Pathology of Domestic Animals, Volume 1 elaborates on the bone structure and diseases, as well as the genital, circulatory, and respiratory systems, of domestic animals. The manuscript first offers information on bones, joints, and synovial structures and diseases of joints, including adaptational deformities of the skeleton, metabolic diseases of bones, necrosis and inflammation of bones, and discontinuities of bone and the healing of fractures. The text then ponders on the circulatory and respiratory systems. Discussions focus on congenital anomalies of the heart and large vessels, myocardium, hypertrophy and dilation of the heart, pharynx and guttural pouches, larynx and trachea, lungs, and pleura and mediastinum. The publication examines the haemopoietic system and endocrine glands. Topics include blood and bone marrow, general reactions of erythrocytes to injury, lymphoreticular tissues, adrenal glands and paraganglia, and polycythaemia. The book then reviews the male and female genital systems. The manuscript is a valuable source of data for readers interested in the pathology of domestic animals.

Pathology of Tumours in Laboratory Animals

The series Pathology of Tumours in Laboratory Animals was initiated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer 25 years ago, to provide experimental pathologists with a comprehensive, coherent source of reference information, for use in chronic toxicology research. The first edition of the volume describing tumors of the mouse was issued in 1979. Since then many papers describing new models, new methods of induction, immunohistochemical methods, or important new details of old models have been published and efforts have been made to incorporate these data wherever possible. Each chapter deals with tumors of a particular organ or system and describes all neoplasms that have been reported to occur in the organ concerned, using the terminology proposed by WHO for human tumors. The structure adopted for each chapter in the first edition (normal structure of the organ in question, classification, morphology and histology of tumors, incidence of spontaneous tumors, methods of inductions, comparative aspects, illustrations and references) is retained in the new edition. Separate chapters are included in the second edition of this volume on tumors of the nasal cavities and tumors of the salivary and lacrimal glands; in the first edition these were described in one chapter. Likewise, the chapter on tumors of hematopoietic organs is now divided into two independent chapters, one on tumors of the lymphohematopoietic tissue and the other describing histolytic sarcoma. A brief chapter on gallbladder tumors has been added.

In recent years, zoonoses and communicable diseases common to man and animals have gained increasing attention worldwide. Human diseases that have their origins in infected animals, such as AIDS or Creutzfeldt-Jakob, have highlighted the need for a better understanding of animal diseases in terms of their epidemiology, mechanism of transmission to man, diagnosis, prevention and control. Encroachment into formerly little known ecological areas has increased exposure to such diseases. Also, the speed of modern travel facilitates the spread of the diseases once confined to specific geographic areas. Animal migration and trade pose a similar threat. This new edition provides a detailed overview of the most important zoonotic diseases including: its first appearance, most important outbreaks, latest scientific knowledge, and causative agents. It includes etiology, geographic distribution, symptoms and occurrence in man and animals, source of infection, mode of transmission, role of animals in the epidemiology of the disease, diagnostic techniques and prevention and control measures; name and number according to the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD -10.). It also includes an index covering synonyms and etiologic agents' names.

Background Lesions in Laboratory Animals will be an invaluable aid to pathologists needing to recognize background and incidental lesions while examining slides taken from laboratory animals in acute and chronic toxicity studies, or while examining exotic species in a diagnostic laboratory. It gives clear descriptions and illustrations of the majority of background lesions likely to be encountered. Many of the lesions covered are unusual and can be mistaken for treatment-related findings in preclinical toxicity studies. The Atlas has been prepared with contributions from experienced toxicological pathologists who are specialists in each of the laboratory animal species covered and who have published extensively in these areas. over 600 high-definition, top-quality color photographs of background lesions found in rats, mice, dogs, minipigs, non-human primates, hamsters, guinea pigs and rabbits a separate chapter on lesions in the reproductive systems of all laboratory animals written by Dr Dianne Creasy, a world expert on testicular lesions in laboratory animals a chapter on common artifacts that may be observed in histological glass slides extensive references to each lesion described aging lesions encountered in all laboratory animal species, particularly in rats in mice which are used for carcinogenicity studies

Reproduction in Domestic Animals, Second Edition discusses the chemistry of gonadotropins and biochemistry of the gonadal hormones. The book presents the immunological characterization of the gonadotropins and the regulation of the secretion of pituitary gonadotropins by the nervous system. The text describes the physiology of reproduction and then discusses the effects of hormones on the development and differentiation of the brain. Another topic of interest is the formation of preovulatory follicles. The section that follows describes the necessity of quantitative female gametes production. The book will provide valuable insights for biologists, zoologists, students, and researchers in the field of animal reproduction.

Proteomics, like other post-genomics tools, has been growing at a rapid pace and has important applications in numerous fields of science. While its use in animal and veterinary sciences is still limited, there have been considerable advances in this field in recent years, in areas as diverse as physiology, nutrition and food of animal origin processing. This is mainly as a consequence of a wider availability and better understanding of proteomics methodologies by animal and veterinary researchers. This book provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art account of the status of farm-animal proteomics research, focusing on the principles behind proteomics methodologies and its specific applications and offering clear example.
