Field, U. of C. studying how disease jumps from animal to man

| UPDATED STORY

Field Museum biologists returned from an African expedition last year with an unusually large collection of 1,100 bird and small mammal specimens, including blood, tissue and stomach content samples.

But what they will do next with those specimens is even more unusual.

They will use them to study how rare diseases - like Ebola, AIDS and SARS - originate in wild animals and then jump to humans with deadly consequences.    For more see:

Bird flu, though largely contained, still poses global threat – UN health expert

Avian influenza is still a menace.

 

16 April 2010 Although concerted international action has successfully eliminated the deadly H5N1 bird flu virus from poultry in nearly all 63 countries infected by the world outbreak in 2006, it persists in five nations, posing a continuing threat to global animal and human health, a senior United Nations official warned today.

Preliminary FoodNet Data on the Incidence of Infection with Pathogens Transmitted Commonly Through Food --- 10 States, 2009

Preliminary FoodNet Data on the Incidence of Infection with Pathogens Transmitted Commonly Through Food --- 10 States, 2009

April 16, 2010 / 59(14);418-422

The Foodborne Diseases Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet) of CDC's Emerging Infections Program conducts active, population-based surveillance in 10 U.S. states for all laboratory-confirmed infections with select enteric pathogens transmitted commonly through food (1). This report describes preliminary surveillance data for 2009 and trends in incidence since 1996. In 2009, a total of 17,468 laboratory-confirmed cases of infection were identified. In comparison with the first 3 years of surveillance (1996--1998), sustained declines in the reported incidence of infections caused by Campylobacter, Listeria, Salmonella, Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) O157, Shigella, and Yersinia were observed. The incidence of Vibrio infection continued to increase. Compared with the preceding 3 years (2006--2008), significant decreases in the reported incidence of Shigella and STEC O157 infections were observed. For most infections, reported incidence was highest among children aged <4 years; the percentage of persons hospitalized and the case fatality rate (CFR) were highest among persons aged ≥50 years. In 2009, the Healthy People 2010 target of ≤1.0 case per 100,000 population for STEC O157 infection (objective 10-1b) was met (2). Further collaborative efforts with regulatory agencies and industry are needed to sustain and extend recent declines and to improve prevention of foodborne infections.

New UN study urges sustained momentum to tackle human, animal influenza threats

14 April 2010 While there has been substantial global progress towards pandemic preparedness in recent years, it is vital to maintain that momentum to respond effectively to existing and possible future threats, according to a new study by the United Nations and the World Bank.

“Continued global vigilance for infectious disease outbreaks and pandemics is of critical importance for health security and well-being,” says the report, entitled “Animal and pandemic influenza: a framework for sustaining momentum.”

The report notes that an estimated 75 per cent of new human diseases originate in animals

Primary bladder phaeochromocytoma diagnosed by a vet.

Department of Urology, University of Turin, Molinette Hospital, Italy .

Abstract Bladder phaeochromocytomas are rare neuroendocrine neoplasms whose diagnosis can be missed in spite of their rather suggestive presentation. It is mandatory to collect a thorough medical history and to recognize their typical symptoms. This study reports the case of a woman, treated for hypertensive crisis, who was diagnosed with bladder phaeochromocytoma thanks to a vet noting her fainting after micturition.

“Canine Aggression Toward Children” -  a valuable One Health Podcast (USA)

 

American Veterinary Medical Association MEDIA LIBRARY - http://www.avmamedia.org/default.asp

 

“Every year, approximately 800,000 people in the United States are bitten by dogs, half of them children. Dr. Ilana Reisner, assistant professor of behavioral medicine at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, discusses why children are so disproportionately the victims of dog bites, and how adults can help protect their children through training and education.”
