Intrinsic and extrinsic factors related to pathogen infection in wild small mammals in intensive milk cattle and swine production systems.

Abstract Understanding the ecological processes that are involved in the transmission of zoonotic pathogens by small mammals may aid adequate and effective management measures. Few attempts have been made to analyze the ecological aspects that influence pathogen infection in small mammals in livestock production systems. We describe the infection of small mammals with Leptospira spp., Brucella spp., Trichinella spp. and Cysticercus fasciolaris and assess the related intrinsic and extrinsic factors in livestock production systems in central Argentina at the small mammal community, population and individual levels.

AB  - BACKGROUND: Understanding the ecological processes that are involved in the
      transmission of zoonotic pathogens by small mammals may aid adequate and
      effective management measures. Few attempts have been made to analyze the
      ecological aspects that influence pathogen infection in small mammals in
      livestock production systems. We describe the infection of small mammals with
      Leptospira spp., Brucella spp., Trichinella spp. and Cysticercus fasciolaris and 
      assess the related intrinsic and extrinsic factors in livestock production
      systems in central Argentina at the small mammal community, population and
      individual levels. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Ten pig farms and eight dairy 
      farms were studied by removal trapping of small mammals from 2008 to 2011. Each
      farm was sampled seasonally over the course of one year with cage and Sherman
      live traps. The 505 small mammals captured (14,359 trap-nights) included three
      introduced murine rodents, four native rodents and two opossums. Leptospira spp.,
      anti-Brucella spp. antibodies and Trichinella spp. were found in the three murine
      rodents and both opossums. Rattus norvegicus was also infected with C.
      fasciolaris; Akodon azarae and Oligoryzomys flavescens with Leptospira spp.;
      anti-Brucella spp. antibodies were found in A. azarae. Two or more pathogens
      occurred simultaneously on 89% of the farms, and each pathogen was found on at
      least 50% of the farms. Pathogen infections increased with host abundance.
      Infection by Leptospira spp. also increased with precipitation and during warm
      seasons. The occurrence of anti-Brucella spp. antibodies was higher on dairy
      farms and during the winter and summer. The host abundances limit values, from
      which farms are expected to be free of the studied pathogens, are reported.
      CONCLUSIONS/SIGNIFICANCE: Murine rodents maintain pathogens within farms, whereas
      other native species are likely dispersing pathogens among farms. Hence, we
      recommend preventing and controlling murines in farm dwellings and isolating
      farms from their surroundings to avoid contact with other wild mammals.
