 Synonyms & Historicals
Mass Drug Administration .
Mass Administration .
Drug Administration, Mass .
Mass Administrations .
Mass Drug Administrations .
Administration of a medication to at-risk individuals in a population without individual diagnosis. It is often used in order to treat, control, and/or prevent spread of often endemic DISEASE OUTBREAKS such as NEGLECTED DISEASES in high disease burden areas. .
Individual Diseases .
Individual Illnesses .
Morbid state characterized by an individual's reaction pattern, depending on bio-typological, cultural, temperamental and miasmatic aspects. .
Epidemics .
Epidemic .
Sudden outbreaks of a disease in a country or region not previously recognized in that area, or a rapid increase in the number of new cases of a previous existing endemic disease. Epidemics can also refer to outbreaks of disease in animal or plant populations. .
Endophenotypes .
Endophenotype .
Measurable biological (physiological, biochemical, and anatomical features), behavioral (psychometric pattern) or cognitive markers that are found more often in individuals with a disease than in the general population. Because many endophenotypes are present before the disease onset and in individuals with heritable risk for disease such as unaffected family members, they can be used to help diagnose and search for causative genes. .
Prognosis .
Prognostic Factors .
Factor, Prognostic .
Factors, Prognostic .
Prognoses .
Prognostic Factor .
A prediction of the probable outcome of a disease based on a individual's condition and the usual course of the disease as seen in similar situations. .
Disease .
Diseases .
Illness .
Disease Concept Evolution .
A definite pathologic process with a characteristic set of signs and symptoms. It may affect the whole body or any of its parts, and its etiology, pathology, and prognosis may be known or unknown. .
Endemic Diseases .
Disease, Endemic .
Diseases, Endemic .
Endemic Disease .
The constant presence of diseases or infectious agents within a given geographic area or population group. It may also refer to the usual prevalence of a given disease with such area or group. It includes holoendemic and hyperendemic diseases. A holoendemic disease is one for which a high prevalent level of infection begins early in life and affects most of the child population, leading to a state of equilibrium such that the adult population shows evidence of the disease much less commonly than do children (malaria in many communities is a holoendemic disease). A hyperendemic disease is one that is constantly present at a high incidence and/or prevalence rate and affects all groups equally. (Last, A Dictionary of Epidemiology, 3d ed, p53, 78, 80) .

Disease Costs .
The personal cost of disease which may be economic, social, or psychological. The cost of illness may be reflected in absenteeism, productivity, response to treatment, peace of mind, or QUALITY OF LIFE. It differs from HEALTH CARE COSTS, the societal cost of providing services related to the delivery of health care. .

Investigation of Disease Outbreaks .
