  • Travellers profile, travel patterns and vaccine practices--a 10-year
           prospective study in a Swiss Travel Clinic
    • Authors: Boubaker, R; Meige, P, Mialet, C, Ngarambe Buffat, C, Uwanyiligira, M, Widmer, F, Rochat, J, Herard Fossati, A, Souvannaraj-Blanchant, M, Payot, S, Rochat, L, de Valliere, S, Genton, B, DAcremont, V.
      Abstract: Background. The travel clinic in Lausanne serves a catchment area of 700 000 of inhabitants and provides pre- and post-travel consultations. This study describes the profile of attendees before departure, their travel patterns and the travel clinic practices in terms of vaccination over time. Methods. We included all pre-travel first consultation data recorded between November 2002 and December 2012 by a custom-made program DIAMM/G. We analysed client profiles, travel characteristics and vaccinations prescribed over time. Results. Sixty-five thousand and forty-six client-trips were recorded. Fifty-one percent clients were female. Mean age was 32 years. In total, 0.1% were aged

  • Patterns of behaviour that pose potential drowning risk to hikers at
           Yosemite National Park
    • Authors: Girasek, D. C; Marschall, J. S, Pope, D.
      Abstract: Primary Objective. To analyse patterns of departure from a popular hiking trail in Yosemite National Park, at sites where fatal drownings have occurred in the past. Methods. This study employed direct observation. For 32 days throughout the summer of 2013, study team members observed hikers who entered areas that brought them in close proximity to hazardous sections of the Merced River. Subject and environmental data were recorded for 1417 such approaches. Results. In 81% of our observation hours, subjects entered ‘risk zones.’ The median number of hikers seen near/in the river was eight per hour at the Vernal Fall footbridge, and three at the top of the waterfall. A regression analysis found that air temperature and later hike starts were positively associated, and water level was negatively associated, with the rate of river approach. Means of river access were also identified. Males, teens and people who were alone were significantly more likely to be observed entering particularly dangerous areas. Conclusions. It is common for hikers to approach water sources during summer months, particularly as air temperatures rise. By analysing how behaviour and environmental factors co-vary, safety advocates can tailor risk reduction measures to specific settings and visitor populations.

  • Paediatric Dengue Fever diagnosed through parents epidemiologic report and
           preventive strategy during the acute phase of infection
    • Authors: Poddighe, D; Bonomelli, I, Giardinetti, S, Nedbal, M, Bruni, P.
      Abstract: In Europe, Dengue Fever is one of the most frequent imported diseases and also autochthonous cases occurred in areas where the insect vector is present. Here, we describe a child returning from Philippines and diagnosed with Dengue Fever, through the information provided by parents about an ongoing outbreak in their municipality. An appropriate clinical management in the hospital was established to monitor the occurrence of complications and to cancel the risk of dengue virus transmission in the acute phase of infection.

  • International travellers from New Jersey: piloting a travel health module
           in the 2011 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System survey
    • Authors: Stoney, R. J; Kozarsky, P, Bostick, R. M, Sotir, M. J.
      Abstract: Background. In 2011, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the New Jersey Department of Health used the New Jersey Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (NJBRFS), a state component of the national Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) to pilot a travel health module designed to collect population-based data on New Jersey residents travelling internationally. Our objective was to use this population-based travel health information to serve as a baseline to evaluate trends in US international travellers. Methods. A representative sample of New Jersey residents was identified through a random-digit-dialing method and administered the travel health module, which asked five questions: travel outside of USA during the previous year; destination; purpose; if a healthcare provider was visited before travel and any travel-related illness. Additional health variables from the larger NJBRFS were considered and included in bivariate analyses and multiple logistic regression; weights were assigned to variables to account for survey design complexity. Results. Of 4029 participants, 841 (21%) travelled internationally. Top destinations included Mexico (10%), Canada (9%), Dominican Republic (6%), Bahamas (5%) and Italy (5%). Variables positively associated with travel included foreign birth, ≥$75 000 annual household income, college education and no children living in the household. One hundred fifty (18%) of 821 travellers with known destinations went to high-risk countries; 40% were visiting friends and relatives and only 30% sought pre-travel healthcare. Forty-eight (6%) of 837 responding travellers reported travel-related illness; 44% visited high-risk countries. Conclusions. Approximately one in five NJBRFS respondents travelled internationally during the previous year, a sizeable proportion to high-risk destinations. Few reported becoming ill as a result of travel but almost one-half of those ill had travelled to high-risk destinations. Population-based surveillance data on travellers can help document trends in destinations, traveller type and disease prevalence and evaluate the effectiveness of disease prevention programmmes.

