PROJECT SPOTLIGHT

Johne's and Crohn's disease: The role of Mycobacterium avium

Johnes’s disease (JD) is a wasting disease that affects a number of animals, including cattle, sheep, goats, deer, and camelids. The aetiological agent is Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP). Different strains of this bacterium cause disease in different animals, although cross-infection can occur.
