Bacterial pathogens in Ixodid ticks from a Piedmont County in North Carolina: Prevalence of rickettsial organisms Vector-Borne and Zoonotic Diseases
Although information about endemic infectious disease in Afghanistan is limited, previous historical reports indicate that several endemic vector-borne and zoonotic diseases
, including rickettsial diseases, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF), and pappataci fever (now known as sandfly fever) (10).
1507) reviewed the literature on the association between short-term climate variation and vector-borne and zoonotic diseases
(VBZDs) and developed six specific goals to increase understanding of the interaction between climate and VBZDs and improve capacity for predicting the effects of climate change on VBZDs.
An article describing the timely and broadly applicable molecular technique, published online ahead of print in the journal Vector-Borne and Zoonotic Diseases
, says that the molecular strategy is based on proven and widely used Real-Time, Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) technology.
Her research interests include the ecology, evolution, and epidemiology of wildlife and vector-borne and zoonotic diseases
BACKGROUND: Because of complex interactions of climate variables at the levels of the pathogen, vector, and host, the potential influence of climate change on vector-borne and zoonotic diseases
(VBZDs) is poorly understood and difficult to predict.
The vector-borne and zoonotic diseases
in this editorial encompass three patterns of emergence: known diseases increasing in incidence or geographic range (e.
