There is significant interest in developing vaccines to control bovine tuberculosis, especially in wildlife species where this disease continues to persist in reservoir species such as the European Badger (Meles meles).

Seine-Maritime, Côte-d'Or and Dordogne/Charente are areas of high prevalence of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) in cattle or wildlife. In these areas, surveys have been carried out to monitor the presence of bTB in badgers, a species considered as a bTB maintenance host in British Islands. Post- mortem...
