Is orphan drug status beneficial to tropical disease control? Comparison of the American and future European orphan drug acts. (1/171)

OBJECTIVES To quantify past outcomes of tropical pharmacology research and development (R & D) and to assess past benefits of the American orphan drug act and potential benefits of the future European orphan drug regulation on tropical diseases. METHODS: This paper presents two analyses: a 1983-97 retrospective study of the United States Orphan Drug Act concerning rare diseases and a prospective study of the European Proposal for a Regulation Concerning Orphan Drugs and its possible impact on tropical diseases. RESULTS: Different programmes have in the past tried to stimulate R & D in this area, but results remain limited. Of 1450 new chemical entities marketed between 1972 and 1997, 13 were specifically for tropical diseases and considered as essential drugs. Between 1983 & 1997, the US Orphan Drug Act approved 837 drugs and marketing of 152 new molecular entities (NMEs). Three NMEs have been designated for malaria and human African trypanosomiasis. Seven others, already commonly used in tropical diseases, received either orphan designation or an orphan approval for another indication. Pharmaceutical companies benefit from the US framework only when the US market exclusivity clause was applicable. Future European orphan drug regulation appears to be similar to the US Orphan Drug Act. CONCLUSION The orphan drug programmes relating to rare diseases have met with some success. Considering tropical diseases rare diseases seems inadequate to boost pharmaceutical R & D. However, some provisions of the European text may be relevant to tropical diseases, admitting the need for a more specific rule for evaluations of this kind of drug and recognizing the existence of 'diseases of exception'.  (+info)

Threats to global health and survival: the growing crises of tropical infectious diseases--our "unfinished agenda". (2/171)

Health, one of our most unassailable human values, transcends all geographic, political, and cultural boundaries. The health problems of the rapidly growing 80% of the world's population that live in the tropical developing countries of Asia, Africa, and Latin America pose major threats to industrialized as well as developing regions. These threats can be divided into three areas, or three "E"s: (1) emerging, reemerging, and antimicrobial-resistant infections; (2) exploding populations without improved health; and (3) erosion of our humanity or leadership if we ignore the growing health problems of the poor. Our assessment of current trends in global population distribution and resource consumption; DALY calculations, causes, and distribution of global mortality and morbidity; and the misperceptions about and maldistribution of resources for health point to the critical importance of addressing tropical infectious diseases and global health for preservation of democracy and civilization as we know it.  (+info)

The production and preliminary investigation of Burulin, a new skin test reagent for Mycobacterium ulcerans infection. (3/171)

The preparation of a skin test antigen from Mycobacterium ulcerans by ultrasonic disintegration and filtration is described. The reagent, called Burulin, was tested in Africa in normal school children, and in patients with leprosy, tuberculosis or M. ulcerans disease. Those with tuberculosis or M. ulcerans disease were simultaneously tested with Tuberculin PPD. Burulin was found to be highly specific for patients in the reactive stage of M. ulcerans disease, and there was no cross-reaction in patients with other mycobacterioses. On the other hand, the majority of patients with M. ulcerans disease reacting to Burulin also produce positive reactions to Tuberculin PPD.  (+info)

The Seamen's Hospital Society: a progenitor of the tropical institutions. (4/171)

1999 marks the centenary of the two major British Schools of Tropical Medicine, founded in London and Liverpool, respectively. The origin(s) of the former clearly lies in the Seamen's Hospital Society, which dates from 1821. It seems likely that the foundation of this school (with Government support) also acted as a catalyst for the school at Liverpool, which in fact opened its doors a few months before that in London.  (+info)

The American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene initiative to stimulate educational programs to enhance medical expertise in tropical diseases. (5/171)

More than a decade ago, at a time when current and emerging tropical diseases posed growing threats to the United States, expert panels convened by the Institute of Medicine of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences concluded that medical expertise within the United States competent to address diseases of the tropics had declined. Recognizing a national need to encourage and enhance such, The American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene developed a program to stimulate new postgraduate medical education in diseases of the tropics. The Society formally requested academic institutions within the United States and Canada to propose new postgraduate programs. To assure the quality of these new curricular offerings, the Society developed an outline of key areas of competency and agreed to offer an examination that would grant physicians a Certificate of Knowledge in Clinical Tropical Medicine and Travelers Health. The certifying examination was to be an integral component of a program to stimulate academic institutions to provide instructional programs in tropical diseases and to encourage physicians to become trained, evaluated, and recognized for their knowledge of clinical tropical diseases and travelers' health. The Society's initiative to stimulate educational programs in tropical medicine is reviewed.  (+info)

