Knowledge of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) by cattle handlers is of extreme importance to policy makers when considering mitigation. However, to our knowledge, little is known on cattle handlers' knowledge of bTB in Bangladesh. Similarly, such knowledge is uncommon within and outside Bangladesh. The current study investigates the bTB knowledge of cattle owners in Godagari Upazila, Rajshahi. A cross sectional study was designed and data was gathered based on stratified random sampling technique. The raw data was collected through 500 cattle handlers subjected to an interviewer administered questionnaire. The study has revealed the levels of knowledge among cattle handlers about bovine tuberculosis.

This book is contemporary, topical and global in its approach, and provides an essential, comprehensive treatise on bovine tuberculosis and the bacterium that causes it, Mycobacterium bovis. Bovine tuberculosis remains a major cause of economic loss in cattle industries worldwide, exacerbated in some countries by the presence of a substantial wildlife reservoir. It is a major zoonosis, causing human infection through consumption of unpasteurised milk or by close contact with infected animals. Following a systematic approach, expert international authors cover epidemiology and the global situation; microbial virulence and pathogenesis; host responses to the pathogen; and diagnosis and control of the disease. Aimed at researchers and practising veterinarians, this book is essential for those needing comprehensive information on the pathogen and disease, and offers a summary of key information learned from human tuberculosis research. It will be useful to those studying the infection and for those responsible for controlling the disease.

This book recounts the biology of M. bovis, followed by the status of bovine Tuberculosis (bTB) in African countries, primarily based on zoonotic and epidemiological field reports. Since the accumulation of data is valueless unless it led to practicable control measures, emphasis is put on locally adapted protocols for future control of the disease. In order to systematically evaluate the knowledge base of bTB, Epidemiologic Problem Oriented Approach (EPOA) methodology was used. The methodology is composed of two triads: i) the problem identification/characterization triad, which is mainly descriptive in nature, and ii) the problem management/solution/mitigation triad, which is mainly geared toward problem management/solution (see figure). The first triad comprises three pillars: i) agent ii) host, and iii) environment and the second one: i) therapeutics/treatment, ii) prevention/control, and iii) health maintenance/promotion. The two triads are linked together by the diagnostic procedure linkage. The systematic and detailed studies of the ‘Host-Agent-Environment’ interactions are the building blocks to the understanding of agent transmission pathways and disease spread. These may include data about the disease status of the country, the nature of the disease agent and its hosts, the modes of transmission, the wildlife reservoirs in nature, persistence of infection, and agent survival in animal products and the environment. The problem identification and characterization triad identifies these interactions. Once a problem has been identified and well understood, the next step is to minimize the risk of transmission and spread of a disease. This area, referred to as problem solution/management triad, consists of problem management alternatives that rely upon prevention/control, and health maintenance/promotion of the disease in livestock, wildlife, and humans with the emphasis on resource-poor, developing countries in Africa.

Zoonotic Tuberculosis: Mycobacterium bovis and OtherPathogenic Mycobacteria, Third Edition is a comprehensivereview of the state of the art in the control and elimination ofinfections caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex inanimals and humans. This update to the most complete and currentreference available on Mycobacterium bovis includes newcoverage of the latest molecular techniques; more information onhuman infection and One Health; updates to the information on theInternational Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (IUATLD),the World Health Organization (WHO), Pan American HealthOrganization (PAHO), and the United States Department ofAgriculture’s (USDA) National Tuberculosis EradicationProgram; and coverage of additional African countries. TheThird Edition upholds the book’s reputation as a truly globalresource on M. bovis. Written by an international list of tuberculosis experts,chapters cover the status of tuberculosis in many regionsthroughout the world and deal with issues related to the detection,spread, and control of Mycobacterium bovis, as well as theeconomic impact of outbreaks. Zoonotic Tuberculosis:Mycobacterium bovis and Other Pathogenic Mycobacteria offersvaluable information for public health officials, medical doctors,state and federal regulatory veterinarians, veterinarypractitioners, and animal caretakers.

This open access book provides the first critical history of the controversy over whether to cull wild badgers to control the spread of bovine tuberculosis (bTB) in British cattle. This question has plagued several professional generations of politicians, policymakers, experts and campaigners since the early 1970s. Questions of what is known, who knows, who cares, who to trust and what to do about this complex problem have been the source of scientific, policy, and increasingly vociferous public debate ever since. This book integrates contemporary history, science and technology studies, human-animal relations, and policy research to conduct a cross-cutting analysis. It explores the worldviews of those involved with animal health, disease ecology and badger protection between the 1970s and 1990s, before reintegrating them to investigate the recent public polarisation of the controversy. Finally it asks how we might move beyond the current impasse.

Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is a significant zoonotic pathogen with a global distribution, and a considerable economic impact. It has a notoriously complex epidemiology, varying by affected region and often involving multiple-host species. Here we present an international collection of papers that address both national and international factors impacting on the control of bovine tuberculosis. We hope this Research Topic will provide a forum which may generate a greater understanding of the disease in a wider context, and inform future eradication efforts through the design of more effective interventions.

Actinobacteria have an extensive bioactive secondary metabolism and produce a huge amount of naturally derived antibiotics, as well as many anticancer, anthelmintic, and antifungal compounds. These bacteria are of major importance for biotechnology, medicine, and agriculture. In this book, we present the experience of worldwide specialists in the field of Actinobacteria, exploring their current knowledge and future prospects.
