KEY DOCUMENTS - OIE ISA Testing Manual, Cohen Commission Hearings, Dec 15, 16, 19, 2011 - Updated Dec 30, 2011

This is the OIE ISA Testing Manual:

This manual walks you through all the tests that are used to indicate and then prove the presence of ISA virus. For those without a biological sciences background, the jargon will be tough sledding. The most important table is: Table 5.1 - Methods for targeted surveillance and diagnosis of ISA. Go here first.

The definition of a suspect case, for practical purposes of reporting the disease is Section 7.1.: Definition of suspect case. The definition of a confirmed case, is provided in Section 7.2.: Definition of confirmed case. Go here second.

There are several key, referenced scientific papers that support the OIE ISA Testing Manual: 1, 14 and 26 for starters.

Read the OIE Manual in conjunction with this previous post on ISA testing:
