“We really don’t see that anywhere else,” Buhr said of the one-health concept. “There’s components, they’re not necessarily aligned.”

Discovery and development of propofol, a widely used anesthetic – Lasker Foundation [by a veterinarian]

April 1, 2022

“… It was my interest in science and my experience of being brought up on a farm that led me to study veterinary medicine at Glasgow University in Scotland. After graduation, I elected to remain in the academic environment, first as a house surgeon in the surgery department at the University Veterinary Hospital, and following study for a recently introduced diploma in Veterinary Anesthesia became a veterinary anesthesiologist at the University. …”

Dr. Carter says, “This was a 2.5 hour session that started with a One Health overview followed by a student discussion/analysis of various One Health papers, most of which were inspired/written by the One Health Initiative team, et. al. at the beautiful Lewis Honors classroom building on the UK campus (next to the Young library). 

 The links to the papers are on slides at the tail end of the deck.  The students were broken up into three groups for the discussion session.  The University of Kentucky (UK) has an impressive honors program for the students which started in 1958.  Among other things, each student has an additional 30 hours of special credit to earn on top of the requirements for their BS/BA degree.  They also have an international project to complete before graduation.  About half of the students are pre-med along with an assortment of pre-dental, public health, MBA, etc. A very impressive group of students!”

Interesting Emerging Infectious Disease (EID) journal cover art and One Health-focused analyses

March 29, 2022

…. Swanson’s insouciant image, including domesticated and wild animals from around the world, also works as a metaphor for humankind’s relationships with and connections to other animals through the lens of zoonotic disease. An observer watching such a carousel would see the figures emerge and reemerge, not unlike disease detectives tracking zoonotic diseases. Zoonoses, an unavoidable consequence of the interactions among humans and animals, are caused by harmful germs such as viruses, bacteria, parasites, and fungi. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes that more than 6 out of every 10 known infectious diseases in people come from animals and that 3 out of every 4 new or emerging infectious diseases in people come from animals. Knowing which animals could have zoonotic diseases proves challenging because both domesticated animals and wildlife may appear well, act healthy, yet carry lethal pathogens.

Like Swanson’s cycling carousel, emerging and reemerging zoonotic diseases―which are transmitted from animals to humans―and the pathogens that cause them, also occur in cycles as they propagate among different ecosystems. The sylvatic cycle occurs in natural settings among wild animals and vectors; the synanthropic cycle occurs where domestic and companion animals live in close association with humans. Other cycles of transmission are human-to-human transmission and human-to-animal transmission. Many interrelated factors, including climate change, modern agricultural practices, destruction of natural habitats, urbanization, and seasonality of infectious diseases, contribute to the complex and dizzying array of zoonoses that pose a challenge to public health.

Bacteria From Horses Give Clues to Antibiotic Resistance – The Horse

March 26, 2022

Researchers who study antibacterial resistance in people and across species found one equine fecal sample showed bacterial resistance to 11 different drug classes.

“Humans, horses, and other domestic animals share living spaces, companionship, food—even pathogens (disease-causing organisms). According to researchers, that means they’re sharing those pathogens’ antimicrobial resistance determinants (genes and mutations), as well. …”
