COVID-19 and other emerging and reemerging microbial diseases
Special issue is now open for submission of papers
We are organizing a Special Issue entitled: "COVID-19 and other emerging and reemerging microbial diseases" which will be published in the Bioscience Research, an interdisciplinary and peer-reviewed journal focusing on the area of public health. More information about the journal can be found at https://www.isisn.org/Bioscience_Research.htm. You can submit your paper to editorial Office via email: [email protected] Please mention BR18(SI-1)2021 code while submitting the papers.
Ever since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, SARS-CoV-2 has infected a significant number of people globally, with varied clinical outcomes. Medical researchers and health care personnel have been working to; develop strategies to prevent further spread of the virus, understand the molecular pathogenesis; advance effective treatments (including immunomodulatory agents) and highly anticipated vaccines. We need to reflect upon the developments and limitations related to SARS-COV-2.
Recently, several emerging microbial diseases have caused human and animal infections. Though certain emerging infections are localized, numerous emerging diseases have been dispersed worldwide. Increased cross-border travels and trades and climatic changes, exercise impending threats of increased incidence of emerging or reemerging microbial diseases on humans and animals. Arthropods, farm mammals and poultry serving as vectors or reservoirs lead to dissemination of newer pathogens. Three fourth of the human infections are caused by zoonotic infections. Avian influenza; SARS COV-1; MERS COV and recently SARS COV-2 in 2019 have caused significant human disease with higher mortality. All emerging and reemerging severe disease-causing pathogens need to be closely monitored to ensure better outcomes of the disease.
Area of research: Molecular epidemiology, clinical aspects, host–pathogen interactions/ pathogenicity; microbiological aspects/ lab diagnosis; immunology; case management; therapeutic options; preventive/ public health approach; novel antiviral drug development and vaccine design.
We welcome the submission of original research articles; review articles; short communications and case studies.
We look forward to publishing your latest research and review on "COVID-19 and other emerging and reemerging microbial diseases"
