Human Health Testing

One Health researchers around the world study diseases that affects both humans and animals.

Find it.  Treat it.  Prevent it.

Approximately 75% of emerging infectious diseases affecting humans are zoonotic, that is, transmitted from animals to humans.

Many of these infections, including Bartonella, can be transmitted to humans by companion animals, including dogs, cats, horses, and other pets.

Vectors, including fleas, ticks, lice, and biting flies, play an important role in transmitting zoonotic infections, like Bartonella. Fleas found on cats and dogs are the most common vector linked to transmission of Bartonella species.

Individuals at high-risk of acquiring Bartonella infection include those who work or live with animals, or those with high exposure to fleas, ticks, lice, and biting flies.

Stealth infections like Bartonella are increasingly implicated in complex chronic disease syndromes, yet are extremely difficult to diagnose accurately.
