A Canadian farm-to-fork quantitative microbial risk assessment of ciprofloxacin-resistant Campylobacter spp.Download
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the largest public health threats of the 21st century with 4.95 million global deaths associated with bacterial AMR in 2019. Continued spread of bacterial AMR threatens the possibility of a post-antimicrobial era, where humans and animals may succumb from...
Allee effects are thought to mediate the dynamics of population colonization, particularly for invasive species. However, Allee effects acting on parasites have rarely been considered in the analogous process of infectious disease establishment and spread. We studied the colonization of...
An Analysis of the Environmental Risk Factors of Childhood Asthma and Asthma-like Symptoms: Results from the National Longitudinal Survey of Children and YouthDownload
It is known that a multitude of environmental factors are implicated in the incidence of asthma and asthma symptoms among children; however, previous research has provided inconsistent and/or insufficient evidence as to whether residing in a farming environment during childhood can lead to a...
Background Geographic public health surveillance is concerned with describing and disseminating geographic information about disease and other measures of health to policy makers and the public. While methodological developments in the geographical analysis of disease are numerous, few have been...
Antimicrobial Resistant Campylobacter species in the Food Chain: Understanding the Human Risk of InfectionDownload
Background: Campylobacter spp., commonly detected in poultry, are the third most common cause of foodborne illness in Canada. Campylobacter while self-limiting and typically only requiring supportive care treatment, can be resistant to antimicrobials important to human health. To better...
Carotid atherosclerosis is responsible for 15-25% of the nearly 8 million first-ever ischemic strokes that occur each year worldwide. This proportion has remained constant over the past three decades, thus suggesting that some patients with carotid atherosclerosis currently receive suboptimal...
"Objectives: This is first of 2 papers on the Circumpolar Inuit Cancer Review, an international collaborative effort involving researchers and health officials from Alaska, Canada and Greenland. It covers the period 1989–2003, updating the last review (1969-1988) and together provides an overview...
"Objectives: This is the second of 2 papers reporting on the result of the Circumpolar Inuit Cancer Review, an international collaborative effort involving researchers and health officials from Alaska, Canada and Greenland. Methods: Inuit cancer cases by age-sex group and anatomic site were...
Cardiovascular Disease Risk factors in Canadian-born and Immigrant Children and Youth in the Canadian Health Measures SurveyDownload
Immigrants make up almost 20% of Canada’s population. Recent adult immigrants to Canada are generally in better health than those born in Canada. However, we know little about whether this is also the case in children. We compared mean levels and prevalence of adverse levels of CVD risk factors...
Cardiovascular Risk According to Plasma Apolipoprotein and Lipid Profiles in a Canadian First NationDownload
"Introduction: Despite high diabetes rates among Canadian First Nations people, little is known about their cardiovascular disease risk. Our aim was to describe the apolipoprotein profile with respect to cardiovascular risk in a Canadian First Nation community. Methods: In 2003, a representative...
