A new hot spot for tick-borne encephalitis (TBE): A marked increase of TBE cases in France in 2016
Conclusion The TBE increase that occurred in France in 2016 highlights the need to improve our knowledge about the true burden of TBEV infection and subsequent long-term outcomes.

Conclusions. We found few studies examining most correlates and outcomes related to low PA despite growing evidence that improving PA might be an effective intervention in improving posttransplant outcomes.

Background: The importance of tick-borne diseases is increasing all over the world, including Georgia. In Georgia, almost only a few TBDs have been reported in animals and men, involving Lyme Borreliosis [LB], tick-borne relapsing fever [TBRF], tick-borne encephalitis [TBE], Crimean-Congo Haemorrhagic Fever [CCHF].
A constant increase in the incidence of tick-borne diseases has been observed in Europe since the last decade of the twentieth century. In Poland, the most common zoonoses transmitted by Ixodes ricinus ticks are tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) and Lyme disease. These diseases have become a serious clinical problem, especially in Podlaskie Region, which is considered an endemic area for these diseases (Czupryna et al., 2011).
We present case studies on the role of rodents in the cycles of Bartonella spp., of wild ungulates in the cycle of Babesia spp., and of various wildlife species in the life cycle of Leishmania infantum, Anaplasma phagocytophilum and Rickettsia spp. These examples highlight the usefulness of surveillance strategies focused on neglected zoonotic agents in wildlife as a source of valuable information for health professionals, nature managers and (local) decision-makers. These benefits could be further enhanced by increased collaboration between researchers and stakeholders across Europe and a more harmonised and coordinated a...
Conclusions: The results of detection and attribution studies can inform evidence-based risk management to reduce current, and plan for future, changes in health risks associated with climate change. Gaining a better understanding of the size, timing, and distribution of the climate change burden of disease and injury requires reliable long-term data sets, more knowledge about the factors that confound and modify the effects of climate on health, and refinement of analytic techniques for detection and attribution. At the same time, significant advances are possible in the absence of complete data and statistical certainty:...
