Review 

The contribution of animals to human welfare
Scientific and Technical Review, Vol. 37 (1)

Author(s) : Temple Grandin, ed., 2018

This Review discusses how companion animals and livestock can both make a positive contribution to human welfare. Animals improve the welfare of humans in many ways, ranging from providing companionship, improving mental health, facilitating rescues during natural disasters; and finally, for a number of species, as food. Dogs used in therapy, and as aids for people with disabilities, provide important benefits. Moreover, they can also be used to detect drugs and herd livestock. To ensure the welfare of such important partners, good breeding programmes and high-quality veterinary care are essential, and breeders must be careful to avoid producing dogs with congenital issues.

Rabies
Scientific and Technical Review, Vol. 37 (2)

Author(s) : Anthony Fooks, ed., 2018

This issue of the Review provides the scientists, clinicians, veterinarians, policy-makers and stakeholders involved in rabies control with an up-to-date review of the rabies situation worldwide, from a ‘One Health’ perspective. Rabies is one of the most feared known human diseases and substantial developments have been made in recent years in reducing its burden. This publication discusses the global strategies used for the elimination of terrestrial rabies from reservoir populations, focusing on the elimination of dog-mediated rabies. It considers regional strategies for rabies control and also shows how intergovernmental organisations, such as the OIE, the WHO and the FAO, are working together in a collegiate manner to help to fight the disease worldwide. The adoption of effective strategies against rabies is especially important in regions where its control is still neglected and where the disease remains endemic. Expected in September 2018.

Animal vaccination – Part 2: scientific, economic, regulatory and socio-ethical aspects
Scientific and Technical Review 26 (2)

Author(s) : P.-P. Pastoret, M. Lombard & A.A. Schudel; Ed.: 2007

Vaccination, when available, is undoubtedly the most cost-effective means to prevent and control or even eradicate infectious diseases. In recent years vaccination has also been used for other purposes in animal welfare and production, such as for immuno-castration. In fact the impact of vaccination goes far beyond the simple control of infectious diseases. Vaccination will therefore help to reach many of the objectives of the 2005 Millenium development goals report, especially in the light of the foreseen livestock revolution.
Public perception and disapproval of some veterinary prophylactic measures, such as mass slaughtering of livestock to control epizootic diseases, also contribute to drive vaccination as an alternative. This will be made easier, thanks to recent progress in veterinary vaccinology, such as the availability of marker vaccines. This special issue of the OIE Scientific and Technical Review is aiming at providing useful generic information instead of giving detailed technical descriptions of specific diseases or vaccines.

Biological disasters of animal origin. The role and preparedness of veterinary and public health services
Scientific and Technical Review 25 (1)

Author(s) : M. Hugh-Jones; Ed.: 2006

Since October 2001 the possibility of intended disease outbreaks has been put forward repeatedly in many countries. The history of such events and their impacts are explored and may surprise many by what is possible and yet the uncertainty of the risk. At the same time we can be sure that the ‘old’ diseases will continue to occur. In our global economy, what happens in one corner of the world can threaten us all, and sooner rather than later. The events of the present H5N1 avian influenza pandemic remind us that we do have to be concerned with the threats imbedded in global trade but also with migratory birds ignorant of international boundaries and regulations.

Emerging zoonoses and pathogens of public health concern
Scientific and Technical Review 23 (2)

Author(s) : L.J. King; Ed.: 2004

Emerging zoonoses can occur anywhere in the world and the consequences can be severe. The interdependence of people and animals and the many different factors controlling this relationship have converged to create an environment that is conducive to the emergence of zoonotic pathogens. The recent epidemics of SARS, West Nile virus, and avian influenza demonstrate the global importance of emerging diseases and the important role of Veterinary Services in the prevention, detection, diagnosis, surveillance, response and research activities that are needed to address them. In addition, emerging zoonoses of public health concern are also a sobering reminder of the tremendous trade disruptions and socio-economic damage that this group of diseases can cause.

