Most gastrointestinal infections are caused by viruses, but bacteria and parasites are important contributors to acute and chronic illnesses. According to the WHO, these infections kill approximately 2 million people each year: the impact of these diseases is particularly dramatic in developing countries, where diarrheal diseases cause enormous morbidity and mortality, especially in children.
The failure to identify the etiological agent of many gastrointestinal infections – again, mainly in third world countries – is one of the biggest obstacles to overcome to treat these diseases appropriately. Copan can help you with that!
