Special Issue Information
The zoonotic transmission of pathogens constitutes an important public health problem of global significance that implicates humans with domesticated and wild animals. Prions, viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites are spread through a cross-species spillover phenomenon that results in the dissemination of the respective diseases and leads to the emergence of new pathogenic variants and strains.
Research dedicated to the hosts, humans or animals, engaged in the transmission circle of these diseases can provide valuable information regarding the traits of the circulating pathogens. Subsequently, the integrated inspection and surveillance of each disease will promote a deeper understanding and enable prevention of future spillover events.
This Special Issue of Microorganisms will include articles concerning pathogens that can be transmitted among different species and which should be viewed under the ‘One Health’ approach. Submissions can refer to the causal agents of such problems, as well as to all aspects of the relevant diseases: diagnosis, pathogenesis, transmission, epidemiology and molecular epidemiology, surveillance and control and may include studies performed in people and/or animals describing original field, laboratory or experimental work. Systematic or opinionated reviews are also welcome.
