Rapid Antigenic Diagnostic Test Validated for Ebola Virus Disease

 Hemorrhagic fever outbreaks are difficult to diagnose and control in part because of a lack of low-cost and easily accessible diagnostic structures in countries where etiologic agents are present. Initial clinical symptoms are common and shared with other endemic diseases such as malaria or typhoid fever. More...

Diagnostic Efficacy of Immunomarkers in Fungal Bloodstream Infection

 Fungemia is the presence of fungi or yeasts in the blood and is a life‐threatening condition with the global mortality rate surging more than fivefold in the past decade. It has been reported that the outcome depends on early and targeted treatment; thus, prompt diagnosis is essential at the early stage of infection. More...
