Investigation of the Prevalence, Diagnosis and Management of Johne's Disease

in Ontario Dairy Herds Project No: 25841,

Start Date MAY-01-2002 End Date: JAN-31-2006

Johnes disease, a chronic debilitating bacterial enteritis of cattle caused by Mycobacterium paratuberculosis, has long been considered a production limiting disease of moderate economic consequence to most North American dairy herds. Recently interest in the disease has increased dramatically as evidence accumulates for the potential link between Johnes disease and Crohn's disease in humans

Microbiologist Takes Closer Look at Disease-Causing Bug

Bacterium also implicated in human gastrointestinal disease By Andrew Vowles

Infectious disease experts studying one of the most serious chronic afflictions in dairy cattle may have an easier job thanks to research being done by Prof. Lucy Mutharia, Department of Microbiology.

She expects her studies will help in recognizing the bug that causes a debilitating gut infection in ruminants, particularly dairy cattle.

Besides helping to battle the wasting effects of Johne's disease, which costs Canada's dairy farmers millions of dollars a year, Mutharia's attempts to improve diagnostic procedures might benefit medical researchers studying human gastrointestinal disorders, specifically Crohn's disease.
