Zoonotic TB

Mycobacterium bovis is the main causative agent of bovine tuberculosis (BTB) that causes zoonotic tuberculosis (TB) in humans. Bovine TB is mostly acquired from domestic animals and their products, in which cattle’s are the major reservoir. The disease results in huge economic loss, particularly in urban and per-urban cross breed dairy cattle due to mortality, low productivity and carcass condemnation as well as trade restrictions of live animals, products and by products of animals. To prevent and control zoonotic TB, veterinary sectors must be cross sectored in controlling the disease in its animal reservoir, developing diagnostic tools for diagnosingM. bovis, strengthening surveillance systems and assessing economic impact.
