About this book

Language: French

Histoire de la Surveillance et du Controle des Maladies Animales Transmissibles outlines the history of the surveillance and control of the major animal transmissible diseases (sheep pox, foot and mouth disease, anthrax, glanders, contagious bovine pleuropneumonia, rinderpest, rabies, tuberculosis, and ecto- and endoparasitic diseases), as well as wildlife diseases. A chapter is devoted to each of these subjects. It deals successively with symptomatology (clinical description, incubation, laboratory diagnosis), lesions, aetiology, pathogenesis, epidemiology (contagiosity, means of contagion, susceptible species, virulent matter), sanitary control (general hygiene, isolation, slaughter, destruction of virulent matter), medical control, treatment and health regulation. Advances in knowledge and theories concerning each of the above points are studied from Antiquity through to the 19th Century, with detailed bibliographic references. Histoire de la Surveillance et du Controle des Maladies Animales Transmissibles also contains a chronology of the main works and authors cited, as well as notes on the diseases studied.

Summary in French:
Cet ouvrage retrace l’histoire de la surveillance et du contrôle des principales affections animales transmissibles (clavelée, fièvre aphteuse, fièvre charbonneuse, morve, péripneumonie contagieuse bovine, peste bovine, rage, tuberculose, ectoparasitoses et endoparasitoses) ainsi que des maladies des espèces sauvages. Un chapitre entier est consacré à chacun de ces sujets. Il traite de la symptomatologie (description clinique, incubation, diagnostic expérimental), des lésions, de l’étiologie, de la pathogénie, de l’épidémiologie (contagiosité, modes de contagion, espèces sensibles, matières virulentes), de la prophylaxie sanitaire (hygiène générale, isolement, abattage, destruction des matières virulentes), de la prophylaxie médicale, du traitement et de la réglementation sanitaire. L’évolution des connaissances et des théories concernant chacun de ces points est étudiée depuis l’Antiquité jusqu’au xixe siècle, avec des références bibliographiques détaillées. Un chapitre de rappels chronologiques sur les principaux ouvrages ou auteurs cités, ainsi que des rappels sur les maladies étudiées sont également donnés.
