About the Journal
The microbes and the branch of microbiology are the most studied due to their great importance to medicine. Medical microbiology studies growth and development of the infectious disease in a patient and in human population (epidemiology). It is associated to the study of disease pathology and immunology.
Bacteriology is the study of morphology, ecology, genetics and biochemistry of bacteria. Bacteria are single-celled microorganisms that lack a nuclear membrane, are metabolically energetic and division by double fission. Medically they are a main source of disease. Rapidly, bacteria appear to be relatively simple forms of life; in fact, they are cultured and highly adjustable. Many bacteria multiply at rapid rates, and different species can utilize an enormous variety of hydrocarbon substrates, including phenol, rubber, and petroleum. These organisms occur widely in both parasitic and free-living forms. Because they are universal and have a extraordinary capacity to adjust to changing environments by assortment of impulsive mutants, the importance of bacteria in every field of medicine cannot be excessive.
Viruses can be classified permitting to the host cell they infect: animal viruses, plant viruses, fungal viruses, and bacteriophages. Another association uses the geometrical form of their capsid or the virus's structure. Virus’s variety in size from about 30 nm to about 450 nm, which means that most of them cannot be seen with light microscopes. Epidemiologic studies show that viral infections in developed countries are the most common cause of acute disease that does not require hospitalization.
Infectious diseases are conditions caused by organisms — such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. Many organisms live in and on our bodies. They're normally harmless or even supportive, but under convinced environments, some organisms may cause disease. Some infectious diseases can be passed from person to person. Some are transmitted by bites from insects or animals and others are acquired by consumption contaminated food or water or being unprotected to organisms in the environment. The record of human sorrow and death caused by smallpox, cholera, typhus, dysentery, malaria, etc… establishes the reputation of the infectious diseases. Despite the outstanding successes in control afforded by improved hygiene, immunization, and antimicrobial therapy, the infectious diseases continue to be a common and significant problem of modern medicine.
In accumulation, some fungi have economic importance as plant and animal pathogens. Fungal diseases of healthy humans tend to be relatively benign, but the few life-threatening fungal diseases are particularly important. Fungal diseases are an increasing problem due to the use of antibacterial and immunosuppressive agents. Individuals with an different bacterial flora or cooperated defense mechanisms (e.g., AIDS patients) are more likely than healthy people to grow opportunistic fungal infections such as candidiasis. Accordingly, opportunistic fungal pathogens are progressively important in medical microbiology.
Medical Microbiology Reports is a multidisciplinary, peer reviewed, open access journal that reports the advancements in the field of Medical Microbiology including prevention, diagnosis and cure of infectious diseases that may spread due to microbes. The journal also focuses on the widespread dissemination of research related to innovations in the diagnostic tools and therapeutic strategies.
Medical Microbiology Reports journal also provides updated knowledge on topics such as Microbial Pathogens, including Bacteria, Viruses, Fungus, and Parasites, Infectious Diseases – Epidemiology, Immune System: Defense Mechanisms, Immune Responses to Infectious Agents, Genetic Information of Microbes, and Causes & Transmission of Diseases, Disease Diagnosis, Microbial Cultures, Pathogenicity, and Pathogen Interactions.
The journal welcomes the latest Reports on Medical Microbiology as original research article, review article, short communication, case report, letter-to-the-Editor and Editorials for publication in an open access platform. All the published articles can be accessed online without any subscription charges and will receive the benefit of extensive worldwide visibility.
All the submitted manuscripts undergo peer review by the subject matter experts under the supervision of the Editor-in-Chief or assigned Editorial committee member of the Medical Microbiology Reports Approval of at least two independent reviewers and the editor is mandatory for the acceptance of the manuscript for publication.
The Editorial Manager System helps in maintaining the quality of the peer review process and provides easy access to the authors to track the status of the manuscript, including evaluation and publication in an automated way. Subject experts under the supervision of the Editor-in-Chief review the manuscripts. Approval of at least two independent reviewers and the editor is mandatory for the acceptance of the manuscript for publication.
