This book presents the conclusions of an expert committee commissioned to evaluate the safety of residues of selected veterinary drugs used in food-producing animals, to establish acceptable daily intakes for humans and to recommend maximum residue limits.

The report opens with a brief discussion of methodological problems in assessing the neurotoxicity of avermectins and milbemycins, followed by a list of policy topics to be addressed at future meetings. The main part of the report provides succinct summaries of the toxicological and residue data considered when evaluating substances under review, identifying any potential hazards to consumer health, and allocating an acceptable daily intake and maximum residue limits.

Veterinary drugs considered include five anthelminthic agents, seven antimicrobial agents, the antiprotozoal agents, one glucocorticosteroid, one production aid and one tranquillising agent. The report concludes with a summary of recommendations for the substances under review and further toxicological studies and other information required.

Chapter titles: Introduction; General Considerations; Comments on Residues of Specific Veterinary Drugs; Recommendations; Annex 1: Reports and Other Documents Resulting From Previous Meetings of the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives; Annex 2: Recommendations on Compounds on the Agenda and Further Toxicological Studies and Other Information Required.
