A resident he's training and seventy one year old Steve Kerns who is recovering from West Nile virus, Kerns remembers the mosquito bite on his neck but very little about the brain infection that landed him in the hospital for a week for at least six months after that. I felt like every five minutes I was being run over by a truck I couldn't work. I couldn't walk very well. And I couldn't focus. A wondered for bit if I'd ever get better now, almost two years later Kern says he's back to about five hours a day on the job making windows and doors, and he started reading again the sounds like you've made tremendous progress.

This is something that needs to be more directly integrated into the curriculum because I think it's going to have such a huge impact on human health. There are no approved curricula for hospitals that might want to tell emerging. Lung specialists about longer pollen seasons as temperatures rise or teach new emergency room physicians to consider more waterborne diseases for patients with fever and diarrhea.

"You saying that there are other species, that are better indicator of West Nile? Yeah. Frozen jays. Yeah. Yeah. Corporal mega hit hard by that really hard they, and they're the first ones when you have that disease show up when you start seeing crow die-offs or raven Diaz, you've got a good indicator got even influence out there. Oh, not west now even influence. I didn't know that. So they're susceptible. Yeah. And this is southern because your body doesn't handle it. Well, or because they're more likely to get stung by mosquitoes. I don't know the answer to that one I don't know enough about it. So, but in West Nile virus the same thing, I mean these viruses have been going, we really expected with West Nile that we would Corbett's a really susceptible west West Nile species, too, so that was where we I indicated it, but we really expected that we would see major die-offs started getting in the in the populations. And, and we did in places so but we also look for high path, avian influenza. That's one of the ones that found in waterfall on his really susceptive. So we use high path high path, high highly pathogenic avian influence. There's always low path low pathogenic avian influenza that center waterfall populations is just endemic and we have it. But when you get in the high pathogenic. That's where you have it kills off major populations of it. And that's a real concern. So, and there's you know, there's avian pox the number of different diseases out there. Abyan it can be spread through populations. So it's probably through touching close proximity feces that kind of stuff. Insect born no, no. What are those theories, there are theories is nothing's have? There's another theory in. I don't understand just one. I mean I understand the concept. But I don't know how true it is that there's just a natural when you bring in, when you reintroduce the species or introduced species, there's a thing where they don't call it. I know founder fact is something entirely different. There's some name for it. I it's like a bloom. Yeah. And then they go like, and then they taper exploiting some environment. For the first time, there's ample food, predators aren't tuned into it yet? And they have this like they, they. Yeah, they bloom. They do really well, and there's a time lag before your predator species kitsch onto it. You know you wind up having the disease issues come along with it. And part of this. Yeah. And then at that point in time the population trails off a little bit. And, and you see that historically in some cases, and we see it with exotic species now native species that come in. I mean I gotta do is look at things like the Great Lakes where you wind up having these zebra mussel populations that just were tremendous blooms. Who were overall the intake pipes and all the rest of it and, and create us, you know, fills this unfilled niche out there or more of greater concern is they replaced native species, because they're more competitive in that environment because they don't have predators or parasites that have adapted to them yet. So they have a competitive edge out there, so yeah, there's some of that. I mean, the other theory is there's, there's been lots of discussion about fire on the landscape in in. This is more a discussion in southeast United States with the large. The forest service has really worked trying and be more active in their management. Get those fuel lodestone, especially in those pine, forests that are fired driven habitats in we're used to have a lot of lightning strikes. Wildfires would move.

