The lack of an effective diagnostic test is one of the main barriers to addressing leptospirosis

The lack of an effective diagnostic test is one of the main barriers to addressing leptospirosis, a life-threatening zoonotic disease, whose global burden is estimated to be as high as 500,000 cases annually. Leptospirosis is an emerging infectious disease problem in industrialized countries like the U .S. And is a major cause of morbidity and mortality among impoverished people in the developing world. Leptospirosis, particularly in the early phase of the disease is often misdiagnosed as dengue, malaria and other causes acute fever. The delay in detecting leptospirosis has potentially serious consequences, as the disease progresses to cause life-threatening manifestations such as pulmonary hemorrhage syndrome and acute renal failure. Albert Ko, Associate Professor of Medicine at Weill Medical College of Cornell University and Visiting Researcher at the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation, commented: ‘The collaboration with Chembio has in applying the selected markers Chembio DPP format This grant This grant allows us to complete development the assay and the assay and available to doctors and as part of the as part of efforts to fight this important global infectious disease problem ‘.

Javan Esfandiari, Senior Vice President of R & D of Chembio, commented, We are pleased with the recognition that the award of this grant by NIH provides Chembio and our patented technology DP pleased I am very grateful for the excellent work of Dr. Albert Ko from Cornell and Dr. Konstantin Lyashchenko, Chembio senior R & D director, and the rest of the Chembio the R & D team. .

The Qualitative and Quantitative Ways of Understanding on Clinical MR Images is supply Monday, November. Weight is the most commonly used technical terms in the clinical MR image contrast and refers differences in in cloth qualities and thereby to pathology, but the term is no more than a labels be used in the MRI Physics and literature.
