Sometimes, scientists have to look to the past to better understand the present. As the papers in this chapter demonstrate, this framework continues to guide research to elucidate the origins of emerging infectious threats, to inform the analysis of recent patterns of disease emergence, and to identify risks for future disease emergence events so as to enable early detection and response in the event of an outbreak, and. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Canadian Institute for Health Research, and the European Medicines. At the dawn of the 20th century, cancer, heart disease, kidney disease, cirrhosis, pneumonia, cholera, diphtheria, tuberculosis (TB) and influenza were relentless killers.

Appeal of food B. Other important defenses against infectious diseases include: Proper use of vaccines; Antibiotics. The potential use in both wealthy and resource-limited settings has fueled an intense effort to build on existing technologies and to generate new technologies for the diagnosis of a broad spectrum of infectious diseases.
