Animals, People, and Disease

The H1N1 virus is more commonly known as ``swine flu.'' That doesn't mean you can catch it from a pig, but it does point to the source of the infection.

And it's far from the only disease that can make the jump to humans from other species. Avian flu.

Rabies. Ringworm. Hantavirus. West Nile Virus. Even Ebola and HIV likely originated in animals and made the leap.

Now, with the world a global village and populations soaring, experts warn these species-hopping diseases may arise more frequently, and become more dangerous.

This hour, On Point: animals, people, and disease.

You can join the conversation. Tell us what you think -- here on this page, on Twitter, and on Facebook.

-Jane Clayson, guest host

Guests:

Joining us from New York is Donald G. McNeill Jr., science and health reporter for The New York Times.

From Columbus, Ohio, we're joined by Lonnie King, dean of The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine and

former director of the Center for Disease Control's National Center for Zoonotic, Vector-Borne and Enteric Diseases.

A couple of listeners called in regarding lyme disease itself, and the vet provided some erroneous information about lyme stats in the human population; however,

At 45:00 minutes in this broadcast, a caller poses a question about immunizing wildlife through feed to decrease transmission to humans.

to which guest, Lonnie King, mentions research I hadn't heard about:

In order to prevent disease, and decrease population of certain wildlife

"cutting-edge" research is being done, particularly to do with lyme where vaccines were unsuccessful in humans.

Private companies (which ones?) and the CDC are conducting research to
reproduce protein characteristics that cause the antibody response,
putting it in food like rice,
which is spread over a large area,
which animals/rodents then eat,
creating an immunity in the animals.

This is ACTIVE research. He goes on to say that that because it is so cheap it could be used over larger areas,

like in Africa with the plague. It could potentially have a huge impact.
