Animal Influenza Virus Infections in Humans: A Commentary

Borkenhagen LK, Salman MD, Ma M-Juan, Gray GC, Animal Influenza Virus Infections in Humans: A Commentary, International Journal of Infectious Diseases (2019), doi: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijid.2019.08.002

Abstract

Here we review evidence for influenza A viruses (IAVs) moving from swine, avian, feline, equine, and canine species to infect humans. We review case reports, sero-epidemiological, archeo-epidemiological, environmental, and historical studies and consider trends in livestock farming. Although this focused review is not systematic, the aggregated data point to industrialized swine farming as the most likely source of future pandemic viruses, yet IAV surveillance on such farms is remarkably sparse. We recommend increased biosafety and biosecurity training for farm administrators and swine workers with One Health-oriented virus surveillance throughout industrialized farming and meat production lines. Collaborative partnerships with human medical researchers could aid in efforts to mitigate emerging virus threats by offering new surveillance and diagnostic technologies to livestock farming industries.

Veterinarians Merged with Physician Educations: Past and Present Combined into One Individual “One Health”  

 

Although veterinary medicine and human medicine are viewed separately, training of veterinarians bears a strong resemblance to training of physicians. The two disciplines share the same fields of science with some differences in the content and the covered species. 

Historically, individuals who received dual training have greatly influenced the development of general medicine. Dr. Bruce Kaplan, the co-founding member of the One Health Initiative team, and Dr. Steven W. Atwood, member of the One Health Initiative Advisory Board, published a paper that advances the idea of establishing unique DVM/VMD - MD/DO programs in the U.S. and internationally. 

The authors present several contributions of previous and current dual-trained professionals to illustrate the potential impact of multidisciplinary training using a One Health Model.
