Public health risks associated with food]borne parasites

Abstract

Parasites are important food]borne pathogens. Their complex lifecycles, varied transmission routes, and prolonged periods between infection and symptoms mean that the public health burden and relative importance of different transmission routes are often difficult to assess. Furthermore, there are challenges in detection and diagnostics, and variations in reporting. A Europe]focused ranking exercise, using multicriteria decision analysis, identified potentially food]borne parasites of importance, and that are currently not routinely controlled in food. These are Cryptosporidium spp., Toxoplasma gondii and Echinococcus spp. Infection with these parasites in humans and animals, or their occurrence in food, is not notifiable in all Member States. This Opinion reviews current methods for detection, identification and tracing of these parasites in relevant foods, reviews literature on food]borne pathways, examines information on their occurrence and persistence in foods, and investigates possible control measures along the food chain. The differences between these three parasites are substantial, but for all there is a paucity of well]established, standardised, validated methods that can be applied across the range of relevant foods. Furthermore, the prolonged period between infection and clinical symptoms (from several days for Cryptosporidium to years for Echinococcus spp.) means that source attribution studies are very difficult. Nevertheless, our knowledge of the domestic animal lifecycle (involving dogs and livestock) for Echinoccocus granulosus means that this parasite is controllable. For Echinococcus multilocularis, for which the lifecycle involves wildlife (foxes and rodents), control would be expensive and complicated, but could be achieved in targeted areas with sufficient commitment and resources. Quantitative risk assessments have been described for Toxoplasma in meat. However, for T. gondii and Cryptosporidium as faecal contaminants, development of validated detection methods, including survival/infectivity assays and consensus molecular typing protocols, are required for the development of quantitative risk assessments and efficient control measures. ...

Pet Tales: Jimmy V grants to treat cancer in dogs and people [A One Health Approach]

Nov 23, 2018

The School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania is one of five veterinary schools receiving research grants to work with cancer centers that treat people.

Called canine comparative oncology, the field explores treatments that will have better success and less toxicity for dogs and people, according to a news release from The V Foundation for Cancer Research (www.jimmyv.org), which was founded by Jim Valvano, the late North Carolina State basketball coach.

Cancer research and clinical studies give researchers cause for optimism, said Nicola Mason, a board-certified veterinary internist and immunologist  at PennVet in Philadelphia. “The revolution has started.” ...

Description

Healthcare professionals are important partners for the advancement of environmental public health. On the front-line of healthcare delivery, clinicians, pediatricians, nurses, and many other professionals play an important role in providing their patients and the communities they serve with valuable environmental health information. However, studies have shown that there is a knowledge gap. This webinar will focus on the importance of working with health professionals to build their environmental health literacy and address environmental health issues. Presenters will discuss strategies they are using to fill these knowledge gaps and improve environmental public health. Speakers: (1) Nicholas Newman, D.O., M.S., Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and (2) Mark Miller, M.D., M.P.H., University of California, San Francisco.
