Most of the recent emerging diseases are of animal origin, and nearly all are potential zoonoses. Over the last decade, nearly one new emerging disease has appeared each year and around 75% of them are zoonotic in nature. West Nile fever and avian influenza epidemics, and the recent rabies upsurge in Eastern Europe bear witness to the vitality of emerging diseases the world over.
This third revised and enlarged French edition of P.N. Acha and B. Szyfres’s original work, Zoonoses et maladies transmissibles communes à l’homme et aux animaux, comes just at the right time. It updates both the earlier French edition and the English edition 'Zoonoses and Communicable Diseases Common to Man and Animals' (PAHO/WHO, 2003) and contains information obtained using new technologies, incorporating the findings of scientific progress in various fields. The wealth of documentation contained in this volume will be of interest to a broad audience.
Volume I : Bacterioses et mycoses ; Volume II : Chlamydioses, rickettsioses et viroses; Volume III : Parasitoses.
