Ferric C. Fang, MD

The Fang laboratory studies a broad range of topics in bacterial pathogenesis, with a particular focus on phagocyte-pathogen interactions.

Salmonellosis

Salmonellosis is an infection with Salmonella bacteria. Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, vomiting, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection. In most cases, the illness lasts four to seven days, and most people recover without treatment. In some cases, though, the diarrhea may be so severe, the patient becomes dangerously dehydrated and must be hospitalized.
