About the Journal

Overview

In the wake of the present century advancement of medical and bioscience research allowed us to understand the diseases with more detail information. The recent reemergence and resurgence of tropical diseases have knocked down our pride of medical advancement. The number of growing cases raised major concern especially for tropical diseases. The present situation demands more research attention from the global scientific community. Generation of such information and its rapid dissemination is must considering the growing concern.
"Tropical Medicine" refers to the wide-ranging clinical research and an educational effort of clinicians, scientists, surgeons, with immunologic, surgerical and molecular approaches to tropical diseases, occurs solely in tropical and subtropical regions. Tropical Medicine & Surgery: Open Access emphasises the clinical, diagnosis, treatment of tropical diseases with their therapeutic & surgical aspects.
Tropical Medicine & Surgery is a peer-reviewed open access journal. Articles to be considered should in the form of original research, review, case studies, short communication etc. and readers can access information in a barrier-free manner.
Tropical Medicine and Surgery journal aims to provide a platform for international physicians, surgeons, medical scientists, allied health scientists, public health workers, and students, to meet the growing challenges of understanding, preventing and controlling the dramatic global emergence of infectious diseases.
This journal considers articles from all over the world covering the areas of tropical disease, such as Toxocariasis, Clinical Pathology, Infectious Diseases, Epidemiology, Tropical Diseases and Neglected Tropical Diseases,  Mycobacterial Ulcer (Buruli ulcer), Tropical Ulcer, Cancrumoris malaria, Ebola, plague, yellow fever, influenza, International medicine, Leishmaniaseschagas disease, Virology, Cholera, Meningitis, Tropical physicians, Public Health, Tuberculosis etc. Additionally, this periodical also encourages submitting articles with all related surgical aspects from the clinicians.

Tropical Medicine

Tropical medicine also known as international medicine, is the branch of medicine is dedicated to treatment, care and cure of tropical diseases, which are commonly occurring in developing countries due to lack of hygiene, knowledge etc. Tropical medicine mainly focuses on pharmacological, molecular biological, physiological, pathological and gene studies on treatment and management of alarming infectious diseases such as kala azar, tsutsugamushi, schistosomiasis, anthracia pestis, plague, malaria, cholera, Ebola hemorrhagic fever, leprosy, Japanese encephalitis, hepatitis

Tropical Medicine and Parasitology

Tropical medicine is the branch of medicine is dedicated to treatment, care and cure of tropical diseases, which are commonly occurring in developing countries due to lack of hygiene, knowledge etc. The most commonly occuring tropical diseases are Chagas disease, Dengue, Helminths, African trypanosomiasis, Leishmaniasis, Malaria, Sexually transmitted infections etc. Many of these diseases have been controlled or even eliminated from developed countries, as a result of improvements in housing, diet, sanitation, and personal hygiene. Parasitology is the study of parasites and the interaction of parasites with its hosts. A parasite is an organism that lives on or within another organism called the host. Plasmodium, Leishmania donovani, Entamoeba and Giardia are the parasites which causes parasitic diseases.

Tropical Medicine and Infectious Diseases

Tropical medicine is the branch of medicine is dedicated to treatment, care and cure of tropical diseases, which are commonly occurring in developing countries due to lack of hygiene, knowledge etc. The most commonly occuring tropical diseases are Chagas disease, Dengue, Helminths, African trypanosomiasis, Leishmaniasis, Malaria, Sexually transmitted infections etc. Infectious diseases are disorders caused by pathogenic microorganisms — such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites. Some infectious diseases can be passed from person to person. Some are transmitted by bites from insects or animals. Medications used to treat infectious diseases includes antibiotics, antivirals, antifungals, antiprotozoals, and antihelminthics.

Tropical Medicine and Hygiene

Tropical medicine is the branch of medicine is dedicated to treatment, care and cure of tropical diseases, which are commonly occurring in developing countries due to lack of hygiene, knowledge etc. The most commonly occuring tropical diseases are Chagas disease, Dengue, Helminths, African trypanosomiasis, Leishmaniasis, Malaria, Sexually transmitted infections etc. Hygiene refers to conditions and practices that help to maintain health and prevent the spread of diseases. Neglect of hygiene results in many diseases.

