Sažetak
Zoonotic infections are common among forestry workers. The aim of our study was to determine the prevalence of zoonoses caused by different viruses (hantaviruses - HTV ; tick borne encephalitis virus -TBEV ; West-Nile virus – WNV ; lymphocite choriomeningitis virus - LCMV) and bacteria (Borrelia burgdorferi - BB) among forestry workers in the central Posavina region, Croatia, as well as to detect the risk factors for their transmission. We tested sera of 295 forestry workers in seven different administrative forestry units, and 60 controls, for the presence of specific IgG antibodies. Each worker was interviewed with epidemiological questionnaire. 105 wild rodents were trapped and tested for HTV and LCMV. Some immune parameters were measured to test their possible interplay with chronic diseases development linked to addressed zoonoses. In 37, 29% foresters, we detected specific IgG antibodies to BB. However, only 4, 41% of the foresters had previous infections with TBEV. Nova Gradiška and Slavonski Brod are known as endemic regions for hantaviruses (HTNV). However, high percentage of foresters (16.3%) infected with hantaviruses was unexpected. So far, we did not have any frank evidence about the infection with LCMV in Croatia. The 5, 08% of foresters previously infected with LCMV strongly indicate the circulation of the virus in Croatia. Only two – 0, 7% foresters were previously infected with West Nile virus.
