Cholera and Diarrhoeal diseases continue to be a scourge of mankind, especially in the developing countries. One of the successful approaches to the control of diarrhoeal diseases is the use of mass vaccinations, but there are uncertainties about the effectiveness of old vaccines. Unfortunately, these vaccines have limited applications as the organism changes its character occasionally, rendering the vaccine ineffective. Although better sanitation and improved standards of living are still the best solutions to combat the endemic form of this disease, these are still far away goals in many countries.

Diarrhoeal Diseases: Research Perspectives highlights the new and emerging approaches to tackle these ancient diseases. Contributing authors discuss progress made in mapping of the genome Vibrio cholerae and the prospects of developing effective and specific vaccines. These articles indicate the direction of advanced research and will be valuable source material for all those interested in the management of these dreaded diseases.
