81. Seroconversion for Infectious Pathogens among UK Military Personnel Deployed to Afghanistan, 2008-2011. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Seroconversion for Infectious Pathogens among UK Military Personnel Deployed to Afghanistan, 2008-2011. Military personnel are at high risk of contracting vector-borne and zoonotic infections, particularly during overseas deployments, when they may be exposed to endemic or emerging infections not prevalent in their native countries. We conducted seroprevalence testing of 467 UK military personnel deployed to Helmand Province, Afghanistan, during 2008-2011 and found that up to 3.1% showed (...) seroconversion for infection with Rickettsia spp., Coxiella burnetii, sandfly fever virus, or hantavirus; none showed seroconversion for infection with Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus. Most seroconversions occurred in personnel who did not report illness, except for those with hantavirus (70% symptomatic). These results indicate that many exposures to infectious pathogens, and potentially infections resulting from those exposures, may go unreported. Our findings reinforce the need for continued

correlations were performed to assess the potential for search terms to be used in construction of early warning systems.Notifications for 17 infectious diseases (26.6%) were found to be significantly correlated with a selected search term. The use of internet metrics as a means of surveillance has not previously been described for 12 (70.6%) of these diseases. The majority of diseases identified were vaccine-preventable, vector-borne or sexually transmissible; cross correlations, however, indicated (...) that vector-borne and vaccine preventable diseases are best suited for development of early warning systems.The findings of this study suggest that internet-based surveillance systems have broader applicability to monitoring infectious diseases than has previously been recognised. Furthermore, internet-based surveillance systems have a potential role in forecasting emerging infectious disease events, especially for vaccine-preventable and vector-borne diseases.

Experience indicates that people who have immigrated from endemic areas to developed countries and who return home to visit friends and relatives are at particular risk. They frequently do not seek or cannot afford pretravel advice on disease prevention and are more likely to enter high-risk settings than tourists who stay at resort facilities. Although less frequent (...) infections is available from experts at major medical and public health centers and travel clinics, at the , in textbooks of infectious diseases and tropical medicine, and in summary form from The Medical Letter on Drugs and Therapeutics .

Diseases for which control has failed (such as dengue fever and visceral leishmaniasis) are vector-borne diseases with changing epidemiological profiles and major difficulties in treatment (in the case of dengue fever, no treatment is available).

clinicians must be familiar with emerging infections that are spreading beyond their endemic origins. Most emerging viruses originate in animals and are vector-borne or zoonotic diseases. Newer infections are avian influenza (won’t be covered here), Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) – outbreak in 2014 -, and Zika virus. Other diseases continue to emerge – which we don’t have time to cover – such as: Heartland virus, Bourbon virus, variegated squirrel bornavirus (...) concepts: Recent outbreaks of vaccine-preventable childhood infections secondary to unvaccinated individuals and travel to areas where disease is still endemic demonstrate that these rare diseases are the rise!
