More than 400
veterinary surgeons – scientists and practitioners from 36 countries
of the entire world met at the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn
(Poland). They were: candidates for the exam of clinical pathology
(12–14 September 2004), delegates of the Pathology Symposium (13–15
September 2004), Continuing Education Day (15 September 2004), the 22nd
Congress of the European Society of Veterinary Pathology (15–18
September 2004) and 6th Congress of the European Society of Veterinary
Clinical Pathology (15–18 September 2004) - http://www.esvcp.com/
. The honorary patron of the Meetings was the President of the Republic of
Poland - Aleksander
Kwaśniewski and UE Commissioner - prof. dr hab. Danuta Hübner. The
Rector of the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn - prof. Dr. hab.
Ryszard Górecki was the Head of the Supporting Committee. The president

and the Secretary was vet. surg. Joanna Lipińska.
organised as a part of the activities of CL Davis Foundation by
prof. Dr. A Williams from the Royal Veterinary College in UK with the
cooperation of the Organising Committee from Olsztyn. Ten workshop
lectures were presented concerning present problems in veterinary medicine.
They were given by the outstanding specialists like prof.: M. Suter (Switzerland),
D. Taylor (UK), H.L. Shivaprasad (USA), R. Feinstein (Sweden). They
touched on the topics of pathology of skin diseases, alimentary tract in
pigs, birds and laboratory animals. Polish lecturers were represented by
– prof. Dr. hab. A.K. Siwicki (“Comparative immunopathology – actual
aspects”) and Dr. K. Bardadin M.D, Ph.D. (Stem cells and their role in regenerative processes of the liver).
Continuing Education Day was
the day of clinical pathology – science concerning examination of the
live organs and tissues with the use of biopsy and organism liquids
analysis. There were 7 lectures concerning among others: diagnosis of
parasites in the blood cells (prof. H. Brun-Hansen – Norway, prof. S.
Harrus - Israel), thrombocytes analysis (Dr. J. Pastor - Spain), internal
organs cytology (Dr. A. Lanevschi-Pietersma - Netherlands) and
cytopathology (prof. M. Christopher - USA).
Congress of the European Society of Veterinary Pathology (ESVP) and 6th
Congress of the European Society of Veterinary Clinical Pathology (ESVCP) presented
a modern view on the widely understood veterinary pathology, which still
plays an important role in veterinary sciences. They showed real care about the live organism: great number of studies
on immunopathology, session on pathologically engineered animals (prepared
and conducted by prof. Achim Gruber – Germany), workshops on
reproductive tract pathology conducted by prof. Donald Schlafer from
Cornell University - USA) and selected cases of the clinical pathology (conducted
- prof. Joy Archer, UK). They also underlined the necessity of cooperation
between pathomorphologists and clinical pathologists. This form of
activity was enriched (for the first time) by the participation of the
scientists working on regular morphology (anatomy and histology).
Results of the
1000 scientists presented their
studies during 26 lectures, there were also 51 oral presentations, 183
poster presentations, 41 reviewed original articles,two workshops
presenting a great number of cases. The abstracts of the presentations and
lectures were edited in the book “Pathology in Nowadays” by J. Babińska,
J. Szarek and J. Lipińska. Original articles were printed in the Polish
Journal of Veterinary Sciences (2004, supplement vol. 7, nr 3). There is
also CD-room with all Congresses and Meetings materials (available
through the authors).
