Emerging infectious diseases (EIDs) are spread by direct and/or indirect contacts between a pathogen or parasite and their hosts. Arthropod vectors have evolved as excellent bloodsuckers, providing an elegant transportation mode for a wide number of infectious agents. The nature of pathogen and ...

AbstractFull Text

Nowadays most diseases are zoonotic, i.e., they can be transmitted from animals to humans. After a period when this was obvious, during the Covid-19 pandemic, I think we should put an emphasis on these zoonotic diseases, especially zoonotic parasites, which have not been as well studied as...

Abstract

Rodents play an active role in the transmission of a number of zoonoses by harboring and disseminating the pathogens involved, either through their biological materials or via their ectoparasites. Hence, the spatial and seasonal distribution of potential agents of zoonoses may be studied by...

Abstract

A wide variety of pathogens is transmitted from ticks to vertebrates including viruses, bacteria, protozoa and helminths, of which most have a life cycle that requires passage through the vertebrate host. Tick-borne infections of humans, farm and companion animals are essentially associated with...

Abstract

Zoonoses are diseases that can be transmitted directly or indirectly between animals and humans, for example, by eating contaminated food or by contact with infected animals. To prevent its occurrence, it is important to know which animal-based foods are the main source of infection. The European...
