The term ‘Sexually Transmitted Diseases’ (abbreviated STDs) alludes to a cluster of sicknesses that can be transmitted starting with one individual then onto the next through the sharing of body liquids, including discharge, vaginal liquids, blood, and different liquids. They have a wide range of causes (counting microscopic organisms and infections), they deliver an assortment of manifestations (or nonattendance of side effects), and they have altogether different impacts on the body when left untreated.

Sexually transmitted diseases are transmitted when body liquids from a contaminated individual come into hint contact with someone else. As their name infers, the most well-known course through which this body liquid sharing happens is sexual action.

Pathogenic organisms are the agents of infectious diseases. Directly or indirectly from one person to another these infectious diseases can give rise to various devastating health issues.

There are a few ways that a parasite can contaminate a host. Numerous parasites go through messy water. Water borne pathogens are normal in places where the water is untreated and polluted by sewage. It is appalling however the most ideal route for such a parasite to taint another host is to go out of the old host in dung and afterward get again into another host when water sullied by sewage is devoured.

The relationship between infertility, birth defects with infection is long known. Asymptomatic infections caused by certain infections are more devastating as the absence or lack of symptoms prevents the patients from seeking timely medical intervention which consequently leads to chronic damage of the pelvic organs.

Chlamydia, among the most common sexually transmitted diseases, affects an estimated 100,000 pregnant women each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Premature birth of the baby which happens before 37 weeks of the pregnancy. Birth defects which is the abnormal shapes and function of the baby.

Emerging Infectious Diseases are those whose incidence or geographic range is rapidly increasing or threatens to increase in the near future. The rise of new infectious diseases or the re-emergence of the old infectious diseases is favored by many factors like evolution of the pathogens, human behavior and practice.

The emerging diseases can be established by its introduction into a population and its ability to spread from one person to another. Many emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases have been discovered like Hemorrhagic fever, Encephalitis, Zika virus & West nile virus etc.

The immune response to an infection depends if the infection is for the first time or the infection has occurred before. When the pathogen has already attacked once and has generated the memory cells in the host the response to the infection will be intense on the next exposure. The immune response to the foreign body in the host is due to series of other response from the immune cells.

From recent years, the advancement and use of sub-atomic analytic systems had made a transformation in the finding and checking of infectious diseases. Molecular diagnostics are utilized to distinguish irresistible infections like chlamydia, flu infection and tuberculosis. Hereditary distinguishing proof can be made for instance loop-mediated isothermal enhancement test analyze the intestinal sickness parasite in the developing countries. In spite of these advances in genome examination, in 2013 diseases are still more regularly distinguished by different means like proteome, bacteriophage, or chromatographic profile. Sub-atomic diagnostics are utilized to comprehend the particular strain of the pathogen—for instance by recognizing which sedate resistance qualities it has—and consequently which treatments to maintain a strategic distance from.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) propose HIV testing as a normal piece of medicinal watch over pre-adult or grown-up between the ages of 15 and 65 at any least once. Sexually transmitted diseases might be identified amid a physical exam; through Pap smears; and in trial of pee, blood, and genital and butt-centric emissions. For STDs– like herpes, hepatitis, HIV and syphilis, a little blood test is utilized for the STD testing while chlamydia and gonorrhea test is finished with a pee test.

Medication revelation and development is an expensive procedure due to the high expenditure in the R&D and human clinical trials testing. The normal aggregate cost per medicate improvement differs from US$ 897 million to US$ 1.9 billion. The run of the mill improvement time is 10-15 years. For the research of the new drug it involves the identification of the target site for the drug interaction for the blocking process.

2.3 million HIV infections were discovered globally. Large part of the population discovered with HIV infection discovered was in their reproductive stage and the men and women diagnosed with HIV were likely to want children. Perinatal transmission of HIV, also called as Vertical Transmission, occurs when HIV is infected from HIV-positive women to her baby during pregnancy, labor and delivery or breastfeeding. The percentage of transmission ranges from 15 to 45% during pregnancy, labor and delivery. The rate of transmission increases to additional 35 to 45% when there is breast feeding by the mother to child. The transmission rate depends on the type of STD and the mode of transfer.

In today’s world the sexually transmitted diseases are one of the most critical health challenges. Nearly 500 new million new cases of STD are registered per year and the individuals infected are in the age limit of 15 to 44 years. The STDs global testing market was valued at $107,024 million in 2015, and estimated to reach $190,010 million by 2022, registering a CAGR of 8.5% over the forecast period.

Ebola hemorrhagic caused by virus belonging to the family Filoviridae which is also called as Filovirus. This virus is also known as Zoonotic Virus as it is transmitted from animals to humans. This disease was first appeared in 1976 in 2 simultaneous outbreaks but the largest outbreak was discovered in West Africa which was also the most complex outbreak from the time it was discovered. Fruit bats of the Pteropodidae family are natural Ebola virus hosts the transmission is done from the by the close contact with the blood.

That bioinformatics pathogen profiling can help to predict the patient outcome and also find the markers for the early diagnosis and prevent the devastating outcomes. Using bioinformatics as the tool a pathogen profile can be considered as a single multivariate observation or a set of observations, comprised of classes of specific attributes, which are designed for a comparison with a knowledgebase. The presence of several repetitive sequences in the genome of the pathogen can be used for the comparison.

Enzymatic destruction, enzymatic modification, altered target and decreased uptake are the various ways by which the pathogenic organism shows resistance to the antimicrobial substance. The resistance is brought about by the alteration in the target site or the modification or the inactivation of the antibiotic, modification of metabolic pathway to reduce the antibiotic effect to the organism, decreasing the influx by decreasing the permeability.
