Journal of Immunological Techniques in Infectious Diseases is a subscription based scientific Journal that provides a range of options to individuals and university libraries to purchase our articles and also permits unlimited Internet Access to complete Journal content. However JIDIT has recently started following Hybrid Model of publication of articles. Under hybrid model, journal is giving option to authors to choose their mode of publishing; either Open Access (making individual articles freely available online) or Subscription (article access restricted to journal subscribers).
JIDIT accepts wide range of articles including research, review, short communication, case report, rapid communication, letter to the editor, conference proceedings etc. The journal has a sound Editorial Board of experts in their fields. Articles submitted by authors are evaluated by Editors and a group of peer review experts in the field to ensure that the accepted and published articles are of high quality, reflect solid scholarship in their fields, and that the information they contain is accurate, reliable and beneficial to the scientific community.
Journal of Immunological Techniques in Infectious Diseases is organizing & supporting 4th International Conference on Vaccines & Vaccination which is going to be held during September 24-26, 2014 at Valencia, Spain with the theme of Recent Innovations and Benchmark Practices in Vaccines & Vaccination.
State of the Art on Plant-Made Single-Domain Antibodies
In addition to conventional antibodies (with heavy and light chains), camelids also produce functional antibodies devoid of light chains (HCAbs) without the first constant domain (CH1). Their variable domains (VHH) have binding properties, high stability and solubility, and are considered the smallest available intact antigen–binding fragment derived from a functional immunoglobulin. For their practical utilities VHHs have been expressed in different platforms. This review aims to provide an update in the field of plant-made VHHs, their applications and limitations, and a discussion about the challenges for the near future in this field.
A Study on Japanese Encephalitis in and around Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh, India
Japanese encephalitis (JE), is mosquito borne viral disease, caused by arbovirus; a member of the family Flaviviridae and is transmitted to humans through a pig-culex mosquito-pig cycle. Humans are an incidental host and most infections of JE virus are asymptomatic. The ratio of unapparent to apparent infection is 200:1 to 300:1 but if clinical illness develops, it causes significant morbidity and mortality. Approximately 3 billion people and 60 per cent of the world population live in JE-endemic regions, and inspite of being a vaccine preventable disease there are approximately 50,000 cases and 15,000 deaths per annum notified from wide geographical range, and half of the survivors suffer severe neuropsychiatric sequelae of the disease.
Markers of Inflammation among Nigerian Periodontitis Patients
Periodontitis cause local and gradual systemic immune response leading to increased production of inflammatory cytokines and acute phase proteins recognised to constitute major risk factors for the development of cardiovascular diseases.This study aim to determine baseline levels of markers of inflammation (C-reactive protein, Total leukocyte count and serum viscosity) among periodontitis patients in Warri, Delta state, Nigeria.
Immunological Diagnosis of Lymphatic Filariasis in Dogs of Kerala, India using Filarial Antibody Detection Immunospot Test
Lymphatic filariasis caused by filarial nematodes, Brugia malayi and Wuchereria bancrofti is a major vector borne disease prevalent in human beings in the tropics. This study was carried out to facilitate the immunological diagnosis of lymphatic filariasis in domesticated pets in Kerala, India using Filarial Antibody detection spot / immunodot test using Signal MF Reagent.