Tropical Medicine and Health

Tropical medicine is the branch of medicine is dedicated to treatment, care and cure of tropical diseases, which are commonly occurring in developing countries due to lack of hygiene, knowledge etc. The most commonly occuring tropical diseases are Chagas disease, Dengue, Helminths, African trypanosomiasis, Leishmaniasis, Malaria, Sexually transmitted infections etc. Health is the level of functional or metabolic efficiency of a living organism. In humans it is the ability of individuals or communities to adapt and self-manage when facing physical, mental or social challenges.

Tropical Health Nutrition

A poor diet may have an injurious impact on health, causing deficiency diseases like blindness, anemia, scurvy, preterm birth, stillbirth, cretinism and many other deficiency syndromes. Every human being should take nutrition rich food in their diet. Nutrition is the science that interprets the interaction of nutrients and other substances in food in relation to maintenance, growth, reproduction, health and disease of an organism. Malnutrition refers to insufficient, excessive, or imbalanced consumption of nutrients. Tropical Health Nutrition mainly focuses on the health of populations living in tropical & subtropical regions like Africa, North America, CENTRAL America, South America, Caribbean, South-east Asia. In tropical countries, the diseases of malnutrition are most often associated with nutritional imbalances or excessive consumption.

Tropical Fish Medicine

Tropical fish medicine is used to treat tropical fish diseases. Tropical fish diseases can be caused by bacteria, fungus or by parasites. Commonly seen tropical fish diseases are Septicemia, Cotton Disease, Dropsy, Fin Rot, Ich, Swim bladder Infection, Pop Eye, Hole in the Head etc. Tropical fish medicine includes Antibiotics, Anti-fungals, Anti-parasitics. The commonly used tropical fish medicines are Kanamycin Sulfate, Neomycin Sulfate, Pimafix, Melafix, Contraspot, Fungistop, Waterlife Cuprazin, Waterlife Myxazin, Waterlife Protozin, Waterlife Sterazin. Parasitic infections can be treated by raising the tank temperature. Most tropical fish can easily handle high temperatures. Bacteria that are most commonly effecting fishes are Mycobacterium (TB), Streptococcus, Pseudonocardio, Staphylococcus, Cynobacteria, Nitrifying bacteria.

Tropical Geographical Medicine

Tropical Geographic medicine is defined as the geographical perspective of health and disease living in the tropical and subtropical regions like Africa, North America, CENTRAL America, South America, Caribbean, South-east Asia. Geographic medicine is dedicated to treatment, care and cure of tropical diseases, which are commonly occurring in developing countries due to lack of hygiene, knowledge etc.

Tropical Medicine Research

Tropical Medicine research is dealing with the solutions to the increasingly urgent problems created by infectious diseases. Tropical Medicine research consists of studies on tackling infectious diseases and tropical diseases, which kill many millions of people every year. The research covers range from well-publicised killers such as malaria, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis to emerging diseases such as avian flu to important but unpublicised killers in the developing world such as melioidosis and scrub typhus.

Tropical Medicine Case Reports

Tropical medicine also known as international medicine which is dealing with the global health of people living in the underdeveloped countries. Tropical medicine case reports includes the detailed report of the symptoms, signs, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of an individual patient who is suffering from tropical diseases and infectious diseases.

Tropical Veterinary Medicine

Tropical Veterinary Medicine study mainly focuses on epidemiology and the diagnosis, treatment, and control of parasitic diseases in ruminants, dogs, cats, and horses. Its main aim is to improve human health and quality of life by means of increased and safe food production in tropical regions and subtropical regions through enhancement of research, training and education in veterinary medicine and livestock production within the framework of sustainable development.

