Journal of Pathogen Research is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that traces the etiology, histology, evolution and spread of the pathogens responsible for chronic and acute health disorders, suggesting possible cure for the same.
Journal of Pathogen Research offers an open access forum to create awareness on the emerging communicable and contagious disease that may otherwise turn epidemic if not detected and treated early. The journal thus caters to the interests of clinical practitioners, lab technicians, medical practitioners, pharmacists, pharmacologists, academicians and students that are keen in exploring clinical pathology for innovative diagnostic discoveries.
The journal includes a broad spectrum of topics for study, including but not limited to; Pathogen detection, Host-Pathogen Interaction, Pathogenicity, Bacterial pathogens, Parasitology, Entomology, Bloodborne Pathogens, Parasitology, Entomology, and Molecular Pathogenesis.
The process of detecting or determining the pathogens that means the causative organisms like virus, bacteria and microorganisms is called Pathogen detection method. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR), culture and colony counting methods as well as immunology-based methods are the most common tools utilize for pathogen detection. They involve DNA analysis, counting of bacteria and antigen–antibody interactions, respectively.
The host-pathogen interaction is explained as how microbes or viruses prolong themselves within host organisms on a molecular, cellular, organismal or population level. This word is most commonly used to introduce to disease-causing microorganisms however they may not cause infection in all hosts. Because of this, the definition has been expanded to how well-known pathogens withstand within their host, whether they cause disease or not.
Pathogenicity introduced to the capability of an organism to cause disease (i.e., harm the host). This ability represents a genetic element of the pathogen and the overt damage done to the host is a property of the host-pathogen interactions. Commensals and opportunistic pathogens lack this inherent potential to cause disease.
Parasitology is the study of parasites, their hosts, and the interconnection between them. As a biological discipline, the field of parasitology is not decided by the organism or environment in question, but through their way of life. This means it constructs a synthesis of other disciplines, and draws on techniques from fields like cell biology, bioinformatics, biochemistry, molecular biology, immunology, genetics, evolution and ecology.
Pathogenic bacteria are a type of bacteria that can cause infection. Although most bacteria are harmless or often helpful, some are pathogenic, with the number of species evaluated as fewer than 100 that are seen to cause infectious diseases in humans. By contrast, several thousand species exist in the human digestive system.
Food born pathogens are a type of pathogen that results in Foodborne illness (also foodborne disease and colloquially referred to as food poisoning) is any illness resulting from the food spoilage of adultrated food, pathogenic bacteria, viruses, or parasites that adultrated food, as well as toxins such as toxic mushrooms and various species of beans that have not been boiled for at least 10 minutes.
At present, in the modern oncology the damage of the genetic apparatus of the cell is considered to be the primary cause of cancer, and the pathogenesis of cancer is seen as a process of modification of a normal cell into a tumour cell, as indicated by deep elemental research of the pathogenesis of cancer, which is held entirely at the cellular, molecular and genetic levels of the organism.
Pathogenic fungi are the type of fungi that cause disease in humans or other organisms. The study of pathogenic fungi is referred to as "medical mycology." However, fungi are eukaryotic organisms, many pathogenic fungi are also microorganisms. Fungicides, like ziram are used to safeguard plants against fungal infections.
Bacteriology is the division and strenght of biology that studies the morphology, ecology, genetics and biochemistry of bacteria as well as many other features related to them. This section of microbiology assumes the identification, classification, and characterization of bacterial species.
Virology is the review of viruses-submicroscopic, parasitic particles of genetic material accommodated in a protein layer and virus-like agents. It concentrates on the following characteristics of viruses: their structure, classification and evolution, their ways to damage and exploit host cells for reproduction, their interaction with host organism physiology and immunity, the diseases they cause, the techniques to isolate and culture them, and their use in research and therapy. Virology is considered to be a subfield of microbiology or of medicine.
Entomology is the scientific analysis of insects, a division of zoology. In earlier days, the term "insect" was more unclear, and historically the explanation of entomology comprised the study of earthly animals in other arthropod groups or other phyla, such as arachnids, myriapods, earthworms, land snails, and slugs.
Molecular pathology is an appearing discipline within pathology which is determined in the study and identification of disease through the exploration of molecules within organs, tissues or bodily fluids.
Bloodborne pathogens are virulent microorganisms in human blood It causes disease in humans. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
