    Abstract:   From article (free full-text available): Emerging infectious diseases have been creeping up the research agenda since at least 1992, when the US Institute of Medicine defined them as infectious diseases that have recently increased in incidence or geographical range, recently been discovered, or are caused by newly evolved pathogens. Diseases that have recently moved into new species can be added to this defining list. More recently, the emergence of diseases with high case fatality rates?such a...

    Searchable Keywords: Epidemiology Infectious diseases Methods Outbreaks Veterinary medicine Zoonoses 
    Abstract:   Abstract (online abstract only): Domestic and wild animal population movements are important in the spread of disease. There are many recent examples of disease spread that have occurred as a result of intentional movements of livestock or wildlife. Understanding the volume of these movements and the risks associated with them is fundamental in elucidating the epidemiology of these diseases, some of which might entail zoonotic risks. The importance of the worldwide animal trade is reviewed and t...
    Animals as Sentinels of Bioterrorism Agents Show Full Record 1125 Bookmark and Share

    Searchable Keywords: Bioterrorism Domestic animal health Public health Sentinel surveillance Surveillance (monitoring) Wildlife diseases 
    Abstract:   From abstract (free full-text online): We conducted a systematic review of the scientific literature from 1966 to 2005 to determine whether animals could provide early warning of a bioterrorism attack, serve as markers for ongoing exposure risk, and amplify or propagate a bioterrorism outbreak. We found evidence that, for certain bioterrorism agents, pets, wildlife, or livestock could provide early warning and that for other agents, humans would likely manifest symptoms before illness could be d...

    Abstract:   From introduction: Avian influenza is a viral disease that can cause sickness and death among poultry. On rare occasions, avian influenza virus can be transmitted to poultry workers or others who come in contact with infected poultry or contact contaminated surfaces. Examples of such workers who could be at risk include poultry growers and their employees; service technicians of poultry processing companies; caretakers, layer barn workers, and chick movers at egg production facilities; and work...

    Abstract:   From summary (free full-text available): Though bushmeat is often part of the diet of rural African communities, studies are beginning to indicate considerable negative health implications connected with the processing and consumption of wildlife. Reports confirm the vulnerability of nonhuman primates to the Ebola virus during outbreaks in a variety of African sites. Evidence of simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) infection has been reported for 26 different species of African nonhuman primates,...

    Abstract:   From abstract (online abstract only): First we remind general considerations concerning biodiversity on earth and particularly the loss of genetic biodiversity that seems irreversible whether its origin is directly or indirectly linked to human activities. Urgent and considerable efforts must be made from now on to cataloge, understand, preserve, and enhance the value of biodiversity while ensuring food safety and human and animal health. Ambitious integrated and multifield research programs mus...
