Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

“Pathogenesis, Prophylaxis, Treatment of Infectious Diseases” is a Special Issue that aims to draw the attention of the medical community toward infectious diseases. Lately, the world has been experiencing the COVID-19 pandemic, the worst pandemic that we can remember. Over the years, viruses have proven that they can be unpredictable, but bacteria, parasites and fungi can also take us by surprise. Global efforts have focused on prevention, and in some cases with success: on the 29th of March 2023, the World Health Organization announced that a total of 42 countries or territories had reached the malaria-free milestone. Yet, there is still much to be done regarding cholera epidemics, monkeypox outbreaks, tuberculosis prevalence, the emergence of the new multidrug-resistant fungus Candida auris and many more. We aim to attract as much new information as possible about infectious disease agents and their pathogenesis and treatment, and prevention and prophylaxis are highly required.

In this Special Issue, we welcome original articles and reviews providing new research data on infectious diseases, irrespective of the etiology, whether that be bacterial, viral, parasitic or mycotic, and on novel biomarkers, early diagnosis, pathology, molecular mechanisms, new therapies and prophylactic means.
