TUBERCULOSE BOVINE DANS UNE POPULATION DE CERFS ET DE SANGLIERS SAUVAGES : EPIDEMIOLOGIE ET MODELISATION

Abstract : Two epidemiological surveys conducted in the Brotonne and Mauny forests, Normandy, showed that the percentage of Mycobacterium bovis prevalence was important in red deer (Cervus elaphus) and wild boar (Sus scrofa). The genotype of the strains isolated from wildlife is the same as that of the strains circulating in nearby cattle herds since 1995. Sensitivity, specificity, and predictive values of the presence of macroscopic lesions seems to be satisfactory as a diagnostic criterion to monitor the disease in wild red deer populations in which bovine tuberculosis has become established. The different patterns of tuberculosis lesions between red deer and wild boar suggest that red deer would play an important role in dissemination of the infection. A deterministic model shows that the control strategy based on red deer eradication and exhaustive viscera harvest allows obtaining eradication of the infection.
