  1. The Burden of Parasitic Zoonoses in Nepal: A Systematic Review

    Contributor(s):: B. Devleesschauwer, A. Ale, P. Torgerson, N. Praet, C. Mairtens de Noordhout, B.D. Pandey, S.B. Pun, R. Lake, J. Vercruysse, D.D. Joshi, A.H. Havelaar, L. Duchateau, P. Dorny, N. Speybroek

    BackgroundParasitic zoonoses (PZs) pose a significant but often neglected threat to public health, especially in developing countries. In order to obtain a better understanding of their health impact, summary measures of population health may be calculated, such as the Disability-Adjusted Life...

  2. Anti-schistosoma single-domain antibody-nanoparticles conjugate: a novel tool for diagnostic and therapeutic applications

    Contributor(s):: Mohaned Abdelazim Sallam

    Nanotechnology has enthused excessive expectations in recent years, particularly in the biology and biomedical fields. Carbon-coated metallic nanomagnets reveal significant physicochemical properties, which are referred to as superparamagnetism, that when designed appropriately can be utilized to...

  3. The Control of Neglected Zoonotic Diseases in Nigeria through Animal Intervention

    Contributor(s):: D.O. Ehizibolo, P.O.Ehizibolo, E.E.Ehizibolo, M.Y. Sugun, S.E. Idachaba

    Zoonoses are a major cause of morbidity and mortality across the world and particularly in Nigeria; however, they are often neglected by primary healthcare managers and policy makers. The neglected zoonotic diseases endemic in Nigeria include Anthrax, brucellosis, Bovine Tuberculosis, Rabies,...

  4. Radio-telemetry and geographical information systems to assess urban deer zoonoses

    Contributor(s):: Karmen M. Hollis, Christopher L. Anchor, James E. Chelsvig, Dwayne R. Etter, J. P. Dubey

    Urban white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) populations can influence the epidemiology of many zoonotic diseases because they affect the distribution and abundance of pathogens and vectors. The risk of emerging zoonotic pathogens increases with human populations, as people have closer...

  5. Studies on the helminth fauna of Alaska. XXVII. The occurrence of larvae of trichinella spirals in Alaskan mammals

    Contributor(s):: Robert L. Rausch, B. B. Babero, Virginia R. Rausch, Everett L. Schiller

    In 1948 much interest in trichinosis in arctic regions was aroused, particularly by the findings of Thorborg et al. (1948), who investigated serious outbreaks occurring among the Eskimo of West Greenland during 1947. Consequently, with the founding of the Arctic Health Research Center in the...

    Introduction:Human toxocariasis is a zoonosis caused by infective larvae of Toxocara canis (Beaver, 1956) or Toxocara cati (Nagakura et al., 1990). These ascarids are commonly found in the tissues (larvae) and intestinal tract (adult worms) of dogs and cats, respectively. Infection results from...