Tropical and exotic infections. Proceedings of the 5th Liverpool Tropical School Bayer Symposium on Microbial Diseases. 14 February 1998. (6/171)

In summary, MDR strains of S. typhi are both epidemic and endemic in many countries in Asia and MDR S. paratyphi A has recently emerged in Pakistan. Multiple clones may be present in a given area at any time. Fluoroquinolones and third generation cephalosporins have been used widely over the past decade to treat MDR strains. The clinical superiority of fluoroquinolones is now threatened by the rapid emergence of chromosomally mediated resistance and cephalosporin resistance is also being reported. Whether these problems can be overcome by the use of newer fluoroquinolones or cephalosporins remains to be seen. Meanwhile, furazolidone and azithromycin deserve further trials, and clinical and molecular surveillance of resistance patterns remains essential.  (+info)

Infectious and tropical diseases in Oman: a review. (7/171)

Oman is generally hot and dry, but the Salalah region in southern Dhofar province is relatively cool and rainy during the summer monsoon, and has a distinctive pattern of infection. Important, notifiable infections in Oman include tuberculosis, brucellosis (endemic in Dhofar), acute gastroenteritis, and viral hepatitis: 4.9% of the adults are seropositive for hepatitis B surface antigen and approximately 1.2% for hepatitis C virus. Infection with human immunodeficiency virus is uncommon, and leprosy, rabies, and Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever are rare. Between 1990 and 1998, the incidence of malaria, (>70% due to Plasmodium falciparum) decreased from 32,700 to 882 cases. Cutaneous and visceral leishmaniasis (caused by Leishmania tropica and L. infantum, respectively) and Bancroftian filariasis occur sporadically. Intestinal parasitism ranges from 17% to 42% in different populations. A solitary focus of schistosomiasis mansoni in Dhofar has been eradicated. There are major programs for the elimination of tuberculosis, leprosy, and malaria, and to control brucellosis, leishmaniasis, sexually transmitted diseases, trachoma, acute respiratory infection in children, and diarrheal diseases. The Expanded Program on Immunization was introduced in 1981: diphtheria, neonatal tetanus, and probably poliomyelitis have been eliminated.  (+info)

A consolidation of the former Institute of Tropical Medicine and other entities led in 1926 to the formation of the School of Tropical Medicine. Funds from Columbia University were used for the training of different health professionals in the island. At the same time, the schools professors conducted studies in collaboration with Columbia University physicians on tropical diseases hitherto of unknown etiology, or of high prevalence morbidity and mortality in Puerto Rico. In 1946 following the end of World War II, Columbia University canceled the money sent to the Medical School, which led to its closure. The legislature authorized a School of Medicine at the University of Puerto Rico, into which the School of Tropical Medicine was integrated. ...

Doctor for tropical medicine Florian Steiner (R) and ward physician Thomas Klotzkowski stand in a disinfection chamber after cleaning their protective suits at the quarantine station for patients with infectious diseases at the Charite hospital in Berlin August 11, 2014. The isolation ward at the Charite is one of several centres in Germany equipped to treat patients suffering from ebola and other highly infectious diseases, the clinics doctor for tropical medicine Florian Steiner said. Ebola is one of the deadliest diseases known to humanity. It has no proven cure and there is no vaccine to prevent infection. The most effective treatment involves alleviating symptoms that include fever, vomiting and diarrhoea. The rigorous use of quarantine is needed to prevent its spread, as well as high standards of hygiene for anyone who might come into contact with the disease. The sign reads: Do not Enter.

South and Southeast Asia and Latin American together comprise 46 countries and are home to approximately 40% of the world population. The sociopolitical and economic heterogeneity, tropical climate, and malady transitions characteristic of the region strongly influence disease behavior and health care delivery. Acute kidney injury epidemiology mirrors these inequalities. In addition to hospital-acquired acute kidney injury in tertiary care centers, these countries face a large preventable burden of community-acquired acute kidney injury secondary to tropical infectious diseases or animal venoms, affecting previously healthy young individuals. This article reviews the epidemiology, clinical picture, prevention, risk factors, and pathophysiology of acute kidney injury associated with tropical diseases (malaria, dengue, leptospirosis, scrub typhus, and yellow fever) and animal venom (snakes, bees, caterpillars, spiders, and scorpions) in tropical regions of Asia and Latin America, and discusses the ...
In my opinion, the training for healthcare providers in the areas of clinical tropical medicine and travelers health in non-tropical countries has yet to reach an adequate standard. Each year, more and more tourists choose travel destinations in tropical and subtropical regions, often without immunization or malaria chemoprophylaxis. Returning travellers still succumb to malaria and other tropical infectious diseases simply because the infections are recognized too late, if at all, by medical professionals in American and European hospitals. Practice-oriented training program for doctors and other travel medicine professionals is essential to the prompt, correct diagnosis and treatment of tropical infectious diseases. A very special two-week Tanzanian excursion lay ahead of us, which we would later come to regard as an incredible experience.