Veterinary institutions in the developing world: current status and future needs
Scientific and Technical Review 23 (1)

Author(s) : C. de Haan; Ed.: 2004

Veterinary institutions in the developing world need to adapt to the challenges of the increase in animal production (scale and intensity) and trade and in the movement of animals and products of animal origin, all of which significantly increase the threat of animal disease and zoonosis transmission. This adaptation of Veterinary Services will be carried out in the context of the important changes in the public and private sectors that have taken place in recent years: changing concepts regarding the role of government resulted in budget cuts and reduced support for the large number of tasks that the public Veterinary Services traditionally performed. The greater focus of national and international policy-makers on reducing poverty in the developing world also added another dimension to the role of animal health services. All these different trends, led to a change in the division of responsibilities between public and private service providers and between the professional (university educated) and para-professional levels.

Author(s) : E. Correa Melo & F. Gerster; Ed.: 2003

There is a growing demand among producers and consumers for Veterinary Services to protect the health of animals and the safety of products of animal origin for both domestic and international markets. To do this, Veterinary Services rely on the Agreement on the Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (SPS) of the World Trade Organization (WTO), and on the standards defined by the Terrestrial Animal Health Code and the Aquatic Animal Health Code of the OIE.

Scientific and Technical Review 22 (1)

Author(s) : C.I. Lasmézas & D.B. Adams; Ed.: 2003

This special issue of the Review of the OIE deals with transmissible spongiform encephalopathies in animals for a second time. The previous issue on the subject was in June 1992 when the BSE epidemic had reached its peak but before the tragedy of vCJD in people had emerged and the significant spread of the disease to other countries was apparent.

Foot and mouth disease: facing the new dilemmas
Scientific and Technical Review 21 (3)

Author(s) : G.R. Thomson; Ed.: 2002

This authoritative new international manual brings together 42 contributions by eminent international authorities on the major questions of what can be done in the future to handle this highly contagious virus infection more effectively...   AASV

Few will forget the images of soiled cattle and sheep carcasses being mechanically manoeuvred into huge piles, bonfires billowing black smoke and enormous pits containing thousands of carcasses which resulted from the outbreak of foot and mouth disease (FMD) in the United Kingdom in 2001. The harrowing stories of the psychological and economic effects of the ‘stamping-out’ on rural communities added to the horror. What made it worse was the contention that it was all unnecessary. Vaccines, it was argued, could have been used to eradicate the disease more effectively without adverse environmental effects. On the other hand, the UK at that time was very concerned with maintaining access to international markets for its livestock and livestock products bearing in mind the insatiable and unsentimental search of world markets for cheaper and safer food. The major question now is what can and should be done in the future to avoid this approach to controlling epizootic animal diseases which is unacceptable to the public?

Infectious diseases of wildlife: detection, diagnosis and management (Part Two)
Scientific and Technical Review 21 (2)

Author(s) : R.G. Bengis; Ed.: 2002

The growing economic, aesthetic and cultural importance of wildlife in recent decades cannot be overlooked by the veterinary profession. The bi-directional transmission of infectious diseases between wildlife and domestic animals, the zoonotic implications of some diseases as well as the effect of wildlife diseases on the international standards used for trade in domestic animals and animal products, pose a major and continuing challenge to veterinary scientists. 
These issues of the OIE Review will undoubtedly constitute a reference for all those with responsibilities in animal health, veterinary public health and wildlife conservation.

Traceability of animals and animal products
Scientific and Technical Review 20 (2)

Author(s) : H.A. MacDaniel and M.K. Sheridan; Ed.: 2001

Over the past few years, traceability systems used to identify animals, monitor their movements and trace animal products have evolved considerably. It has become crucial to harmonise approved systems that may serve to enhance coherence between trading partners, so as to provide better guarantees and to facilitate international trade in animals and animal products.

Mycobacterial infections in domestic and wild animals
Scientific and Technical Review 20 (1)

Author(s) : E.J.B. Manning & M.T. Collins; Ed.: 2001

Bacteria are now and have always been the dominant form of life on earth. By virtue of their unimaginable variety, overwhelming number and spectacular adaptability to diverse environments, they represent life’s greatest success story. Among the most successful families are the mycobacteria. This volume of the Scientific and Technical Review presents the most current information available on important mycobacterial infections that handicap animal health and hinder global trade.

