Aquatic Animal Health Code, 20th edition 2017
2 Aquatic Animal Health Code, 20th edition 2017
9295108450 / 9789295108455 New
 
2017. 30cm. Pp.306. Softbound.

The value of the Aquatic Code is twofold: firstly, the sanitary measures recommended are the result of consensus among the Veterinary Authorities of OIE Members, and secondly, it constitutes a reference within the WTO SPS Agreement as an international standard for animal health and zoonoses of aquatic animals, as well as a key standard for the prevention and control of aquatic animal diseases.

The 2017 Aquatic Code is arranged in sections as follows: Section 1 includes chapters on notification of OIE listed diseases, criteria for listing aquatic animal diseases, OIE listed diseases and surveillance; Section 2 includes chapters on import risk analysis; Section 3 includes chapters on the quality of aquatic animal health services; Section 4 includes chapters on general recommendations for disease prevention and control; Section 5 includes chapters focused on topics relating to trade measures, import and export procedures and certification; Section 6 includes chapters on the control of hazards in aquatic animal feed and responsible and prudent use of antimicrobial agents in aquatic animals; Section 7 includes chapters on welfare of farmed fish during transport and killing; Sections 8 to 11 include disease specific chapters for OIE listed diseases of amphibians, crustaceans, molluscs and fish, and are designed to prevent the disease in question being introduced into the importing country, taking into account the nature of the commodity and the aquatic animal health status of the exporting country.

The 2017 edition includes updates of the table of contents and glossary, and revised text included in Chapter 1.1. Notification of diseases and provision of epidemiological information and Chapter 5.1. General obligations related to certification. Chapter 4.3. Disinfection of aquaculture establishments and equipment has been extensively revised and the title amended accordingly. Chapter 9.2. Infection with yellow head virus genotype 1 has been amended to clarify the scope of this chapter and the title revised accordingly. In addition, some minor consequential amendments have been made in Articles 1.4.3., 1.5.2., 2.1.4., 4.2.3. and 4.6.3. to ensure that the use of ‘vector’ is consistent with the new definition of ‘vector’.

Guide to Terrestrial Animal Health Surveillance
3 Guide to Terrestrial Animal Health Surveillance
9290448423 / 9789290448426 New
 
2015. 30cm. Pp.ix, 108. Photos & figures. Softbound.

Provides timely and relevant information to allow early warning for rapid response to reduce the spread and mitigate the impact of disease.

This practical handbook is intended to be used mainly by Veterinary Services or other competent authorities, their staff and experts as a tool for strengthening the design, implementation and evaluation of surveillance systems for diseases of relevance for terrestrial animals in their country. Reflects the contribution of experts in surveillance methodology from across the world. Recognising the diversity of animal husbandry and other situations in Member Countries and the dynamic nature of animal health, the document presents a flexible framework for integrating surveillance approaches that meet both national and international needs and that should remain relevant as surveillance evolves to embrace new challenges and opportunities.

Veterinary services complying with OIE standards on quality are a cornerstone for effective passive and active surveillance activities, as well as efficient public-private partnerships between official and private veterinarians and animal owners, hunters and rangers in conservation areas.

Handbook on Import Risk Analysis for Animals and Animal Products. I. Introduction and qualitative risk analysis. II. Quantitative risk analysis
4 Handbook on Import Risk Analysis for Animals and Animal Products. I. Introduction and qualitative risk analysis. II. Quantitative risk analysis
9290448075 / 9789290448075 New
 
2004-2010. 2 volumes. 30cm. Pp.98 ; 134. Softbound.

The importation of animals and their products involves a degree of disease risk to the importing country, represented by one or several diseases or pathogenic agents.

OIE Members are strongly encouraged to base their sanitary measures on international standards such as the OIE Terrestrial Code and the OIE Aquatic Code. In the absence of relevant standards or when Members choose to adopt a higher level of protection than that provided by such standards, science-based risk analysis is essential to determine whether the importation of a particular commodity poses a significant risk to human or animal health and, if so, what sanitary measures could be adopted to reduce that risk to an acceptable level. However, the level of protection applied to imports must not be different to that applied to products within the domestic market.

