Lymphocyte transformation tests using phytohaemagglutinin and concanavalin A showed that both T and B lymphocytes are functional in tuberculous badgers. Dose response curves indicated that purified protein derivative sensitised lymphocytes were suppressed when cultured in the presence of the...

Abstract

Enzyme linked immunosorbent assay, Mycobacterium bovis PPD as antigen, was performed on serum from 33 naturally infected and 11 healthy badgers. Only 20 infected badgers were detected with the test, and many of the uninfected badgers gave significant colour reactions due to cross reacting...

After outbreaks of TB in cattle, 136 badgers, representing 24 social groups, were removed for PM examination. Mean group size varied little (4.8-7.6 individuals) but mean territory size varied greatly (22-75 ha). The prevalence of TB ranged from 6.9% to 34.5%.

Abstract

Complete attestation was declared in Great Britain in 1960 but the reactor rate remained significantly higher in areas of south-west England. A possible wildlife reservoir of infection was investigated after the identification of infected badgers in these areas. From 1971 to 1978, 5700 wild mammals ...
