Metabolase - A Systems Approach to Transition Cow Therapy

Metabolase - A Systems Approach to Transition Cow Therapy

Published by mktexport

The approach that veterinary medicine has used so far for the treatment of metabolic disorders in dairy cows has been to focus the attention on each single disease. The traditional methodology, from diagnosis to treatment, has always been based on the supposition that the perturbation of one or a few biological variables, such as an hematologic or biochemical value, were responsible for a particular disease and that fixing these few perturbed variables could resolve the pathological condition. This reductionist approach is now, and has always been, the dominant methodology in all biological sciences, including veterinary medicine, and has led to many advances in understanding and treating diseases. It is based on the assumption that it is easier to understand things by taking them to pieces and studying the individual components. But although reductionism can make things more simple and intelligible, it looks only at individual isolated pieces of information and often fails to capture the complexity of a physiological or pathological state. This is particularly true in the case of metabolic
