In this context and on the occasion of the European Food Safety Authority's (EFSA) publication of its report on antimicrobial resistance in zoonotic bacteria, AFSSA is emphasising the importance of this issue and reiterating its corresponding actions. A new study has just been published on the potential effect of an insecticide ingredient, thiamethoxam, on bee colony health via its influence on the behaviour of forager bees. ANSES, in keeping with its mission of continuous surveillance, and at the request of the French Ministry of Agriculture, will immediately analyse this new study as well as any other new studies available, in preparation for issuing possible recommendations to the French authorities. ANSES will work in conjunction with its European counterparts, if necessary, in order to incorporate the information gathered from this analysis into the process of evaluation used for substances of this type. A valuable tool for exchanging information between stakeholders involved in epidemiological surveillance, food safety, and animal and human health in France, the Bulletin Epidémiologique 'Santé animale - alimentation' ("Epidemiological Bulletin - Animal Health and Food", available in French only, with summaries and key words translated into English) is changing to meet the needs of its readers. To mark the release of a special issue on zoonoses, we invite you to take a closer look at the restyled Bulletin Epidémiologique. A/H1N1 Influenza: a confirmed turkey farm outbreak - a review of AFSSA's role and the importance of biosafety in farming AFSSA has now presented professionals with its report on the 2008 and 2009 vaccination campaigns, during which some 123 million doses of vaccine were administered, together with the outlook for the 2010 campaign. A detailed analysis of declarations of adverse effects compiled since this campaign began, by the pharmacovigilance system set up by AFSSA and run by the French Agency for Veterinary Medicinal Products, has concluded that there are no grounds for calling into question the risk/benefit status of the vaccines. AFSSA is organising a seminar today on animal influenzas at the Ploufragan science park (zoopôle). The event revolved around a review of the current state of knowledge regarding these viruses and the issues raised by the recent A H1N1 flu pandemic as well as the H5N1 bird influenza epizootic which began in spring 2005. Animal health and nutrition Animal health and nutrition news Animal influenzas: A seminar to present and review results ANSES is a major player in animal health and welfare. It will be at the International Livestock Trade Faire (SPACE) in Rennes, France from 13 through 16 September 2011. ANSES is granted a new reference laboratory mandate by the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) ANSES proposes a tool for animal disease prioritisation ANSES publishes for the first time a detailed report of the adverse effects of veterinary medicinal products (2011 drug monitoring report) ANSES wishes to remind the public that no anti-parasite, insecticide or acaricide product used to treat pets should ever be administered to humans, and especially not to children. ANSES withdraws marketing authorisation for certain antiparasitic collars for pets ANSES's Laboratory for Rabies and Wildlife celebrates 40 years of commitment to human and animal health Antibiotics resistance Antimicrobial resistance and pet owners Antimicrobial resistance in animal health: more and more bacteria resistant to newer-generation fluoroquinolones and cephalosporins Antimicrobial resistance is a major globally-acknowledged issue for human and animal health, with the emergence and the growing spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Since 2009, ANSES has convened stakeholders interested in this topic in the area of animal health for European Antibiotic Awareness Day. This event, which is now closely linked to a research and risk assessment context, was held today. It was an opportunity to present the yearly report on the work by the Agency and its partners in the field of antimicrobial resistance. Although the effects of improvements made over the last few years have begun to bear fruit, especially in terms of animal exposure to antibiotics, the efforts currently under way must continue. Antimicrobial resistance: a day to take stock Antimicrobial resistance: AFSSA emphasises the importance of rallying French and European stakeholders behind the responsible use of antibiotics in veterinary medicine April 1 2011 As part of the European Antibiotic Awareness Day, ANSES organised its own day on Antimicrobial Resistance in Animals in cooperation with the Directorate General for Food and the Directorate General for Health and Consumer Affairs (DG Sanco) of the European commission. As part of the revision of the regulations on transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs), the European Commission is proposing a relaxation of the rules banning processed animal proteins (PAPs) in the feed of certain productive livestock. Following a request by the French Ministries of Agriculture, Health and Consumer Affairs, the Agency has today published an Opinion concluding that the conditions for safe use of processed animal proteins have not, to date, been fully satisfied, although it notes the progress made in organisation of the industries. At the May 2012 General Session of the World Organisation for Animal Health, ANSES's Maisons-Alfort Laboratory for Animal Health was entrusted with a new reference mandate, for epizootic haemorrhagic disease. The session was also an opportunity to officially establish the transfer of the paratuberculosis mandate from the Maisons-Alfort laboratory for Animal Health to the Niort Laboratory.

This decision will lead to batches of the corresponding products being immediately withdrawn from sale from wholesalers and retail outlets. Following the discovery of wild animal carcasses in the Gouessant estuary, the Ministry of Agriculture requested that ANSES determine the causes of their death. In view of all the available data, the hypothesis of poisoning by hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is the most probable, although it is impossible to confirm whether this was the only factor contributing to this case of mass mortality.

The Agency is involved in preventing and combating prevailing and emerging animal diseases that are transmissible to humans, either directly or through food, that are specific to animals and affect both livestock and wildlife. Through its efforts to improve animal health, the Agency also contributes to protecting public health, as a good number of infectious human diseases have their origin in animal disease.
