Etiology, treatment and prospects for vaccination against (papillomatous) digital dermatitis.

Abstract

The aetiology, treatment (footbaths, antibiotics), and prospects for vaccination are reviewed. In culture of bacteria from the lesions, Treponema sp was isolated most consistently. It is suggested that producing and testing a vaccine against Treponema would be a good start to producing a vaccine against the disease.
