The assessment of human health risks from rodent-borne diseases by means of ecological studies of rodent reservoirs.
Mil Med 2002; 167(1):70-3MM

Abstract

Zoonoses in general, and more specifically rodent-borne diseases, have proven to be of increasing importance in recent decades. The study of vector biology, therefore, is the foundation for understanding the infection mechanisms for humans. Military operations on the European and Asian continent have been substantially affected by Hantavirus infections during World War I and World War II, the Korean War, and the more recent events in Bosnia. The recently discovered Hantavirus serotypes with high mortality may extend the risk for the future to North America. In this article, we focus on the host and ecosystem relationships that might be useful in predicting potential outbreaks in Western Europe.
