Pathogenic disease that can be transmitted from one animal species to another (or human)
East Asia is as a principal hotspot for emerging zoonotic infections.
Toxoplasma gondii is a widespread parasite of animals that causes zoonotic infections in humans.
Although bacteria, fungi and parasites can be causative agents, the majority of zoonotic infections are caused by viral pathogens.
Corynebacterium ulcerans is an emergent pathogen infecting wild and domesticated animals worldwide that may serve as reservoirs for zoonotic infections.
Toxoplasma gondii is among the most prevalent parasites worldwide, infecting many wild and domestic animals and causing zoonotic infections in humans.
Influenza A(H1) viruses circulating in swine represent an emerging virus threat, as zoonotic infections occur sporadically following exposure to swine.
This parasite can also cause zoonotic infections in humans, but has been largely neglected due to a lack of diagnostic techniques and studies.
Finally, with regard to virology, possible zoonotic infections emanating from pigs are reviewed, with special emphasis on the pig endogenous retrovirus (PERV).
A common clone (ET3) of Staphylococcus aureus is responsible for a large proportion of cases of bovine mastitis and occasionally causes zoonotic infections of humans.
IMPORTANCE Zoonotic infections with high case fatality rates caused by avian H7N9 influenza viruses have been reported since early 2013 in China.