Diseases of poultry: world trade and public health implications
Scientific and Technical Review 19 (2)

Author(s) : C.W. Beard & M.S. McNulty; Ed.: 2000

Trade in poultry and poultry products occurs on a global scale. While this makes the best breeding and commercial stock available to producers and offers consumers an increasingly greater choice, it has potential drawbacks in terms of spread of poultry diseases between trading partners. It is important to assess and manage these disease risks to ensure that global trade does not result in dissemination of poultry diseases; however, it is also important that the risk of disease should not be used as an unjustified non-tariff trade barrier. This OIE Review entitled ‘Diseases of poultry: world trade and public health implications’ has been commissioned to provide up-to-date information which will allow these twin aims to be reconciled, as far as is possible.

An update on zoonoses
Scientific and Technical Review 19 (1)

Author(s) : P.P. Pastoret; Ed.: 2000

This special issue of the OIE Review is devoted entirely to zoonoses. The most serious zoonoses are often viral in origin, and the viruses concerned are evolving constantly. While such viruses are generally in a state of equilibrium with respect to their hosts, be they individual animals or animal populations, this finding does not hold true for humans, who as a rule are accidental hosts. In the absence of broad-spectrum antivirals, medical science is often unable to counter this type of infection; in such an event, saving human lives may require preventive vaccination.

The economics of animal disease control
Scientific and Technical Review 18 (2)

Author(s) : B.D. Perry; Ed.: 1999

This special issue on the economics of animal disease control is a wide-ranging review of the use of economics in decision-making related to animal disease control and improved animal health. Economics plays an important role in everyday life and decisions. Although economic criteria are regularly used in such decisions, as well as those related to industry and trade, there is sometimes a degree of hesitation before economics are taken into account in decisions concerning investment in animal health programmes. For many with a traditional veterinary background, preference is often given to the use of biological criteria of efficacy and expected outcomes. However, the challenge for the future is to develop an appropriate balance between the biophysical and economic criteria in rational decision-making. This is particularly important for countries contemplating major disease control or eradication programmes, to relieve the burden of a given disease on livestock production, or to open avenues to increased trade in a particular livestock product.

Management of animal health emergencies
Scientific and Technical Review 18 (1)

Author(s) : G. Murray & P.M. Thornber; Ed.: 1999

This compilation of papers on emergency management offers important information for managing animal and aquatic animal disease emergencies. The information and personal experiences described by contributing authors from Member Countries of the OIE will be an invaluable reference publication on this important area of responsibility for veterinary administrators. In this respect, this Review is an important, timely and practical reference document.
The scope of this publication is different from many editions of the Review, in that national Chief Veterinary Officers are the primary authors. This reflects the special role and regulatory responsibility that Chief Veterinary Officers exercise during disease emergencies. Hence, this issue is aimed more at being a practical technical guide than a compilation of scientific papers.

Genetic resistance to animal diseases
Scientific and Technical Review 17 (1)

Author(s) : M.Müller & G.Brem; Ed.: 1998

This OIE Review discusses genetic resistance of farm animal species and explains how progress in the field of genetics leads not only to the protection of animal health, but also to the improved performance of these animals.  

Nowadays, disease resistance can be achieved by immuno/chemoprophylaxis and/or genetic improvement. In a number of instances, however, the application of prophylactic measures has been impossible due to either the non-availability of appropriate and safe products or logistic and management problems in extensive animal husbandry conditions. In addition, the results of certain control programmes have been unfavourable because of inefficiency of the vaccine or drugs used, or undesirable side-effects.

Contamination of animal products: prevention and risks for public health
Scientific and Technical Review 16 (2)

Author(s) : A.S. Ahl & P. Sutmoller; Ed.: 1997

The first two issues of Volume 16 form a set entitled: Contamination of animal products. Issue 16 (1) addresses the risks to animal health of contaminated animal products, while the second issue, Volume 16 (2), is devoted to the examination of hazards to human health from the consumption and use of animal products. As the premier international organisation for animal health, it is not only fitting that the OIE has conducted this study of food safety issues in relation to livestock products, but it is also timely.

The safety of food of animal origin for human consumption has become an essential part of the public health debate both within countries and among them. As international trade increases, the issue of equivalence of food safety systems becomes more significant and risk assessment methods to evaluate this become more critical.
