Some serological methods are extremely costly, although when commonly used, such as with the "strep test", they can be inexpensive. [9] Complex serological techniques have been developed into what are known as Immunoassays. Acute vascular compromise from trauma or embolic occlusion leads to tissue infarction and may progress to infected vascular gangrene if the appropriate microorganisms gain access to the devitalized tissues.

Aaron’s work involves the management of projects and assays involved in drug discovery for tuberculosis. Any unconfirmed news about a disease from any other source or field worker must be promptly investigated to effectively control the disease before its outbreak. Current examples to illustrate this include malaria, which has been historically diagnosed in returning visitors and tourists from zones of endemicity to zones of nonendemicity, or linked to returning migrants or rare examples of transmission outside of zones of endemicity [ 20 ]; Hansen disease (leprosy), a condition in which migrants and foreign-born populations make up the majority of national case loads in immigration-receiving nations such as Canada [ 21 ]; and HIV infection/AIDS, associated with a profound global disparity in its prevalence and occurrence, combined with growing immigration and population mobility patterns, resulting in high rates of HIV infection in foreign-born populations.
