Rapid and Visual Detection of Monkey B Virus Based on Recombinase Polymerase Amplification

Announcing a new article publication for Zoonoses journal.  Monkey B virus (BV) infection in humans and other macaque species has a mortality rate of approximately 80%. Because BV infects humans through bites, scratches, and other injuries inflicted by macaques, the simple and rapid diagnosis of BV in field laboratories is of great importance to protect […]

Klebsiella, a Hitherto Underappreciated Zoonotic Pathogen of Importance to One Health

Announcing a new article publication for Zoonoses journal. Members of the genus, Klebsiella, are becoming increasingly challenging to control due to the recent convergence of multidrug resistant (MDR) and hypervirulent (hv) phenotypes in some species of concern to One Health. This article provides an introduction to this bacterial genus in the hospital and other settings, update Klebsiella taxonomy, and […]

Visual and Rapid Detection of Escherichia coli O157:H7 in Stool Samples by FTA Card-based Loop-mediated Isothermal Amplification

Announcing a new article publication for Zoonoses journal. Escherichia coli O157:H7 (E. coli O157:H7) can induce severe diseases in animals and humans that result in significant public health problems. Therefore, the development of rapid and visual detection methods to diagnose E. coli O157:H7 infections and monitor its prevalence is critical for the prevention and control purposes. A colorimetric loop-mediated […]

Antimicrobial Resistance, Virulence, and Genetic Characterization of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Recovered from Ready-to-Eat (RTE) Food in China: A New Challenge for Food Safety

Announcing a new article publication for Zoonoses journal. The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence, antimicrobial resistance, virulence profiles, and molecular characteristics of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) obtained from ready-to-eat (RTE) foods in China. Two hundred seventy-six RTE food-associated S. aureus isolates were collected from 25 provinces across China in 2018, then characterized by antimicrobial susceptibility […]

Monitoring the Process and Characterizing Symptoms of Suckling Mouse Inoculation Promote Isolating Viruses from Ticks

Announcing a new article publication for Zoonoses journal. Suckling mouse inoculation is an important method that has been used for years to isolate viruses from ticks; however, this method has usually been briefly described in the literature on a case-by-case basis upon successful isolation rather than providing extensive details. This study describes the procedure from […]

High Diversity of Tick-associated Microbiota from Five Tick Species in Yunnan, China

Announcing a new article publication for Zoonoses journal.  Ticks are obligate blood-sucking vectors for multiple zoonotic diseases. In this study, tick samples were collected from Yunnan Province, China, which is well-known as the “Global Biodiversity Hotspot” in the world. This study aimed to clarify the microbial populations, including pathogens, associated with ticks and to identify […]

Zoonotic Enteric Parasites among Pastoralists, Cattle, and Soil in the Upper Benue Trough of Northeastern Nigeria

Announcing a new article publication for Zoonoses journal. The occupation, lifestyle, and lack of formal education among pastoralists place them at higher risk of zoonoses. Moreover, zoonoses among pastoralists and their livestock in the Upper Benue Trough in northeastern Nigeria has not been studied holistically. Therefore, the authors of this article investigated zoonotic enteric parasite […]

Molecular Characterization of Anaplasma, Ehrlichia, Babesia, and Borrelia in Ticks from Guangdong Province of Southern China

Announcing a new article publication for Zoonoses journal. Tick-borne pathogens have become emerging global health threats in humans and animals. The objective of this study was to investigate Anaplasma, Ehrlichia, Babesia, and Borrelia in ticks in southern China. Ticks were collected from animals and identified to the species level. Tick-borne Anaplasma, Ehrlichia, Babesia, and Borrelia were tested by PCR assays, and analyzed by […]
