Risk Factors and Clinical Characteristics of Leptospirosis
In this podcast we bring you a research update with Drs. Janet Foley and Jane Sykes who were funded by CHF to determine the risk factors for and clinical characteristics of a disease called leptospirosis. Dr. Foley is a veterinarian and disease ecologist who studies the ecology and epidemiology of infectious diseases in animal and human populations. She completed both her DVM and PhD at UC Davis where she is now a professor of medicine and epidemiology. Dr. Sykes obtained her veterinary degree and a PhD in veterinary microbiology at the University of Melbourne in Australia. She is Board Certified in Small Animal Internal Medicine and is the founder of the International Society for Companion Animal Infectious Diseases, a group dedicated to enhancing control of infectious diseases in animals and thus reducing spread of disease. Drs. Foley and Sykes will be discussing leptospirosis and their research results that were recently published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association.
