Project(s): Tuberculosis in alpine wildlife - monitoring diagnostics and potential control strategies of tuberculosis in wild animals in the alpine provinces of Austria, Germany, Italy and Switzerland


Abstract:
To estimate the prevalence of bovine tuberculosis in the Alpine region, we studied the epidemiology of Mycobacterium caprae in wildlife during the 2009-2012 hunting seasons. Free-ranging red deer (Cervus elaphus) were a maintenance host in a hot-spot area, mainly located in Austria.
