Abstract

Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is an infectious disease of cattle generally caused by Mycobacterium bovis, a bacterium that can elicit disease humans. Since the 1950s, the objective of the national bTB eradication program in Republic of Ireland was the biological extinction of bTB; that purpose has yet...

Abstract

Infection with the Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis) causes a disease referred to as bovine tuberculosis (bTB), which affects a wide range of mammal hosts. Many countries have implemented control and eradication plans that have resulted in variable levels of efficacy and success. Although bTB is a...

Abstract

Host resistance and infectivity are genetic traits affecting infectious disease transmission. This Perspective discusses the potential exploitation of genetic variation in cattle infectivity, in addition to resistance, to reduce the risk, and prevalence of bovine tuberculosis (bTB). In bTB,...

Abstract

Post-mortem examination continues to play an important surveillance role in the bovine tuberculosis (bTB) eradication programme in Northern Ireland. It is estimated that 18-28% of new bTB herd breakdowns are disclosed by the detection of bTB lesions in animals routinely slaughtered. The purpose of...

Abstract

In Spain, despite years of efforts to eradicate bovine tuberculosis (bTB), the disease is still endemic, with some areas of high prevalence. In this context, the surveillance and control plans may need to be re-evaluated, and understanding the dynamics of bTB spread within Spanish herds may help to ...

Abstract

Background: Biosecurity is at the forefront of the fight against infectious diseases in animal populations. Few research studies have attempted to identify and quantify the effectiveness of biosecurity against disease introduction or presence in cattle farms and, when done, they have relied on the...

Abstract

SWINE FEVER: a trial of the Chinese strain of lapinized virus showed that it was safe to use as a vaccine in Belgium. Antibodies to porcine picorna-virus (SMEDI virus) were found in at least 59 of 194 serum samples; their incidence did not seem to be related to abortion and sterility. A comparison...

Abstract

Foot and mouth disease virus. Type A. was rendered avirulent by 28 passages in day old chicks or 12 in embryonated eggs. These strains, were non-pathogenic, had good antigenicity and did not spread by contact. In field trials with the chick embryo strain immunity lasted at least eight months....

Abstract

Mycoplasma sp. was recovered from a herd of cows with high incidence of MASTITIS which did not respond to penicillin. In another herd, a slow growing organism similar to Streptococcus thermophilus was recovered. A survey was begun to deter-mine the point of entry of Salmonella spp. into meat meal....
