Clinical Trials Related to Infectious Diseases
Infectious diseases are disorders caused by organisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, or parasites. Signs and symptoms vary depending on the organism causing the infection, but often include fever and fatigue. Many infectious diseases such as measles and chickenpox can be prevented by vaccines.
Participate in a clinical trial to help find alternative treatment options for different infectious diseases.
COVID-19 is caused by a coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness.
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a virus that can infect people of all ages. CMV spreads from person to person through body fluids, such as blood, saliva, urine, semen and breast milk. There is no cure, but there are medications that can help treat the symptoms.
Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria normally live in the intestines of healthy people and animals. Some types can cause severe stomach cramps, bloody diarrhea and vomiting. Healthy adults usually recover from infection with E. coli typically within a week, but young children and older adults have a greater risk of developing a life-threatening form of kidney failure.
Respiratory Syncytial Virus Vaccine
RSV is a common respiratory virus that usually causes mild, cold-like symptoms. Most people recover in a week or two, but RSV can be serious, especially for infants and older adults. In fact, RSV is the most common cause of bronchiolitis (inflammation of the small airways in the lung) and pneumonia (infection of the lungs) in children younger than 1 year of age in the United States. It is also a significant cause of respiratory illness in older adults.
