Abstract

Ongoing objective assessment, of national bovine tuberculosis (bTB) policy in Ireland is important to monitor efforts towards improved bTB control. The study objective was to investigate temporal trends in the risk of herd recurrence. The study included all herds derestricted following a bTB...

Abstract

Background: Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) caused by Mycobacterium bovis is the most serious endemic disease affecting livestock in the UK. The European badger (Meles meles) is the most important wildlife reservoir of bTB transmission to cattle, making eradication particularly difficult. In this...

Abstract

Accurate detection of infection with Mycobacterium bovis in live badgers would enable targeted tuberculosis control. Practical challenges in sampling wild badger populations mean that diagnosis of infection at the group (rather than the individual) level is attractive. We modelled data spanning 7...

Abstract

The incidence of Mycobacterium bovis, the causative agent of bovine tuberculosis, in cattle herds in the United Kingdom is increasing, resulting in substantial economic losses. The European badger (Meles meles) is implicated as a wildlife reservoir and is the subject of control measures aimed at...

Abstract

Mycobacterium bovis can be transmitted to various wild populations, and some of them are able to maintain or to spillback the infection to cattle, thus hampering control strategies. Our objective was to investigate the role of the different wild populations involved in the M. bovis multi-host...

Abstract

Bovine Tuberculosis due to Mycobacterium bovis (bTb) is a good example of an eradication process undergone in France since the 1950's. After an initial phase of relatively rapid decline in the number of infected farms in 50 years from an annual prevalence of about 25% to less than 0.02%, France was ...

Abstract

There has been a national bovine tuberculosis eradication programme in Ireland since 1954. Initial progress was rapid, but has subsequently stalled despite the implementation of each of the accepted elements of disease control. Based on results from the east Offaly and four area projects, there is...

Abstract

A research project that involved a survey of people's choices between different sets of attributes was conducted to estimate the values that people placed on the prevention of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) in cattle, changes to the size of the badger population and badger management strategies in...

Abstract

The control of diseases in human and livestock populations can be hampered by the existence of a reservoir of infection in wildlife. However, simplistic approaches of controlling such sources of infection by culling wildlife populations may not adequately address ecological complexities. In the UK...

Abstract

Since the 1970s the control of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) in cattle, predominantly in the SW of England has proved continually recalcitrant; it is currently increasing at an annual rate of 18%. This deterioration has occurred despite a succession of government schemes involving killing badgers, ...
