Abstract

A 25 kDa antigen of M. bovis has previously been identified as immunodominant during badger infections. The 25 kDa antigen was partially purified from sonicated M. bovis bacilli by using water precipitation and ion exchange chromatography, and its purification was monitored with a mouse monoclonal...

Abstract

The course of tuberculosis in a naturally infected badger population, its impact on the population and the risk of spread to other species in the light of capture data and post-mortem findings from 47 tuberculous badgers, stratified by age group and sex, accrued since 1975 was investigated. The...

Abstract

The intradermal inoculation of 4 badgers with small numbers of Mycobacterium bovis resulted in localized lesions with ulceration which healed slowly during 5 months after inoculation. Lesions of generalized tuberculosis were seen in one badger which died 17 months after inoculation and in two...

Abstract

Following epidemiological and ecological studies of a defined badger population in an area of East Sussex, removal of all badgers by cage trapping was attempted. Trapping was incomplete due to the activities of protesters. 47 badgers were caught from the 8 social groups. All badgers were examined...

Abstract

Between 1972 and 1987, 588 (3.9%) of 15 064 badgers examined in Great Britain were infected with Mycobacterium bovis. Infected badgers were detected in 16 of the 61 counties, mainly in the south and west of the mainland. The current information on the effect of M. bovis infection on badger...

Abstract

Immune responses were measured in two defined badger populations from East Sussex and Staffordshire, UK. The mean in vitro lymphoproliferative response, of all infected badgers from both areas, to Glaxo BCG, was greater than that of healthy animals. The infected badgers had higher antibody levels...

Abstract

Following the detection of Mycobacterium bovis infection in badgers in East Sussex in 1976, badgers have been examined from and around farms on which cattle have become infected, but with no other attributable source of infection. These farms are confined to the downland of the south-west of the...

Abstract

The dynamics of bovine tuberculosis infection in a wild badger population have been studied since 1981. Faeces are sampled regularly to determine the distribution of infection in the study area. Badgers in known infected social groups, plus the neighbouring groups, are periodically caught and...

Abstract

Four groups of 2 badgers were inoculated with 0.01 mg (104 bacilli) or 0.001 mg (103) of bovine tubercle bacilli by intradermal (i/d) or intratracheal (i/t) routes. Blood samples, collected monthly, were examined by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay and lymphocyte transformation test. Skin tests...

Abstract

The history and epidemiology of bovine tuberculosis in cattle herds in East Sussex are described. Since 1960, following the compulsory eradication scheme for tuberculosis, the incidence of herd infection has been low. The epidemiological features of herd infection have been sporadic incidents, with ...
