Abstract

The objective of the study was to elucidate whether the use of the needle-free Dermojet syringe, which is based on a high pressure inoculation and is used to inject tuberculin in cattle in several countries, may, in itself, cause skin reactions that can be interpreted as positive reactions to the...

Abstract

In the European Union, the recommended ante-mortem diagnostic methods for bovine tuberculosis (bTB) include the single intradermal cervical comparative tuberculin (SICCT) test and the interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) test as an ancillary test. The SICCT test has a moderate sensitivity (Se) and high...
