New developments in major vector-borne diseases
Part II: Important diseases for veterinarians
Scientific and Technical Review, Vol. 34 (2)

Author(s) : S. Zientara, D. Verwoerd & P-P. Pastoret ; Ed. 2015

The second volume of this Review principally looks at viral diseases, but also considers bacterial diseases and, finally, parasitic diseases. The description of each disease has been updated in accordance with the most recent scientific research, focusing on epidemiology and control. Particular emphasis is placed on emerging diseases (such as infection with the Schmallenberg virus) and diseases that have a zoonotic component (such as West Nile fever). Diseases that have experienced a recent geographic expansion (bluetongue, fever due to the Chikungunya virus) are also discussed. In total, twenty-nine diseases are covered.

New developments in major vector-borne diseases
Part I: An overview
Scientific and Technical Review, Vol. 34 (1)

Author(s) : S. Zientara, D. Verwoerd & P-P. Pastoret ; Ed. 2015

The first volume of this Review focuses on the most important arthropod vectors (insects and ticks) and describes their taxonomy, biology, competence and development. It begins by defining ‘vector’, ‘vector-borne disease’ and ‘emerging disease’ and provides explanations that are in line with the OIE understanding of these terms. The zoonotic risks of infections transmitted by arthropod vectors are also discussed, as is the genetic resistance of certain vertebrate hosts to infection. In addition, this volume considers the influence of climatic and anthropogenic changes on the distribution of vectors and the infections they transmit. The last part of this volume focuses on surveillance and control methods for these infections.

One Health
Scientific and Technical Review, Vol. 33 (2)

Author(s) : William B. Karesh, Ed. 2014

In recent years, the concept of ‘One Health’ has gained wide acceptance in the scientific community as well as the attention of the development community, policy-makers and politicians. International bodies such as the OIE, the UN agencies, and the World Bank have adopted a ‘One Health’ approach in their collaborative efforts to control avian and zoonotic influenza with pandemic potential and other diseases of animal origin on both a local and global scale. In this special issue of the Review, governmental representatives, organisational heads and experts on these issues from around the world provide insights and experiences that lead readers through the progression of ‘One Health’ from concept to perspectives to practice.

Changing trends in managing aquatic animal disease emergencies
Scientific and Technical Review 27 (1)

Author(s) : E.-M. Bernoth; Ed.: 2008

With the increase in the culture of ‘new’ aquatic animal species and the consequential discovery of new and emerging diseases, it appears timely to provide an update on the range of disease emergency management strategies. The main purpose of this volume of the Review is therefore to provide a state-of-the-art compilation and assessment of aquatic animal disease emergency management strategies, covering policies as well as operational tools, from international to farm levels. It aims to provide useful generic information on the different issues surrounding the management of aquatic animal disease emergencies, written by world specialists.

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.

Biotechnology applications in animal health and production
Scientific and Technical Review 24 (1)

Author(s) : A.A. MacKenzie; Ed.: 2005

Some of the most promising applications of biotechnology are in the field of animal health and production, in areas such as assisted reproduction, increased disease resistance, nano-based diagnostic and ‘smart’ treatment delivery systems, increasingly improved vaccines and refined diagnostic techniques.However, it is essential that this new technology be thoroughly assessed and implemented in a responsible manner. This Review identifies national, regional and international policies, institutions and regulatory frameworks, and discusses the role of international standard-setting bodies, in particular the World Organisation for Animal Health(OIE).

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.
