Abstract

Zoonotic diseases cause significant health and economic impact in developing countries such as India. Many zoonotic diseases are prevalent in the livestock and as an occupational zoonosis in the livestock farmers in India. Lack of knowledge on the disease transmission, prevention and control...

Abstract

The mutation accumulation theory of senescence predicts that age-related deterioration of fitness can be exaggerated when inbreeding causes homozygosity for deleterious alleles. A vital component of fitness, in natural populations, is the incidence and progression of disease. Evidence is growing...

Abstract

Interferon-gamma release assays are used for the diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB) in cattle as well as several other species. They rely on the measurement of IFN-γ, which is produced by sensitised T-cells after an infection with intracellular microbes. In Germany and the adjacent Austrian regions,...

Abstract

The diagnosis of Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis) infection in African buffaloes (Syncerus caffer) relies on detection of the cell-mediated immune response to M. bovis antigens using the single comparative intradermal tuberculin test (SCITT) or interferon gamma release assays (IGRAs). The aim of the...

Abstract

There is currently an increased interest in the use of serological approaches in combination with traditional cell-mediated immunity-based techniques to improve the detection of tuberculosis (TB)-infected animals. In the present study, we developed and validated two different serological...

AbstractFull Text

Both enzootic leukosis and tuberculosis are recognized in bovine as major causes of economic losses by decreasing production and immune resistance in hosts. Moreover, both diseases pose health risks for other animals and humans, requiring the introduction of severe quarantine of contaminated herds...

Abstract

Bovine tuberculosis (BTB) and brucellosis are major endemic zoonoses in ruminants in Morocco that impact on both animal and human health. This study presents an assessment of the epidemiological and socioeconomic burden of bacterial zoonoses in Sidi Kacem Province in Northern Morocco from a...
