Special Issue "Diagnostic Infectious Disease and Microbiology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2021.
Infectious diseases and clinical microbiology are fascinating and rapidly changing fields in medicine, with ongoing complex challenges. In recent years, a real revolution in infection diagnosis has occurred thanks to the incorporation of a wide arsenal of techniques based on various technologies, such as molecular methods, immunoassays, mass spectrometry, FISH, RMN, and so on. Diagnostic stewardship is essential for the optimization of these techniques and to accomplish their maximum efficiency and profitability. This Special Issue seeks manuscript submissions to extend the scientific knowledge and to evaluate, compare, and review the state of the art in methods and algorithms for the diagnosis of different infectious diseases, such as:
- Bone and joint infections;
- Blood stream infections;
- Central nervous system infections;
- Cardiovascular system infections;
- Gastrointestinal infections;
- Lower respiratory system infection;
- Sexually transmitted infections;
- Surgical site infections;
- Skin and soft tissue infection;
- Upper respiratory system infections;
- Urinary tract infections.
