Overview

Paratuberculosis, also referred to as Johne's disease, affects cattle, goats, sheep, buffalo, deer and other ruminants. It is common worldwide and responsible for significant economic losses in the dairy industry. Recent advances in detection, vaccination and microbial genetics make this a timely book that examines the epidemiology of paratuberculosis, the organism that causes the disease, and practical aspects of its diagnosis and control. It also addresses the link between paratuberculosis in the food chain and human health implications, including Crohn's disease. This authoritative text is an essential resource for large animal veterinarians, livestock industry personnel and those involved in the dairy and meat industries, as well as microbiologists, researchers and students in these fields.
