Abstract

The incidence of Mycobacterium bovis, the causative agent of bovine tuberculosis, has been increasing in UK cattle herds resulting in substantial economic losses. The European badger (Meles meles) is implicated as a wildlife reservoir of infection. One likely route of transmission to cattle is...

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

Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is a persistent problem in cattle herds in Great Britain and Ireland. Whilst the involvement of badgers in the transmission cycle of Mycobacterium bovis is well established, the route of transmission from wildlife to cattle and visa versa is not understood sufficiently to...

Abstract

Advances in the diagnosis of Mycobacterium bovis infection in wildlife hosts may benefit the development of sustainable approaches to the management of bovine tuberculosis in cattle. In the present study, three laboratories from two different countries participated in a validation trial to evaluate ...

Abstract

This article discusses the issues regarding the probability of detecting Mycobacterium bovis by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in soil samples from the spoil heaps of main badger (Meles meles) setts in the UK is correlated with the prevalence of excretion (infectiousness) of captured badgers...

Abstract

Realtime polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was used to detect and quantify Mycobacterium bovis cells in naturally infected soil and badger (Meles meles) faeces. Immunomagnetic capture, immunofluorescence and selective culture confirmed species identification and cell viability. These techniques will...

Abstract

Mycobacterium bovis is the causative agent of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) in cattle and wildlife. Direct aerosol contact is thought to be the primary route of infection between conspecifics, whereas indirect transmission via an environmental reservoir of M. bovis is generally perceived not to be a...

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 ...