      Abstract: In July 2014, a Japanese traveller returning from Thailand was investigated for fever, headache, rash and conjunctivitis. Zika virus RNA was detected in his urine sample by real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. Serological tests showed cross reactivity of IgM against the dengue virus. Zika fever could be misdiagnosed or missed and should be considered in febrile patients with a rash, especially those returning from Thailand.

  • Travel itinerary uncertainty and the pre-travel consultation--a pilot
    • Authors: Flaherty, G; Md Nor, M. N.
      Abstract: Risk assessment relies on the accuracy of the information provided by the traveller. A questionnaire was administered to 83 consecutive travellers attending a travel medicine clinic. The majority of travellers was uncertain about destinations within countries, transportation or type of accommodation. Most travellers were uncertain if they would be visiting malaria regions. The degree of uncertainty about itinerary potentially impacts on the ability of the travel medicine specialist to perform an adequate risk assessment, select appropriate vaccinations and prescribe malaria prophylaxis. This study reveals high levels of traveller uncertainty about their itinerary which may potentially reduce the effectiveness of their pre-travel consultation.

  • Incidence and risk factors associated with acute mountain sickness in
           children trekking on Jade Mountain, Taiwan
    • Authors: Chan, C.-W; Lin, Y.-C, Chiu, Y.-H, Weng, Y.-M, Li, W.-C, Lin, Y.-J, Wang, S.-H, Hsu, T.-Y, Huang, K.-F, Chiu, T.-F.
      Abstract: Background: Acute mountain sickness (AMS) is a pathophysiological symptom complex that occurs in high-altitude areas. The incidence of AMS on Jade Mountain, the highest peak in Taiwan (3952 m), has been reported to be ~36%. There is a lack of data in children trekking at altitude in Taiwan. The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence, risk factors and symptoms of AMS in children trekking on Jade Mountain, Taiwan. Methods: This prospective cohort study included a total of 96 healthy non-acclimatized children aged 11–12 years who trekked from an elevation of 2600–3952 m in 3 days. The Lake Louise AMS score was used to record symptoms associated with AMS. Results: AMS were reported in 59% of children trekking on Jade Mountain over a 3 day period. AMS incidence increased significantly with increasing altitude. The most common AMS symptom was headache, followed by fatigue or weakness, difficulty sleeping, dizziness or lightheadedness and gastrointestinal symptoms. Children who had experienced upper respiratory infection (URI) within the 7 days before their trek tended to have a greater risk for development of AMS. AMS incidence did not significantly differ according to gender, recent acute gastroenteritis, menstruation and body mass index. Conclusions: The incidence of AMS in children trekking on Jade Mountain is greater than that observed in adults, and was associated with altitude and recent URI.

  • Legionnaires disease after a campervan holiday: a case report
    • Authors: Euser, S. M; Diederen, B. M. W, Bakker, M, Honing, M. L. H, Bruin, J. P, Brandsema, P. S, Reijnen, L, Den Boer, J. W.
      Abstract: This case report describes a case of Legionnaires’ disease for whom the source of infection was the campervan in which the patient had travelled for 3 months. This case shows that Legionnaires’ disease can be acquired by exposure to a relatively new (not previously reported) source that is commonly used as (holiday)transportation vehicle.

  • Mortality of German travellers on passenger vessels
    • Abstract: Background. In the past two decades, more and more Germans decided to spend their holidays on a passenger vessel. This study examined the frequencies and causes of deaths of German travellers aboard passenger vessels of all flags. Methods. The shipboard deaths of all German travellers within the time period from 1998 to 2008 were counted using the German civil central register in Berlin. The available documentation in this register provides information on frequencies, circumstances and causes of deaths on ships. In the above-mentioned period of time, the total cohort of German travellers on cruise ships is estimated to be 5.97 million persons. Results. During the 11-year examination period, 135 shipboard deaths of German passengers [102 males (75.6%) and 33 females (24.4%)] were recorded. Out of these travellers, 110 died on cruise ships. When considering only the passengers on cruise ships (without those on ferries) an average crude mortality rate of 1.8 per 100 000 German passengers was calculated. The crude mortality rate of shipboard death for males and females was 2.5 and 0.8 per 100 000 German passengers with a mean age of 71.2 years [standard deviation (SD) 16.0 years] and 73.3 years (SD 16.0 years), respectively. Significantly, more deceased travellers older than 70 years were observed on traditional cruise ships and resort vessels than on passenger ferries (P = 0.001). The causes of death were documented in 85 cases (63.0%). Out of these documented deaths, 82 (96.5%) cases were regarded to be natural causes (particularly circulatory diseases) and 3 (3.5%) as unnatural causes (twice drowning and once an accidental fall). Conclusions. In spite of the large proportion of unknown causes of death, this study argues for a high significance of internal causes of deaths among German passengers. Thus, ship’s doctors—particularly those on traditional cruise ships—should be well experienced in internal and geriatric medicines.

