Developing diagnostic tools for pteropid bat serology

AB-CRC Postgraduate project: Antonio Di Rubbo

This project's aim was to generate pteropid-specific immunological reagents, of which none currently exist, for the development of both serological tests and the detection of cell-mediated immune (CMI) responses. The isolation and characterisation of pteropid bat IgM and IgG, and the production of monospecific polyclonal antibodies to these immunoglobulins, will facilitate the development of serological tests.

The AB-CRC Project has been completed. Link to PhD Thesis information on University of Queensland website >>

Health and Safety Information for Marine Mammal Workers

Wildlife Health Center, UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine

"Many species of marine mammals can be infected with, or be healthy carriers of, bacterial, fungal and viral organisms which are known zoonotic pathogens. The risk of acquiring diseases from marine mammals differs as humans interact with marine mammals under different circumstances, such as commercial fishing, subsistence harvesting, scientific activities, wildlife rehabilitation, and animal training..." This resources provides information on recent findings on zoonotic disease, health risks to people who work with marine mammals, discusses occupational health and safety and a table of documented zoonotic diseases.
