Synopsis: In recent years, zoonoses and communicable diseases common to man and animals have gained increasing attention worldwide. Human diseases that have their origins in infected animals, such as AIDS or Creutzfeldt-Jakob, have highlighted the need for a better understanding of animal diseases. The ease and speed of modern travel facilitates the spread of diseases once confined to specific geographic areas, as recently occurred with the widely publicized severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) epidemic. Animal migration and trade pose a similar threat, as was shown by the outbreaks in the United States of West Nile fever, and most recently, monkeypox—two diseases not previously known in the Western Hemisphere. Each of these examples highlights the need for accurate, up-to-date information, such as that presented in the latest edition of Zoonoses and Communicable Diseases Common to Man and Animals.
This edition, published for the first time in three volumes, covers:
I. Bacterioses and mycoses
II. Chlamydioses, rickettsioses, and viroses, and
This series provides a detailed overview of the most important historic and emerging zoonotic diseases, such as Ebola hemorrhagic fever, foot-and-mouth disease, influenza, giardiasis, Japanese encephalitis, shigellosis, and spongiform encephalopathies, with information ranging from their first appearance and most important outbreaks to the latest scientific knowledge of the diseases and their causative agents.
The chapters provide the following key information on each disease:
symptoms and occurrence in man and animals
source of infection and mode of transmission
role of animals in its epidemiology
diagnostic techniques, and
prevention and control measures
Numerous tables and figures diagramming modes of transmission complement the text.
This book is an essential tool for biologists, parasitologists, virologists, veterinarians, physicians, epidemiologists, and workers in public health and animal health institutions, as well as professors, researchers, and students in these areas. All of these groups will find Zoonoses and Communicable Diseases Common to Man and Animals, 3rd ed. to be an invaluable addition to their collection of most-consulted reference works.
