Introduction to Veterinary Epidemiology provides the basics of veterinary epidemiology to the undergraduate and graduate students. The outline of the book follows the necessary steps involved in planning, conducting and analyzing an epidemiological study. These steps include establishing the objective and hypothesis, defining risk factors and outcome, selecting an appropriate study design, determining relevant measures of disease frequency, association and effect, sample size considerations, conducting the study, managing the data in databases and finally analyzing the data. The process takes off in the concepts and theories that form the basis of veterinary epidemiology and includes a solid introduction to data with respect to nature, management and analysis. The examples used to illustrate the different elements of data analysis are given in appendices as SAS code and R code to help getting started on the data analysis. This book is a collaboration between authors with solid backgrounds within veterinary, mathematical, statistical and computer sciences. They have years of experience in teaching at the undergraduate as well as graduate and postgraduate level. Each chapter has been reviewed by leading international veterinary epidemiologists. The programs and data sets can be downloaded from www.itve.dk

Epizootiology, epizoology, or veterinary epidemiology is the study of disease patterns within animal populations. Veterinary epidemiology deals with the investigation of diseases, productivity and animal welfare in populations. It is used to describe the frequency of disease occurrence and how disease, productivity and welfare are affected by the interaction of different factors or determinants. Today, the veterinary profession is confronted with a different set of problems compared with the middle of last century. Now, veterinarians often have to deal with herds or regions remaining diseased after lengthy disease control campaigns. In addition, it is considered necessary to take into account the economic aspects of disease control through the use of benefit/cost analyses of disease control campaigns. Costly multi-factorial disease complexes such as mastitis or cattle lameness have become quite common. In addition, old, emerging or new diseases with complex aetiologies pose a difficult challenge for the profession. Veterinarians have to respond to the challenges posed by problems such as BSE, FMD and antimicrobial resistance. All these problems require identification, quantification and intensive examination of multiple, directly or indirectly causal, and often interacting, disease determinants. Veterinary epidemiology and evidence-based veterinary medicine provide overlapping sets of tools which can be used to approach these new challenges.

Naturgeschichte der Infektionskrankheiten des Menschen

Author: Frank Macfarlane Burnet

Publisher: S. Fischer Verlag

ISBN: 3105614095

Category: Reference

Page: 396

Der Nobelpreisträger Frank Macfarlane Burnet schildert die Infektionskrankheiten als ein Schlüsselthema der Conditio humana. Er zeigt, wie sich in dem die Erkrankung auslösenden Kampf zwischen Erreger und Opferorganismus Grundprozesse des Lebens, Wachstum und Tod, enthüllen. Das Buch gibt Einblick in den chemischen Bauplan der Erreger, schildert anschaulich die Angriffs- und Abwehrstrategien, die komplizierten ökologischen Beziehungen des Menschen zu den Organismen seiner Umwelt. Indem es die schrittweise Eindämmung großer Seuchen, die jahrtausendelang die Menschheit dezimiert haben, nacherzählt, aber auch die Negativfolgen dieses Fortschritts – die Gefahr der Übervölkerung und die Entwicklung biologischer Massenvernichtungsmittel – eindringlich beim Namen nennt, ist das Buch gleichzeitig ein fesselndes Stück Evolutions-, Wissenschafts- und Kulturgeschichte.
