ITALIAN JOURNAL OF PUBLIC HEALTH - 2012 - Reducing hazards for humans from animals: emerging and re-emerging zoonoses. FACULTY OF PUBLIC HEALTH, SLOVAK MEDICAL UNIVERSITY, BRATISLAVA, 18th–20th OCTOBER 2016 REVIEWED ABSTRACTS FROM 5th SCIENTIFIC CONGRESS HELD IN BRATISLAVA. EFSA 16/12/16 Zoonoses report: Listeria infections stable but frequently reported among the elderly. European experts have noted an increasing trend of listeriosis since 2008, but they highlight that the number of affected people stabilised from 2014 to 2015.
Infections were mostly reported in people over 64 years of age. These are some of the findings of the latest annual report by EFSA and ECDC on zoonotic diseases, which also includes the latest trends on salmonellosis, campylobacteriosis, and foodborne outbreaks in the European Union. Listeriosis affected about 2,200 people in 2015, causing 270 deaths – the highest number ever reported in the EU. The proportion of cases in the over 64 age group steadily increased from 56% in 2008 to 64% in 2015. Additionally, in this period, the number of reported cases and their proportion has almost doubled in those over 84 years.

PLOS 22/05/14 An Invasive Vector of Zoonotic Disease Sustained by Anthropogenic Resources: The Raccoon Dog in Northern Europe. Abstract The raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides) is an introduced species in Europe with a continually expanding range.
Since the species is capable of affecting local ecosystems and is a vector for a number of severe zoonotic diseases, it is important to understand its food habits. Raccoon dog diet was studied in Estonia by examining the contents of 223 stomach samples collected during the coldest period of the year, August to March, in 2010–2012. The most frequently consumed food categories were anthropogenic plants (e.g. cereals, fruits; FO = 56.1%) and carrion (e.g. carcasses of artiodactyls and carnivores; FO = 48.4%). Carrion was also the only food category that was consumed significantly more frequently by raccoon dogs exhibiting symptoms of sarcoptic mange than by uninfected animals.

Trends in Europe for food- and waterborne... The food- and waterborne diseases and zoonoses content for the 2014 Annual Epidemiological Report provides a snapshot of the epidemiological situation in Europe.
The report features data from 2012 and gives an overview of the epidemiology of each disease, some of which are included below: Campylobacter cases increased in the five-year period between 2008 and 2012 but decreased slightly in 2012. Human campylobacteriosis has remained the most commonly reported gastrointestinal disease in Europe since 2005. Handling, preparation and consumption of broiler meat has been estimated to account for 20%–41% of human campylobacteriosis cases. Salmonellosis rates continued to decrease with a significant five-year decreasing trend in the EU and decreasing trends in 17 EU/EEA countries. PLOS 23/07/13 Identification of Hotspots in the European Union for the Introduction of Four Zoonotic Arboviroses by Live Animal.
Live animal trade is considered a major mode of introduction of viruses from enzootic foci into disease-free areas.
Due to societal and behavioural changes, some wild animal species may nowadays be considered as pet species. The species diversity of animals involved in international trade is thus increasing. This could benefit pathogens that have a broad host range such as arboviruses. The objective of this study was to analyze the risk posed by live animal imports for the introduction, in the European Union (EU), of four arboviruses that affect human and horses: Eastern and Western equine encephalomyelitis, Venezuelan equine encephalitis and Japanese encephalitis.

The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) took over the funding and production of the journal in March with the result that, for the first time since its launch in 1995, the whole editorial team began operating from a single location. In the transition phase, we received enormous support from the former teams in Paris and London for which we are grateful. Over the year, we have received continuous support from a great number of public health and infectious diseases experts across Europe and beyond, as well as our colleagues here at the ECDC and in the European Commission.
