New research has investigated the burden of nontuberculosis mycobacterium pulmonary disease in Germany, discovering high mortality and financial burden.
International collaborative research has analyzed Ebola virus genomes from the 2013–2016 outbreak, uncovering the role of factors such as language and distance between cities.
Environmental change, and a growing and more connected population will promote vector-borne disease risk further. In this opinion piece, the authors discuss the role of climate modeling in disease prediction and epidemiology.
Researchers have identified the southern states of the USA as most at risk of high burden from Zika virus.
Researchers have demonstrated that both hepatitis B and hepatitis C infection are associated with an increased risk of Parkinson’s disease.
Researchers have demonstrated that outbreaks of dengue virus have a local structure, and hope their findings on transmission patterns could lead to better targeted interventions.
Ensuring marginalized populations aren’t ‘invisible’ in health data – an interview with Rob Aldridge
Editor, Martha Powell, speaks to Rob Aldridge about his research in infectious disease epidemiology and identifying the health inequalities faced by vulnerable and marginalized populations.
Understanding the etiology of atypical exanthems, especially the infectious ones, remains difficult but crucial. In this review, the authors describe the etiology and epidemiology of the atypical exanthems caused by infectious agents.
Researchers have analyzed the clinical characteristics of Zika infection in Canadian travelers returning from the Americas, discovering that severe complications might be more common than previously estimated.
Researchers have suggested that disease “superspreaders” may have been responsible for two-thirds of cases in the West Africa Ebola epidemic. Targeting these individuals could lead to better disease control measures in future outbreaks.
