Abstract:
In the combat against diseases two approaches are generally applied – “prevention” and “treatment”. When dealing with infectious diseases there is no exception. Vaccination is a powerful immunological tool for the prevention of infectious diseases, and immunotherapy using hyperimmune globulins, though rarely applied when compared to the use of vaccines, is also effective for the treatment of some infections. The use of antibiotics, however, is mainly targeted for treatment of infectious diseases caused by bacteria, while prophylactic application for prevention of infections is less commonly used. This presentation will discuss the applications of vaccines and antibiotics, with emphasis on the two approaches of prevention and treatment.
