The RISKSUR EVA Tool (Survtool): a tool for the integrated evaluation of animal health surveillance systems

Publication date: Available online 18 September 2019Source: Preventive Veterinary MedicineAuthor(s): Marisa Peyre, Linda Hoinville, James Njoroge, Angus Cameron, Daniel Traon, Flavie Goutard, Clémentine Calba, Vladimir Grosbois, Alexis Delabouglise, Viktor Varant, Julian Drewe, Dirk Pfeiffer, Barbara HäslerAbstractInformation about infectious diseases at the global level relies on effective, efficient and sustainable national and international surveillance systems. Surveillance systems need to be regularly evaluated to ensure their effectiveness, the quality of the data and information provided, as well as to be able to allocate resources efficiently. Currently available frameworks for evaluation of surveillance systems in animal or human health often treat technical, process and socio-economic aspects separately instead of integrating them. The surveillance evaluation (EVA) tool, a support tool for the evaluation of animal health surveillance systems, was developed to provide guidance for integrated evaluation of animal health surveillance including economic evaluation. The tool was developed by international experts in surveillance and evaluation in an iterative process of development, testing and revision; taking into account existing frameworks and guidance, scientific literature and expert opinion elicitation. The EVA tool encompasses a web interface for users to develop an evaluation plan, a Wiki classroom to provide theoretical information on all required c...

In this study, we present a new method for the simultaneous detection of CXCR4, mesodermal markers and NCCs markers during chicken embryo developmental stages HH18 –HH25 by combining double whole-mount in situ hybridization (ISH) and immunostaining on floating vibratome sections. The simultaneous detection of CXCR4 and markers for the mesodermal and neural crest cells in multiple labelling allowed us to compare complex gene expression patterns and it could b e easily used for a wide range of gene expression pattern analyses of other chicken embryonic tissues. All steps of the procedure, including the preparation of p...

In this study, a series of unsymmetrical N,N-disubstituted benzimidazolium salts were synthesized as N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) (2a-2j) and their AgI complexes. Their structures were characterized by elemental analyses, 1H and 13C nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and infrared (IR) spectroscopy techniques. Further, both the salts and their silver(I)-NHC complexes have been evaluated for their potential antibacterial properties against a panel of bacterial strains namely, Micrococcus luteus, Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella Typhimurium, Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The results show that silver comple...

The objective of this work was to carry out a bibliographic survey of secondary metabolites isolated from the Velloziaceae family, creating a bank of compounds. After the bank was created, four prediction models for potentially active compounds against pathogenic microorganisms (Candida albicans, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Salmonella sp.) were obtained trying to identify which metabolites would be more active against the strains. Four sets of compounds with known activity for microorganisms were selected for the construction of predictive models from the CHEMBL database. Another bank with 163 unique molec...
