Tropical viral diseases are on the rise worldwide. Zika, swine fly, Rift Valley fever and SARS are just a few of the many diseases threatening humans or animals. Jeroen Kortekaas, Wim van der Poel and Mart de Jong (WUR) explain the research that they do to prevent new outbreaks and epidemics.
Another NCOH year of exciting and important research. It’s time for an update! You and all NCOH scientists are invited to join this year’s NCOH Science Café on 29 October 29 in Utrecht to get up to speed with the latest developments and meet fellow NCOH colleagues. Prevention and control of infectious diseases outbreaks are important societal challenges that require an integrated and balanced perspective in which human, veterinary, wildlife, and environmental elements and considerations are integrated.
Researchers from the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment, Utrecht University, University Medical Center Utrecht, the Animal Health Service and Wageningen Bioveterinary Research, all members of the ESBLAT consortium, have previously shown that ESBL antimicrobial resistance is common in humans, livestock and companion animals, food of animal origin and the environment. However, ESBL types in humans were found to differ from those in animals and food. The most important source of contamination for humans remained unknown until now.
