Bovine tuberculosis Human cases of bovine tuberculosis are rare in developed countries because of pasteurization and testing programs. If you are travelling to rural areas abroad, you should be aware of the risks associated with bovine tuberculosis. What is bovine tuberculosis? Bovine tuberculosis (bTB) is a chronic bacterial disease of animals caused by members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex primarily by M. bovis, but also by M. caprae and to a lesser extent M. tuberculosis. It is a major infectious disease among cattle, and also affects other domesticated animals and certain wildlife populations, causing a general state of illness, . Background Bovine tuberculosis (bTB, caused by infection with Mycobacterium bovis) is endemic in the Irish cattle population, and the subject of a national eradication programme since the late s.

Mycobacterium bovis is not the major cause of human tuberculosis, which is caused by M. tuberculosis, but humans are susceptible to bovine TB. Humans can be infected both by drinking raw milk from infected cattle, or by inhaling infective droplets.

First, there is a zoonotic risk for individuals consuming raw milk and raw milk products from TB-infected animals. Second, infection with bovine TB compromises the health and reduces production in affected cattle; the presence of bovine TB can also result in trade restrictions. “An effective bovine tuberculosis eradication programme is needed to reduce and eventually eliminate its transmission to human populations,” says Perera Ortiz, who is also Chair of the zoonotic tuberculosis sub-section at the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease.
