Recent studies have showed estimations of worldwide 50 million cattle infections with M. bovis, at a cost to the agricultural community of 2-3 billion € per year. In developing countries, M. bovis infection is still widespread, in both cattle and humans. Even in developed countries, successful eradication of disease from livestock is hampered by the presence of wildlife reservoirs of M. bovis. Und ...

"Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) started, 20 years ago, a devastating health and food crisis throughout Europe. Classical BSE is now under control as a result of the meat and bone meal ban. However, tonsil analyses suggest that there may be an alarmingly high number of asymptomatic PrPSc positive cases. Transmission through blood transfusion is another important concern, as are recent “atyp ...

A new generation of fibre-based diagnostic sensors (BiognostiX)

Start date: Apr 1, 2011, End date: Mar 31, 2014,

The BiognostiX project will develop technologies and flexible manufacturing methods for the fabrication of inexpensive biodiagnostic sensors on fibre-based substrates (e.g. paper or card).Fabrication will be based on fluid-jet techniques, allowing the sensor platforms to be reconfigurable (customisable) at the point of manufacture to perform different biodiagnostic test functions including quantit ...

Strategies for the eradication of bovine tuberculosis (TB-STEP)

Start date: Oct 1, 2008, End date: Jun 30, 2012,

"Tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused by the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex. This infection affects domestic and wild animals and represents a major concern worldwide because of its high economic impact due to mortalities, condemnations, decreases in productions, and its zoonotic potential. Eradication programmes based on a test-and-slaughter policy in the EU have proved successful i ...
