Record incidence of hantavirus disease

(Deutsches Aerzteblatt International) 2824 new cases of hantavirus disease were reported in Germany in 2012, the highest number ever in a single year. In the current issue of Deutsches Ärzteblatt International, Detlev Krüger and coauthors present the main facts about this disease.

AbstractRodent-borne hanta- and arenaviruses are an emerging public health threat in Europe; however, their circulation in human populations is usually underestimated since most infections are asymptomatic. Compared to other European countries, Italy is considered ‘low risk’ for these viruses, yet in the Province of Trento, two pathogenic hantaviruses (Puumala and Dobrava-Belgrade virus) and one arenavirus (Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis Virus) are known to circulate in rodent reservoirs. In this paper, we performed a follow-up serological screening in huma ns to detect variation in the prevalence of these three ...

AbstractRodents represent 42% of the world ’s mammalian biodiversity encompassing 2,277 species populating every continent (except Antarctica) and are reservoir hosts for a wide diversity of disease agents. Thus, knowing the identity, diversity, host–pathogen relationships, and geographic distribution of rodent-borne zoonotic pathogens, is essential for predicting and mitigating zoonotic disease outbreaks. Hantaviruses are hosted by numerous rodent reservoirs. However, the diversity of rodents harboring hantaviruses is likely unknown because research is biased toward specific reservoir hosts and viruses. An up-...

Abstract Urbanization and rural-urban migration are two factors driving global patterns of disease and mortality. There is significant concern about their potential impact on disease burden and the effectiveness of current control approaches. Few attempts have been made to increase our understanding of the relationship between urbanization and disease dynamics, although it is generally believed that urban living has contributed to reductions in communicable disease burden in industrialized countries. To investigate this relationship, we carried out spatiotemporal analyses using a 48-year-long dataset of hemorrhagi...

Are you interested in geography? Then the geography of Hantavirus is an ideal topic to explore. Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) affected troops in several wars, including the war in Manchuria (12 ′600 cases among Japanese soldiers in 1930s), World War II (hundreds of cases among Finnish and German soldiers in Lapland and of Russians in Far East in 1940s), and the Korean War (3′200 cases among United Nations troops in 1950s). The causative agent was only isolated in 1978, by Ho-Wang Lee i n South Korea (near the Hantan River, also transcribed as Hantaan).
