Abstract

In last week's Veterinary Record, members of the Independent Scientific Group on Cattle TB discussed the approach they are adopting in attempting to develop sustainable strategies for controlling bovine tuberculosis in cattle (VR, February 19, pp 207-210). In this second, complementary article, they consider the extent to which efforts to control the disease may be constrained by limitations in current testing procedures.
