GI Disease State-of-the-Art Lecture at Convention

James N. Moore, DVM, PhD, one of the world's foremost authorities on equine gastrointestinal disease, will present the Frank J. Milne State-of-the-Art Lecture at the American Association of Equine Practitioners' (AAEP) 47th Annual Convention in San Diego, Calif., Nov. 25-28. Moore's lecture, "A New Look at Intestinal Displacements and Endotoxemia in Horses," will feature a series of three-dimensional, computer-generated images of the equine gastrointestinal tract under normal and abnormal conditions. He also will emulate what can be palpated during a rectal examination of the horse. Moore will focus on endotoxemia, reviewing recent findings from gastrointestinal studies performed around the world.

Moore is the head of large animal veterinary medicine at the University of Georgia, and he has a joint appointment as a professor in that department and the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology. In 1999, he received the World Veterinary Association Research Award. In addition to the many articles and numerous chapters in veterinary books he has published, Moore co-edited the following books: Equine Medicine and Surgery (Fourth and Fifth Editions); Current Practice of Equine Surgery and Lameness; and Current Practice of Equine Surgery.

The Frank J. Milne Lecture debuted in 1997 and has been sponsored each year by Pfizer Animal Health. Named for AAEP past president and distinguished life member Frank J. Milne, the lecture series focuses on subjects and techniques considered "state of the art" by the equine veterinary industry.
