Martin Shakespeare - Independent Pharmacy Consultant, London

Zoonoses is an accessible textbook covering zoonotic diseases. Zoonotic diseases are infections which affect humans but which are contracted from contact with infected animals.

Zoonoses have growing worldwide significance posing a constant challenge to healthcare and society.

There have been changes in disease patterns around the world in the last few years, and an increased scientific understanding of these infections. This book offers fascinating up-to-date information on both prevalence and treatment of various diseases, not only within the context of domestic disease, but also in the wider world.

Chapters have been expanded or diminished accordingly, and sections on bio-terrorism, E. coli, BSE, avian flu and SARS are included.

Zoonoses has a thorough introduction to the subject followed by sections on:

  • Zoonoses of companion animals
  • Zoonoses of agricultural animals
  • Food-borne zoonoses
  • Variant CJD, BSE and other prion diseases
  • Pandora's box
  • Emerging zoonoses
  • Implications for healthcare

Zoonoses is aimed at trained and trainee healthcare professionals, veterinary assistants, first responders, and those involved in the food and agricultural industries. It will be an invaluable resource for any undergraduate pharmacy student, practising pharmacist or other healthcare professional.
