Bovine tuberculosis (TB) has been diagnosed in a white-tailed deer in Franklin County, Ind. This marks the first time the disease (more formally known as Mycobacterium bovis) has been found in a wild animal in Indiana. This finding means significant changes in disease monitoring requirements for cattle owners and deer hunters in the area. The [ ]Author: Gary Truitt.
INTRODUCTION. The human host serves as the only natural reservoir for Mycobacterium ability of the organism to efficiently establish latent infection has enabled it to spread to nearly one-third of the world's population .According to the World Health Organization report, in , an estimated 10 million new cases of tuberculosis (TB) and million deaths among HIV.

Tuberculosis disease is caused by infection with organisms of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex. Most infections caused by M tuberculosis complex in children and adolescents are asymptomatic. When tuberculosis disease occurs, clinical manifestations most often appear 1 to 6 months after infection (up to 18 months for osteoarticular disease) and include fever, weight loss or poor weight.
Lack of sensitivity in smear examination, non specificity of radiological findings, extended tum around time ofMycobacterium tuberculosis culture and difficulties in diagnosing paucibacillary, childhood and extrapulmonary tuberculosis has necessitated to explore the utility of immunodiagnosis of tuberculosis as a convenient and cost effective Cited by: Introduction.
The first international meeting on new biomarkers and tools for the immunodiagnosis of M. tuberculosis infection and disease, entitled Immunodiagnosis of Tuberculosis: New Questions, New Tools, was held September 21 to 23, in Virginia Beach, Virginia, United objective of the conference was to integrate the most recent knowledge generated through basic Cited by: 2.

Bovine Tuberculosis in. White-Tailed Deer. Bovine Tuberculosis (TB) is the most infectious type of TB, able to infect most mammals.

Tuberculosis (TB) remains one of the most serious public health problems with one third of the world population latently infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
The diagnosis of LTBI relied until recently on the tuberculin skin test (TST) where a crude mixture of antigens is injected intradermally and induration is measured after 74 hours. Tuberculosis caused by Mycobacterium bovis has been identified in a wide variety of free-ranging wildlife as well as domestic animals (35).
In recent years, awareness of the importance of tuberculosis in wildlife has increased, not only as a potential reservoir of infection for domestic animals, but also as a threat to valuable wildlife species.
In this study, novel serological tests were used to detect tuberculosis (TB) in groups of farmed red deer (Cervus elaphus) varying in disease status or possible confounding factors. Groups of deer naturally or experimentally infected with Mycobacterium bovis and animals vaccinated against paratuberculosis were studied, as were uninfected animals and animals naturally or experimentally infected Cited by: test (SCT) in uninfected red deer, elk, whitetail deer, fallow deer and reindeer.
The Stat-Pak appears to detect the same or a higher percentage of naturally infected elk, red deer and white-tailed deer, when compared to the SCT. There are too few naturally infected reindeer to evaluate the performance of the test in this species.
Red deer (Cervus elaphus) is regarded as an epidemiologically relevant host for Mycobacterium bovis (M. bovis) and closely related members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex that cause animal tuberculosis (TB).

A 3-dimensional structure of 10 kDa of chaperonin 10 of M. tuberculosis also has shown structural homology with that of groES and M. leprae chaperonin Even if ESAT-6 and CFP are used in the specific diagnosis of TBM, CFP might result in a false-positive reaction, leading to misdiagnosis, especially in TB of the by: 3.
