This book is contemporary, topical and global in its approach,
and provides an essential, comprehensive treatise on bovine tuberculosis
and the bacterium that causes it, Mycobacterium bovis. Bovine
tuberculosis remains a major cause of economic loss in cattle industries
worldwide, exacerbated in some countries by the presence of a
substantial wildlife reservoir. It is a major zoonosis, causing human
infection through consumption of unpasteurized milk or by close contact
with infected animals.
Following a systematic approach, expert
international authors cover epidemiology and the global situation;
microbial virulence and pathogenesis; host responses to the pathogen;
and diagnosis and control of the disease.
Aimed at researchers
and practicing veterinarians, this book is essential for those needing
comprehensive information on the pathogen and disease, and offers a
summary of key information learned from human tuberculosis research. It
will be useful to those studying the infection and for those responsible
for controlling the disease.
