Biopharmaceutical Research Evolves Against
Infectious Diseases with Nearly 400 Medicines
and Vaccines in Testing.
Throughout history, infectious diseases
have taken a devastating toll on the lives
and well-being of people around the
world. Caused when pathogens such
as bacteria or viruses enter a body and
multiply, infectious diseases were the
leading cause of death in the United
States until the 1920s. Today, vaccines
and infectious disease treatments have
proven to be effective treatments in
many cases, but infectious diseases still
pose a very serious threat to patients.
