#1
Tristan P Learoyd, Rupert M Gaut
Background: Globally 1.4 billion people are at risk from cholera in countries where the disease is endemic, with an estimated 2.8 million cases annually. The disease is significantly under reported due to economic, social and political disincentives as well as poor laboratory resources and epidemiological surveillance in those regions. In addition, identification of cholera from other diarrhoeal causes is often difficult due to shared pathology and symptoms with few reported cases in travellers from Northern Europe...

Geeta Hitch, Naomi Fleming
Background: There are many recommendations on the use of antibiotics for prophylaxis and treatment of travellers' diarrhoea (TD). As pharmacists with a special interest in antimicrobial stewardship, we examine and offer our perspective on advice that is recommended to travellers in terms of prevention, treatment and management of TD with a focus on antibiotic use and resistance. Methods: Publications on TD were identified through PubMed, Google Scholar and Cochrane Library databases searches using search terms 'travellers diarrhoea', 'travellers diarrhoea', 'travellers' diarrhoea' 'guidelines', 'expert opinion', 'expert reviews', 'South Asia' and 'South East Asia' (S and SE Asia), 'antibiotics', 'resistance genes', 'travel advice', 'pharmacists', 'guidelines', 'prevention' and 'treatment'...

Background: This is a review of some of the non-pharmacotherapeutic interventions in travellers diarrhoea (TD) looking particularly at the role of pre and probiotics, the evidence behind water purification and the impact of advice given and its adherence by travellers. Method: A systematic review of the research completed under section using the listed key words and searched using the databases of Google Scholar, Journal of Travel Medicine, QxMD, ReadCube and The Knowledge Network...

James C Pearce, Tristan P Learoyd, Benjamin J Langendorf, James G Logan
Background: Japanese encephalitis (JE) is a viral disease predominantly located in South East Asia and commonly associated with transmission between amplifying hosts, such as pigs, and the mosquito Culex tritaeniorhynchus, where human infection represents a dead end in the life cycle of the virus. The expansion of JE beyond an Asiatic confine is dependent on a multitude of complex factors that stem back to genetic subtype variation. A complex interplay of the genetic variation and vector competencies combine with variables such as geography, climate change and urbanization...

Lars Lindquist
Japanese encephalitis is a major disease in many countries in Asia often visited by both leisure and non-leisure travellers. Although reported cases of Japanese apoptosis (JE) in travellers are relatively few, there are indications that both the number of cases might be underreported and that changes in the epidemiological situation in these parts of Asia may increase the risk, especially non-leisure travellers. Although JE mainly is considered a rural disease urban cases are seen the large economic growth and urbanization of previously rural areas in many for JE high-endemic areas may further add to the risk for JE, especially for business travellers, when visiting newly established peri-urban areas...

#7
Larry Goodyer, Steven Schofield
Background: This review examines the published laboratory and field tests where the repellents DEET and picaridin have been compared for their efficacy as repellents against mosquitoes. The review is limited to an assessment of whether the duration of protection afforded by picaridin is similar to or better than DEET. Method: Identification and analysis of laboratory and field-based trials published in peer-reviewed journals that compared DEET to picaridin efficacy...

Laurence Rochat, Blaise Genton
Background: Telemedicine is emerging as a useful tool to provide expert medical advice to individuals facing health issues while travelling in remote areas. Before embarking on the development of a telemedicine system, we conducted a survey to assess the needs and expectations of travellers for such a service, and evaluate opinions about the importance of various travel criteria that may determine the contract of such insurance. Objectives: (i) To assess whether a telemedicine service is considered useful by travellers, (ii) to investigate which telecommunication medium is preferred, (iii) to determine which subgroup of travellers would be most interested in this service and (iv) to estimate the amount of money travellers would be willing to pay for a telemedicine service...

Background: A febrile man, who returned to China after a 9-day travel in Fiji and Samoa, was detected to be infected with Zika virus (ZIKV) at the port by Shenzhen Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau on 14 February 2016. Methods: The patient and his 32 travelling companions were traced for ZIKV infection. A standardised questionnaire was used to obtain the information on demographics, clinical manifestations and exposure history. Their samples were tested for ZIKV by quantitative reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR)...

Background: The study goal was to assess and compare adverse events (AE) of current vaccinations for travelers under 'real-life conditions'. Methods: A prospective observational online questionnaire study was performed from May 2015 till April 2016 in a travel clinic in Germany. Online questionnaire links were sent 1 week after the first vaccination date. Severity was rated on a scale from 1 to 5 (minor to very severe AE). Results: Of 1357 vaccinees 781 (57...

We present a case of East-African trypanosomiasis (EAT) in a 56-year-old Dutch woman returning from holiday in Tanzania and Kenya. The diagnosis was delayed due to the lack of suspicion and secondly because of postponed analysis of blood microscopy after negative rapid malaria antigen testing. Second stage trypanosomiasis was ruled out with liquor analysis. She was treated first with pentamidine and shortly thereafter with suramin, after which she recovered. We emphasize the use of thin/thick smear diagnostics in travellers returning from endemic countries...

Zika and Ebola viruses can persist in semen and pose a risk for sexual transmission. To determine if dengue virus, another flavivirus, is similarly detectable in semen, we performed dengue PCR on semen in five patients with acute dengue virus infection. All five tested negative, suggesting that dengue does not pose a risk for sexual transmission.

Background: With increasing international travel and historically high numbers of residents visiting friends and relatives overseas, travel-associated illnesses are frequent in Marseille, France. We report the changing epidemiology of travel-related illnesses over a 12-year period. Methods: A single site GeoSentinel surveillance analysis was undertaken for 3460 ill returned travellers presenting to two public hospitals in Marseille, France from March 2003 to October 2015, with travel-related illnesses...