In this regard, the principal aim of import risk analysis is to provide importing countries with an objective and defensible method of assessing the disease risks associated with the importation of animals and their products.

With the support of the Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale dell'Abruzzo e del Molise 'G. Caporale' at Teramo (an OIE Collaborating Centre), an OIE ad hoc Group of internationally renowned experts has developed a comprehensive treatise on the subject.

Volume I of this Handbook introduces the concepts of import risk analysis and discusses qualitative risk analysis while Volume II addresses quantitative risk analysis.

The key issues in the discipline are explained within the frameworks provided by the WTO Agreement on the Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures and the chapters in both Codes on risk analysis.

The Handbook provides practical guidance to Veterinary Services confronted with the need to analyse the risks posed by imports, to ensure that stakeholders, risk analysts and decision-makers can be confident that the disease risks posed have been identified and can be managed effectively. The Handbook is also useful as a training aid to address the critical need for capacity building in this discipline.

Most of the recent emerging diseases are of animal origin, and nearly all are potential zoonoses. Over the last decade, nearly one new emerging disease has appeared each year and around 75% of them are zoonotic in nature. West Nile fever and avian influenza epidemics, and the recent rabies upsurge in Eastern Europe bear witness to the vitality of emerging diseases the world over.

This third revised and enlarged French edition of P.N. Acha and B. Szyfres’s original work, Zoonoses et maladies transmissibles communes à l’homme et aux animaux, comes just at the right time. It updates both the earlier French edition and the English edition 'Zoonoses and Communicable Diseases Common to Man and Animals' (PAHO/WHO, 2003) and contains information obtained using new technologies, incorporating the findings of scientific progress in various fields. The wealth of documentation contained in this volume will be of interest to a broad audience.

9295108310 / 9789295108318 New
 
2017. 29cm. Pp.300. Softbound.

Reviews the use of animal pathogens and zoonotic agents as bioweapons. More specifically, it examines their use throughout history, explores current disease trends and threats and evaluates the use of animals as sentinels for early detection of outbreaks affecting animals and/or humans, whether the outbreaks be of natural, accidental or deliberate origin.

Animal diseases, including zoonoses, have the potential to negatively impact economies, the environment, society, and public health. It is currently thought that over 60% of human diseases and over 80% of agents that can be used for bio-terrorism are of animal origin. The emergence and spread of animal diseases, including zoonoses, is at an all-time high. This increase in disease emergence and spread is thought to be the result of an increase in intensive farming, global travel, human pressure on ecosystems and social unrest.

This review also looks at the potential impacts of animal pathogens, including zoonotic agents, on economies, social unrest, food security, and public health. It reviews current frameworks for an international response to a biological event and explores current United Nations mechanisms for response to an alleged use of biological agents. This volume also explores technological advances for early detection, surveillance, and response to a disease event, and concludes by discussing systems for strengthening global biosecurity and resilience and considering methods of ensuring the sustainability of these systems.

Salmonella species are prominent and enduring pathogens worldwide, which represent a challenge for both animal and human health. This review provides an extensive summary of the prevalence, epidemiology and control of Salmonella in non-avian livestock, as well as a review of attribution studies relating it to human disease.

This organism has many attributes that can confound simple approaches to its control on farms. These include a varied repertoire in antigenic structure and expression and in the extent and various manifestations of infection (serovars). Variation is also seen in the degree of adaptation by serovars to particular host species, and these differences can greatly affect the approaches, and success, of control regimes for livestock. The varied pathways implicated in the faecal-oral route of Salmonella infection in humans include the consumption and handling of contaminated food and water, direct animal contact and interpersonal spread. The attribution of sources for cases of salmonellosis is a developing field, with important implications for the focus of resources for prevention and control.

2010. 29cm. Pp.350. Numerous photos, figures & maps (mostly colour), indices. Softbound.

