Using an algorithm for the first interaction between an immune system and a new bacterium, researchers may be able to predict the onset of diseases like tuberculosis (TB).
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) module includes scenarios based on real cases to help healthcare providers recognize the early signs of Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and differentiate it from similar diseases.
Early Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) diagnosis may require more sensitive risk assessment tools to reduce delays related to patients and health system.
Pigs infected with African swine fever may look similar to animals infected with other domestic and foreign animal diseases such as classical swine fever (hog cholera), porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS), porcine dermatitis and nephropathy syndrome, erysipelas, salmonellosis, actinobacillosis, Haemophilus parasuis infection (Glasser’s disease) and pseudorabies.
This report provides recommendations issued by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for Q fever recognition, clinical and laboratory diagnosis, treatment, management, and reporting for health-care personnel and public health professionals. The guidelines address treatment of acute and chronic phases of Q fever illness in children, adults, and pregnant women, as well as management of occupational exposures.
The purpose of this manual is to enhance recognition of African swine fever at all levels for early warning and early reaction, so that the disease can be identified and eliminated at the earliest appearance in any area. Special attention has been given to the clinical, anatomical and pathological similarity of African swine fever with classical swine fever.
This resource provides a list of technical information resources available from the World Health Organization on responding to an Ebola virus outbreak.
This resource describes the diagnosis of yellow fever through virological (namely, detection of the viral genome, detection of viral antigens, or virus isolation) and/or serological methods.
In 2017, the Saudi Ministry of Health released a visual triage system with scoring to alert healthcare workers in emergency departments and hemodialysis units for the possibility of occurrence of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) infection in their patients.
