Veterinary medicine quality is vital and must be ensured throughout the pharmaceutical chain, from design until use. Each participant in the chain has an influence on one or more parameters and needs to take precautions to guarantee and maintain veterinary medicine quality.

During the summer, especially in cases of high heat, the storage of veterinary medicinal products may be affected; beyond 40 °C, there are risks of irreversible degradation (quality, effectiveness) or even toxicity (formation of degradation products).

In partnership with ANSES, the Université Côte d'Azur is pleased to invite you to the 17th annual meeting and 11th conference of HEPA Europe. The conference is organised jointly with WHO/Europe, in partnership with the City of Nice and the French Public Health Society (SFSP). This year's HEPA Europe conference will focus on "An ecosystem-based approach to promoting health-enhancing physical activity". The conference themes cover a wide range of issues including policy, active transportation, sport, determinants of physical activity, results for health, sedentary behaviour and many others. The aim of the conference is to engage policy makers, professionals, scientists and other stakeholders, as well as citizens, in the promotion of health-enhancing physical activity. The conference will be an opportunity to target and connect these different groups. The Nice meeting is a unique opportunity to meet with experts and influencers face-to-face; to network, mix and mingle; to learn from leaders in the field and to keep abreast of scientific, practical and policy developments in Europe and beyond. The event includes plenary conferences, concurrent discussion sessions, poster sessions and symposia. It will also include the annual meeting of HEPA Europe and concurrent sessions by most of its working groups. The conference has existed since 2005 and will be held for the first time in France, at the Palais de la Méditerranée in Nice, from 31 August to 2 September 2022.

Reducing dietary exposure to nitrites and nitrates

Every day, we are exposed to nitrites and nitrates through our diet. In light of current knowledge on their effects on human health, ANSES recommends reducing the population's exposure to these substances by taking proactive measures to limit dietary exposure. To that end, ANSES has identified several courses of action, in particular reducing the use of nitrites as additives in delicatessen meat, noting that this should be achieved in a controlled manner in order to avoid any increase in foodborne infections.

A new test to better detect pathogenic E. coli in food

Escherichia coli (E. coli ) is a bacterium found in the digestive tract of humans, other mammals and birds. Although the majority of E. coli strains are harmless, some of them can cause serious cases of diarrhoea and even, less often, death. ANSES has developed a faster and more targeted method for detecting pathogenic E. coli in food, in particular in raw milk products.
