EUFMD Standing Technical Committee meeting
The Research Group of the Standing Technical Committee of the European Commission for the Control of Foot-and-Mouth Disease (EUFMD) met in Closed and Open Sessions on 14-17 October 2008 in Erice, Italy. The meeting report as well as papers and posters from the Open Session, covering issues such as novel vaccine delivery approaches and development of new diagnostic test systems, are now available on the web. Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is a highly contagious viral disease of cloven-hoofed animals and the EUFMD is a regional body, established under the auspices of FAO in 1954, specialised in supporting member countries (currently 35) in the European region to prevent FMD.
