The European Food Safety Agency (EFSA)(EFSA) has published on April 29, 2014 the report prepared by EpiX Analytics, The Royal Veterinary College and Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona on Canine leishmaniosis (CanL) in the European Union: http://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/efsajournal/doc/466e.pdf.http://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/efsajournal/doc/466e.pdf.  “CanL is a disease transmitted by sand flies which can potentially cause severe fatal disease in humans and dogs”, says Dr. Solenne Costard, co-author of the report. “Our work helped investigate and understand the efficacy of different control measures”. Within the project, EpiX developed a stochastic simulation model that was used to assess the role of movements of dogs in spreadingLeishmania infantum (which causes CanL) in the European Union
