Abstract

The emergence of wildlife reservoirs of Mycobacterium bovis infection in cattle as well as increased inter-regional trade with associated spread of M. bovis has led to renewed interest in the use of vaccines for the control of bovine tuberculosis (TB). Field efficacy trials performed in the early...

Abstract

Mycobacterium bovis is the cause of tuberculosis in animals and sometimes humans. Many developed nations have long-standing programmes to eradicate tuberculosis in livestock, principally cattle. As disease prevalence in cattle decreases these efforts are sometimes impeded by passage of M. bovis...

Abstract

Complex and dynamic interactions involving domestic animals, wildlife, and humans create environments favorable to the emergence of new diseases, or reemergence of diseases in new host species. Today, reservoirs of Mycobacterium bovis, the causative agent of tuberculosis in animals, and sometimes...

Abstract

This article discusses the role of badgers (Meles meles) as reservoir hosts in the transmission of bovine tuberculosis in the UK, and how control programmes (including culling) must also consider these animals. The role of other wild animals in other countries (possums in New Zealand, feral...

Abstract

Bovine tuberculosis is a bacterial disease caused by Mycobacterium bovis in livestock and wildlife with hosts that include Eurasian badgers (Meles meles), brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula), and white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus). Risk-assessment efforts in Michigan have been...

Abstract

This article outlines the different monitoring methods used to detect Mycobacterium bovis infection in wild populations as well as examples of developed countries where wildlife reservoirs have been identified (Spain, UK, France, New Zealand, Australia and USA). The control measures in effect and...

Abstract

Wildlife reservoir hosts of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) include Eurasian badgers (Meles meles) and brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula) in the UK and New Zealand, respectively. Similar species warrant further investigation in the northern lower peninsula of Michigan, USA due to the continued...

Abstract

During a survey for tuberculosis in wild carnivores and omnivores, M. bovis was cultured from pooled lymph nodes of 3 adult female coyotes (Canis latrans) harvested by hunters in Michigan (USA) between 1996 and 1997. No gross or histological lesions suggestive of tuberculosis were seen in these...

Abstract

During a survey of carnivores and omnivores for bovine tuberculosis conducted in Michigan (USA) since 1996, Mycobacterium bovis was cultured from lymph nodes pooled from six coyotes (Canis latrans) (four adult female, two adult male), two adult male raccoons (Procyon lotor), one adult male red fox...
