From rabies to salmonella: 5 diseases you can get from your pet

(Natural News) Who can resist a puppy that snuggles up to you when you get home after a long day, or a dog who wags its tail when you pass by? Dogs — and other pets — can be a man’s best friend. But sometimes, that furry delight may pose health threats you never knew...

Contributors : Christine E Hartman ; David J Samuels ; Anna C KarlsSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar TyphimuriumWe have shown that mitomycin C induces expression of the rsr-yrlBA-rtcBA operon in Salmonella Typhimurium in a manner that is dependent on the activator for this operon, RtcR. As such, treatment with mitomycin C generates the ligand or other cellular conditions that activate RtcR and likely generates the substrates on which the components of this RNA repair operon act. We performed an RNA-seq analysis on WT cells and cells with c...

This study therefore sought to document the microbiological quality and antibiograms of bacterial isolates (E. coli strains) from six different water sources in order to determine their safety for human consumption and to provide updated antibiotic data for pragmatic treatment of patients. Bacteria isolation and identification was done using API and conventional methods. Antibiotic susceptibility testing was conducted using the Kirby-Bauer method. Results obtained indicated that all the water sources tested were of poor quality. Bacteria isolated included E. coli, Enterobacter spp., Klebsiella spp., Salmonella typhi, Strep...

Authors: Ghasemzadeh I, Namazi SH Abstract 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. Viral infections such as rabies and norovirus and bacterial infections including Pasteurella, Salmonella, Brucella, Yersinia enterocolitica, Campylobacter, Capnocytophaga, Bordetella bronchiseptica, Coxiella burnetii, Leptospira, Staphylococcus intermedius and Methicillin resistance staphylococcus aureus are the most common vi...

Conclusion/Significance The health impact of zoonoses in Kyrgyzstan is substantial, comparable to that of HIV. Community-based surveillance studies and hospital-based registration of all occurrences of zoonoses would increase the accuracy of the estimates.

Abstract Vaccination is the most effective method for preventing rabies virus (RABV) infection in both humans and animals; however, no satisfactory vaccine has been developed for use worldwide. In the present study, we investigated the immunoadjuvant properties of Salmonella Typhimurium flagellin (FljB, FliC, and FljB’-FliC) to improve immune responses against the rabies vaccine (RV) and the protective efficacy of the whole-killed rabies vaccine (WKRV) with or without flagellins in BALB/c mice. We also compared the differences among the three flagellins in terms of immunoadjuvant properties to RV. FljB can c...

Summary Wild animal reservoirs are an important source of emerging and zoonotic infection. Skunks (Mephitis mephitis) are a reservoir of skunk strain rabies virus in Canada, with the exception of some areas including the province of British Columbia (BC). Beyond rabies, the reservoir status of skunks for emerging and zoonotic pathogens in BC is unknown. From March 2011 to February 2015, 50 free‐ranging skunks were necropsied and tested for 4 pathogens: influenza A, Aleutian disease virus (ADV), Leptospira spp. and Salmonella spp. Two skunks (4%) with respiratory disease caused by influenza A (H1N1) pdm09 were detected du...
