Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Tropical medicines encompass conditions that occur solely or principally in the tropics, as well as those that are more difficult to manage or control in the tropics, which might include a range of communicable as well as non-communicable diseases. Communicable diseases include a number of infectious and parasitic diseases, such as malaria, leishmaniasis, schistosomiasis, onchocerciasis, lymphatic filariasis, Chagas disease, African trypanosomiasis, and dengue, as well as some of the emerging infectious diseases, such as Ebola. A number of diseases are regarded as neglected tropical diseases by the World Health Organization. Non-communicable diseases often include a number of chronic diseases of growing importance in the tropics, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, respiratory diseases and diabetes. This Special Issue will focus on improving our understanding of the global burden on these problems, as well as new developments in pathology, diagnosis, management and prevention of these conditions. It will also include novel mechanisms of drug delivery and treatment.
