Bovine Tuberculosis (BTB), caused by Mycobacterium bovis, is a well known zoonotic disease, which affects cattle worldwide, especially in developing countries, because of deficiencies in preventive and/or control measures, poor sanitation and health care. It is of great socio-economic and public health importance and of significance in international trade of animals and animal products. There were around 10 million new cases of human TB and 2 million deaths were reported annually, with sub-Saharan Africa displaying the highest annual risk of infection, probably aggravated by the expanding HIV epidemic and increasing drug resistance.
