    “The One Health concept stresses the ecological relationships between human, animal, and environmental health. Much of the One Health literature to date has examined the transfer of pathogens from animals (e.g., emerging zoonoses) and the environment to humans. The recent rapid development of technology to perform high throughput DNA sequencing has expanded this view to include the study of entire microbial communities. Applying the One Health approach to the microbiome allows for consideration of both pathogenic and non-pathogenic microbial transfer between humans, animals, and the environment. We review recent research studies of such transmission, the molecular and statistical methods being used, and the implications of such microbiome relationships for human health. Our review identified evidence that the environmental microbiome as well as the microbiome of animals in close contact can affect both the human microbiome and human health outcomes. Such microbiome transfer can take place in the household as well as the workplace setting. Urbanization of built environments leads to changes in the environmental microbiome which could be a factor in human health. While affected by environmental exposures, the human microbiome also can modulate the response to environmental factors through effects on metabolic and immune function. Better understanding of these microbiome interactions between humans, animals, and the shared environment will require continued development of improved statistical and ecological modeling approaches. Such enhanced understanding could lead to innovative interventions to prevent and manage a variety of human health and disease states.  ... "

From Forests to Cities, UC Davis Works to Prevent the Next Great Disease Outbreak

 By Andy Fell on September 17, 2018 in Human & Animal Health

Please read full article at https://www.ucdavis.edu/health/news/preventing-the-next-pandemic

“… Training for the future

Heading off future pandemics will require collaboration among physicians, veterinarians, scientists and public health experts who are grounded in the complexities of disease in a changing world. Two UC Davis programs aim to address that need.

RxOne Health is a monthlong summer program run by a collaboration between UC Davis’ One Health Institute, School of Medicine and College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, together with the University of Rwanda and Sokoine University of Tanzania. Now in its third year, RxOne Health brings medical, veterinary and doctoral students to work and study with local students in developing countries, building both their own skills and local expertise. Participants meet with physicians, farmers, veterinarians, midwives, government officials, and other local health and science professionals.  …”


How can a One Health approach mitigate the most prevalent health risks today? - SCITECH EUROPA Quarterly Issue 28, September 2018 - Tuesday, September 11, 2018

Scitech EuropaSciTech Europa

The SciTech Europa Quarterly digital publication brings together the key voices in the European scientific community and the leading trends in science, research and innovation. In an increasingly competitive world, scientific enterprise is the lynchpin of collaboration, which drives human endeavour and addresses key challenges for the benefit of citizens in Europe and around the world.

 

How can a One Health approach mitigate the most prevalent health risks today?

The One Health approach encompasses a range of programmes, policies, legislation and research which enable improved communication and health outcomes across healthcare for animals, humans and the environment. Forging professional bonds between physicians, veterinarians, dentists, nurses and other scientific and health- and environment-related disciplines, One Health has become pertinent in key issues such as food safety, the control of zoonoses, and the battle against antibiotic resistance. ...

One Health: Vision Loss Treatment for Dogs May Benefit Humans

https://s3.amazonaws.com/hcplive/v1_media/_image/printButton.png

A novel gene therapy has been developed to treat one of the most common forms of retinitis pigmentosa, a disease that causes vision loss in both dogs and humans.

By Amanda Carrozza 

A novel gene therapy proven to halt vision loss in dogs is believed to have One Health potential. The scientists who developed the therapy, which treats a condition that causes blindness called autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa (adRP), are hopeful that their strategy may one day be used to delay or halt vision loss in people with the same disease. Retinitis pigmentosa, the most common inherited form of blindness, affects an estimate 60,000 to 100,000 people in the United States.

“We’ve developed and shown proof-of-concept for a gene therapy for one of the most common forms of retinitis pigmentosa,” said William Beltran, DVM, PhD, a professor of ophthalmology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine and lead author of the study. The group’s study has been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

"Dawn Sievert, associate director of antimicrobial resistance, Division of Foodborne, Waterborne and Environmental diseases at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, gave a little insight on how the CDC views microbial resistance—their perspective, interactions and collaboration. The One Health Initiative is how the CDC is dealing with antimicrobial resistance."

There is compelling evidence that our planet is in peril. Human, wildlife and domesticated animal populations face growing health risks from such things as climate change, population growth, zoonotic pandemics and increased urbanization. These health risks are impacted by local and global environmental factors.

One Health is a collaborative effort of multiple disciplines working locally, nationally, and globally to attain sustainable optimal health and well-being for humans and animals. It is the intersection and inextricable link between human health and animal health, and the connections between health and natural and man-made environments.  For many individuals, implementing One Health concepts and their related socioeconomic impacts is a cultural, behavioral and paradigm shift.   Many One Health concepts are driven by socioeconomic issues which include, but are not limited to:  population growth; nutritional, agricultural, and trade practices; globalization; shift in land use; accelerated urbanization; deforestation; encroachment on wildlife; and climate change.

Now is the time for academic institutions to step forward in leading new One Health initiatives to create impactful, relevant research-driven solutions and train the next generation of innovative leaders. One Health concepts are ideally suited to provide robust, system-wide health-related solutions that the global society will need and expect. ...
