Four Landmark One Health Textbooks of the early 21st Century - Tuesday, December 16, 2014

Four Landmark One Health Textbooks of the early 21st Century:

One Health is the collaborative efforts of multiple disciplines working locally, nationally, and globally to attain optimal health for people, animals, plants and our environment.

One Health implementation will help protect and/or save untold millions of lives in our generation and for those to come.

 

 Between animal and human medicine there are no dividing lines--nor should there be.”      Rudolf Virchow, MD (the father of cellular pathology)

 

Each book has been accomplished in the true multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary/transdisciplinary spirit of One Health: in essence, co-equal synergistic national and international collaborations among physicians, veterinarians, a broad range of health scientists working in tandem—sharing and expeditiously expanding efficacious current medical and health care knowledge for the benefit of this and future generations.  Public Health and Clinical health (comparative medicine) issues are addressed. Both academic and ‘real world’ (realistic) considerations are included.

·         Dr. Monath http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/publications/Tom%20Monath%20Biography%20January2014.pdf, an internationally renowned physician virologist and vaccinologist was a co-founder of the OHI team, the originator and sponsor of the OHI website and a former member of the American Veterinary Medical Association’s (AVMA) One Health Initiative Task Force (OHITF) and its current successor, the U.S. One Health Commission.  His recent broad spectrum One Health endeavors include a visonary public health publication “Vaccines against diseases transmitted from animals to humans: A one health paradigm”

“This review focuses on the immunization of animals as a means of preventing human diseases (zoonoses). …” In simple terms, the idea is to develop vaccines that protect domestic animals and wildlife thereby establishing effective barriers against human infections.  Developing animal vaccines are less expensive and are less strictly regulated than are those for humans.  Hopefully a common sense One Health approach can go forward: http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/publications/Thomas%20P.%20Monath,%20MD%20Sept%202013%20One%20Health%20Vaccine%20Article.pdf.  In addition, Dr. Monath's pertinent enterprising work currently involves crucial development activities related to Ebola vaccine http://globenewswire.com/news-release/2014/11/14/683448/10108229/en/NewLink-Genetics-Appoints-Thomas-P-Monath-M-D-to-the-Position-of-Chief-Scientific-and-Chief-Operations-Officer-of-BioProtection-Systems-Corporation-Its-Infectious-Disease-Division.html.

Outstanding 21st Century One Health Pioneer and Leader Joins One Health Initiative Teamís Honorary Advisory Board - Wednesday, December 10, 2014

Outstanding 21st Century One Health Pioneer and Leader Joins One Health Initiative Team’s Honorary Advisory Board

The One Health Initiative Autonomous pro bono team is delighted to announce that Dr. Roger K. Mahr, a prominent One Health veterinarian, has graciously accepted becoming a member of the team’s Honorary Advisory Board http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/advBoard.php on December 8, 2014.  The OHI Honorary Advisory Board was established in 2010 and has 35 distinguished members from within the U.S. and worldwide. 

Dr. Mahr, a small animal practitioner for more than 34 years was unanimously elected as the 2005-2006 President-Elect of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). As president of the AVMA in 2006, Dr. Mahr revealed a vision for a One Health initiative whereby the veterinary medical profession assumed a major leadership role to establish a coordinated mechanism to facilitate collaboration and cooperation among colleagues in veterinary medicine, human medicine, public health, and ecosystem sciences with a focus on “One World, One Health, One Medicine.”

During Dr. Mahr’s presidency, the AVMA Executive Board took official action to establish the One Health initiative by approving a recommendation from him to establish the AVMA One Health Initiative Task Force. He then served as the project director for the multidisciplinary national One Health Joint Steering Committee, which subsequently facilitated a transitioning process to the formation of the One Health Commission. The One Health Commission was officially chartered as an independent nonprofit corporation in Washington, D.C. on June 29, 2009.”  Dr. Mahr, who received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree (DVM) in 1971 from Iowa State University, became the first Chief Executive Office of the U.S. One Health Commission https://www.onehealthcommission.org/ from 2009 through the fall of 2013 when he retired.

A unique 21st century One Health leader https://www.avma.org/KB/Resources/Reference/Pages/One-Health-How-was-the-One-Health-Commission-Formed.aspx, Dr. Mahr’s shepherding the concept through the AVMA while serving as President led to the establishment of having a major animal (and human) health oriented national organization (AVMA) accepting and subsequently promoting the visionary One Health cause.  Early on he established a productive One Health relationship with the late Ronald M. Davis, MD during his presidency of the American Medical Association (AMA).  Dr. Davis was in strong accord with Dr. Mahr on the One Health issue and the two established a milestone liaison.  The historic AVMA-AMA liaison (in effect to date) that was fostered by Drs. Mahr and Davis, resulted in the landmark adoption of a visionary “One Health” resolution by the AMA at their 2007 convention in Chicago, Ill.  President Davis spearheaded and guided this momentous event.

Colorado State University (USA) Director of Center for Comparative and Integrative Medicine Issues Strong One Health Endorsement - Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Colorado State University (USA) Director of Center for Comparative and Integrative Medicine Issues Strong One Health Endorsement

“I am delighted that the One Health Initiative is leading the charge of fostering collaboration and communication among all branches of health care.  The time has come to make this happen.  We need to bridge the gap between humans and animals as well as us and the planet as a matter of not only establishing best medical practices but also ensuring our collective survival.

