Nowadays, industrialization caused a new sort of infectious diseases which had not been noticed before. Most of them can be included into category of food-borne zoonosis, for example, Salmonella, Escherichia coli O157: H7, Campylobacter, Cyclospora cayetanensis, and new variant creutzfeldt-Jakob's disease (nvCJD). Development of diagnostic technology revealed the causative pathogen of many diseases which used to be regarded as non-infectious. The management of opportunistic infections in the increasing population of immunocompromised hosts accompanied with the progress in transplantation became a new challenge to the clinical field.
