One Health is a well-known strategy for promoting and developing interdisciplinary collaboration and communication in all aspects of health in human, animal, and environmental domains. This approach is of great importance in response to pandemic threats such as the current deadly COVID-19 pandemic. This is only the latest of several examples of the challenges represented by pathogens of animal origin on the health of the entire word (i.e., influenza virus, SARS). Analogously, the rapid increase of the health problems due to antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is clearly linked to a circle that includes the therapeutic management of human and domestic animal diseases, the spread of AMR to bacteria into the environment, and then the reoccurrence in both humans and animals. Moreover, the developments of “-omics” techniques has significantly increased our capability to investigate all the aspects of infectious diseases in a more detailed and holistic way. This context supports the importance of the current research on the epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and control of infectious diseases of domestic animals both to reduce their frequency worldwide and to decrease the potential challenges to human health.
Therefore, Pathogens will launch a Special Issue devoted both to original research and review articles on all aspects of infectious diseases of domestic animals (i.e., epidemiology, diagnosis, control, etc.) with a special, but not exclusive, interest in the ones that could be transmitted to humans or that have common features with human diseases. Studies related to AMR (resistance genes, resistance patterns, etc.) linked to infectious disease control will be also within the scope of this Special Issue.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to update our knowledge on all aspects of the current research on infectious diseases of domestic animals from a One Health perspective in order to increase the multidisciplinary cooperation and communication in the area of infectious diseases.
