    About This Project

    Leptospirosis is a potentially life-threatening bacterial infection of humans and other mammals which can lead to organ failure and/or meningitis. Rodents abundant in urban and rural environments are the most important reservoirs and sources of Leptospira infection. This study is an investigation of the non-native rodent, Nutria, and their association with an increase in Oregon cases.
