In the past few years, there has been an increase in emergent disease episodes, in the United States and globally. Given what we know about disease ecology, we can predict that such episodes will continue to increase in frequency and scale. Many of these episodes have involved livestock, food-borne and zoonotic pathogens. Many have presented a threat to human well-being and security. A few have involved what might be the ultimate threat of species jumping by the infectious agent, wherein…

Economic growth, urbanization, globalization, and the risks of emerging infectious diseases in China: A review
Three interrelated world trends may be exacerbating emerging zoonotic risks: income growth, urbanization, and globalization; high-risk areas for the emergence and spread of infectious disease are where these three trends intersect with predisposing socioecological conditions.

Detection of Infectious Cryptosporidium parvum Oocysts from Lamb’s Lettuce: CC–qPCR’s Intake
This study proposes a method with minimum processing steps that combines cell culture and the quantitative PCR (CC–qPCR) for detecting infectious C. parvum oocysts recovered from lamb’s lettuce that can detect up to one oocyst, whereas it is undetectable by classic qPCR.