  • The roles of transportation and transportation hubs in the propagation of
           influenza and coronaviruses: a systematic review
    • Authors: Browne, A; St-Onge Ahmad, S, Beck, C. R, Nguyen-Van-Tam, J. S.
      Abstract: Background. Respiratory viruses spread in humans across wide geographical areas in short periods of time, resulting in high levels of morbidity and mortality. We undertook a systematic review to assess the evidence that air, ground and sea mass transportation systems or hubs are associated with propagating influenza and coronaviruses. Methods. Healthcare databases and sources of grey literature were searched using pre-defined criteria between April and June 2014. Two reviewers screened all identified records against the protocol, undertook risk of bias assessments and extracted data using a piloted form. Results were analysed using a narrative synthesis. Results. Forty-one studies met the eligibility criteria. Risk of bias was high in the observational studies, moderate to high in the reviews and moderate to low in the modelling studies. In-flight influenza transmission was identified substantively on five flights with up to four confirmed and six suspected secondary cases per affected flight. Five studies highlighted the role of air travel in accelerating influenza spread to new areas. Influenza outbreaks aboard cruise ships affect 2–7% of passengers. Influenza transmission events have been observed aboard ground transport vehicles. High heterogeneity between studies and the inability to exclude other sources of infection means that the risk of influenza transmission from an index case to other passengers cannot be accurately quantified. A paucity of evidence was identified describing severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus and Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus transmission events associated with transportation systems or hubs. Conclusion . Air transportation appears important in accelerating and amplifying influenza propagation. Transmission occurs aboard aeroplanes, at the destination and possibly at airports. Control measures to prevent influenza transmission on cruise ships are needed to reduce morbidity and mortality. There is no recent evidence of sea transport accelerating influenza or coronavirus spread to new areas. Further investigation is required regarding the roles of ground transportation systems and transport hubs in pandemic situations.

  • Revisiting tuberculosis risk in Peace Corps Volunteers, 2006-13
    • Authors: Brown, M. L; Henderson, S. J, Ferguson, R. W, Jung, P.
      Pages: 2 - 7
      Abstract: Background. Risk of tuberculosis (TB) is generally considered to be low for long-term travellers, though risk varies with travel destination, duration and purpose. Peace Corps Volunteers (PCVs) serve for 27 months as community-level development workers in various countries around the world and may be exposed to TB in the course of their service. This study examines recent trends in TB in PCVs and compares rates with a previous analysis published by Jung and Banks. Methods. Tuberculosis case data submitted to the Peace Corps’ Epidemiologic Surveillance System by Peace Corps Medical Officers and gathered from Federal Employees Compensation Act claims for latent TB infection (LTBI) and active TB between 2006 and 2013 were aggregated and analysed for trends and significance. Results. Overall, there were 689 cases of LTBI and 13 cases of active TB, for a rate of 0.95 cases of LTBI [95% confidence interval (CI) 0.88–1.02] and 0.02 cases of active TB (95% CI 0.01–0.03) per 1000 Volunteer-months. Both are significantly lower than rates presented in the initial study (P < 0.001). Per-country incidence rates for LTBI ranged from 0.00 to 4.52 cases per 1000 Volunteer-months. Per-country active TB rates ranged from 0.00 to 0.78 cases per 1000 Volunteer-months. Among the 13 cases of active TB, there was one successfully treated case of extensively drug-resistant TB. Conclusions. Overall rates of both active and latent TB in PCVs were significantly lower compared with the previous study period. PCVs continue to have statistically significantly higher rates of active TB compared with the general US population but lower rates compared with other long-term travellers.
