Market Overview:

Q fever is a bacterial disease caused by the Coxiella burnetii bacterium. It usually manifests in flu-like symptoms and is fairly easy to treat. However, in a small percentage of patients, Q fever may present as a chronic disease. This chronic version of the disease can be much more dangerous, with potential implications for the patient’s cardiovascular system and the possible contraction of pneumonia, hepatitis, and encephalitis. The chronic version of Q fever is thus more feared and is the reason why considerable expenses have been made to counter the condition.
