Disease relevance of Animal Welfare


High impact information on Animal Welfare


Associations of Animal Welfare with chemical compounds

  • A rapid and simple immunochemical method was developed for the assessment of the creatine kinase (MM) isoenzyme [CK(MM)], a protein marker linked with animal welfare and meat quality [8].
  • Much attention has been given over the years to animal welfare issues surrounding the seal hunt in Atlantic Canada. However, very little information is available on this subject in the scientific literature [9].
  • Compulsory coursework explicitly addressing factual components of animal welfare science, welfare assessment, and associated animal-related policy constitute only 12 hrs throughout the four-year Doctor of Veterinary Medicine curriculum [10].
  • A summary of FIFRA-88 milestones for registration of 3-chloro-p-toluidine hydrochloride (CPTH), the active ingredient (AI) in a "low-volume, minor-use" avicide (DRC-1339, Starlicide), is used to illustrate GLP/QA/animal welfare issues involved in this process [11].

Gene context of Animal Welfare

  • Because of undefined composition, risk of contaminations, the cost factor and also animal welfare considerations concerning the production of sera, the conversion to serum free alternatives is promoted by regulatory authorities, industry and the research community in general [12].
  • This study evaluated 3 zoos in the Philippines: the Wildlife Rescue Center and Mini Zoo, Manila Zoological and Botanical Garden, and Cavite Botanical and Zoological Park to determine the standards of nonhuman animal welfare [13].
  • Animal welfare, humane animal handling, pets, transportation, and reporting and recordkeeping requirements are the subjects listed in 9 CFR, Part 3 [14].
