    Best History Books about Epidemics. Members: 21 participating members Newly Emerging Diseases in a World Out of Balance. by Laurie Garrett. 1, members, 23 reviews ( stars) Lists: stellarexplorer (3) civilization () culture () disease (1,) epidemic () epidemiology (). for reporting notifiable infectious disease and condition cases can vary by disease, condition, or reporting jurisdiction. The case-status categories used to determine which cases reported to NNDSS are published in the tables are listed by infectious disease or condition in the publication criteria column of the NNDSS event code list (Box 2).

      The deadliest disease in the world is coronary artery disease (CAD). Also called ischemic heart disease, CAD occurs when the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart become narrowed. The eradication of a disease is permanent and global, while the elimination of a disease is an achievement restricted to a specific geographic area.. Eradication of a disease refers to a deliberate effort that leads to the permanent reduction to zero of the worldwide incidence of infection caused by a specific agent. 1; Eradication means that intervention measures are no longer required, the.

    Disease - Disease - Epidemiology: The interaction of host and parasite populations constitutes the subject matter of epidemiology (the term being more inclusive than suggested by its relation to the word epidemic). In most instances the epidemiology of infectious disease is characteristic of that disease and is an outgrowth of biological properties of the parasite and the host, including host. Disease control refers to reducing the incidence of disease to a desired level (which will vary depending on the disease) and includes diseases such as malaria (Dowdle, ). Disease elimination is defined as zero disease in a defined geographic area as a result of control measures.

Res.85th Congress, and S. Res. 42, 86th Congress, November 9, Epidemiology is the study and analysis of the distribution (who, when, and where), patterns and determinants of health and disease conditions in defined populations. It is a cornerstone of public health, and shapes policy decisions and evidence-based practice by identifying risk factors for disease and targets for preventive iologists help with study design, collection, and.

In keeping with the goal of this series, A History of Infectious Diseases and the Microbial World provides a broad introductory overview of the history of major infectious diseases, including their impact on different populations, the recognition of specific causative agents, and the development of methods used to prevent, control, and treat them.

By stressing the major themes in the history Cited by: Epidemics for certain diseases, such as influenza, are defined as reaching some defined increase in incidence above this baseline.

Spread of H1N1 in Europe, The World Health Organization declared the new flu strain H1N1 as a pandemic in June   Evidences showed that diseases transmitted by rodents sometimes increase during heavy rainfall and flooding events because of altered patterns of human–pathogen–rodent contact.

For example, during hazard periods deer mice may enter human dwellings searching for food and thereby transmit hantavirus to humans, leading to hantavirus pulmonary Cited by: Environmental changes can affect the incidence of these diseases by altering the habitats of disease vectors.

Diseases transmitted through blood transfusions or blood products. Improvements in blood donor screening, serologic testing, and transfusion practices have made the U.S. blood supply one of the safest in the world, despite its size and. Human beings have benefited from vaccines for more than two centuries.

Yet the pathway to effective vaccines has been neither neat nor direct. This paper explores the history of vaccines and immuni. Although low-income countries face a rising burden of cardiovascular diseases, cancers, injuries and other non-infectious conditions, infections still caused the majority of deaths in (figure 2 c).In addition, these statistics on infectious diseases, which count deaths mostly from endemic infections, exclude the threat of epidemics and pandemics.

The naming of diseases called fever are usually based on specific epidemiological and clinical characteristics of the disease including: the way the disease is acquired (e.g. Hay fever is a febrile illness due to exposure to ‘hay’ in predisposed individuals); the transmitting vector/agent (e.g.

cat scratch fever is an infectious disease due. Patterns of immigration and population flows reflect diverse and emerging demographic, economic, and social pressures, many of which differ from historical immigration trends (World Bank, ).

The health and disease challenges associated with these modern movements are reflective of several elements that have developed since traditional. The cold war era has passed. The fall of the Berlin Wall in marked the beginning of the disappearance of old borders and a new global era of unparalleled human movement and interaction.

Although the new global arena has created economic opportunities and growth, the benefits have not been equally distributed, and the risks—especially the health risks—of this increasingly.

Humans have long sought advice from those with knowledge or skill in healing. Paleopathology and other historical records, allow an examination of how ancient societies dealt with illness and in Ancient Egypt sponsored physicians that were specialists in specific diseases.

Imhotep was the first medical doctor known by name. An Egyptian who lived around B.C., he was an. WHO Mortality Database. The WHO Mortality Database is a compilation of mortality data by age, sex and cause of death, as reported annually by Member States from their civil registration systems.

Cholera is an important public health problem, causing substantial morbidity and mortality especially in the developing countries. It is an indicator of socioeconomic problems and is a global threat to public health. Worldwide, approximately 3–5 million cholera cases and ,–, deaths due to cholera occur annually.

Cholera is transmitted by drinking water or eating food, which is. Consistent estimates of cause-specific mortality are essential for understanding the overall epidemiological profile of disease in a population. The principal data source for these estimates is civil registration systems.

Adequately functioning systems that produce statistics on causes of death on a regular basis exist in only about one-third of all countries of the world (Lopez et al.

During the study period, 31% of all human-specific infectious diseases represented 80% of all outbreaks. Stomach flu (viral gastroenteritis) caused the greatest number of cases of infectious disease, 15 million, while salmonellosis — an infection typically contracted from consuming food containing salmonella bacteria — was responsible for.

Medical diagnosis (abbreviated Dx or D S) is the process of determining which disease or condition explains a person's symptoms and is most often referred to as diagnosis with the medical context being implicit.

The information required for diagnosis is typically collected from a history and physical examination of the person seeking medical care.

Often, one or more diagnostic. The burden of chronic diseases is rapidly increasing worldwide. It has been calculated that, inchronic diseases contributed approximately 60% of the million total reported deaths in the world and approximately 46% of the global burden of disease (1).

The proportion of the burden of NCDs is expected to increase to 57% by The pattern of large pharmaceutical companies during and after World War II in the search for new antibiotics was continued in the development of the tetracycline drugs in the United States.

Lederle Laboratories in Pearl River, New York and Parke, Davis & Company in Detroit, Michigan initiated research independently in on the isolation of.

In addition to this, the book is a comprehensive exploration of the meaning of public health science, of new experiences and valuable lessons, and recollections of certain researchers. The emergence of a disease or abnormal phenomenon now typically results in.

This is coupled with destruction of the physical and often economic infrastructure of the area. For example, dengue increased in South-East Asia during the Second World War and the immediate post-war period, due to the spread of mosquitos and different virus strains throughout the region.

Wars have also been very important in the spread of plague.A type of epidemiological research that provides information on disease patterns by considering various characteristics of person, place and time, using descriptive statistics.

The purpose of descriptive epidemiology is to describe the health situation rather than attempting to identify a causative factor.World Health Statistics » rates of psychiatric disorder are almost identical for men and women but striking gender differences are found in the patterns of mental illness.

In developed countries, approximately 1 in 5 men and 1 in 12 women develop alcohol dependence during their lives.
