The natural history of disease is the course a disease takes in individual people from its pathological onset "inception" until its resolution either through complete recovery or eventual death. Natural history of disease is one of the major elements of descriptive epidemiology. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Quaternary Prevention: Need of the Hour
Understanding the natural history of a disease is an important prerequisite for designing studies that assess the impact of interventions, both chemotherapeutic and environmental, on the initiation and expression of the condition. Identification of biomarkers that mark disease progression may provide important indicators for drug targets and surrogate outcomes for clinical trials. However, collecting and visualizing data on natural history is challenging in part because disease processes are complex and evolve in different chronological periods for different subjects. Various epidemiological designs are used to elucidate components of the natural history process. We briefly discuss statistical issues, limitations and challenges associated with various epidemiological designs. Of course, scientists and policy-makers are usually acutely interested in what factors, including interventions, might alter the natural history of disease initiation and progression.

The process begins with exposure or accumulation of factors capable of causing disease. Natural History of Disease: Natural History of Disease As these studies are costly and laborious, understanding of the natural history of disease is largely based on other epidemiological studies, such as cross-sectional and retrospective studies, undertaken in different population settings.
Three broad categories of determinants of human behavior will be discussed in this study session and you will have an opportunity to learn about the influence of these factors in determining human behavior. Prevention, as it relates to health, is really about avoiding disease before it starts. It has been defined as the plans for, and the measures taken, to prevent the onset of a disease or other health problem before the occurrence of the undesirable health event. There are three distinct levels of prevention. Primary prevention —those preventive measures that prevent the onset of illness or injury before the disease process begins. Secondary prevention —those preventive measures that lead to early diagnosis and prompt treatment of a disease, illness or injury to prevent more severe problems developing.
Lesson 1: Introduction to Epidemiology
Natural history of disease refers to the progression of a disease process in an individual over time, in the absence of treatment. It is now recognized that it may take 10 years or more for AIDS to develop after seroconversion. Image Description. Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Principles of epidemiology, 2nd ed. Atlanta: U. Department of Health and Human Services;
Department of Community Medicine, Smt. Prevention is primarily categorized as Primordial, Primary, Secondary and Tertiary. This editorial article discusses need of Quaternary prevention in current scenario of clinical practice. Preventive measures can be applied at any stage along the natural history of the disease with the goal of preventing further progression of the condition. Levels of the prevention are mainly categorized as primordial, primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention. Over the years, the concept of prevention has undergone significant changes.
If you create an account, you can set up a personal learning profile on the site. The natural history of a disease is also referred to as the course of the disease, or its development and progression ; these terms can be used interchangeably. The natural history of a communicable disease refers to the sequence of events that happen one after another, over a period of time, in a person who is not receiving treatment. Recognising these events helps you understand how particular interventions at different stages could prevent or control the disease. You will learn about this in detail in Study Session 2.
Natural history of disease refers to the progression of a disease process in an to individual and are influenced by preventive and therapeutic measures.
EPHO5: Disease prevention, including early detection of illness
До поворота оставалось еще триста метров, а такси от него отделяло всего несколько машин. Беккер понимал, что через несколько секунд его застрелят или собьют, и смотрел вперед, пытаясь найти какую-нибудь лазейку, но шоссе с обеих сторон обрамляли крутые, покрытые гравием склоны. Прозвучал еще один выстрел. Он принял решение.
Когда Хейл перестал на нее давить, Сьюзан почувствовала, что ее онемевшие ноги ожили. Еще толком не отдавая себе отчета в своих действиях и повинуясь инстинкту, она резким движением согнула ноги и со всей силы ударила Хейла коленом в промежность, ощутив, как ее коленные чашечки впились в его мягкие незащищенные ткани. Хейл взвыл от боли, и все его тело сразу же обмякло.
Что. Скажи. Сьюзан словно отключилась от Хейла и всего окружающего ее хаоса. Энсей Танкадо - это Северная Дакота… Сьюзан попыталась расставить все фрагменты имеющейся у нее информации по своим местам.
