Despite the common nature of group A streptococcal (GAS) infections, the carrier state of this organism is not well understood. In this article, we review the historical and recent research on the definition, epidemiology, and pathogenesis of the GAS carrier by:

    Infectious disease, in medicine, a process caused by an agent, often a type of microorganism, that impairs a person’s many cases, infectious disease can be spread from person to person, either directly (e.g., via skin contact) or indirectly (e.g., via contaminated food or water).. An infectious disease can differ from simple infection, which is the invasion of and replication in. The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) considers GAS carriers at low risk for developing complications and spreading infection to close contacts. 2 The IDSA practice guidelines recommend against routine screening for and treatment of GAS carriage except under the circumstances (2 through 7) outlined in the evidence-based answer.

    infectious diseases: caused by some pathogen (virus, bacteria, fungus, etc) eg. malaria, TB, HIV, pneumonia, etc bacteria and viruses cause the majority of human infectious diseases (and some protists and fungi) some of these infectious diseases are transmitted directly from person to person: in air (cough) foods and drinks stdirect contact.
