Abstract

This paper describes 50 years of personal experience in dealing with a range of animal and zoonotic diseases at national and global level, using a series of selected examples to illustrate both the nature of the various dilemmas and difficulties faced, and the way in which they were solved using...

Abstract

Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is caused by a virus of the genus Aphthorvirus of the family Picornaviridae. There is great scientific need for determining the transmission dynamics of FMD virus (FMDV) by drawing more attention to the livestock-wildlife interface areas. A variety of literature...

Abstract

Using a new 'guided group interview' technique, 445 village animal health workers (VAHWs) from 19 provinces in Cambodia were interviewed to establish their current practices and knowledge. The aim of the study was to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the VAHW resource in village-level bovine ...

Abstract

Speed is paramount in the diagnosis of highly infectious diseases, such as foot-and-mouth disease (FMD), as well as for emerging diseases; however, simplicity is required if a test is to be deployed in the field. Recent developments in molecular biology have enabled the specific detection of FMD...

Abstract

Phylogeography data are of paramount importance in studying the molecular epidemiology dynamics of foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV). In this study, epithelial samples and oesophageal-pharyngeal fluids were collected from 361 convalescent animals (cattle and buffaloes) in the field throughout...

Abstract

Foot-and-mouth disease virus, a highly contagious pathogen that can cause lameness, low weight and decreased milk production, is a scourge of agricultural livestock around the world. Although the acute phase of infection is rarely fatal, infection may persist in animals that have apparently...

Abstract

The definition of the spatial relatedness between infectious and susceptible animal groups is a fundamental component of spatio-temporal modelling of disease outbreaks. A common neighbourhood definition for disease spread in wild and feral animal populations is the distance between the centroids of ...

Abstract

Some recorded movements of cattle and sheep during the initial phase of the 2001 Foot-and-Mouth Disease (FMD) outbreak in the UK, before the ban on animal movements was imposed, are analysed descriptively using Social Network Analysis (SNA) techniques. The phenomenon of diffusion within the network ...

Abstract

There was a good correlation between the content of 140S viral particles of type A27-Colombia, O1-Colombia and O1-Campus aphthovirus, and the protective dose of vaccine for cattle. The technique of determining the content of 140S particles is dealt with in parts I and II, on pages 13-26 and 27-38...
