Rocky Mountain spotted fever in Mexico: past, present, and future

The Lancet Infectious Diseases

Jesús Felipe Gónzalez Roldán, et al.

2017 Rocky Mountain spotted fever, a tick-borne zoonosis caused by Rickettsia rickettsii, is among the most lethal of all infectious diseases in the Americas. In Mexico, the disease was first described during the early 1940s by scientists who carefully documented specific environmental determinants responsible for devastating outbreaks in several communities in the states of Sinaloa, Sonora, Durango, and Coahuila. These investigators also described the pivotal roles of domesticated dogs and Rhipicephalus sanguineus sensu lato (brown dog ticks) as drivers of epidemic levels of Rocky Mountain spotted fever. After several decades of quiescence, the disease re-emerged in Sonora and Baja California during the early 21st century, driven by the same environmental circumstances that perpetuated outbreaks in Mexico during the 1940s. This Review explores the history of Rocky Mountain spotted fever in Mexico, current epidemiology, and the multiple clinical, economic, and social challenges that must be considered in the control and prevention of this life-threatening illness.

Elimination of Onchocerciasis from Mexico.

PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases

González-Roldán JF, et al.

2015 Mexico is one of the six countries formerly endemic for onchocerciasis in Latin America. Transmission has been interrupted in the three endemic foci of that country and mass drug distribution has ceased. Three years after mass drug distribution ended, post-treatment surveillance (PTS) surveys were undertaken which employed entomological indicators to check for transmission recrudescence.

Epidemiology of tobacco use in Mexico

Salud Pública de México

Kuri-Morales PA, González-Roldán JF, Hoy MJ, Cortés-Ramírez M.

2006 Tobacco use is a worldwide public health problem. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), smoking is the second principal cause of death in the world, with almost five million deaths annually. Information about tobacco consumption is essential in order to improve the focus of prevention and control measures and thereby succeed in the struggle against tobacco use. This literature review, carried out in Mexico in 2006, presents a comparative analysis of information about smoking prevalence from the National Addictions Survey 2002, as it relates to results obtained in previous surveys. This review also presents information about youth and passive smoking, tobacco consumption in the medical profession and impact on mortality as aspects relevant to the analysis of this epidemic. Epidemiological information is viewed in the context of the tobacco use component of the Plan of Action on Addiction and the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.