Tropical Biomedicine

Tropical biomedicine is the branch of medical science that applies biological and other natural-science principles to clinical practice of tropical medicine. Tropical biomedicine includes research on tropical biomedicine and public health worldwide. It is a vast topic which includes many studies like biology, bacteriology, biochemistry, biotechnology, cell biology, environmental biology, microbiology, medical microbiology, pharmacology, physiology, pathology, immunology, virology, toxicology, epidemiology, vaccinology, hematology, histopathology, cytology and genetics for the tropical diseases

Tropical Diseases

Tropical diseases are diseases that are prevalent in or unique to tropical and subtropical regions. The organisms that cause tropical diseases are bacteria and viruses. This term is often taken to refer to infectious diseases that thrive in hot, humid conditions, such as malaria, leishmaniasis, schistosomiasis, onchocerciasis, lymphatic filariasis, Chagas disease, African trypanosomiasis, and dengue.

Tropical Fish Diseases

Tropical fish diseases can be caused by bacteria, fungus or by parasites. Commonly seen tropical fish diseases are Septicemia, Cotton Disease, Dropsy, Fin Rot, Ich, Swim bladder Infection, Pop Eye, Hole in the Head etc. These diseases can be treated by Kanamycin Sulfate, Neomycin Sulfate, Pimafix, Melafix, Contraspot, Fungistop, Waterlife Cuprazin, Waterlife Myxazin, Waterlife Protozin, Waterlife Sterazin. Parasitic infections can be treated by raising the tank temperature.

Neglected tropical diseases

Neglected tropical diseases are diverse group of tropical infections which are especially common in low-income populations in developing regions of Africa, Asia, and the Americas. Tropical medicine also known as international medicine, is the branch of medicine is dedicated to treatment, care and cure of tropical diseases.

Infectious Diseases

Infectious diseases, also known as transmissible diseases or communicable diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi; the diseases can be spread, directly or indirectly, from one person to another. Infectious Diseases can be transmitted by touching, eating, drinking or breathing something that contains a germ.

Emerging Infectious Diseases

Emerging Infectious Diseases are caused by newly identified species or strains that may have evolved from a known infection or spread to a new population or area undergoing ecologic transformation, or be reemerging infections, like drug resistant tuberculosis. The incidence of emerging infectious disease has increased in the past 20 years. These are a significant burden on global economies and public health.

Zoonotic diseases

Zoonotic diseases are infectious diseases of animals that can cause disease when transmitted to humans. These diseases can be caused by viruses, bacteria, parasites, and fungi. These diseases are very common. Some of the most common zoonotic diseases are Lyme disease, West Nile virus, Dengue, malaria, and chikungunya, Salmonella infection, E. coli infection.

Vector Borne Diseases

Vectors are living organisms that can transmit infectious diseases between humans or from animals to humans. Vector-borne diseases are infections transmitted by the bite of vectors like mosquitoes, ticks, triatomine bugs, sandflies, and blackflies. These diseases are commonly found in tropical and sub-tropical regions and places where access to safe drinking-water and sanitation systems is problematic. The most prevalent vector borne diseases are Malaria, Dengue, Lymphatic Filariasis, Kala-azar, Japanese Encephalitis, Chikungunya.

Epidemiology

Epidemiology is the science that studies the patterns, causes, and effects of health and disease conditions in defined populations. Epidemiological information is used to plan and evaluate strategies to prevent illness and as a guide to the management of patients in whom disease has already developed. The fundamentals and practice of epidemiology is to contribute to the understanding of the etiology and prevention of disease, and to improve the health of the public through excellence in research.

Public health

Public health is the science and art of preventing disease, prolonging life and promoting health through organized efforts and informed choices of society, organizations, public and private, communities and individuals. Public health professionals monitor and diagnose the health concerns of entire communities and promote healthy practices and behaviours to ensure that populations stay healthy.

Chagas Disease

Chagas disease is a tropical parasitic inflammatory disease caused by the protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi. It is mostly vector-borne transmitted to humans by contact with faeces of triatomine bugs. It is also called American trypanosomiasis. Treatment of Chagas disease focuses on killing the parasite in acute infection.

Ebola

Ebola virus disease, formerly known as Ebola haemorrhagic fever, is a severe, often fatal illness in humans. The virus spreads by direct contact with body fluids, such as blood, of an infected human or other animals. Specific treatment is not available for this viral disease. The symptoms of ebola disease are fever fatigue, muscle pain, headache and sore throat.
