  • Zika Virus in Israeli Travelers: Emergence of Asia as a Major Source of Infection. [Journal Article]
    Am J Trop Med Hyg 2019; 100(1):178-182Meltzer E, Lustig Y, Schwartz E
  • Zika virus (ZIKV) had emerged as a global arboviral concern since late 2015. In this study, we describe the results of ZIKV testing in returning Israeli travelers from Zika-endemic countries. We conducted a nation-wide prospective observational study, including all ZIKV tests during January 2016-June 2017. Zika virus infection was defined as confirmed, if diagnosed by polymerase chain reaction (P…
  • Clinico-laboratory profile of dengue patients returning from tropical areas to Poland during 2010-15. [Journal Article]
    J Vector Borne Dis 2016 Jul-Sep; 53(3):234-9Kuna A, Bykowska M, … Chomicz L
  • CONCLUSIONS: The number of Polish travelers to subtropics and tropics increases every year. As cases of fever and other symptoms appear to be increasingly in Polish people returning from tropical regions of Asia, America and Africa, their screening and management should be taken seriously. The study also suggests that the disease might be more widespread than it was known previously.
  • Effectiveness of border screening for detecting influenza in arriving airline travelers. [Journal Article]
    Am J Public Health 2015; 105 Suppl 4:S607-13, S600-6Priest PC, Jennings LC, … Baker MG
  • CONCLUSIONS: Border screening using self-reported symptoms and temperature testing has limitations for preventing pandemic influenza from entering a country. Using "any symptom" or cough would lead to many uninfected people being investigated, yet some infected people would remain undetected. If more specific criteria such as fever were used, most infected people would enter the country despite screening.
  • [Effectiveness of border screening for detecting Influenza in arriving airline travelers]. [Journal Article]
    Rev Panam Salud Publica 2014; 35(2):155-62Priest PC, Jennings LC, … Baker MG

  • Dengue fever and international travel. [Review]
    J Travel Med 2013 Nov-Dec; 20(6):384-93Ratnam I, Leder K, … Torresi J
  • CONCLUSIONS: Dengue infection in international travelers is not infrequent and may be associated with substantial morbidity. Furthermore, an accurate diagnosis of dengue in travelers requires the use of a combination of diagnostic tests. Although a vaccine is not yet available a number of promising candidates are under clinical evaluation. For now travelers should be provided with accurate advice regarding preventive measures when visiting dengue-endemic areas.
  • Acute schistosomiasis in European students returning from fieldwork at Lake Tanganyika, Tanzania. [Journal Article]
    J Travel Med 2013 Nov-Dec; 20(6):380-3Steiner F, Ignatius R, … Mockenhaupt FP
  • CONCLUSIONS: This is the first report of an outbreak of acute schistosomiasis imported from the Tanzanian shore of Lake Tanganyika and highlights the risk for travelers and the local population of acquiring the infection in that part of Tanzania. It provides arguments for routine serological screening for schistosomiasis in individuals who had prior freshwater contact in endemic areas, irrespective of symptoms or other laboratory findings.

  • [The fever of international travel]. [Multicenter Study]
    Rev Med Chir Soc Med Nat Iasi 2008 Jul-Sep; 112(3):602-11Hristea A, Luka AI, … Moroti R
  • Between 20 and 70 percent of the 50 million people who travel from the industrialized world to the developing world each year report some illness associated with their travel. Although most illness reported by travellers are mild, 20-70% of travellers become ill enough to seek medical attention, either during or immediately after travel. The full spectrum of health complaints is unknown. Neverthe…
