FAO JECFA MonographsAt this session, three substances were evaluated for the first time for the animal species concerned, avilamycin, monensin and narasin. Four substances were reassessed, dexamethasone, tilmicosin, triclabendazole and tylosin. The residue monographs provide information on chemical identity and properties of the compounds, pharmacokinetics and metabolism, residue depletion studies and analytical methods validated and us
Basic texts on meat hygiene, animal feeding and antimicrobial resistance, including the code of hygienic practice for meat, the code of practice for good animal feeding, a glossary of terms and definitions (Residues of Veterinary Drugs in Foods), and more. This first edition includes the texts adopted by the Codex Alimentarius Commission up to 2007.
The need for access to antimicrobials in both human and veterinary medicine is critical. The expert meeting considered various lists of critically important antimicrobials, established priorities, and identified key principles for a simple, practical approach, adaptable to real life. The report also includes recommendations to national governments.

Series: FAO Animal Production and Health ProceedingsThe main objective of the Consultative Group on Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia (CBPP) is to foster collaboration among the various stakeholders on CBPP disease management and provide the technical platform for discussions and policy direction for adaptive research relating to various aspects of CBPP disease. The Third Consultative Group meeting was attended by a wide array of CBPP e
Series: FAO Animal Production and Health PapersBrucellosis is still a major disease problem in the Mediterranean region, western Asia, parts of Africa and Latin America. Reduction in human brucellosis cases is a good indicator of successful progress in the control of animal brucellosis. The zoonotic significance of brucellosis therefore requires concerted efforts for control through intersectoral collaboration between ministries of agri
Series: FAO Animal health manualsRift Valley fever is one of the most significant zoonotic disease problems in Africa. The occurrence of the highly fatal haemorrhagic human disease syndrome, similar to Ebola and other haemorrhagic fevers, generates a degree of panic among the human populations at risk. RVF is highly contagious for humans if animals are viraemic at the time of slaughtering. In susceptible livestock populations, it is res

Many of the more progressive recent developments in animal health have been focused around participatory epidemiology. For many, livestock is a source of food and income generation, and problems surrounding lack of access to veterinary services, drugs, and information can severely impact upon the quality of the animal healthcare available.This issue discusses community participation, policy, and institutional change. It highlights recen
