Abstract

The aim of the study was to describe, over a period of 24 weeks, the pathological and bacteriological changes in badgers experimentally infected with Mycobacterium bovis. The badgers were infected by endobronchial instillation of 2.5×104 colony forming units (cfu) M. bovis. After infection, the ...

Abstract

Mycobacterium bovis is endemic in badger (Meles meles) populations of Ireland and the United Kingdom and infected badgers are a potential source of infection for cattle. In domestic livestock tuberculosis causes economic losses from lost production and the costs associated with eradication...

Eurasian badgers (Meles meles) are a reservoir host of Mycobacterium bovis and are implicated in the transmission of tuberculosis to cattle in Ireland and Great Britain. The development of a vaccine for use in badgers is considered a key element of any long-term sustainable campaign to eradicate...

Abstract

Vaccination against bovine tuberculosis is likely to become an important disease control strategy in developing countries, which cannot afford a test and slaughter control programme, or in countries which have a wildlife reservoir of Mycobacterium bovis infection. In the past decade, considerable...

Abstract

The Eurasian badger (Meles meles) is considered to be an important wildlife reservoir of Mycobacterium bovis infection for cattle in Ireland and in Great Britain. The inability to eradicate the disease from cattle is, in part, a consequence of M. bovis infection in badgers sharing the environment...
