PLOS 26/05/17 Identification of foot and mouth disease risk areas using a multi-criteria analysis approach. Abstract Foot and mouth disease (FMD) is a highly infectious disease that affects cloven-hoofed livestock and wildlife.
FMD has been a problem for decades, which has led to various measures to control, eradicate and prevent FMD by National Veterinary Services worldwide. Currently, the identification of areas that are at risk of FMD virus incursion and spread is a priority for FMD target surveillance after FMD is eradicated from a given country or region. In our study, a knowledge-driven spatial model was built to identify risk areas for FMD occurrence and to evaluate FMD surveillance performance in Rio Grande do Sul state, Brazil. For this purpose, multi-criteria decision analysis was used as a tool to seek multiple and conflicting criteria to determine a preferred course of action.

Introduction Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is a highly contagious disease, which is known to spread easily within and between herds and cause severe economic losses in each herd as well as in the country (1).
The control and eradication of FMD within the EU is governed by EU legislation (Council Directive 2003/85/EC of 29 September 2003; Following the directive, EU member states are obliged to use a stamping out policy, involving quarantine, movement restrictions, zoning, and slaughter and disposal of all affected herds, followed by cleaning and disinfection (CD) of the farm.

Abstract Foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV), Bluetongue virus (BTV), Vesicular stomatitis Virus (VSV), Bovine viral diarrheal (BVDV), Bovine rotavirus (BRV), and Bovine herpesvirus 1 (IBRV) are common cattle infectious viruses that cause a great economic loss every year in many parts of the world.
A rapid and high-throughput GenomeLab Gene Expression Profiler (GeXP) analyzer-based multiplex PCR assay was developed for the simultaneous detection and differentiation of these six cattle viruses. Six pairs of chimeric primers consisting of both the gene-specific primer and a universal primer were designed and used for amplification. Then capillary electrophoresis was used to separate the fluorescent labeled PCR products according to the amplicons size. The specificity of GeXP-multiplex PCR assay was examined with samples of the single template and mixed template of six viruses. Editor: Kok Keng Tee, University of Malaya, MALAYSIA.

Abstract Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is a highly contagious and economically important viral disease of cloven-hoofed animals, including domestic and wild host species.
During recent FMD outbreaks in India, spontaneous abortions were reported amongst FMD-affected and asymptomatic cows. The current study was an opportunistic investigation of these naturally occurring bovine abortions to assess causality of abortion and vertical transmission of FMDV from infected cows to fetuses. For this purpose, fetal tissue samples of eight abortuses (heart, liver, kidney, spleen, palatine tonsil, umbilical cord, soft palate, tongue, lungs, and submandibular lymph node) were collected and screened by various detection methods, including viral genome detection, virus isolation, and immunomicroscopy. Amongst these cases, gross pathological changes were observed in 3 abortuses. Editor: Zheng Xing, University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine, UNITED STATES Introduction.

Introduction Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is a highly contagious and economically devastating disease that affects cloven-hoofed animal species.
The infectious agent, foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV; genus Apththovirus, family Picornaviridae), is infectious at low doses and capable of rapid dissemination within susceptible animal populations (1). Clinical FMD is characterized by fever, lameness, and ptyalism concurrent with the occurrence of vesicular lesions in the oral cavity and on the feet. However, the clinical manifestations of FMD may vary greatly depending both on biological properties of the different virus strains and on the host species affected (2–4). Although FMD-associated mortality rates among adult animals are generally low, the intensive countermeasures enacted to combat disease outbreaks in FMD-free countries often result in depopulation and destruction of large numbers of infected and susceptible animals (5–7).

However, the magnitude of these risks are poorly understood. THE PIRBRIGHT INSTITUTE 24/08/16 Scientists develop inexpensive diagnostic test for foot-and-mouth disease. Scientists at The Pirbright Institute, led by Gareth Shimmon, have found a new way of diagnosing foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) which is more cost effective and relies less on the use of small animals. FMD is a highly contagious viral disease that infects cloven-hoofed (two-toed) mammals such as cattle, sheep, goats, pigs and various wildlife species. The disease occurs in parts of Africa, the Middle East, Asia and parts of South America and causes huge economic losses annually. PLOS 22/07/16 Tracking the Antigenic Evolution of Foot-and-Mouth Disease Virus. Abstract Quantifying and predicting the antigenic characteristics of a virus is something of a holy grail for infectious disease research because of its central importance to the emergence of new strains, the severity of outbreaks, and vaccine selection.
However, these characteristics are defined by a complex interplay of viral and host factors so that phylogenetic measures of viral similarity are often poorly correlated to antigenic relationships. FRONTIERS IN VETERINARY SCIENCE 23/05/16 The Pathogenesis of Foot-and-Mouth Disease in Pigs. Relevance Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is recognized as one of the most contagious and economically important diseases of domestic livestock. The etiological agent, FMD virus (FMDV), an aphthovirus of the Picornaviridae family, is capable of infecting a multitude of cloven-hoofed animal species including both ruminants and suids (1, 2). Although domestic cattle are often prioritized with regards to FMD prevention and strategic countermeasures, it is important to recognize that pigs constitute a substantial proportion of agricultural production in large areas of the world. Even though cattle and pigs may be similarly susceptible to FMDV infection under most circumstances, there are critical differences in FMD pathogenesis and infection dynamics that emphasize the importance of species-specific experimental investigations and adaptation of countermeasure policies.
A large proportion of experimental studies investigating FMDV pathogenesis and vaccinology have been performed in cattle. 1.

During this outbreak on a large-scale dairy farm in Kenya, 400/644 (62.1%) of cattle were reported to be affected with FMD due to serotype SAT2. The outbreak lasted for 29 days with the index case identified on 31st August 2012 and the last case on the 28th September 2012. In the 12-month follow up period commencing on the day the index case was identified, 76 were culled or died. For cattle aged 18 months or greater at the start of the outbreak, 63 developed clinical mastitis. Although in the univariable analysis FMD cases tended to be culled sooner than non-cases after the outbreak onset, after adjustment for possible confounders there was weak evidence to support this observation.
In contrast, for clinical mastitis, univariable analysis showed no effect of FMD on rate of mastitis but after adjusting for the time varying effect of being a case there was good evidence of an increased rate in the first month after the onset of the outbreak. The study was on a large-scale dairy farm. APHIS USDA - JANV 2014 - Risk of Importing Foot-and-Mouth Disease in Susceptible Species and Products from a region of Patagonia, Argentina.

Abstract Anthrax, foot and mouth disease (FMD), haemorrhagic septicaemia (HS), peste des petits ruminants (PPR) and rabies are considered to be endemic in Bangladesh. This retrospective study was conducted to understand the geographic and seasonal distribution of these major infectious diseases in livestock based on data collected through passive surveillance from 1 January 2010 to 31 December 2012. Data analysis for this period revealed 5,937 cases of anthrax, 300,333 of FMD, 13,436 of HS, 247,783 of PPR and 14,085 cases of dog bite/rabies. While diseases were reported in almost every district of the country, the highest frequency of occurrence corresponded to the susceptible livestock population in the respective districts.
There was no significant difference in the disease occurrences between districts bordering India/Myanmar and non-border districts (p>0.05). Editor: Jagat K. Received: October 25, 2013; Accepted: July 14, 2014; Published: August 7, 2014 Introduction Methods Figure 1.
