    • Animal Biotechnologies: Potential Impact on Animal Products and Their Production 

      First, Neal L. (NABC, 1992)
      Every biotechnology is different. Each gene construct is different and must be examined for its individual benefits and risks. Some biotechnologies reduce the need for animals in research or reduce the numbers needed for ...
    • Animal Biotechnology: Opportunities & Challenges 

      Unknown author (NABC, 1992)
      Animal well-being, the safety of animal food products and regulatory issues are addressed in this report along with the examination of links between animal biotechnology and new opportunities in human and animal medicine.
    • Animal Pharmaceuticals 

      Terry, Martin (NABC, 1992)
      The regulatory agencies consider oversight as appropriately applied in direct proportion to the risk associated with a given product per se, independent of the technology employed in the manufacturing process. FDA cannot ...
    • Animal well-being and biotechnology 

      Meeker, David (NABC, 1992)
      Animal agriculture contributes to the quality of human life by providing high-quality, nutrient-dense foods. Farmers have a moral obligation to produce this food as efficiently as possible. This will provide the maximum ...
    • Food safety perspectives on animal biotechnology 

      Cross, H. Russell (NABC, 1992)
      Biotechnology offers many opportunities to improve agriculture and will have its greatest impact on meat and poultry safety in two ways by providing us with diagnostic tests to effectively detect contamination during food ...
    • Living inventions: biotechnology and the public 

      Nelkin, Dorothy (NABC, 1992)
      The history of participatory procedures suggests this may not produce consensus; when technologies embody highly controversial political and social values, consensus is not a feasible goal. Controversial issues must be ...
    • NABC 4: Opportunities and challenges 

      Baumgardt, Bill R. (NABC, 1992)
      Call to communicate openly and fully with all stakeholders in agricultural biotechnology.
    • Overview 

      Thompson, Paul B.; Shadduck, John A. (NABC, 1992)
      Meeting overview
    • Public policy and animal biotechnology in the 1990s: challenges and opportunities 

      Stenholm, Charles W.; Waggoner, Daniel B. (NABC, 1992)
      World agriculture stands at the threshold of new scientific and technical developments in animal science, biology, chemistry, genetics, agricultural engineering, information technology and many other fields. Emerging ...
    • Reproductive biology of domestic animals: linkages with veterinary and human medicine 

      Bazer, Fuller W. (NABC, 1992)
      Results of research in animal agriculture have affected certain aspects of clinical medicine. The application of biotechnology to human and veterinary medicine involves many techniques used in reproductive biology and ...
    • The creation of transgenic animal “models” for human genetic disease 

      Rollin, Bernard E. (NABC, 1992)
      Transgenic animals will be created to study human genetic disease as soon as the technological capability exists to do so. Extant laws permit such animals to be created. The mindset of the research community makes it ...
    • The food safety of transgenic animals 

      Berkowitz, David (NABC, 1992)
      Introducing food products into the market place requires that the safety aspect be fully analyzed and documented so that healthy transgenic animals will be at least as safe as the traditional animals from which they were ...
    • The new creation: An update on animal gene engineering 

      Fox, Michael W. (NABC, 1992)
      There are ethical and religious, legal and political, social and economic, environmental and cultural dimensions to animal biotechnology. When these are ignored, the gap between private/corporate and public interests widens. ...
    • The potential spinoff of advances in human medicine to animal research and agriculture 

      Baile, Clifton A. (NABC, 1992)
      Advances in biotechnology and animal science will assure the world new methods of increasing the abundance, quality and variety of foods. These future products will be cheaper and safer to produce and will lead to superior, ...
    • The regulation of genetically engineered animals: going from bad to worse 

      Mellon, Margaret (NABC, 1992)
      As of this NABC meeting (May, 1992), the regulation of genetically engi-neered animals is hopelessly inadequate, with little hope for improvement. As long as the Council on Competitiveness sets policy, existing statutes ...
    • To live as natives, free of fear: What citizens should require from animal biotechnology 

      Hunter, Dianna (NABC, 1992)
      Informed citizens have good reasons to be wary of promises made for new technologies since it is a challenge to find avenues of communication between them and the proponents of animal biotechnologies. Citizens have learned ...
    • USDA Regulation of animal biotechnology 

      Frydenlund, John E. (NABC, 1992)
      USDA agencies, including FSIS and APHIS, work closely with consumer-interest groups to inform the public about oversight policies and programs for biotechnology products and to discuss any safety concerns associated with ...
    • Workshop highlights and recommendations 

      MacDOnald, June F. (NABC, 1992)
      Workshops covered animal well-being, links of animal biotechnology to human health, meat and animal product safety and regulatory issues. Participants were asked to define and prioritize national issues, reach consensus ...
