    Default Diagnosis and Control of Johne's Disease

    Diagnosis and Control of Johne's Disease
    By National Research Council

    Pages: 244
    Publisher: National Academies Press
    Edition: 2003

    Johne's Disease is a chronic, progressive intestinal disease caused by infection with Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (Map) that affects primarily ruminant animals. In recent decades there has been growing concern over the lack of effective control of this disease and questions have arisen regarding the possibility that Map infection could be a cause of some cases of Crohn's disease in humans.
    Text is a report from the Committee on Diagnosis and Control of Johne's Disease and the Board of Agriculture and Natural Resources examining this disease in livestock and its possible connection to Crohn's disease in humans. Discusses various control programs tailored to specific animal species and suggests more scientific testing be done to explore possible connections.
    This report presents a broad outline of the steps that should be taken to control Johne's disease, reduce the spread of Map, and minimize effects of the disease in animals. The report also describes the weaknesses of our current research agenda and provides recommendations for a new research strategy to resolve the question of whether there is a link between Johne's and Crohn's diseases.
