About this Research Topic
Past EBV infection is associated with lymphomas, and may also result in certain allergic and autoimmune diseases. Infections have also been associated with chronic inflammatory diseases, such as Celiac and Crohn's disease, allergic diseases such as Asthma, hematologic and cardiovascular diseases, such as atherosclerosis and Kawasaki among others. The genomic, proteomic, metabolomic and/or immunomic links between infectious processes and the host, leading to the development/triggering/enhancement of the above mentioned diseases and other apparently “non-infectious” diseases is critical for advancing our understanding of pathogen/host interactions.
This Research Topic is open to original and review articles on studies connecting infectious processes to the development of apparently “non-infectious” acute, sub-acute or chronic diseases, with a particular focus where possible on potentially relevant links to childhood infection.
Keywords: Bacterial Infections, Non-Infectious, Viral and Bacterial Infections
