Was ancient Rome the perfect environment for zoonoses transmission?

Investigation published in Travel Medicine and Infectious Disease

In Press

Environmental and cultural factors driving the emergence and the maintenance of transmissible diseases are numerous. Those specific for the most common zoonoses have received little attention in historic studies, despite they were probably a heavy component of the total disease burden in antiquity and, therefore, a keystone of History. We want to provide a deductive approach to some of them, despite most of the possible associations between risk or predisposing factors and specific diseases are merely theoretical. However, since the most common zoonoses are still a heavy disease burden, they probably were an important part of the roman “metropolitan disease pool”
