Zhang); University of Oxford, Oxford, UK (O.G. Pybus)

We report infection of humans with highly pathogenic avian influenza A(H7N9) virus in Shaanxi, China, in May 2017. We obtained complete genomes for samples from 5 patients and from live poultry markets or farms in 4 cities. Results indicate that H7N9 is spreading westward from southern and eastern China.

Urban wild boars (Sus scrofa) from Barcelona, Spain, harbor great diversity of Streptococcus suis strains, including strains with the cps2 gene and with the same molecular profile as local human cases. The increasing trend of potential effective contacts for S. suis transmission is of public health concern.

Zooanthroponotic Transmission of Drug-Resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Brazil

Emerging Infectious Diseases Journal June 2018 V.24 N.6

R. Fernandes et al.

Universidade de São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil (M.R. Fernandes, F.P. Sellera, Q. Moura, M.P.N. Carvalho, L. Cerdeira, N. Lincopan); Centro Universitário Monte Serrat, Santos, São Paulo (P.N. Rosato)

We recovered VIM-2 carbapenemase-producing Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates from an infected dog, its owner, and the domestic environment. Genomic investigation revealed household transmission of the high-risk hospital clone sequence type 233 in the human–animal–environment interface. Results suggest zooanthroponotic transmission of VIM-2–producing P. aeruginosa in the household following the patient’s hospital discharge.

Recuperamos VIM-2 cepas de PAE productoras de carbapenemasas de un perro infectado, su dueño y el entorno doméstico. La investigación genómica reveló la transmisión domiciliaria de la secuencia clon hospitalaria de alto riesgo tipo 233 en la interfaz humano-animal-ambiente.

Los resultados sugieren la transmisión zooantroprópica de P.AE productora de VIM-2 en el hogar después del alta hospitalaria del paciente.

Entre los científicos, existen opiniones encontradas sobre si el virus de la gripe equina infecta al hombre. En este informe, resumimos una revisión sistemática e integral de 2016 del inglés, chino, y literatura científica de Mongolia con respecto a la evidencia de infecciones por el virus de la influenza equina en el hombre.

Las búsquedas en PubMed, Web of Knowledge, ProQuest, CNKI, la base de datos Chongqing VIP, Wanfang Data y MongolMed arrojaron 2831 artículos, de los cuales 16 cumplieron los criterios de inclusión para esta revisión.

Teniendo en cuenta estas 16 publicaciones, hubo considerable evidencia experimental y observacional de que al menos los virus de la influenza equina H3N8 ocasionalmente han infectado al hombre.

En esta revisión resumimos los informes científicos más destacados

Influenza equina en Chile (1963 – 1992) – Un posible caso en un ser humano.

Rev Chil Infect 2005 V.22 N.1 P.47-50

En Chile, la influenza equina se ha relacionado fuertemente con las epizootias continentales. El primer brote fue descrito en 1963; brotes principales fueron reportados en 1977, 1985 y 1992.

El virus de la influenza equina se aisló en tres oportunidades: H7N7 (A / equi / 1 / Santiago, Chile / 1977); H3N8 (A / equi / 2 / Santiago, Chile / 1985) y H3N8 (A / equi / 2 / Quillota, Chile / 1992).

El brote más grave fue causado por la cepa H7N7 en 1977.

Desde 1992 no se ha reportado influenza equina en Chile.

En 1973 se describió un caso de influenza y seroconversión en un ser humano relacionado con caballos con problemas respiratorios diagnosticados como influenza equina; desafortunadamente el virus aislado no fue tipificado.

Davidson H. Hamer, MD; Kristina Angelo, DO; Eric Caumes, MD; et al.

La FA enfermedad potencialmente mortal se puede prevenir con la vacunación. Hasta el 15/03/2018, un total de 10 viajeros no vacunados a Brasil habían adquirido FA este año, y cuatro de los 10 habían muerto (40%).

Estos viajeros estaban visitando desde Argentina, Chile, Francia, Alemania, Holanda, Rumania y Suiza.

An outbreak of influenza A(H7N2) virus in cats in a shelter in New York, NY, USA, resulted in zoonotic transmission. Virus isolated from the infected human was closely related to virus isolated from a cat; both were related to low pathogenicity avian influenza A(H7N2) viruses detected in the United States during the early 2000s.
