An increasing danger of zoonotic orthopoxvirus infections.

On May 8, 1980, the World Health Assembly at its 33(rd) session solemnly declared that the world and all its peoples had won freedom from smallpox and...

Comparing New-Generation Candidate Vaccines against Human Orthopoxvirus Infections.
The lack of immunity to the variola virus in the population, increasingly more frequent cases of human orthopoxvirus infection, and increased risk of the use of the variola virus (VARV) as a bioterrorism agent call for the development of modern, safe

Human infections with Plasmodium knowlesi--zoonotic malaria.
In 2004 a large focus of Plasmodium knowlesi malaria was reported in the human population in Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo. Plasmodium knowlesi, a parasite of the South-East Asian macaques (Macaca fascicularis and Macaca nemestrina), had entered the huma

Defective viral genomes: critical danger signals of viral infections.
Viruses efficiently block the host antiviral response in order to replicate and spread before host intervention. The mechanism initiating antiviral immunity during stealth viral replication is unknown, but recent data demonstrate that defective viral

Seroprevalence of Orthopoxvirus in rural Brazil: insights into anti-OPV immunity status and its implications for emergent zoonotic OPV.
Bovine vaccinia (BV) is a zoonosis caused by Vaccinia virus, a virus from Orthopoxvirus genus (OPV) that affects mainly cattle herds and humans in rural areas in Brazil. Because most studies have focused on outbreaks situations, data on BV epidemiolo

Novel Orthopoxvirus Infection in an Alaska Resident.
Human infection by orthopoxviruses is being reported with increasing frequency, attributed in part to the cessation of smallpox vaccination and concomitant waning of population-level immunity. In July 2015, a female resident of interior Alaska presen

Characterizing the transmission potential of zoonotic infections from minor outbreaks.
The transmission potential of a novel infection depends on both the inherent transmissibility of a pathogen, and the level of susceptibility in the host population. However, distinguishing between these pathogen- and population-specific properties ty

Zoonotic infections in communities of the James Bay Cree territory: An overview of seroprevalence.
Les communautés cries de la Baie James sont vulnérables aux maladies infectieuses transmises par les animaux sauvages. Les données tirées des tests sérologiques sur une série de zoonoses effectués dans la population générale (six communautés) ou chez

Multiple infections of rodents with zoonotic pathogens in Austria.
Rodents are important reservoirs for a large number of zoonotic pathogens. We examined the occurrence of 11 viral, bacterial, and parasitic agents in rodent populations in Austria, including three different hantaviruses, lymphocytic choriomeningitis

Review of bacterial and viral zoonotic infections transmitted by dogs.
Dogs are a major reservoir for zoonotic infections. Dogs transmit several viral and bacterial diseases to humans. Zoonotic diseases can be transmitted to human by infected saliva, aerosols, contaminated urine or feces and direct contact with the dog.
