Clonorchiasis: a key foodborne zoonosis in China.
A background on the parasite and its life cycle is provided, key aspects regarding the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of clonorchiasis are summarized, the geographic distribution and prevalence are described, and some recommendations for future research and the control of this important disease are made.

Streptococcus suis: an emerging zoonotic pathogen.
This review provides background information on the biology and molecular characteristics of this Gram-positive bacterium, and describes the clinical signs, pathology, epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of human infection with S suis. Expand
Severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome, an emerging tick-borne zoonosis.
Information is provided on the molecular characteristics and ecology of this emerging tick-borne virus and the epidemiology, clinical signs, pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of human infection with SFTSV. Expand

Analysis of gene flow indicates that a small number of ancestral lineages gave rise to the existing diversity through a process of limited admixture, and marked phenotypic variation characterizes isolates of Toxoplasma gondii. Expand
Geographical patterns of Toxoplasma gondii genetic diversity revealed by multilocus PCR-RFLP genotyping
SUMMARY In recent years, an extensive collection of Toxoplasma gondii samples have been typed using a set of 10 PCR-RFLP genetic markers. Here we summarize the data reported until the end of 2012. AExpand
Diagnosis of toxoplasmosis and typing of Toxoplasma gondii
Conventional non-DNA-based diagnostic methods and DNA-based molecular techniques have provided foundations for further development of more effective and accurate detection of T. gondii infection and will contribute to an improved understanding of the epidemiology, prevention and control of toxoplasmosis. Expand
Human sparganosis, a neglected food borne zoonosis.
Empirical data suggest that the increased effect of sparganosis on human health is because of greater consumption of raw meat of freshwater frogs and snakes. Expand
Toxoplasma gondii Infection in Immunocompromised Patients: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
This study is the first to demonstrate that the immunocompromised patients are associated with higher odds of T. gondii infection, and appropriate prevention and control measures are highly recommended for these susceptible populations. Expand
Toxoplasma gondii infection in humans in China
Educating the public about the risks associated with unhealthy food and life style habits, tracking serological examinations to special populations, and measures to strengthen food and occupational safety are discussed are discussed. Expand
Sparganosis in mainland China.
Increased public awareness about the risks associated with eating raw food and strengthened food safety measures are needed to protect against sparganosis in mainland China. Expand
