The Journal of Immunological Techniques in Infectious Diseases(JIDIT) is a scholarly peer-reviewed journal that encourages rigorous research that makes a significant contribution in advancing knowledge for techniques used for detection, prevention & treatment of emerging infectious diseases. JIDIT includes all major themes pertaining to Infectious diseases like Diagnostic techniques, epidemiology, immune response, vaccination etc.

Scope of the Journal includes:

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.

Manuscripts along with cover letters can be submitted to the journal via online submission system or as an e-mail attachment to the Editorial Office at editor.jidit@scitechnol.com or editor.jidit@scitechnol.org or editor.jidit@scitechnol.net. Authors can also track the status of their manuscripts post submission through our manuscript tracking system.

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.

Clinico-Demographic Profile and Status of Hepatitis B Immunization among Chronic Kidney Disease Patients Seeking Tertiary Hospital Care

As Hepatitis B is associated with worse outcome, greater tendency towards chronicity and more likelihood of a carrier state in uraemic patients, control of Hepatitis B infection has been a continuous challenge in the management of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). This study aims to analyse clinico-demographic and laboratory profile of chronic kidney disease patients and highlight the hepatitis B immunization status among such patients.

The CD4 Cell Count Interest in HIV-Positive Patients under Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) in a Limited-Resource Country

In 2009, in sub-Saharan Africa, an estimated 22.5 million adults and children were HIV/AIDS infected and an estimated 1.3 million died from HIV-related diseases. By 2010, almost 40% of those in need of ART were enjoying care; significant progress was made compared to 2% in 2003. HIV/AIDS remains under –diagnosed, many patients report late for care or not at all and some do not keep up with the care over time. Therefore World Health Organization (WHO) increased the threshold from less than 200 cell/mm3 to 350 cell/mm3.

Prevalence of HIV Infection among VCT Users and Assessment of Socio-Demographic Factors Affecting the Follow-Up Status of Clients on ART in Gondar Town, Northwest Ethiopia

Voluntary counseling and testing (VCT), for HIV infection, allows individuals to determine their HIV status and serves as a gateway for both HIV prevention and early access to Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) for sero-positive clients. However, very little is known about these profiles and HIV prevalence of VCT clients in Gondar town. A cross-sectional study design was carried out by collecting retrospective data from VCT clients’ records inprivate and government health centers (July 2005-July 2009) and ART charts (July 2004-July 2007), from government health institutions, to assess the prevalence of HIV infection among VCT users and assess socio-demographic factors affecting the follow-up status of ART clients in Gondar Town.

The Tsetse Flies’ Intestinal Microflora: A Review

Human African Trypanosomiasis is caused by trypanosomes transmitted to humans by the tsetse fly, in which they accomplish their development into their infective metacyclic form. The crucial step in trypanosome survival occurs when it invades the fly midgut where the parasite may be confronted with other bacterial gut inhabitants. The resulting interactions between the bacterial communities and the trypanosome, ingested by the fly taking a blood meal on a trypanosomeinfected host, may determine the evolvement either toward parasite establishment and the initiation of the biological cycle or its elimination. This alternative future of the trypanosome may at least partly depend on the gut microflora composition. The available data are presented in this mini-review.
