This guide provides principles, best practices, and options to assist countries in achieving sustainable and functional collaboration at the human-animal-environment interface.
As global trade and travel expands, zoonotic diseases are increasingly posing concerns worldwide. To face these threats, collaboration, coordination, communication, and concerted action between different sectors are needed, using a multisectoral, One Health approach.
The researchers found that the inflammation sensor that normally triggers the body's response to fight off stress and infection, a protein called NLRP3, barely reacts in bats compared to humans and mice, even in the presence of high viral loads.
The genetic diversity of influenza A viruses circulating in swine in Mexico complicates control efforts in animals and presents a threat to humans.
Researchers used a cell-free seeded protein misfolding assay to determine whether chronic wasting disease (CWD) prions from elk, white-tailed deer, and reindeer in North America can convert the human prion protein to the disease-associated form.
Research findings suggest that feral swine infected with influenza A viruses at low levels could serve as hosts for the generation of novel influenza A viruses.
The core concept of the One Health approach is that multiple disciplines collaborate at the local, national, and international level to improve human and animal health.
Approximately 72 percent of human infectious diseases are zoonotic in origin.
There have been more cases of Q Fever reported in the last two years than in any year since the National Q Fever Management Program ended over 10 years ago. So what is Q fever and why is it important?
This paper provides a review of the drivers for emergence, highlights some emerging zoonotic diseases, and offers examples of One Health approaches to disease investigation, prevention and control.
