      In many regions of the world, wild mammals act as reservoir of Mycobacterium bovis, a situation that prevents the eradication of bovine tuberculosis. In order to observe whether a strain isolated from a wild boar, previously tested as highly virulent in a mice model, is also virulent in cattle, we performed cattle experimental inoculation with this strain Groups of Friesian calves were either Cited by: The significance of the identification of Mycobacterium bovis as a zoonotic pathogen in was not initially recognized. After years of research by veterinarians, and other scientists, the importance of M. bovis as a pathogen and the public health ramifications, were appreciated.

Tuberculosis, one of the oldest diseases known to affect humans, is caused by bacteria belonging to the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex. The disease usually affects the lungs, although in up to one-third of cases other organs are involved. If properly treated, tuberculosis caused by drug-susceptible strains is curable in virtually all cases.

Guinea pigs are synonymous with experimentation and this animal has been used to model several diseases of man (Padilla-Carlin et al. ).From the studies performed by Robert Koch to identify the causative agent of tuberculosis (TB) to the present day, the guinea pig has played its part to understand disease processes, to define important components of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and Cited by: Infection of guinea pigs with M.

tuberculosis strain 18b results in no clinical signs of disease. To begin the characterization of the infection caused by the M. tuberculosis strain 18b in guinea pigs the animals were inoculated intra-venously with a high dose of microorganisms (10 7 CFU) followed by daily sub-cutaneous administration of streptomycin for three weeks.

Though tuberculosis is a chronic disease in guinea pigs, one important feature of human tuberculosis is lacking in this model: a phase of real latency Turner et al. ;Sakamoto ). Also, guinea pigs are susceptible to certain serovars of M avium complex with lesions seen in lymph nodes associated with the GI tract.

Tuberculin skin tests can be conducted by injection of purified protein derivative of M bovis and of M avium ( dilution containing 5, tuberculin units) at separate sites in the skin of the abdomen.

Tuberculosis. Tuberculosis (Mycobacterium tuberculosis) is one of the most important bacterial diseases characterized in the guinea pig.The guinea pig model of tuberculosis is created by exposing the animal to a low-dose aerosol of bacilli (10 to 50 CFU), mimicking humanunlike other animal models (for example, mouse), substantial research suggests that the guinea Cited by: Pigs are susceptible to M tuberculosis, M bovis, and M avium complex.M avium avium and M avium hominissuis are most frequently isolated; serologic identification of isolates is useful in epidemiologic investigations.

Granulomatous lesions are most often found in the cervical, submandibular, and mesenteric lymph nodes, but in advanced disease lesions may also be found in the liver and spleen.

Tuberculosis starts out with symptoms somewhat like the flu. These include coughing, sneezing, and a fever, as it advances blood begins to show up in the phlegm that is expelled from the lungs, which is the classic sign of tuberculosis.

These include rabbit models infected with Mycobacte- rium tuberculosis by intra-ocular or intra-carotid injections [3], and a recent model in aerosol- infected guinea pigs [4], both of which have.

Tuberculosis in pigs and wild boar. Wild boar and pigs are suitable hosts for members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC), mainly M. bovis and M. caprae. This book chapter discusses the epidemiology; immunology; current methods of diagnosis and intervention against MTC infection in wild boar and pigs.

Methods Animals Female Hartley strain guinea pigs ( g) were obtained from Elm Hill Breeders (Chelmsford, MA). The German scientist Robert Koch used guinea pigs to discover that TB was caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis, in The sensitivity of the guinea pig to this and other infections, and the similarities of its immune defence system to that of humans, has made it important in the study of infectious diseases.