Every day is “One Health” for me, extending from my human osteopathic medical practice to the Integrative Medicine Service at the Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital.  In my role as Director of the CSU Center for Comparative and Integrative Pain Medicine, I teach, research, and write about scientific, integrative medicine from a One Health perspective.  I educate students, practitioners, and the public about ways in which medical acupuncture, botanical medicine, manual therapy, and more apply and translate across the species spectrum (including humans) while at the same time leave a gentler footprint on the planet.”

“The One Health Initiative http://www.onehealthinitiative.com/ is a movement to forge co-equal, all inclusive collaborations between physicians, osteopaths, veterinarians, dentists, nurses and other scientific-health and environmentally related disciplines, including the American Medical Association, American Veterinary Medical Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, American Nurses Association, American Association of Public Health Physicians, the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the U.S. National Environmental Health Association (NEHA).   The One Health concept has gained substantial international recognition during the first two decades of the 21st century, e.g. it is now endorsed by the World Health Health Organization (WHO), Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), and World Organization of Animal Health (OIE).


A One Health related Ebola Epidemic Chronology project - Department of Biomedical Informatics, University of Pittsburgh (USA) - Thursday, November 20, 2014

 A One Health related Ebola Epidemic Chronology project - Department of Biomedical Informatics, University of Pittsburgh (USA)

The NIH-funded MIDAS Informatics Services Group (ISG) has released the Ebola Epidemic Chronology.  

The Ebola Epidemic Chronology is a collection of machine-interpretable representations of information about Ebola epidemics.  The Chronology contains representations of 27 Ebola epidemics, both historical (23) and ongoing (4).   Each representation integrates information about an epidemic from multiple sources, including publications and datasets.  A unique feature of the representations is the use standard identifiers -- for pathogen, host, disease, location, time, date, and laboratory tests.   Without standard identifiers, integration of information from multiple sources is much more labor intensive, and the effort to summarize and analyze across epidemics becomes almost prohibitive.  

A viewer intended to demonstrate the key ideas of standardization and integration is available at: 
http://www.epimodels.org/apolloLibraryViewer/ebola/epidemics
. 

A 4-minute video that emphasizes the key ideas about standardization and integration is available at: 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdhdmFJrZVE. 

The Ebola Epidemic Chronology is just one example of the potential uses of standards-based, machine-interpretable representation.  Software developers may find uses in applications used during investigations or for managing supplemental information accompanying publications or other uses that may align with the mission of the One Health Initiative to accelerate biomedical research discoveries, enhance public health efficacy, and expand the scientific knowledge base.  

Michael Wagner, MD, PhD leads the ISG team that developed the Ebola Epidemic Chronology.  Dr. Wagner welcomes inquiries from One Health readers. He hopes that investigators of epidemics of all types will see the representations as a means to the end of improving health and that software developers will use the representations to improve management of scientific information.

Health Initiative Targets Exotic Pet Keepers - Saturday, November 08, 2014

Health Initiative Targets Exotic Pet Keepers

TONBRIDGE, England, November 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

 

“In response to the burgeoning exotic pet trade, and subsequent increased risk to human health, the Emergent Disease Foundation, One Health Initiative, Worldwide Veterinary Service, and UNISON have collaborated in the launch of a new leaflet containing important hygiene measures concerning exotic pets. It is hoped that the leaflet, entitled  Exotic pets: Reducing the of risk of human infection will be distributed via medical centres, local authorities, schools, veterinary clinics and pet shops to help raise vital awareness, and minimise illness. The leaflets are available free of charge.

The advice contained in the leaflet is taken from an independent scientific paper entitled 'A review of captive exotic animal-linked zoonoses' published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Environmental Health Research. A diverse range of species is now available as 'pets' and they carry with them an array of exotic germs. An unfortunate animal may be transported halfway round the world and straight into someone's living room with the family having no idea of the risks it may pose. Many of these germs can persist on surfaces such as walls, door handles and clothes. Therefore, although hand-washing is standard advice and very important, it cannot guarantee that germs won't spread around the home or be passed directly or indirectly to others. Those particularly at risk are children under five, the elderly, pregnant women and anyone who is immunocompromised. …”

1st International Who's Who in One Health Webinar

Notable comments to consider:

Future generations will judge us by how well we – physicians, public health professionals, veterinarians, other health professionals and social science experts – took a One Health approach to solving critical global issues such as climate change and the increase in antimicrobial resistance. Only by doing so now can we hope to protect and ensure the interdependent health of ecosystems and the people, animals and plants that live in them.”

Veterinarian Joann Lindenmayer, DVM, MPH., American Veterinary Medical Association, Biography, One Health Commission Board of Directors Chair.

After witnessing the successive waves of different infections facing our country and our world, a common theme emerges from the MERS Co-V, Salmonella, Entervirus, Flu, MRSA to, of course, Ebola; we as humans are not alone.  What we do with our environment and handling of our animals across the world does somehow affect 'me'.  We are clearly seeing, with outbreaks and epidemics, the overall effects of man's interaction with the world from our management of resources to cultural activities in our communities to our general infection control responses.” 

Physician Albert J. Osbahr, III, MD, One Health Commission Board of Directors Past Chair, American Medical Association, Biography