"If you give us a synopsis of all, right? You graduated veterinary school, and then you took it in a different direction. I'd the majority veterinarians, but a great direction. Sure, I was fortunate that I had a scholarship a national ROTC scholarship out of high school, so my education. My undergraduate education was paid for by the US army. And then I applied for veterinary school was accepted. And then I asked the army to allow me to defer my service for that scholarship until after veterinary school, and they all agreed. So after graduating from veterinary school, I entered the US army as a captain in the veterinary corps after completing my army, basic officer training and veterinary corps, officer training, I was assigned to the army environmental hygiene agency and Edgewood area, Aberdeen Proving Grammy Maryland, and there I was fortunate enough to be engaged in some CLYDE toxicology research where the army was working on developing. Some new pesticides that would be impregnated in the soldiers clothing to prevent those ticks from incest and sleaze and other animals from the sestina soldiers as they were doing their maneuvers. So during that time, I got him very much interested in indebted, I pathology and was interested in doing a residency on the army said, well, captain topper weeping more than happy to take your applications for this residency program as soon as you finish your overseas assignment. So I was assigned to Nuremberg Germany, not too cold. No is a beautiful sight. In fact, we're going to go. Visit our friends there at the end of the month. But this is there in the Cold War. So it was interesting times in Germany. So as a veterinary corps officer in in Europe at the time, we had an area of response. Ability to take care of the soldiers in that area by taking care of the soldiers. We care the military working dogs that were involved with them. We took care of the public health aspects, such as we inspected, the establishments that were selling food to the US government. We inspected establishments that were storing the food the soldiers eight, and then we also went around and look at how the soldiers were story in the field rations at the time and things like that. But we also provided service to the servicemembers salaries who did pet so we ran full service clinic for the family members pets over there. So it was a very exciting time. And we were engaged in all aspects of veterinary medicine that is in prayer, but finish finish that I was allowed to train and veterinary pathology. So I came back to Washington DC and did a residency and anatomic. Veterinary pathology and followed that up with a tour or I mean, an assignment up at the medical research institute of infectious diseases. It's commonly known as you Sam rid or rid, and I guess for your listener is the it's more famous by being in the movie outbreak because this is where they did research on Ebola and other diseases that are not found within the continental United States. So we supported research and those to help prevent the the soldiers being exposed to them and or prevention and treatment of those during again, any other assignments outside the United States continuing on I was allowed to I apply for and was granted permission to attend more training than did a residency a PHD in clinical pathology at the university of Georgia and from there, I moved on to other. Aspects in the world of military, research and development when I came back at the Walter Reed Army institute of research in Washington DC, and there we do research to help again, everything to prevent disease and to treat any disease in the soldiers. So we support it infectious disease work, we supported combat casualty care work, and we supported prevention and diagnosis of any chemical biological warfare agent. So after twenty two years, I it was time for me to move on from the military. So that was an exciting in great part in my career. However, the second part of my career was to engage in humans pharmaceutical industry, where I went to work for Merck research laboratories, which is the human pharmaceutical side of Merck. The animal side is called Burke animal health, but here again during clinical pathology, we were responsible for providing care. To all the animals who were engaged in developing new drugs and to make sure that they were healthy for these trials. And then once during the trials that any data we collected to them was able to the us to further the development of these important human pharmaceutical drugs. I was elected president Avia may and decided that I could not be working for a corporation because this job entails almost fulltime work. So I retired from there and doing representing the veterinary profession as president on the full-time basis rather. Yes, I am feeling very inadequate very tired. After listening to all that you have done. But I think the listeners can understand why you are the perfect person Dr topper for this segment today. So all right. After that. Let's get back to our scenario. So Missy Missy goes to the grocery store, and as you were saying how much you're involved in making sure that the food supply with safe for the army now, we're having to see that veterinarians are also involved with the food supply that the general public gets so here, she's gross restoring she's going to be getting her spinach. And the reason I bring up spinach it was several years ago about two thousand six here in California where package spinach was a source of illness. And I think it was about three deaths throughout the United States and mom always said, you know, wash your fruits and vegetables, but washing wouldn't have made a difference. Can you comment a little bit about that e coli outbreak the happened at the time and how better narrates were involved? Well, I don't know all the specifics of that one. But I do know, you know, other instances where we call. I was involved. Again. This is something that gets onto the the plants, and you know, as their pick may could be transmitted either from the stuff that is put on as a fertilizer or a individual enduring the packaging of it could have been contamination during the packaging of any of these things or a contamination by one of the workers who were involved with this. We know that you know, there are certain strains of in coli that are much more pathogenic than others. And so, you know, we need to be involved with you know, the source of of these contamination. So we know if when it was found in the beef industry, you know, cattle can be tested to see if they had this certain type of package in the byproducts of the meek can be tested before it's shipped out to see if it's contaminated, and so we can prevent it. In that way. I'm a little less clear on how the prevention is was in the spinach, but you know. Been on that worth it. From UC Davis. And I'm a little bit prejudic- was veterinarians at UC Davis who determine that it was the wildlife in the area that had defecated into the water which got into the watershed which got into incorporated into the spinach itself. So is now learning how these farmers we're going to have to work with wildlife to protect their fields in the watershed. So wasn't getting in there. So it was a kind of a circuitous route. So sorry to search for that one. All no, that's good. I mean, we know how things like by accident. You know, there was a veterinary pathologist who happen to see. She was working up at the Bronx zoo, your on my mind. About that one happened to notice a number of wild birds in crows, etc were dying and she did some further investigation into that. And