    Book Summary

    Written by an international, interdisciplinary team of physicians, veterinarians, virologists, medical microbiologists, and parasitologists, Zoonoses: Infectious Diseases Transmissible from Animals to Humans covers zoonotic pathogens as agents of emergence and reemergence of zoonotic diseases, opportunistic zoonotic infections, risks of iatrogenic transmission and xenotransplantation, imported zoonotic infections, food-borne zoonoses, transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, and of warfare. Zoonoses is a valuable physician's reference that covers all aspects of epidemiology, diagnosis and differential diagnosis as well as therapy and prophylaxis of zoonotic diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi.

    Zoonoses are a persistent threat to the global human health

    Today, more than 200 diseases occurring in humans and animals are known to be mutually transmitted. Classical infectious diseases, such as rabies, plague, and yellow fever, have not been eradicated despite major efforts.

    New zoonotic diseases are on the increase due global conditions such as overpopulation, wars, and food scarcity, which facilitate human contact with rodents, stray animals, and their parasites. In addition, humans are unwittingly becoming accidental hosts and new links in an infectious chain by engaging in activities such as survival training, which involves camping in open areas and consumption of raw or insufficiently cooked food.

    Zoonotic infections cause a variety of symptoms that often do not provide clear evidence of a known disease. Zoonoses, Fourth Edition, describes most occurring worldwide zoonosis and facilitates the identification, diagnosis and treatment of zoonotic infections.
    Written by a team of doctors, medical microbiologists and veterinarians, this completely, revised edition covers all aspects of the epidemiology and prevention of zoonotic diseases through clear descriptions of various illnesses. Specifically, this fourth edition covers zoonosis caused by
    • viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites
    • infections caused by animal bites
    • infections and intoxications by animal foods
    • Iatrogenic transmission of zoonotic pathogens

    Zoonoses is an indispensable reference for clinicians and laboratorians.