People with blood type O often get more severely ill from cholera than people of other blood types. New research from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis may explain why.. In people with blood type O, scientists found that cholera toxin hyperactivates a key signaling molecule in intestinal cells. High levels of that signaling molecule lead to excretion of electrolytes and water - in other words, diarrhea. Cholera is marked by severe diarrhea that can lead to dehydration, shock and even death.. We have shown that blood type influences how strongly cholera toxin activates intestinal cells, leading to diarrhea, said James Fleckenstein, MD, the studys senior author and an associate professor of medicine and molecular microbiology.. The findings are available online in The American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.. Cholera sickens 3 million to 5 million people around the world every year, leading to 100,000 to 120,000 deaths, many of them in the Indian subcontinent, ...

Free-living amebas, usually harmless protozoan residents of soil and water, can cause three distinct, occasionally devastating, human illnesses. Primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM) is a disease of the previously healthy and is caused by Naegleria fowleri. Granulomatous amebic encephalitis (GAE) is caused by Acanthamoeba species or Balamuthia mandrillaris, and occurs in both healthy and immunocompromised persons. In wealthier countries, contact lens users may suffer from chronic amebic keratitis, also caused by Acanthamoeba. While these diseases are found worldwide, they are more common in tropical and subtropical regions. ...

In the most comprehensive study ever to be carried out into the nutritional content of organic food compared to ordinary fare, scientists found no significant difference in vitamins and minerals. A separate study found there are no extra health benefits to eating organic food rather than meat, fruits or vegetables grown on intensive farms. The Food Standards Agency (FSA), which commissioned the research by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, concluded there was no reason to buy expensive organic food for nutritional reasons. The study is likely to come as a blow to the billion-pound industry which is already struggling in the economic downturn as shoppers turn away from more expensive goods. For example, an organic chicken costs three times the price of a more conventionally-reared bird. But celebrity chefs and organic farmers said the studies failed to take into account the health impact of the cocktail of chemicals left on conventional food and the environmental benefits of ...
The chances are that if you turn on your television or scan your local news sources, you will hear about infectious diseases like HIV/AIDS, Ebola, Tuberculosis, Hepatitis and Measles. Now, can you say the same for Buruli ulcers? How about Guinea Worm disease? Chagas disease? Yaws or Schistosomiasis? Your response might not be as certain.. This is not because the diseases only infect a few people each year or are not as dangerous. Actually, combined, these diseases categorized as Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) impact more than one billion people every year [1]. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), NTDs include communicable diseases that exist in tropical and subtropical climates of nearly 150 countries, and mostly impact those living in poverty with close proximity to infectious vectors [1]. The WHO has created a roadmap to treat, prevent and eliminate the burden of NTDs, which includes five strategies of control: Preventative chemotherapy; Vector and intermediate host control; ...

In the developing world hundreds of millions of people suffer from intestinal parasitic worms (helminths) and intestinal protozoon infections (e.g. amoebiasis). These are often referred to neglected tropical diseases. This worm like organisms feed on their host, taking the nutrition and causing weakness and disease. More than 1 billion people are infected with soil-transmitted helminths, schistosomes and intestinal protozoa and the annual global burden might be as high as that owing to malaria or tuberculosis. This can cause undernourishment, dysentery (infection of the intestines) and diarrhea. It has been shown that parasitic infections in childhood can interfere with cognitive development (mental) and can have negative effects in adulthood. The global strategy to control helminthiasis is preventive chemotherapy, which is the regular administration of anthelminthic drugs (medication that works to treat parasitic worms) to at-risk populations. However, re-infection can occur due to unclear ...

