Abstract

1. The European badger (Meles meles) is implicated as a reservoir of Mycobacterium bovis (bovine TB) infection for cattle in Britain and Ireland. In the present study the spatio-temporal distribution of M. bovis infection was investigated. Analyses were carried out on data from a long-term...

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

Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is a persistent problem in cattle herds in Great Britain and Ireland. Farm management and cattle husbandry practices can influence the risk of transmission of bTB and hence the likelihood of bTB breakdown (≥1 reactor to the tuberculin skin test). Biological differences are ...

Abstract

The four-area project was undertaken to further assess the impact of badger removal on the control of tuberculosis in cattle herds in Ireland. It was conducted between 1997 and 2002 in matched removal and reference areas in four counties, namely Cork, Donegal, Kilkenny and Monaghan, representing a...

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

Wildlife species, such as badgers, act as maintenance hosts for Mycobacterium bovis and contribute to the spread and persistence of tuberculosis in associated cattle populations. In areas in which there is a tuberculosis problem affecting a number of herds, the involvement of infected wildlife in...

Abstract

Tuberculosis (TB) is a chronic disease caused by Mycobacterium bovis and related members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex. Infection affects not only cattle but also other livestock species, companion animals and wild mammals. Humans are also susceptible; hence, zoonotic infection is a...

Abstract

This review summarizes current knowledge relating to the potential development of a vaccine against Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis) for use in badgers. The serious economic loss incurred from bovine tuberculosis in Ireland is highlighted. The problems presented to national bovine tuberculosis...

Abstract

The risk of a trade restriction to cattle herds between 1990 and 1994, as a result of failing the tuberculin skin test or disclosure of visible lesions in the abattoir, was compared in 2 areas in East Offaly, Irish Republic. Cattle herds from the project area where badgers were systematically...
