Abstract

In the UK and Ireland, Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccination of badgers has been suggested as one of a number of strategies to control or even eradicate Mycobacterium bovis infection in badgers. In this manuscript, we present the results of a badger field trial conducted in Ireland and discuss...

Abstract

The principal wildlife reservoir of Mycobacterium bovis in Ireland is the European badger. Studies in the Republic of Ireland (RoI) have shown that badgers culled in association with cattle herd tuberculosis breakdowns (focal culling) have a higher prevalence of infection than the badger population ...

Abstract

A long-term research programme has been underway in Ireland to evaluate the usefulness of badger vaccination as part of the national bTB (bovine tuberculosis) control strategy. This culminated in a field trial which commenced in county Kilkenny in 2009 to determine the effects of badger vaccination ...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to estimate the power of a badger vaccine field trial using simulation techniques. The effects of sample size, sensitivity and specificity of the diagnostic test, transmission rate between unvaccinated badgers, Vaccine Efficacy for Susceptibility (VEs) and Vaccine Efficacy ...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to estimate the power, using simulation techniques, of a group randomized vaccine field trial designed to assess the effect of vaccination on Mycobacterium bovis transmission in badgers. The effects of sample size (recapture percentage), initial prevalence, sensitivity and ...

Abstract

Bovine tuberculosis (TB), caused by infection with Mycobacterium bovis, is a persistent problem in cattle herds in Ireland and the United Kingdom, resulting in hardship for affected farmers and substantial ongoing national exchequer expenditure. There is irrefutable scientific evidence that badgers ...

Abstract

Localised persistence of infection is a key feature of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) among cattle herds in the Republic of Ireland (ROI). A case-control study was conducted on the association between the occurrence of a bTB episode in 2006 in ROI herds, and the occurrence of bTB in previous years among ...

Abstract

A spatio-temporal analysis of Mycobacterium bovis infection in badgers, an important wildlife-reservoir species, was undertaken in the Republic of Ireland. In total, 4,948 badgers with full capture and testing records were analysed using Generalised Estimating Equations (GEE). The overall badger...

Abstract

Significant improvement in bovine tuberculosis (BTB) levels has been achieved in Ireland over the past 10 years. This is attributed to a coordinated program of control and eradication in both the cattle herd and also in the wildlife reservoir, the badger, underpinned by a comprehensive research and ...

Abstract

Badgers are a wildlife host of Mycobacterium bovis, the causative agent of bovine tuberculosis (bTB), and an important contributor to the epidemiology of bTB in cattle in Ireland and Britain. Repeated culling of badgers in high prevalence cattle bTB areas has been used in the Republic of Ireland as ...