Both scientific and philatelic, Wild Mammals : New Classification of the Ungulates is a unique and wholly original book on hoofed animals, which deserves to be discovered by a wider public.

Jean-Pierre Mangin, President of the World Academy for Philately, one of its three authors, took up the challenge to avoid using photographs to illustrate the book. In all, he has selected two thousand stamps, two hundred coins, notes, maximum cards and post cards for its iconography. A first for a zoology book destined for the general public. Claude Guintard, Veterinary Doctor of Sciences at the Natural History Museum, Lecturer on Comparative Anatomy at the Nantes Veterinary School, provided scientific backing. Alain François, veterinarian, was in charge of all aspects concerned with the protection and hunting of wild game.

Marie-Noëlle Goffin, a stamp artist, has completed the visuals with eighteen drawings, in particular when the stamps provided no adequate illustrations. Parallel text in French and English.

2004. 30cm. Pp.xx, 361. Softbound.

Throughout the 20th and into the 21st century, control strategies for rabies in Europe have significantly reduced the human burden of disease.

Rabies has been successfully eradicated from many European countries and in Historical Perspective of Rabies in Europe and the Mediterranean Basin leading experts describe the various approaches that have been taken.

This comprehensive historical review aims to provide scientists, veterinarians and policy-makers with an historical account and expert analysis of rabies from ancient times to today. Readers will benefit from several expertly drafted articles brought together in a single volume. Each chapter is clear and concise and focuses on a different region in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

The book includes country-specific rabies reports from the United Kingdom, Ireland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, the European parts of Russia, Belarus and Ukraine, Poland, the Czech Republic, the Slovak Republic, Germany, Denmark, Austria, Hungary, Italy, Croatia, Bosnia, Slovenia, Macedonia, Albania, Greece, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, the Iberian Peninsula, Turkey, Cyprus, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan, Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Malta, Tunisia and Morocco.

Additional chapters describe rabies in the ancient world and the history of dog rabies in the Mediterranean Basin, and other chapters cover the different epidemiological models of rabies, such as the epidemiology and ecology of fox rabies in Europe; a description of the computer analysis of fox-rabies epidemics is also included.

Rabies virus variants and the molecular epidemiology of the disease in Europe are discussed in chapters describing Lyssavirus infections in European bats and Europe as a source of rabies for the rest of the world.

Following the first description of rabies from ancient scriptures the animal/human relationship is explored further through chapters entitled ‘Folklore, perceptions, science and rabies prevention and control’, ‘Human rabies and its prevention’ and ‘European rabies control and its history’.

Finally, the role of international organisations, such as the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the European Union (EU), is discussed in a chapter entitled ‘International co-operation and the role of international organisations’.

This book is essential reading for anyone involved in disease control policies and especially those involved in the control of rabies.

185339503X / 9781853395031 New
 
2006. 26cm. Pp.vxi,i,254. Text figures & maps. Paperback.

The one-humped camel, or dromedary, is one of the worlds hardiest domesticated animals. A vital source of transport, meat, milk and income for pastoralists in the Sahel, East Africa, the Middle East and South Asia, the camel can carry heavy loads for days in some of the worlds most hostile conditions. But even camels fall ill.

A Field Manual of Camel Diseases is the first practical guide to camel diseases designed for use in low technology environments. The manual details some 80 major camel diseases and conditions, ranging from abortions to wry neck syndrome. For each disease, the authors give the disease signs, its causes, and simple prevention and treatment methods. Both scientific and tried and tested traditional treatments are presented, thus enabling the veterinarian or livestock practitioner to make the most appropriate choice in the prevailing circumstances. A section on procedures explains how to examine a camel, take samples for laboratory analysis and apply various types of medicines.

Written in straightforward language, avoiding scientific terminology wherever possible. Technical vocabulary is explained in a comprehensive glossary. Organised by the symptom or sign of the disease and the part of the body most affected to help rapid identification. Local and scientific names of diseases and plants are given, enabling enhanced communication and understanding between pastoralist and veterinarian. A list of common medicines and their dosages acts as an aide-memoire. Illustrated throughout by artists familiar with camels to show clearly the diseases and how to treat them.

