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...

BlatchleyAbstractConventional solar disinfection (SODIS) processes rely on UVA radiation due to exclusion of shorter wavelengths by common SODIS containers. Because of this, these processes are slow and could be improved by inclusion of UVB radiation, which has been reported to be more effective for microbial inactivation than UVA on a photon basis, but is typically present at lower spectral irradiance. To examine the potential for microbial inac...

The synthesized AgNPs showed antibacterial activities against all the tested food-borne pathogens, including Listeria monocytogenes, Vibrio parahaemolyticus, Escherichia coli O157:H7, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Salmonella typhimurium. Furthermore, the S. aureus and V. parahaemo...

Jangwan, Saurabh YadavAbstractThe field of nanoscience or nanotechnology is gaining popularity day by day and it is now well established field of interdisciplinary sciences. Nanoparticles are synthesized by various methods but suffer from few limitations such as toxicity. To overcome the limitations of various synthesis methods, the focus has shifted to new radius which involves biological organisms such as plants i.e. green synthesis. This phyto-mediated approach using v...

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...