discover it that it was West Nile virus it was causing those and prove that it was in the United States, and you know, so we know about the West Nile virus. But yeah, it was a veterinary pathologist to happen to investigate and discover that and you know, back and then she consulted with the medical research infectious diseases, and you know, they were worry to work out about the the West Nile virus so played a role in that one. I may be somewhat making this too simplistic, but it was Dr McNamara. I remember her name, and she realized there was an issue product to the CDC's attention. And basically, it's like, oh, you're a nice little veterinarian. No, it's not West Nile go away. But she really believed it, and I. I believe she took it to Walter Reed. Veterinarians there, and they took a look at it and go. Yes, this is West Nile. Yes. So she took it up to coastal all three of the institute of infectious diseases, dad. I was talking about earlier. That's she got to do it. Because I was their level of expertise knows diseases not found in the United States. And you talked about outbreak that yes is a fun movie because it all ends beautifully. But it's based on a real story of what happened in Virginia. Correct. Yeah. So there was a small research facility in reston Virginia that did have some non human primates monkeys of are. And they noticed that they were dying and had some hemorrhagic disease symptoms. So in that case the army because in the CDC because of their expertise and in diseases and the military. The introduce infectious diseases because of their ability to deal with our familiarity, I guess with diseases for knocked down the United States will call in and samples were taken from these animals and. A lot of work was done to properly contain the facility and prevent any spread of the disease outside facility, but it was a dentist guide as an Ebola virus. However, this virus is not the type that we've been reading about in the past few years that spreads through people and causes great morbidity and mortality in these people. But this one was this restricted with a different strain, and it only affected the monkeys that were in this facility or other monkeys. So was able to be contained and no zoonotic or threat to people out of this outbreak. But you know, the veterinarian's from the instituted infectious diseases at the CDC were definitely involved with identification and helping to containing it. You're talking about these diseases that go from people to animals vice versa zone. Diseases. Never. I remember correctly. It's about seventy five percent of all the emerging diseases are considered so not. So veterinarians really have to be involved in this. Yes, it is. A one health like we like to say. So let's see you at your clinic. See an animal who comes in and has diarrhea, and you know, that, you know, once you culture, it that that diarrhea could be the cause for their small style that is with them for also having area. So we know that some of these diseases like bacteria like salmonella or ten transmits easily between animals and people. And so we just all have to be involved with it. So both veterinarians physicians, and it's more than just animals, and man, it's also the environment. So we're all together here in this world is one health and homeland security. I think a lot of people don't realize veterinarians are involved with that. So here we have the abolish that came into reston accidentally. But there could be cases where maybe they're using it to try to disrupt the economy. By bringing in foot and mouth disease. Like they had in cattle in the United Kingdom that was the real economically devastating event. Yes. So, you know, the department of homeland security and working with the US department of agriculture and animal plant, health and inspection system. Do are looking for animals who are coming in the country that maybe ill themselves and prevent this. You know, the natural introduction of diseases bioterrorism is always a threat.

"Neuro invasive West Nile virus last summer, Harris tells the KRLD morning news the disease left him paralyzed and fighting for his life started right, about a year ago right now we think that the the mosquito that found its, way to me it happened in plano there. Were five, cases of West Nile in plano last year and I was I was the third case and Right right now I was. Just kind of feel when the little sick I. Didn't know if maybe I had the flu that kind of thing I actually had. Been, to see my doctor said I would likely something viral and and so I. Just couldn't kick it. And so where it ultimately manifested itself as I went out to west Texas on a dove, hunting trip for opening weekend on September first the last year and I just wasn't able to get, out of bed really the whole time and then the night of, I guess early morning on September second. I woke up about two thirty in the morning to. Get something to drink and I fell. Out of bed and I couldn't move and so I. Laid on the ground for about three hours. Before anybody else woke up and they ultimately took me to a critical access hospital out. There in, west Texas where they stabilize me but ultimately we decided that I, needed to come back. To DFW so I got a helicopter ride to medical city, plano where I my situation quickly deteriorated within twenty Four. Hours, of arrival I was on the ventilator I couldn't breathe I was completely paralysed, and we started the journey that is still ongoing now. To where I went from being totally paralyzed to now were I'm able to get around, I'm able to walk I'm able to drive I'm able to go to work but we still we're still. Working on getting better each and every day and you know there. Were times Ben where we were really afraid that. You weren't going to be able to pull out What what did you keep saying to yourself. How how were you going through in your mind when, you couldn't move you. Know it's just not something you ever, expect to feel I, mean it's a complete it's. A little strange, feeling and and I really the burden that my family had the bear is really something. That stands, out, because I, was I was pretty heavily Medicated initially but I mean the fact that the doctors and the, providers had to have the conversation with my wife that you know he might. Not make it out of here he might not make it home if he does survive he might not improve he might. Not, ever regain use of. You know his mobility you're, reduce of his. Limbs and so really I kind of go back to that and think how how hard it was for them and certainly Scott you, know we have two little kids, at home and they, ended up being great. Motivating factors for me stabilize it, started getting better, and started doing therapy and that kind of stuff so. I've gotta get, back and I've got to get better to to be able to take care of my little people yeah The ironic thing is your family's been. In the medical business the hospital for a long time and now you had there you were you had to use that. System I certainly never expected to be a patient I I worked at the hospital where, I went and plano for a. Long time and I was a part of the administrative team when we were planning the expansion and the neuroscience ICU where I stayed and I was there for construction I. Watched it all go up and I never. Expected that I would be ultimately a patient that needed to? Utilize? The services that that that medical city provided to me we've, just have a few seconds here. Ben what do you say to people. Who don't take West Nile seriously It's extremely, serious and this is the time of year. Where the prevalence of West Nile is is.

