Handbook of Zoonoses, Section B: Viral Zoonoses - CRC Press Book This multivolume handbook presents the most authoritative and comprehensive reference work on major zoonoses of the world. The Handbook of Zoonoses covers most diseases communicable to humans, as well as those diseases common to both animals and humans.

This chapter could also be called eco-epidemiological basics or background information for zoonoses and sapronoses. Epidemiology is the study of the process of the origin and spread of transmissible (communicable) infectious diseases of man, and their control. The modern conception of epidemiology is broader in that it also includes non-infectious diseases (such as Author: Zdenek Hubálek, Zdenek Hubálek, Ivo Rudolf.

Applied research. The zoonoses research of BfR is primarily applied research. BfR is only engaged to a limited extent in fundamental research. BfR also hosts national reference laboratories for different zoonotic agents. Legal bases.

The initial successes in control of infectious diseases in animals were the control and eradication of rinderpest and contagious bovine pleuropneumonia in the late s (Fisher ).The distribution of livestock diseases began to change more rapidly in the s and s as European and North American countries and Japan began to make serious inroads into the control of a range of Author: Sara Babo Martins, Barbara Häsler, Jonathan Rushton.

1. Introduction. The accelerating rate of emerging infectious disease poses significant and increasing health risks for people and animals worldwide (Daszak et al., , Gibbs, , Wilcox and Gubler, ).An estimated 70% of emerging and re-emerging human infections are zoonotic (originate in animals) (Jones et al., ).Scholars and practitioners agree that emerging zoonotic disease is a Cited by: This may potentially increase zoonoses such as African animal trypanosomiasis. At present 10% of livestock in Africa are infected with trypanosomiasis, which reduces livestock production by 15%. In humans, it can cause sleeping sickness and be fatal if untreated. Rapid Response BRIEFING • ZOONOSES - FROM PANIC TO PLANNING ISSUE 02 • JANUARY. 2 Research on livestock value chains and zoonoses • Research on livestock value chains is increasingly being used to study the risks and impacts of animal and zoonotic diseases on livestock systems, and to develop more appropriate interventions which target areas of highest risk and highest return for disease Size: 1MB. The STEPS Centre has a range of research projects and resources which explore zoonoses (diseases that can be transmitted from animals to humans), offering new theory as well as practical solutions. Our work often considers the landscape of politics, policy processes and international responses to pandemics and resources cover diseases including avian influenza, swine influenza, Ebola, Lassa.
