Immune Response to Zoonotic Pathogens
Zoonotic pathogens represent a severe threat to human health, and in there is a greater risk for humans to acquire emerging infectious diseases transmitted from wild and domesticated animals. Zoonotic pathogens include various viruses, bacteria, parasites, and fungi. In addition, zoonotic pathogens have one or several reservoir hosts and other susceptible hosts. Pathogens can be transmitted to humans in both cases, including infected animals, ticks, mosquitoes, and aerosols. The human conquest of untouched areas of the native environment and globalization with the ability to travel and spread pathogens quickly are some reasons for the emergence of new zoonotic pathogens. Studying the immune response of zoonotic pathogens on their natural host, susceptible host, and other animal models can help us to understand the immunopathology and mechanisms involved in controlling these pathogens. This information can offer vital knowledge to design vaccines, treatments, or preventive immunotherapies that contain the effects of these zoonotic pathogens on humans. This Topic aims to publish high-quality papers on the immune response against zoonotic pathogens. Thus, we invite you to submit your recent findings to this Topic as original research or review articles and communication focusing on immunity and immunopathogenesis of zoonotic pathogens.
