Special Issue "Pathology and Veterinary Diagnostics of Farming Animals"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 February 2024 | Viewed by 1168
In recent years, the prevalence of pathogenic bacteria has constrained the economic development of the livestock industry, but the treatment of pathogenic bacteria is still dominated by antibiotics, which has led to the emergence of drug-resistant strains. The extensive utilization of antibiotics has accelerated the spread of drug-resistant strains, so the severity of diseases caused by pathogenic bacteria is assessed according to the origin, transmission route, and clinical manifestations of the pathogenic bacteria. However, some pathogenic bacteria can cause zoonotic diseases, and the early detection of pathogenic infections can help to cut off transmission routes and may prevent epidemics of certain pathogens from spreading between humans and domestic animals. The purpose of this Special Issue is to explore the impact of pathogenic bacteria on livestock with respect to the study of pathology and the development of rapid diagnosis techniques. We welcome the submission of original research articles or reviews addressing pathogenic bacteria in farming animals. We will also welcome investigations on the clinical signs of and pathologic changes caused by pathogenic bacteria, therapeutic measures, and on drug-resistant strains. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, mechanisms of resistance, pathogenesis, and potential preventive measures that will help establish disease prevention and control.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Agriculture is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