Rwanda is the 13th country in Africa to carry out the campaign. The summit will be the first-ever global gathering to uniquely discuss Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases.. It will be reviewing the 2012 roadmap of the fight against Malaria and NTDs that was the first-ever strategic plan to end NTDs in response to the London declaration of NTDs.. Another decade-long roadmap to eliminate Malaria and NTDs by 2030 will also be laid.. The Minister of Health, Dr. Diane Gashumba informed the participants that Rwanda has made drastic improvements to curb Malaria and NTDs and that she hopes for Rwanda to be validated as an NTD-free country in the coming years.. Control and total rejection of malaria and NTDs is essential to socio-economic transformation. Those diseases are preventable, treatable and curable. The incredible progress against Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases is proof of what can be done, she says.. Ms Thoko Elphick-Pooley, Director of Uniting to Combat NTDs explained her ...
Effective control can be achieved when selected public health approaches are combined and delivered locally. Interventions are guided by the local epidemiology and the availability of appropriate measures to detect, prevent and control diseases. Implementation of appropriate measures with high coverage will contribute to achieving the targets of the WHO NTD Roadmap on neglected tropical diseases, resulting in the elimination of many and the eradication of at least two by 2020.. In May 2013, the 66th World Health Assembly resolved to intensify and integrate measures against neglected tropical diseases and to plan investments to improve the health and social well-being of affected populations. WHO is working with Member States to ensure the implementation of resolution WHA66.12.. In 2016, the 69th Assembly adopted resolution WHA69.21 on addressing the burden of mycetoma and requested WHO, through the Strategic and Technical Advisory for Neglected Tropical Diseases, to define a systematic, ...

Light collection of scientific letters, is a collection of letters, memos and autographs of renowned scientists and physicians. The signatures and correspondence were originally collected by David S. Light, M.D. (alumnus, Tulane University School of Medicine, 1944). The collection was donated to the Rudolph Matas Library of the Health Sciences between 1993 and 2003., [email protected], This item contains a signature of Friedrich Gustav Jakob Henle (b.1809, d.1885), a German physician, pathologist, and anatomist. His essay, On Miasma and Contagia, was an early argument for the germ theory of disease. He was an important figure in the development of modern medicine. The progress in science made by Henle depended on the improvements in light microscopy achieved in the 19th century. Henles work was not confined to the description of anatomic structures. After he had observed microorganisms in the excretions of diseased animals, he embraced the unpopular theory of contagion as the source of ...

Physical and mental suffering caused by disease are known to anyone, but disease also has economic consequences to individuals, households and societies that not everybody might be aware of. Depending on the disease and on the context of the affected individuals, these consequences might lead to economic hardship and even to impoverishment. Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are a group of communicable diseases associated with chronic, disabling and disfiguring morbidity, but also death, most of them affecting extremely poor populations. This thesis aimed at providing an improved understanding on the socioeconomic effect of NTDs on individuals and society, on the costs of a new diagnostic strategy to combat one of the NTDs, and on the impact of disease-related direct costs and productivity loss on the likelihood of impoverishment. This evidence can increase health policy dialogue and further encourage NTD prevention and control actions, assuring funders and policymakers that resources committed ...

Author Summary Dengue virus (DENV) represents a major disease burden in tropical and subtropical regions of the world, and has shown an increase in the number of cases in recent years. DENV is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito, typically Aedes aegypti, after which it begins the infection and replication lifecycle within human cells. To perform the molecular functions required for invasion, replication, and spread of the virus, proteins encoded by DENV must interact with and alter the behavior of protein networks in both of these hosts. In this work, we used a computational method based on protein structures to predict interactions between DENV and its human and insect hosts. We predict numerous interactions, with many involved in known cell death, stress, and immune system pathways. Further investigation of these predicted protein-protein interactions should provide targets to combat the clinical manifestations of this disease in humans as well as points of intervention
Introduction: A lack of prospective and longitudinal data on pre- and post-travel carriage of Blastocystis spp. complicates interpretation of a positive test post-travel. Therefore we studied dynamics of Blastocystis carriage in a cohort of Dutch travellers. Methods: From the prospective, multicentre COMBAT study among 2001 Dutch travellers, a subset of 491 travellers was selected based on travel destination to 7 subregions (70 or 71 travellers each). Faecal samples taken directly before and after travel were screened for Blastocystis with qPCR, followed, when positive, by sequence analysis to determine subtypes. Results: After exclusion of 12 samples with missing samples or inhibited qPCR-reactions, stool samples of 479 travellers were analysed. Before travel, 174 of them (36.3%) carried Blastocystis and in most of these, the same subtype was persistently carried. However, in 48/174 of those travellers (27.6%; CI95 20.8-36.6%) no Blastocystis or a different subtype was detected in the ...
Author Summary The spread of dengue (DEN) worldwide combined with an increased severity of the DEN-associated clinical outcomes have made this mosquito-borne virus of great global public health importance. Infection with DEN virus can be asymptomatic or trigger a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations, ranging from mild acute febrile illness to classical dengue fever and to severe DEN hemorrhagic fever/DEN shock syndrome (DHF/DSS). Progress in understanding DEN disease and in developing effective treatments has been hampered by the lack of a suitable animal model that can reproduce all or part of the diseases clinical manifestations and outcome. Only a few of the DEN virus strains reported so far elicit a virulent phenotype in mice, which results at best in an acute infection where mice die within few days with no, few or irrelevant disease manifestations. Here we describe a DEN virus strain which is highly virulent in mice and reproduces some of the aspects of severe DEN in humans, including the

