    Dr Prem Shankar Tripathi Miasm—miasm refers to the dynamic disease producing power which stain and pollutes human organism with unhealthy tendencies and thus become the producer of different types disease. Miasm may be two types— viz.1 acute miasm and 2. Chronic miasm Acute miasm—acute miasm is a dynamic disease producing power which causes acute specific infectious epidemic disease. NOTE: A surveillance case definition is a set of uniform criteria used to define a disease for public health surveillance. Surveillance case definitions enable public health officials to classify and count cases consistently across reporting jurisdictions. Surveillance case definitions are not intended to be used by healthcare providers for making a clinical diagnosis or determining how to.

    Since the first pandemic of cholera in spread through the Middle East to Europe, cholera has been among the most feared of the classic epidemic diseases.1 Cholera was highly virulent. Cholera is an acute diarrhoeal infection caused by ingestion of contaminated water or food. This introductory-level course has 4 sections and is intended for personnel responding to cholera outbreaks in complex emergencies or in settings where the basic environmental infrastructures have been damaged or destroyed. Section 1: Case definition and alerts for cholera. Section 2: Main transmission.

    Cholera Definition Cholera is an acute infectious disease characterized by watery diarrhea that is caused by the bacterium Vibrio cholerae, first identified by Robert Koch in during a cholera outbreak in Egypt. The name of the disease comes from a Greek word meaning "flow of bile." Cholera is spread by eating food or drinking water contaminated. Vibrio cholerae and Cholera biotypes. Vibrio cholerae is a normal inhabitant of aquatic environments such as drinking water, freshwater, wastewater, brackish water and sea bacterium consists of a wide variety of strains and biotypes, capable of receiving and transferring genes for toxins (Waldor and Mekalanos, ), colonization factors (Brown and Taylor, ; Karaolis et al.

Cholera is a frightening disease. Victims are wracked by stomach cramps and suffer intense diarrhoea. Death can come within hours. Though now seeming a distant memory in Europe, which suffered several epidemics in the 19th century before John Snow identified the link with water, cholera is still a serious threat in many parts of the world--Zimbabwe is a recent by: Mathematical models can project how infectious diseases progress to show the likely outcome of an epidemic and help inform public health interventions.

Models use basic On the infectious origin and propagation of cholera book or collected statistics along with mathematics to find parameters for various infectious diseases and use those parameters to calculate the effects of different interventions, like mass vaccination programmes.

Cholera is an infectious disease caused by bacteria named Vibrio a causes profuse diarrhea episodes and cause of cholera are toxins secreted by the Vibrio cholerae bacteria.

Microscopically, these bacteria appear curved (comma-shaped) and have a negative Gram stain. To the Editor: I read with great interest the article by Männikkö on the etymology of r, discovering the origin of the word with certainty is an intricate matter.

The word cholera is undoubtedly Greek because Hippocrates was the first to mention it in his writings, although the exact disease he was referring to is unknown (2,3).

Cholera is an infection of the small intestine by some strains of the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. Symptoms may range from none, to mild, to severe.

The classic symptom is large amounts of watery diarrhea that lasts a few days. Vomiting and muscle cramps may also occur. Diarrhea can be so severe that it leads within hours to severe dehydration and electrolyte cations: Dehydration, electrolyte imbalance.

Cholera is an acute diarrheal infection caused by the ingestion of food or water contaminated with the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. The causative agent of this disease was originally described by.

Cholera is an important public health problem, causing substantial morbidity and mortality especially in the developing countries. It is an indicator of socioeconomic problems and is a global threat to public health.

Worldwide, approximately 3–5 million cholera cases and ,–, deaths due to cholera occur annually. Cholera is transmitted by drinking water or eating food, which is Cited by: 5.

Cholera is an infectious disease that causes severe watery diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration and even death if untreated. It is caused by eating food or. Barua D: Cholera during the last hundred years (–), in Y. Takeda (ed): Vibrio cholerae and Cholera.

In seven major cholera pandemics beginning inthe "King of Terrors" has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives. The deadly effects of the so-called "disease of filth" spared no one, no matter their station in life--and today cholera is more prevalent than at any time throughout history.5/5(4).

Research on cholera has contributed both to knowledge of the epidemic in particular, and to a broader understanding of the fundamental ways in which cells communicate with each other. This volume presents current knowledge in historical perspective to enable the practitioner to treat cholera in a more effective manner, and to provide a comprehensive review for the researcher.

Cholera is an intestinal disease that is the archetype of waterborne illnesses. It spreads by the fecal-oral route: infection spreads through a population when feces containing the bacterium contaminate water that is then ingested by individuals.

Transmission of the disease can also occur with food that has been irrigated, washed, or cooked with contaminated water. London Epidemiological Society created to advise the government on ways to combat cholera and to examine the origin, propagation, mitigation and prevention of infectious diseases.

The third outbreak of cholera in London: 10, die. Committee for Scientific Enquiry denies Snow’s theory that cholera is water-borne. Infectious agent for cholera Cholera is an acute diarrheal illness caused by infection of the intestine with the bacterium Vibrio cholerae.

There are more than V. cholerae serogroups; however, only the toxigenic stains of serogroups O1 and O are predominantly associated with. Cholera can cause death from dehydration (the loss of water and salts from the body) within hours if not treated.

How is cholera spread. Cholera germs are found in the feces (poop) or vomit of infected people. Cholera is spread when feces (poop) or vomit from an infected person gets into the water people drink or the food people eat.

Cholera is an acute, diarrheal illness caused by infection of the intestine with the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. An estimated million cases and overdeaths occur each year around the world. The infection is often mild or without symptoms, but can sometimes be severe.

Approximately one in 10 (5 to 10 percent) infected persons will have severe disease characterized by profuse watery. Discover how the application of novel multidisciplinary, integrative approaches and technologies are dramatically changing our understanding of the pathogenesis of infectious diseases and their treatments.

Each article presents the state of the science, with a strong emphasis on new and emerging medical applications. The Encyclopedia of Infectious Diseases is organized into five : Michel Tibayrenc.

In addition to ORT, NIAID-funded researchers have found at the cellular and molecular levels other promising avenues for cholera treatment. Through an NIH Merit Award, a team led by Alan Verkman, M.D., Ph.D., of the University of California, San Francisco, studied the cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator (CFTR), a chloride channel in the intestines that is activated during cholera infection.

Abstract. The seventh cholera pandemic has heavily affected Africa, although the origin and continental spread of the disease remain undefined. We used genomic data from Vibrio cholerae O1 isolates, across 45 African countries and over a year period, to show that past epidemics were attributable to a single expanded lineage.

This lineage was introduced at least 11 times since Cited by:   Dr. Renaud Piarroux is a major scientific authority on cholera epidemics, an expert in infectious diseases and parasitology.
