INTECH - AVRIL 2012 - Zoonosis. Au sommaire:Endoparasites with Zoonotic Potential in Domesticated Dogs
Edited by Jacob Lorenzo-Morales, ISBN 978-953-51-0479-7, 448 pages, Publisher: InTech, Chapters published April 04, 2012 under CC BY 3.0 licenseDOI: 10.5772/2125 Edited Volume Zoonotic diseases are mainly caused by bacterial, viral or parasitic agents although "unconventional agents" such as prions could also be involved in causing zoonotic diseases. Many of the zoonotic diseases are a public health concern but also affect the production of food of animal origin thus they could cause problems in international trade of animal-origin goods. A major factor contributing to the emergence of new zoonotic pathogens in human populations is increased contact between humans and animals. This book provides an insight on zoonosis and both authors and the editor hope that the work compiled in it would help to raise awareness and interest in this field. It should also help researchers, clinicians and other readers in their research and clinical usage.

HORSETALK 16/11/12 Rare human parasite found in US horse for first time By on Nov 16, 2012 in News A rare and potentially fatal parasite never before found in North America has been identified in a Florida horse. University of Florida veterinarians identified the parasite, called Leishmania siamensis, in the summer of 2011. UF veterinarian Sarah Reuss, VMD, and colleagues have identified a rare, potentially fatal species of parasite in a Florida horse. This particular parasite species has previously been found only in Thailand and parts of Europe. No Leishmania infections of any species had been previously reported in a horse native to the United States.

INTECH - MARS 2012 - Au sommaire: Leptospirosis: Epidemiologic Factors, Pathophysiological and Immunopathogenic Edited by Alfonso J. Rodriguez-Morales, ISBN 978-953-51-0274-8, 576 pages, Publisher: InTech, Chapters published March 16, 2012 under CC BY 3.0 licenseDOI: 10.5772/1335 Edited Volume Tropical Medicine has emerged and remained as an important discipline for the study of diseases endemic in the tropic, particularly those of infectious etiology. Emergence and reemergence of many tropical pathologies have recently aroused the interest of many fields of the study of tropical medicine, even including new infectious agents. Then evidence-based information in the field and regular updates are necessary. Current Topics in Tropical Medicine presents an updated information on multiple diseases and conditions of interest in the field.

Journal of Venomous Animals and Toxins including Tropical Diseases 2014, 20:5 Evaluation of canine and feline leishmaniasis by the association of blood culture, immunofluorescent antibody test and polymerase chain reaction Blood culture, IFAT and PCR for Leishmania spp Of the analyzed canine blood cultures from Botucatu, three (6%) were positive and forty-seven (94%) negative. But among cats, two samples (4%) were positive and 48 (96%) negative. CRESA - OCT 2011 - Elimination of bovine tuberculosis has been heterogeneous in Spain Despite control campaigns carried out since 1956, Bovine tuberculosis eradication has not yet been achieved and prevalence has remained between 1.6% and 1.8%. Researchers from the CReSA and UAB studied the success of these campaigns in Spain and concluded that the elimination pattern was not homogeneous throughout Spain and the ratio of elimination was different among zones. Relative risk of being positive in 2008

JOURNAL OF PAKISTAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION Vol. 60, No. 12, December 2010 1031 Brucellosis in a high risk occupational group: serop Abstract Objectives: To estimate Brucella seropositivity among slaughterhouse workers of Lahore district and to elucidate risk factors associated with seropositivity to Brucella.Method: During the year 2008, a cross-sectional study was conducted in four slaughterhouses of Lahore district. A sample of 360 workers was selected from these slaughterhouses through stratified random sampling on proportional basis. Korean J Parasitol. 2013 Oct;51(5):545-549. An Autochthonous Case of Canine Visceral Leishmaniasis in Korea Leishmaniasis is a group of infectious diseases that affect people and domestic and wild animals worldwide and are caused by species of the genus Leishmania, transmitted by sandflies. About 30 species of Leishmania infect humans as well as domestic and wild animals in 88 countries. Dogs act as a reservoir host of the disease for human infections; they are considered to be the reservoir for Leishmania infantum infection in areas including Portugal, the Mediterranean basin, Central and South America, the Middle East, and China [1].

DG SANCO 07/10/10 food safety - Task Force for monitoring disease eradication in the member states [Expand All] Submission of eradication and control programmes Standard requirements for applications are listed in the Annexes - Decision 2008/425/EC, amended by Decision 2012/282/EC Standard format: Annex 1 FAO 25/11/09 Pathways to Success: Brucellosis Control Programme in Tajikistan Pathways to Success: Brucellosis Control Programme in Tajikistan Programme objective Brucellosis is an infectious disease of humans and animals caused by contact withdifferent species ofbacteriacalled Brucella. Thesebacteria infect cattle, goats, camels, dogs, pigs, yaks, buffaloes, and some marine mammals. Humans can easily be infected through contact with birth fluids and placenta or foetus of infected animals, and by eating or drinking un-pasteurized milk or cheeses.

PLOS 19/08/14 A Quantitative Prioritisation of Human and Domestic Animal Pathogens in Europe Abstract Disease or pathogen risk prioritisations aid understanding of infectious agent impact within surveillance or mitigation and biosecurity work, but take significant development. Previous work has shown the H-(Hirsch-)index as an alternative proxy. We present a weighted risk analysis describing infectious pathogen impact for human health (human pathogens) and well-being (domestic animal pathogens) using an objective, evidence-based, repeatable approach; the H-index. This study established the highest H-index European pathogens.
