The Need for Research

  • Infectious diseases are among the most critical health problems worldwide.
  • One out of every three people worldwide is infected by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative agent of tuberculosis.
  • Re-emerging infectious agents, as well as new antibiotic-resistant strains, make infectious diseases a major health problem of the new millennium. Between 1973 and 1999, more than 35 newly emerging infectious diseases were identified.
  • Without rapid development of antimicrobials and vaccines, we face an era of drastically increased morbidity and mortality from infectious diseases.
