Action 854 Protozoal Reproduction Losses in Farm Ruminants
|Coordinating organisation:||State Food and Veterinary Service|
|Description:||Infectious organisms can cause significant losses in farm ruminant production as a result of abortion, embryonic damage or maternal infertility. Abortion in ruminants may pose a very considerable public health risk as many of the pathogens that cause disease in ruminants may pose a significant danger to humans. |
The main objective of this Action is to develop strategies to control reproductive diseases caused by protozoa in farm ruminants. Areas covered are biology, biochemistry and genetic background of virulence; pathogenesis and host immune responses; diagnosis; epidemiology, economics and control.
