Trichinosis: A World Problem with Extensive Sylvatic Reservoirs

  • James H. Steele

Abstract

The world prevalence of human trichinosis is small, but every case is important to the individual and to health authorities responsible for protection of the public. Hence, we must maintain a constant surveillance of human and animal trichinosis and take the necessary action when outbreaks occur so as to determine the epidemiology and how future episodes of disease can be prevented. We cannot hoe to eradicate T. spiralis but we should be able to prevent it from entering the human food chain.

Zusammenfassung

Trichinoses in der menschlichen Natur ist im allgemeinen gering. Aber jeder Fall ist dementsprechend wichtig, gegen über der Person unddas Gesundheitsamt, das Verantwortlich ist für die Sicherheit der Öffentlichkeit. Daher müssen wir regelmässige überwachungen aufrechterhalten gegenuber menschliche und tierische Trichinoses und mussen die Erforderlichen Veranlassungen treffen, falls ein Ausbruch Auftreten sollte. Wir können T. spiralis nicht ausrotten, aber wir müssen es verhindern, das es nicht in den menschlichen Nahrungsmitteln eindringt.
