Strategies For Reducing Drug And Chemical Residues In Food Animals from the Author: Ronald E. Baynes. Highlighting international approaches; the book details strategies to minimize contamination, residue monitoring programs, and classes of drugs and chemicals that pose contaminant risk in livestock. Focuses attention on drug and chemical residues in edible animal products Covers novel computational, statistical, and mathematical strategies for dealing with chemical exposures in food animals Details major drug classes used in food animal production and their residue risks Highlights efforts at harmonizing and the differences among areas like US, EU, Canada, Australia, South America, China, and Asia, where the issue of chemical exposures has significant impact on livestock products Ties veterinary clinical practice and the use of these drugs in food animals with regulatory standards and mitigation practices

Toward Safer Food from the Author: Sandra Professor Hoffmann. In 1998, a National Academy of Sciences panel called for an integrated, risk-based food safety system. This goal is widely embraced, but there has been little advance in thinking about how to integrate knowledge about food safety risks into a system- wide risk analysis framework. Such a framework is the essential scientific basis for better priority setting and resource allocation to improve food safety. Sandra Hoffmann and Michael Taylor bring together leading scientists, risk analysts, and economists, as well as experienced regulators and policy analysts, to better define the priority setting problem and focus on the scientific and intellectual resources available to construct a risk analysis framework for improving food safety. Toward Safer Food provides a common starting point for discussions about how to construct this framework. The book includes a multi-disciplinary introduction to the existing data, research, and methodological and conceptual approaches on which a system-wide risk analysis framework must draw. It also recognizes that efforts to improve food safety will be influenced by the current institutional context, and provides an overview of the ways in which food safety law and administration affect priority setting. Hoffman and Taylor intend their book to be accessible to people from a wide variety of backgrounds. At the same time, they retain the core conceptual sophistication needed to understand the challenges that are inherent in improving food safety. The editors hope that this book will help the U.S. move beyond a call for an integrated, risk-based system toward its actual construction.

The State Of The World S Animal Genetic Resources For Food And Agriculture from the Author: Barbara Rischkowsky. Sustainable management of the world's livestock genetic diversity is of vital importance to agriculture, food production, rural development and the environment. This publication is the first global assessment of these resources. Drawing on 169 Country Reports, contributions from a number of international organizations and 12 specially commissioned thematic studies, it presents an analysis of the state of agricultural biodiversity in the livestock sector - origins and development, uses and values, distribution and exchange, risk status and threats - and of capacity to manage these resources - institutions, policies and legal frameworks, structured breeding activities and conservation programs. Needs and challenges are assessed in the context of the forces driving change in livestock production systems. Tools and methods to enhance the use and development of animal genetic resources are explored in sections on the state of the art in characterization, genetic improvement, economic evaluation and conservation. As well providing a technical reference document, the country-based preparation of "The State of the World" has led to a process of policy development and a "Global Plan of Action for Animal Genetic Resources", which once adopted, will provide an agenda for action by the international community.--Publisher's description.

Residues Of Veterinary Drugs And Mycotoxins In Animal Products from the Author: G. Enne. During the last decades, intensive animal breeding for food production has led to a substantial increase in the use of veterinary drugs for therapeutic or disease preventive reasons. This may result in an increased incidence of residues of compounds which still exert toxicological or biological activity. Moreover, the quality of animal derived foods is threatened by the formation and occurrence of mycotoxins and by the presence of environmental contaminants. Food contamination has become a world wide web issue of concern. The large number of compounds involved, sometimes simultaneously present in food products, has attracted scientific attention with respect to the development of rapid analytical and toxicological test methods in order to characterize risks for the consumer of contaminated foods. To this end, an international Teleconference was set up on the computer network Internet entitled Residues of Veterinary Drugs and Mycotoxins in Animal Products: New Methods for Risk Assessment and Quality Control. The idea behind this event was to communicate on a world wide scale via electronic mail on recent scientific progress in the area of risk assessment and quality control of food contaminants. Invited scientists from different countries have brought review papers and discussion items on actual problems on food safety assessment in the electronic system. Subscribers to the conference via the Listserv Meatqual had the opportunity to react on these papers by E-mail, while also submission of free communications was possible. This book contains the papers presented during the Conference as well as the discussion contributions related to the various themes.
