics:
Treatment and therapeutics of infectious diseases involves patient care and moral support including therapy, medicine and antimicrobial agent. Bacterial infections can be treated by administering antibiotics to the patients. Yeast infections can be primarily treated by sterilisation methods. Parasitic infections can be treated by antiparasitic drugs. Diseases such as cancer can be treated by chemotherapy. Recent techniques have proved that there is no disease that cannot be treated.
· Antimicrobial agent
· Chemotherapeutic agent
· Traditional medicine
· Vaccine and vaccination
· Molecular therapeutics
· Biopharmaceutical Product
· Herbal treatment
· Antibiotics and antiseptics
· Antiinflammatory drugs
8. Clinical Microbiology:
Clinical Microbiology is a branch of medical science concerned with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases. Moreover, this field of science is concerned about various clinical applications of microbes for the improvement of health.
· Clinical analysis or clinical biology
· Specific groups of microbial pathogens
· Control of antibiotic resistance strains and MDR strains
9. Infection Control & Prevention:
Infection control is the discipline concerned with preventing nosocomial or healthcare-associated infection, a practical sub-discipline of epidemiology. It is an essential, though often under recognized and under supported, part of the infrastructure of health care. Infection control and hospital epidemiology are akin to public health practice, practiced within the confines of a particular health-care delivery system rather than directed at society as a whole. Anti-infective agents include antibiotics, antibacterials, antifungals, antivirals and antiprotozoals.
· Infection control and health care epidemiology
· Infection prevention and control guidelines
· National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN)
· Antimicrobial and chemotherapeutic agent
· Safe injection practices
10. Microbial Genomics & Genome Sequencing:
The molecular mechanisms of infectious disease and identify potential therapeutic and diagnostic targets by exploiting next-generation genomic data. It focuses on the comparative analysis of genomes obtained from local clinical isolates of important pathogens such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococci, Campylobacter, Streptococci, ,and Acinetobacter baumannii and many other microorganisms.
· Microbial whole genome sequencing
· Functional genomics
· Genome comparisons and phylogeny
11. Epidemiology of Infectious Diseases and Public Health Concerns:
The epidemiology of infectious disease (ID) involves study of the prevalence, incidence and determinants of infections in populations. Infectious diseases remain one of the most important causes of morbidity and mortality around the world. In addition to studying the rates of and risk factors for infectious disease, ID epidemiologists implement and evaluate interventions at the individual and community level to: prevent infection (primary prevention) and, among those with infections, to prevent development of disease (secondary prevention) or disease-associated death and disability (tertiary prevention).
· Infectious Disease Epidemiology
· Case Control Studies in Infectious Disease Epidemiology
· Cancers of public health significance
· Specific Chronic Diseases
· Disease surveillance
· Importance for public health, epidemiology, promoting factors, and prevention
