Zoonotic pathogens cause infections in animals and are also transmissible to humans; knowledge of the extrahuman reservoirs of these pathogens is thus essential for understanding the epidemiology and potential control of human disease. Zoonotic diseases are typically endemic and occur in natural foci. However, ecologic change and meteorologic or climatic(More)
Prior to a limited field application of an orally-administered vaccinia-rabies glycoprotein (V-RG) recombinant virus vaccine for wildlife, background data were obtained for the proposed site on Parramore Island, Virginia (USA). Mammalian target and nontarget species, potentially at risk for exposure to vaccine were inventoried. Placebo baiting trials with a(More)
In the United States, swine salmonellosis is most often attributed to infections by Salmonella<lb>serovar choleraesuis. As a host-adapted pathogen rarely found in nonswine sources, S. choleraesuis is thought<lb>to be spread primarily via horizontal transmission, with carrier animals playing an important role. Little has<lb>been reported regarding infection(More)
In 1998 the protected population of Perameles gunnii (eastern barred bandicoot) at Woodlands Historic Park, Victoria, Australia became functionally extinct following removals of individuals for translocation between 1994 and 1996. Population viability analysis and data collected whilst the population was in decline are used to explore the impact that these(More)
Cancers arise from unregulated cellular growth and exhibits a range of pathophysiological characteristics and behaviour. The term “tumour heterogeneity” encompasses a broad range of tumour features that have arisen as a result of different mechanistic processes including stem-cell origin, tumour evolution (linked to genetic mutations and adverse tumour(More)
This study has assessed the ability of five hand-washing agents, Hibisol, Hibiscrub, Betadine, 70% isopropyl alcohol and bar soap, to decontaminate the surfaces of Biogel D, Surgikos Microtouch and Ansell Gammex latex medical gloves after repeated inoculation with Staphylococcus aureus. The glove and hand-washing agents were compared in a Latin Square(More)
Conclusion The ability to accurately differentiate between benign and malignant disease can be challenging and can contribute to reporting discrepancies even amongst experienced radiologists. This can be especially demanding when imaging patients with known malignancy and is a concern for general and specialist radiologists. Being aware of abnormalities(More)
