Abstract

Tuberculosis in animals is caused principally by infection with Mycobacterium bovis and the potential for transmission of infection to humans is often the fundamental driver for surveillance of disease in livestock and wild animals. However, with such a vast array of species susceptible to...

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 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 is one of the biggest challenges facing cattle farming in Great Britain. European badgers (Meles meles) are a reservoir host for the causal agent, Mycobacterium bovis. There have been significant recent advances in diagnostic testing for tuberculosis in humans, cattle and ...

Abstract

Background: Accurate diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB) due to infection with Mycobacterium bovis is notoriously difficult in live animals, yet important if we are to understand the epidemiology of TB and devise effective strategies to limit its spread. Currently available tests for diagnosing TB in...

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

A real-time PCR assay for the measurement of gamma interferon (IFN-γ) mRNA in European badger (Meles meles) blood cultures was developed. The levels of IFN-γ mRNA in blood cultures stimulated with either bovine or avian tuberculin or specific mycobacterial antigens were compared with those in a...

Abstract

The development of an improved ELISA-based test for the detection of tuberculosis (TB) in badgers (Meles meles) is described. This test, named Dachs TB-ELISA, utilizes multiple antigens as targets for the serological response. Seventy-four badger serum samples were obtained in the UK and subjected...
