  • Infection Risk from Animals in the Home and in Public Settings: Larry K. Pickering, M.D., FAAP, senior advisor to the director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, executive secretary of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and professor of pediatrics in the department of pediatrics at Emory University School of Medicine outlined the risks associated with animal exposures to non-traditional pets in the home and to animals in public settings.

"Infections with organisms acquired from these animals can involve many organ systems including the gastrointestinal tract, skin, lungs, blood and central nervous system. Organisms which have been associated with outbreaks include Salmonella species, E. coli 0157:H7, Campylobacter species, Cryptosporidum species, and lymphocytic choriomeningitis. Dr. Pickering discussed regulations and recommendations applicable to these exposures and defined measures which can minimize or prevent illness in children from exposure to these animals.
