Eosinophilic meningitis caused by Angiostrongylus cantonensis: an emergent disease
This paper describes the clinical signs and histopathologic findings associated with an emergent disease
associated with Trichomonas gallinae infections in free-ranging house finches (Carpodacus mexicanus) in California.
Amphibian chytrid fungus is an emergent disease
that is wiping out amphibians in many areas of the world including Australia, Africa, parts of Asia, and the Americas.
Transformative technologies and emergent disease
(for human and non-human life) have enabled change to occur to cultural and natural environments at a speed that makes adaptation difficult, if not impossible.
The ecology and evolutionary history of an emergent disease
: hantavirus pulmonary syndrome.
It has become an emergent disease
in North America, where it was detected for the first time in 1999 and became epidemic shortly thereafter (1).
Identification of human and rodent hantavirus infection in the Amazonas State adds this emergent disease
to our differential diagnoses of febrile tropical diseases and to our syndromic surveillance approach for febrile respiratory diseases.
Hantavirus cardiopulmonary syndrome (HCPS), an emergent disease
caused by New World hantaviruses, is associated with case-fatality ratios of 30% to 50%.
Identifying the bat as an enemy will only increase the dangers of more emergent diseases
. As the host population is thinned, stress will alter the state of the enzootic reservoir and precipitate spillovers.
PRESAGED has also shown to provide early warning on entirely novel pathogens (i.e., pathogens unavailable for algorithm training), suggesting that this approach will be robust in detecting emergent diseases
, such as SARS/MERS or novel flu strains, well before new training data are available.
