In Samuel Beckett’s play, “Waiting for Godot,” the main characters, Vladimir and Estragon, wait in vain for Monsieur Godot under a tree; Godot never appears. However, feeding leeches with fresh animal blood during the maintenance and reproduction phase bears the risk of transmission of zoonotic viruses to the patient. The difficulties for predicting future cross-species transmissions are highlighted by the wide diversity of known viral zoonoses. Additionally, the study of non-simian animal FVs can contribute to a deeper understanding of FV-host interactions and development of other animal models. Howship’s lacunae and multinucleated, tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase-positive odontoclasts were detected. Can spread to brain, weight lossWhat is a carrier? The recent infection of dogs with equine influenza virus (H3N8) (2) and of swine with human influenza virus (H1N2) (4) are particularly intriguing because the former resulted in influenza becoming endemic in dogs and the latter resulted in a documented reassortment event between human and swine influenza viruses.
Many zoonotic diseases can be transmitted from fleas or ticks (called vectors) to a person or a cat from another animal. More recently, in collaboration with Prof. Because FORL has been associated with feline viruses, we asked our mICR patients whether they had had contact with cats, and interestingly, all patients reported having had direct (2 cases) or indirect (2 cases) contact. If she is pregnant she needs the killed form of the vaccine or she can abort or have still born kittens. Why did you choose an accredited veterinary hospital for your pet? Future studies on mICR (and FORL) should evaluate the possible role of a (feline) virus as an etiologic (co-)factor in this disease.
