"One health": the potential of closer cooperation between human and animal health in Africa. (Bovine tuberculosis in Ethiopia.)
Contributor(s):: Zinsstag, J., Tanner, M.
Emerging zoonoses affect livestock and humans, which calls for closer cooperation between animal and public health. Conceptually ideal, such cooperation is difficult to achieve and the causative agents of outbreaks are often confused. A lack of awareness may very likely be due to limited capacity...

A "One Health" Approach to Address Emerging Zoonoses: The HALI Project in Tanzania
Contributor(s):: Jonna A. K. Mazet, Deana L. Clifford, Peter B. Coppolillo, Anil B. Deolalikar, Jon D. Erickson, Rudovick R. Kazwala
Every day thousands of children and adults die from underdiagnosed diseases that have arisen at the human–animal–environment interface, especially diarrheal and respiratory diseases in developing countries. Explosive human population growth and environmental changes have resulted...

A framework for the study of zoonotic disease emergence and its drivers: spillover of bat pathogens as a case study
Contributor(s):: James L. N. Wood, Melissa Leach, Linda Waldman, Hayley MacGregor, Anthony R. Fooks, Kate E. Jones, Olivier Restif, Dina Dechmann, David T. S. Hayman, Kate S. Baker, Alison J. Peel, Alexandra O. Kamins, Jakob Fahr, Yaa Ntiamoa-Baidu, Richard Suu-Ire, Robert F. Breiman, Jonathan H. Epstein, Hume E. Field, Andrew A. Cunningham
Many serious emerging zoonotic infections have recently arisen from bats, including Ebola, Marburg, SARS-coronavirus, Hendra, Nipah, and a number of rabies and rabies-related viruses, consistent with the overall observation that wildlife are an important source of emerging zoonoses for the human...

Contributor(s):: E. Fèvre
This presentation discusses zoonoses, pathogens, and the aims of a study taking plave in Kenya to address the livestock-human interface.

Posted by Megan Kendall
Dr. John New unexpectedly passed away on October 15, 2013 and will be sorely missed throughout the human-animal bond community. Dr. New had been a faculty member of the University of Tennessee’s...
A network model of H5N1 avian influenza transmission dynamics in domestic cats
Contributor(s):: Ayyalasomayajula, S., DeLaurentis, D. A., Moore, G. E., Glickman, L. T.
Naturally occurring cases of influenza in cats owing to the H5N1 strain have been reported in several countries. A cat reservoir of H5N1 in the United States could provide an environment for zoonotic disease spread to humans. This scenario was the impetus to develop a model to study potential...
A Quantitative Prioritisation of Human and Domestic Animal Pathogens in Europe
Contributor(s):: K. Marie McIntyre, Christian Setzkorn, Philip J. Hepworth, Serge Morand, Andrew P. Morse, Matthew Baylis
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...
A seroepidemiological study of canine zoonoses among persons occupationally exposed to dogs
out of 5 stars
Contributor(s):: Whitney Sue Krueger, Tara C. Smith (adviser)
Zoonotic diseases continue to emerge and threaten both human and animal health. Overcrowded shelters and breeding kennels create the perfect environment for amplified infectious disease transmission among dogs and present a critical opportunity for zoonotic pathogens to emerge and threaten...
A study of the interactions of human, pig, and the human pork tapeworm
Contributor(s):: Nemeth, D. J.
The role of pigsty-privies on Cheju Island, South Korea, in the transmission of helminth parasites from pig to man is discussed with particular reference to Taenia solium. It appears that pigsty-privies reduce the incidence of intestinal nematode infections in the human population but not that of...
A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of the Campylobacter spp. Prevalence and Concentration in Household Pets and Petting Zoo Animals for Use in Exposure Assessments
| Contributor(s):: Katarina D. M. Pintar, Tanya Christidis, M. Kate Thomas, Maureen Anderson, Andrea Nesbitt, Jessica Keithlin, Barbara Marshall, Frank Pollari
Animal contact is a potential transmission route for campylobacteriosis, and both domestic household pet and petting zoo exposures have been identified as potential sources of exposure. Research has typically focussed on the prevalence, concentration, and transmission of zoonoses from farm...