Bill Gates believes-or at least believed-that government led market incentives could solve the fundamental conundrum in developing drugs for neglected diseases. For-profit companies see little economic justification to invest in treating diseases that affect the poor, but creative capitalism, as Gates put it, could lure companies into solving some of the worlds most pressing problems by bringing to market new treatments for endemic tropical diseases.. At the 2008 World Economic Forum in Davos, Gates highlighted a new US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) law that rewards sponsors of drugs for tropical diseases with a voucher that entitles the bearer to a priority review of another new drug application. If you develop a new drug for malaria your profitable, say, cholesterol lowering drug could go on the market up to a year earlier, Gates explained. And under the law, the voucher can be sold. This priority review could be worth hundreds of millions of dollars.. Gates was not the only one ...
Coming from a medical family background, thinking about how people experience health and illness was always an intuitive way for me to think about wider problems in society. I understand doctors expertise, and I dont think theyre wrong headed, said Webel. But, I do know theres real room for collaboration.. In the early 2000s, Webel was working at the National Archives in Washington, D.C., after obtaining a masters degree concentrating on cultural history. Then, the mosquito-borne West Nile Virus hit Washington, putting the nations capital into somewhat of a panic mode, she said. Webel made a connection to her research.. I remember thinking, this is not the first time D.C. had to deal with something like this; parts of D.C. were a malarial swamp in the 19th century. Our amnesia was so stark, she said.. I wanted to find a way to bring the history that I knew to be relevant into modern conversations about West Nile and other vector-borne diseases, so I decided to pursue a PhD focused on ...
Thursday, January 17, 2013. Its been a year since the World Health Organization released a road map to stop the spread of neglected tropical diseases by 2020. What has been its progress so far?. Based on a newly released report, theres reason to be optimistic.. WHO reports a hike in donations, which has enabled the group to expand the delivery of preventive chemotherapy, particularly for helminthiases and trachoma. It also noted impressive progress in ending dracunculiasis. Eradicating the disease, according to WHO, would result into a 29 percent jump in economic returns for the agricultural sector of countries where it is no longer endemic.. Among the biggest obstacles to the success of the road map: armed conflicts and population displacement. Violence not only disrupts delivery of preventive care and sufficient disease management and surveillance but also endangers the lives of health workers and hampers access to treatment.. ...

Tropical neurology refers to those diseases of the nervous system which prevail between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. Warm and humid tropical climates are ideal for growth and multiplication. The diversity and density of flora and fauna, including the human population, is not surprising in this region. Initially the tropical diseases included mainly the infectious and parasitic diseases. Today the world population is close to 5.6 billion and by 2050, is likely to exceed 10 billion; much of this growth is likely to occur in the tropical region.... ...

Pathology. Mycobacterium leprae is an acid- and alcohol-fast, gram-positive, rod-shaped intracellular bacillus which resembles M. tuberculosis. It is the least infectious of infectious diseases, with an incubation period which varies from a minimum of 3 months to 40 years; 2-4 years is the norm. The bacillus multiplies slowly, probably in 18-42 days and leprosy develops slowly clinically, over months and years compared with the hours or days of acute bacterial infections. M. leprae is an obligatory intracellular parasite. The organism multiplies best in the cooler parts of the body, the skin, ears, upper respiratory tract, the anterior chamber of the eye, the superficial nerves, and the testes. The earliest clinically detectable lesions are in the skin of the face and limbs or in the more superficial nerves. There are no established prodromal symptoms, although the skin lesions may itch and have focal paresthesiae. Invasion of deep organs takes place in lepromatous leprosy but the eyes, testes, ...