"Forty one a former plano city leader, is, sharing history, about how he. Survived West Nile virus Clayton Neville sat down to talk with Ben Harris he joins us now with the story Clayton good morning Dave good morning that's right Ben Harris served on the plano city council for eight years in fact he was, the mayor pro tem time there at. The plano city council he's a well known executive at medical city plano, and he's thirty eight years. Old I note that because this, time last year he was fighting for his life with West. Nile virus and his age is significant because a lot of people think. That West Nile is more likely of in people, that are younger maybe babies or even the elderly will here's an example of. A very healthy thirty eight year old nearly. Said he was in his prime he went hunting in. West. Texas and one morning, he woke up, and wasn't able to move he was completely paralyzed because West Nile virus had got into his spine it was a neuro, invasive form of West Nile, and it actually got into his spinal cord in college him to be paralysed he was in the. Hospital for five months but this story really is. Also about how he's recovered Dave I, was at a His house yesterday seeing the, pictures of when he was really fighting for his wife less than a year. Ago and he was opening the door for. Me on his lunch break for work and he's well. On. His way to recovery Yeah that's great to hear of course but I I was shocked as, you said first of all by his age when when this occurred to him and Secondly the. Severity of what happened to him, as you pointed out usually when we hear about when we hear about, people dying from West Nile virus it's people who are old or have some other underlying problem, before they contacted the West Nile but this stuff is is nasty explain a, little bit more about what happened to him So it's a mosquito borne illness for those that don't know. And basically he got a mosquito bite he. Doesn't know exactly when. He would run on the trails in plano nearest house. He also went to a lot of his. Son's baseball games he said he was outdoor watch but he got bit by. Mosquito and then contracted the West, Nile virus so from there he said he felt sick he felt a few symptoms just like he would. Maybe with a normal cold he just felt like he was a little under the weather, until that morning he woke up and couldn't move from there it continued. To progress he's lost less more and more control of his. Body, not only could he, not move. His arms, he couldn't move his legs and, only had really control of what's his face and as the days, went on, it continued to get worse in the hospital until doctors worked, to get the virus out of his system and then it was all about the, rehab they to teach him how to walk again how to hold the pencil again and all. Of those kind of things and, he was off of work for well over six months Still he doesn't have full control of her shoulders he's still slowly recovering but he's now, able to function again as an executive at the hospital and as a. Father and as a husband but yeah it completely debilitated him Wow Did it take to take doctor some some time at the hospital to diagnose to figure out what was wrong with. Him Yeah I think. It took according to Ben and they get to between two and three weeks, for, them to really have a good. Idea although he said that, after he was airlifted from west Texas to medical city plano they had a feeling pretty quickly it. Could be West Nile but. It wasn't for several weeks until all the testing was in that they did confirm and. Back he did have West Nile he was one of close to six people in plano last year that had West Nile. And I think last year the West Nile virus. Claimed over one hundred and fifty lives so been was was very, lucky he credits his family and he credits the doctors but what he's doing now is sharing his story, and you know really recommending people that they protect themselves for misdeed obits because he was. Just, a normal guy at. Plano a plano husband that we're now running and got, a mosquito bite and nearly killed them well we all get them we'll get the mosquito bites are very difficult to avoid but but You know you can do.
