Objective In 2021, a first outbreak of anaplasmosis occurred in animals and humans in southern Québec, with 64% of confirmed human cases located in Bromont municipality. Ixodes scapularis ticks and Peromyscus mouse ear biopsies collected in Bromont from 2019 to 2021 were analyzed for Anaplasma phagocytophilum (Ap) with the objective of determining...

The development of interventions that reduce Lyme disease incidence remains a challenge. Reservoir-targeted approaches aiming to reduce tick densities or tick infection prevalence with Borrelia burgdorferi have emerged as promising ways to reduce the density of infected ticks. Acaricides of the isoxazoline family offer high potential for reducing i...
Article
One Health (OH) is an integrated approach that aims to sustainably balance and optimize the health of people, animals, and ecosystems. On the basis of a review of OH doctoral programs, we advocate for integrating social-ecological systems thinking in OH doctoral training to maximize the impact of future OH research and interventions.

Coxiella burnetii is a zoonotic agent responsible for human Q fever, a potentially severe disease that can lead to persistent infection. This cross-sectional study aimed to estimate the seroprevalence to C. burnetii antibodies and its association with potential risk factors in the human population of five regions of Québec, Canada. A serum bank com...

Background: Lyme disease (LD) is an increasing public health threat in temperate zones of the northern hemisphere, yet relatively few methods exist for reducing LD risk in endemic areas. Disrupting the LD transmission cycle in nature is a promising avenue for risk reduction. This experimental study evaluated the efficacy of fluralaner, a recent ora...
Article
Objectives This study aimed at (1) describing the local risk of West Nile virus (WNV) infection in humans based on previous case reports and (2) investigating the spatial clustering of cases in the five most affected administrative regions of Quebec, Canada, for the 2011–2016 period. Methods Human WNV cases declared to the Ministry of Health and S...
Presentation
Lyme disease (LD) represent an important threat for public heath worldwide and an emerging threat in Canada. Yet, few methods exist to reduce the LD transmission risk in endemic area. A promising avenue to achieve risk reduction is the disruption of LD transmission cycle in nature by treating the small rodent reservoirs of its etiological agent, th...
Poster
Context. Lyme disease (LD) is an important North American tick-born disease that is emerging in Canada. In parallel, new effective drugs against ticks like fluralaner, an Isoxazoline, appear on the market. Objective. Reduce LD transmission risk to humans by treating ecological reservoirs of its etiological agent with fluralaner. Methodology. Evalua...

Climate change has been linked with the establishment and geographical expansion of zoonotic diseases, an example of which is the well-documented increase in human cases of Lyme disease in Quebec, Canada. As temperatures continue to increase in Quebec, it is anticipated that several zoonotic diseases will be affected. In response to the growing zoo...
Article
Jamestown Canyon and snowshoe hare viruses are two emerging human pathogens associated with cases of neuroinvasive disease in North America. This study aimed to identify environmental and individual risk factors for seropositivity to these arboviruses in humans and pet dogs from Québec, Canada, 2012–2014. In humans, areas with moderate densities of...
Article
Periodic outbreaks of West Nile virus (WNV), Eastern equine encephalitis virus (EEEV) and to a lesser extent, California serogroup viruses (CSGV), have been reported in parts of Canada in the last decade. This study was designed to provide a broad assessment of arboviral activity in Quebec, Canada, by conducting serological surveys for these arbovi...
Article
The identification of specific environments sustaining emerging arbovirus amplification and transmission to humans is a key component of public health intervention planning. This study aimed at identifying environmental factors associated with West Nile virus (WNV) infections in southern Quebec, Canada, by modelling and jointly interpreting aggrega...
Article
Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) is a rare but severe emerging vector-borne disease affecting human and animal populations in the northeastern United States where it is endemic. Key knowledge gaps remain about the epidemiology of EEE virus (EEEV) in areas where its emergence has more recently been reported. In Eastern Canada, viral activity has be...

Full-text available
Abstract Eastern equine encephalitis virus (EEEV) is a highly pathogenic arbovirus that infects humans, horses, and other animals. There has been a significant increase in EEEV activity in southeastern Canada since 2008. Few data are available regarding nonlethal EEEV infections in mammals, and consequently the distribution and pathogenicity spectr...

Lyme disease, caused by the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi, and its vector, the black-legged tick Ixodes scapularis, is currently emerging in southern Quebec. One approach to reduce the risk of Lyme disease is to treat the rodent reservoirs of the disease in nature to control ticks and thus interrupt local endemic cycle of the disease. My Ph D project focuses on evaluating a new approach for treating wild rodents with potential applications for the control of tick populations in periurban environements.
