Changes in leptospirosis etiology in animals and humans.

Abstract Leptospirosis is endemic in Ternopil region. In Ukraine, the disease is registered in almost all regions, including the Ternopil region. The aim of the research is to study the regularities of epidemic and epizootic processes of leptospirosis, and the circulation of its pathogens among different sources (small mammals, animals) and humans.

AB  - INTRODUCTION: Leptospirosis is endemic in Ternopil region. In Ukraine, the
      disease is registered in almost all regions, including the Ternopil region. The
      aim of the research is to study the regularities of epidemic and epizootic
      processes of leptospirosis, and the circulation of its pathogens among different 
      sources (small mammals, animals) and humans. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Etiologic
      spectrum of leptospirosis registered in Ternopil region in 1972-2016 among small 
      mammals, farm animals and sick people was studied. RESULTS: Due to the analysis
      of pathogens circulation among different sources (small mammals, animals), as
      well as the annual morbidity in humans, it was proved that new leptospira
      serovars are endemic and brought into the regions mostly by farm animals. Farm
      animals introduce the infection to humans through the environment, sometimes
      within 3-5-years. The spread was observed of pathogen serovars, which are new in 
      certain areas, among all types of mouse-like small mammals and rats. It was
      established that livestock and small mammals are parallel reservoirs.
      CONCLUSIONS: In the regions with endemic species, the structural modification in 
      the etiology of leptospirosis in humans is caused by additional reservoirs among 
      animals, as well as the circulation of other pathogen serovars that were absent
      in the main natural reservoir, i.e. mouse-like small mammals and rats. The
      constant monitoring of the population, contamination and carrier state of
      mouse-like small mammals, rats and farm animals, is required In order to predict 
      the future epidemiological situation on leptospirosis among the population and to
      improve leptospirosis diagnosis.
