1984 was a big year. For a start, it was the year in which World Congress became an annual event.  It was also the year in which our members became small animal veterinary associations or specialist associations rather than representatives of national veterinary organizations. In fact, it’s the year in which we started to look like the global community we have become today. We’ve come a long way since!

WSAVA One Health Committee to bring together industry, human, and veterinary experts with an interest in cancer.

The WSAVA One Health Committee is holding a pre-Congress day on Monday July 15 to gather input for a White Paper it plans to introduce on bringing cancer drugs to market more quickly.

The meeting will offer an opportunity for speakers to share anecdotes and experiences in the field of Comparative Oncology and to identify ‘gaps’ that should be addressed.  Delegates will then be invited to participate in the creation of a summary of the gaps and suggested next steps.

If a member of your team is interested in attending, please contact WSAVA One Health Committee Chair  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  for more information.

Bringing Cats And Their Allergic Owners Closer: A Feline-Friendly Breakthrough In Cat Allergen Reduction
 

Allergies to cats are the most common animal-origin allergies in humans, 1 and affect approximately 1 in 5 adults worldwide. 2
 

Allergies can impair quality of life for allergy sufferers by interfering with daily activities and performance.3,4 They also limit the interactions between the allergic person and their cat, and allergy to cats is a commonly provided reason for relinquishment to shelters5-9 as well as a barrier to cat adoption and ownership.9-10  Avoiding exposure to the allergen is the foundation for allergists’ recommendations to remove the cat from the home.4,17,18 Stringent environmental controls (such as excluding the cat from the bedroom; removing carpeting; and regular, thorough cleaning) can successfully reduce allergen levels, possibly allowing the cat to remain in the home,4,18,21 but these measures are effort-intensive and may be difficult to maintain long-term.
 

For the first time in history, Purina scientists have demonstrated a proactive way to significantly reduce the active levels of the major allergen, Fel d1, by taking advantage of the antibody-allergen interaction to neutralize Fel d1 after its production by the cat, but before it is spread into the environment.