Foot and Mouth Disease Vaccination and Post-vaccination Monitoring, FAO/OIE Guidelines, Metwally, Samia & Susanne Münstermann
24 Metwally, Samia & Susanne Münstermann Foot and Mouth Disease Vaccination and Post-vaccination Monitoring, FAO/OIE Guidelines
9295108256 / 9789295108257 New
 
2017. 30cm. Pp.78. Softbound.

The past decade has been an exciting period for the control of foot and mouth disease (FMD). The Progressive Control Pathway for FMD (PCP-FMD) was developed to provide a novel stepwise methodology for a cost-effective, risk-management approach to FMD control, and it is now the backbone for the implementation of the FAO-OIE Global Foot and Mouth Disease Control Strategy.

The costs of vaccination, one of the most important tools for managing this devastating disease, represent 90% of the total expense of FMD control, so it is essential to plan and evaluate vaccine and vaccination effectiveness. These guidelines provide expert advice on how to ensure the success of vaccination programmes. They are designed to guide and assess national or sub-national vaccination programmes at various stages of the PCP-FMD, and will be equally helpful for countries looking to regain FMD-free status following an incursion of FMD, in accordance with the standards in the OIE Terrestrial Animal Health Code. They stress the importance of having up-to-date information on the virus strains circulating in a given area and highlight the importance of effective Veterinary Services in the implementation of FMD control programmes.

Given that most readers and users may have a broad background in disease management and may not necessarily be FMD specialists, the contributors have sought to provide a balance of scientific background, methodology and practical examples.

Brucellosis : Recent Developments in Diagnosis and Epidemiology Towards 'One Health', Plumb, G ;  S. Olsen & G. Pappas (editors)
26 Plumb, G ; S. Olsen & G. Pappas (editors) Brucellosis : Recent Developments in Diagnosis and Epidemiology Towards 'One Health'
9290449195 / 9789290449195 New
 
2013. 30cm. Pp.295. Softbound.

'Brucellosis : Recent Developments in Diagnosis and Epidemiology' presents a comprehensive overview of the state of knowledge of the ecology of brucellosis, a clearer understanding of the current situation and a summary of the outlook for the future, so as to allow the disease to be neglected no longer, or at least to be recognised as neglected.

The study of zoonotic brucellosis served as a basis for some of the great early advances in epidemiology, yet the disease remains the most common chronic bacterial infection in the world. It continues to cause important medical, veterinary, socioeconomic and conservation problems, mainly because its overall burden remains underestimated and often neglected.

Brucellosis manifests anywhere and knows no borders, moving liberally amongst humans, livestock, and terrestrial and aquatic wildlife. There is a need, therefore, for critical deliberation of its epidemiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and prevention and management.

In responding to this need, the global scientific and technical community has recently made several advances : it has increased our understanding of molecular determinants and cell internalisation mechanisms; improved molecular characterisation techniques (leading to a better understanding of evolution, host specificity, and pathogenicity); developed more accurate multivariate empirical models of disease transmission and persistence probabilities; made progress in the integration of spatial epidemiology techniques; designed and implemented long-term adaptive risk management systems; developed new approaches to applying ecological principles to wildlife brucellosis in large landscape-scale environments; made innovative advances in vaccinology; and gained insights into emergent strains and novel hosts. Yet, despite these notable advances, there remain important challenges in the areas of risk assessment and management, the adoption of sustainable control interventions, and capacity building for improved epidemiological and economic decision-making.

In line with the emergence of the information age, exciting advances in brucellosis are being witnessed through the increasing global integration of brucellosis science and management communities. Indeed, one of the purposes of this issue of the OIE Scientific and Technical Review is to further encourage enterprising outreach amongst the human, wildlife, and livestock brucellosis communities, and thus deliberately nurture this continuing integration towards a One Health approach involving disease prevention and control programmes at the animal source.

As H.V. Wyatt observed, ‘History may repeat as farce, but diseases recur with historical memories.’
