About this book

This book contains comprehensive and updated information on how to perform Avian Influenza and Newcastle Disease diagnosis from the suspicion in the field to the characterisation of isolates. It provides guidelines to outbreak management, field investigation, necropsy techniques, sampling methods and complete laboratory diagnosis, including molecular methods. The outstanding images collected from field outbreaks, including clinical and pathological findings, and the selection of laboratory protocols make this publication unique. It will therefore be an invaluable tool for all veterinarians, scientists, animal health professionals, and public health officials involved in the management of these infections.

                          

About the authors

Ilaria Capua is "Revolutionary Mind" for 2008.

This acknowledgement was granted by "Seed Magazine". The American magazine of science and technology each year selects 5 leaders in the international scientific community who have most influenced our opinions on the world, the mind and the universe.
In 2006 virologist Ilaria Capua was studying samples of avian influenza from Africa. The World Health Organization asked Capua to deposit the genetic sequence of one of her samples into a database to which only a select few laboratories had access. She balked. "I said, 'Wait a minute, we're talking about a serious potential threat to human health. We know very little about how this virus is moving. Not enough scientists have had the opportunity to look at this virus.'" So Capua opted to put the sequence in GenBank, an open-access database, where it was downloaded 1,000 times in a single week. Capua's small act of rebellion was just the spark for a much larger challenge to the system. She started speaking out at meetings, urging her colleagues to stop putting their bird flu data in private databases. She joined forces with Peter Bogner, a strategic consultant, and a number of other virologists to establish the Global Initiative on Sharing Avian Influenza Data (GISAID), a consortium that facilitates collaboration among researchers and requires members to make their work on the virus publicly accessible. Capua hopes the work she's done to open up bird flu research can serve as an example to scientists studying other infectious diseases. Jean-Claude Bradley, a chemist at Drexel University who coined the phrase "open-notebook science," agrees. "That's where open science can really have an effect," Bradley says, "in research on disease processes. We could really use more people who are doing what Capua's doing. I think it makes for better science."
