Evolution of STDs

The evolution of the STD pathogens are caused by the selective pressures of the host-immune response, modern drugs, vaccines or by microbial competition. Through evolutionary phase, a pathogen can become more or less virulent. The phylogeny, epidemiology and origin studies on sexually transmitted diseases provides valuable data on the genetic transition traits in both host and pathogen. The evolutionary study of the disease-causing pathogen provides the disease transmission and diversity among the human population. The clinical epidemiology and phylogenetic study paves way for new insights for the development of drugs and therapies against the multiple drug resistance.
