News Article

Cameroon is often called ‘Africa in miniature’ due to its geographical and cultural diversity. It now can also claim the highest M. bovis genetic diversity on the continent so far reported.

Abstract

The measurement of bovine interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) forms the basis of a diagnostic test for bovine tuberculosis where Mycobacterium bovis sensitised effector T cells produce IFN-γ following in vitro stimulation with tuberculin antigens. In cattle infected with M. bovis it is also known that the...

Abstract

Mycobacterium bovis, the causative agent of bovine tuberculosis (BTB), is endemic in the Kruger National Park (KNP), South Africa. African lions (Panthera leo) are susceptible to BTB, but the impact of the disease on lion populations is unknown. In this study, we used a novel gene expression assay...

Abstract

Background: Bovine tuberculosis (TB) control programs generally rely on the tuberculin skin test (TST) for ante-mortem detection of Mycobacterium bovis-infected cattle. Results: Present findings demonstrate that a rapid antibody test based on Dual-Path Platform (DPP®) technology, when applied 1-3...

Abstract

Mycobacterium bovis is the etiologic agent of bovine tuberculosis, a chronic infectious disease affecting livestock, wild animals, and sometimes humans. We report here three draft genome sequences of Mycobacterium bovis strains of spoligotypes SB0821 and SB0134, isolated from wildlife but...

Abstract

Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) calculated from whole genome sequencing (WGS) are ideally suited to study evolutionary relationships of pathogens and their epidemiology. Mycobacterium caprae infections have been documented frequently in cattle and red deer along the Bavarian and Austrian...

AbstractFull Text

Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is a chronic contagious disease caused by Mycobacterium bovis (Mb), which have wide host range in mammalian species, man included. In Italy, bTB is subjected to eradication programs in cattle, that could lead many regions to acquire Officially bovine Tuberculosis Free...

Abstract

Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is a major world-wide health problem that has been difficult to control, due to the lack of an effective vaccine and limited ability of the tuberculin skin test (TST) and the ancillary whole blood interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) release assay (IGRA) to detect all infected...

Abstract

Bovine tuberculosis, a reemerging zoonosis in diverse ecological scenarios, has been reported in the autochthonous Nebrodi black pig breed population used for meat production in Italy. During a routine abattoir inspection in 2013, 24 of 299 carcasses (8%) of Nebrodi black pigs presented ...
