Methods, procedures, and tests performed to diagnose disease, disordered function, or disability.
An immunoassay utilizing an antibody labeled with an enzyme marker such as horseradish peroxidase. While either the enzyme or the antibody is bound to an immunosorbent substrate, they both retain their biologic activity; the change in enzyme activity as a result of the enzyme-antibody-antigen reaction is proportional to the concentration of the antigen and can be measured spectrophotometrically or with the naked eye. Many variations of the method have been developed.

In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.

  • Researchers from the University of Granada , Spain, and the University of Glasgow , Scotland, have used 3D printing to enable the diagnosis of parasitic infections using smartphones. (
  • Drugs For Parasitic Infections. (
  • The diseases chosen are those for which immunodiagnostic methods have been developed to improve the diagnosis in infections where either the conventional parasitological diagnosis is insensitive in light infections, or where the parasites are not directly demonstrable without surgical or other invasive procedures. (
  • This is followed by short discussions of such nonimmunologic diagnostic methods as demonstrating various egg, larval, or adult forms of the parasite in various body tissues or fluids, for identifying and characterizing mass lesions in internal organs associated with some helminthic infections, or other methods. (
  • Currently, optical detection of light density early-stage parasitic infections requires the analysis of large volumes of sample material. (
  • Most CNS infections may be considered as 'severe and treatable diseases', e.g. human African trypanosomiasis (HAT), cerebral malaria, bacterial meningitis, CNS tuberculosis etc. (
  • Unfortunately, most neuro-infections present with non-specific symptoms in their early stages, leading to important diagnostic delays. (
  • Parasitic infections are especially a concern for certain groups such as infants, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems. (
  • The Institute's research into these viruses seeks to understand how these carbohydrates are utilised in viral infections so that scientists may identify targets for the development of new drugs that will treat and cure these diseases. (
  • Parasitic infections such as malaria, Chagas disease, African sleeping sickness, leishmaniasis and schistosomiasis, still present as important public health challenges in tropical environments, with devastating socio-economic consequences in poor countries. (
  • Infectious diseases continue to pose a significant threat to human health, with many types of infections having far-reaching, global consequences. (
  • NIAID is also supporting the development of new diagnostic tests, drugs, and preventative measures which could stop fungal infections. (
  • NIAID research on parasitic infections is targeted at developing a better understanding of the pathogenesis of infections and developing more effective prevention approaches, diagnostics, and treatments for them. (
  • Among these infections, those diseases caused by parasitic protozoa such as Chagas disease, malaria, leishmaniasis and African trypanosomiasis still represent serious issues in public health. (
  • Due to their relevance in terms of epidemiological trends, the diagnosis of these infections and the deployment of new diagnostic methods are needed to identify and treat the symptoms of these diseases, or to treat the diseases themselves. (
  • The rise of molecular techniques and DNA detection has played a prominent role in detecting infections, treatment follow-ups, disease installations and infection outcomes. (
  • WASHINGTON , May 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ - The examination of autopsied brain tissues from patients who died of serious neurological conditions has revealed that many tick-borne infections, such as Lyme disease, go undiagnosed and untreated. (
  • MacDonald says his discovery also shows "while patients are wrongly declared free of Lyme and other tick-borne infections, in reality, too often they contract serious neurodegenerative diseases which can kill them. (
  • Although parasitic infections are common throughout the world, most clinicians are inexperienced in the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases. (
  • Clinicians increasingly are confronted with parasitic infections, such as malaria, schistosomiasis, and trypanosomiasis, because of the increase in international travel and the recent immigration of persons from Southeast Asia, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. (
  • Many parasitic infections may be encountered in tropical areas, and the effect of these diseases on less developed countries is staggering. (
  • This chapter summarizes the clinical aspects, treatment, and potential toxicity of treatment for common parasitic infections that might be encountered during pregnancy. (
  • Textbooks on tropical medicine and parasitology provide more definitive information on these and other parasitic infections. (
  • Dr. Spiegel has a great deal of experience in treating all aspects of skin disease, ear infections, and allergies. (
  • Kaufmann J (1996) Text book of parasitic infections of domestic animals. (
  • This of course does not exclude the submission of papers on the genetics and phenotypes of host susceptibility towards infectious disease or colonization, or the use of animal models to study bacterial infections and the imaging of such infections. (
  • Dr. Liao has pioneered the application of confocal endomicroscopy in the urinary tract, endoscopic molecular imaging of bladder cancer, an in vitro molecular diagnostics for urinary tract infections and bladder cancer. (
  • The first symptoms of malaria (most often fever, chills, sweats, headaches, muscle pains, nausea and vomiting) are often not specific and are also found in other diseases (such as influenza and other common viral infections). (
  • Each section starts with a brief overview of the epidemiology, life cycle, transmission, and clinical manifestations of the parasite, detailed enough to orient the reader to the clinical relevance of the pathogen without distracting from its macroscopic and microscopic diagnostic features. (
  • Most chapters begin with several pages of introductory material encompassing such topics as the nature of the parasite involved and the disease it causes, and its world distribution and epidemiology. (
  • Related Information: Is Part Of Diagnosis and epidemiology of animal diseases in Latin America. (
