Resurgence of field fever in a temperate country: an epidemic of leptospirosis among seasonal strawberry harvesters in Germany in 2007.

Hide Abstract
Although leptospirosis is a reemerging zoonosis of global importance, outbreaks related to agricultural exposures are primarily situated in tropical countries. In July 2007, a suspected leptospirosis outbreak was recognized among strawberry harvesters from Eastern Europe who were working in Germany. An investigation was initiated to identify the outbreak source and the risk factors for infection.

Hide Abstract
A measles infection in a 13-year-old student from a free progressive school was the index case for an outbreak in Essen in 2010. In this type of school, mainly unvaccinated and measles-susceptible children accumulate. This observation is confirmed by the fact that some of the recent outbreaks originated in such institutions. In Essen, this outbreak was followed by a second smaller outbreak in unvaccinated children and adults in a low socio-economic setting and migration background. Measles were diagnosed clinically and/or were serologically confirmed. Genotyping of measles isolates was performed by PCR and sequencing. Vaccination certificates were checked by the Community Health Centre (CHC) of the City of Essen. Measures to prevent the spread of the infection were implemented and enforced according to the National Protection Against Infection Act (IfSG). In total, 86 cases of measles were notified from March to July 2010. Of all infected patients, 97 % had had no vaccination and 15 % had to be hospitalised. Clinical courses showed the severity of this infection. Epidemiologic evaluation and genotyping of measles virus (MV) detected in Essen revealed the presence of two distinct chains of MV transmission by genotypes D8 and D4 causing two independent outbreaks. The outbreaks were caused by the index cases, and the spread of infection was facilitated by insufficient vaccination coverage in certain groups. Immediate suspension of non-immune children from classes for 2 weeks might have limited the outbreak in the free progressive school. Overall, high measles vaccination coverage in children and adolescents in regular schools in Essen presumably prevented a greater spread of the virus.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
