International Conference on the Epidemiology and Control of Biological, Chemical and Physical Hazards in Pigs and Pork
Iowa State University Conferences and Symposia

The SafePork conference series began in 1996 to bring together international researchers, industry, and government agencies to discuss current Salmonella research and identify research needs pertaining to both pig and pork production. In subsequent years topics of research presented at these conferences expanded to include other chemical and biological hazards to pig and pork production.

Abstract

To assess trends in Salmonella research in pork production, the listings in a scientific database (CAB, International) were screened for the period 1990-2000. Reported publications increased approximately three fold, from 16 in 1990 to approximately 50 per year from 1997 through 2000. The breakdown of reported research by area of focus was summarized for the period 1995 through 2001 by screening citations reported by three abstracting services (AGRICOLA, CAB International, and MEDLINE). Many important questions remain for further investigation in each area. Judged on numbers of publications, relative strengths were identified in current scientific literature for pre-harvest epidemiology and Salmonella detection, and relative weaknesses were identified in economics and public policy related to control of Salmonella in pork.
