Question Description

Assessment of Current Technologies and Treatments for Emerging Infectious Diseases: Are we prepared?

• Select and apply your knowledge of cellular and molecular processes and current laboratory techniques and therapies to effectively propose a plausible effort to mitigate the next outbreak.
Emerging infectious diseases have become a global public health concern. Diseases that were once endemic to other countries such as Zika virus, Ebola virus and other pathogens have now become resident agents of infection in the U.S. Research and compare the current technologies and treatments that are currently available to detect these agents. Also consider reported disease outbreaks that are currently trending not necessarily in the U.S. but abroad. Ask are we prepared against these agents of infection and if not what technologies and treatments do we need?
Include three pathogens to conduct your assessment for detection capabilities and treatment- two pathogens that have caused epidemics in the U.S. and one that has caused an epidemic currently outside the U.S.

Stage 1: Develop and submit abstract by 04.19.19.
Stage 2 Final draft of project due 05.10.19. Follow the requirements for the technology assessment.
****Include the following information in your group project research paper:****
Abstract- a short summary of the entire assessment
Purpose statement- provide a brief summary as to why the assessment is being conducted
Introduction- include impact statement. Why is this important?
Supporting factors
1. Provide background information on the selected pathogens of interest-
a. Include the country of origin, first reported case, first reported death, number of reported cases, number of deaths (All three pathogens should have this information)
b. Include first reported case in the US, first reported death, number of reported cases, number of deaths
2. Provide background information on the technology or research used to the detect each pathogen
a. Include vendor (the company that makes the device or application)
b. Include the institution or company that’s conducting the research and what they’re working on
c. Identify interested parties (who’s interested in acquiring the technology/ application or research?)
3. Provide background information on treatment or therapeutic
a. Include the vendor
b. Include the institution or company that’s conducting the research and what they’re working on
c. Identify interested parties (who’s interested in acquiring the drug/ therapeutic or research?)
4. Compare and contrast the current technology/ application/ research and treatment/therapeutic/ research. Can they be modified or if there’s nothing available what is needed? Make suggestions.
a. Make a table to include pathogens of interest and match to applicable technology/research and treatment/therapeutic/research
5. Conclusion
Research Paper 5 pages excluding references page
12 point Font
1 inch margins
Single spaced
Minimum 20 references

Abstract
Virally caused diseases are prevalent worldwide, and some have known cures, however, not all.
Therefore, it is not a guarantee that we have a safe future in terms of health. The CDC is one of
the many government institutions that are responsible for ensuring public health is good. The
situation has been challenged by some viruses recently that have caused a crisis in some countries
including the USA. Ebola for example that was a significant crisis in both West African nations
and also here in the USA. The virus stimulated further research and it is no longer a threat as better
methods have been developed to curb the disease. In my perspective, I think that the world is very
prepared for such future occurrences. The other virus that has been an issue in the country is
influenza. The illness is also respiratory-related and makes it impossible to breathe or conduct any
strenuous activities. In short, it renders people helpless and leads to eventual death. It has a history
of up to the 19th century and caused severe depopulation in Europe and other parts of the world. A
cure is now available; therefore this too is not a threat to human existence. Another disease is
Tuberculosis. This bacteria has almost similar effects as influenza but has more severe symptoms.
The bacteria host itself in the lungs and therefore spread very fast through coughs. It also has a
history in medieval times and prior. It is mainly controlled by living in ventilated rooms and also
vaccinations. This is because these conditions reduce the chances of spreading as the bacteria dies
in contact with light. The other virus reviewed is the Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). This
virus has no cure yet, but control drugs are available. The most common transmission method is
through sexua...

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
