Bovine tuberculosis diagnosis: An overview

Author(s): Pravin J Chaudhari, Bharat B Bhanderi, Yash A Desai and Bhoomi B Chaudhari
Abstract: Bovine TB (bTB) is chronic bacterial zoonosis disease. Humans are the primary host of M. tuberculosis (TB), but M. bovis causes bovine tuberculosis, which affects humans, domestic animals, and wildlife. Over 9 million people are affected with tuberculosis (TB), which continues to be the world's top cause of death. National control programs in developed countries have effectively managed bovine TB, but complete eradication and maintaining a bTB-free status pose challenges due to the risk of spillover from wildlife reservoir hosts. Changes in climate, human and animal movements, closer interspecies interactions, and animal management have led to the re-emergence of bovine TB in many developed countries. Approximately 94% of the world's population is either poor or absent in regulation of bTB in cattle or buffaloes, and in many developing countries, bTB regulations programmes has not been economically or socially acceptable. Due to India's lack of a control mechanism poses a possible threat for infection and transmission of bTB around the world.
