Mycoplasma bovis, the main causative agent of mycoplasmal mastitis, arthritis and pneumonia in cattle, causes considerable economic losses. Veterinary hygiene measures would be most effective if introduced at an early stage, especially the culling of cows shedding the pathogen for the control of mastitis. It is therefore crucial to ensure that diagnostic methods are available which can perform rapid and specific detection of the agent at acceptable costs. Six different detection methods have… 

Tables from this paper

A review of mycoplasma diagnostics in cattle

TLDR
While each testing method has strengths and limitations, their combined use provides complementary information, which when interpreted in conjunction with clinical signs and herd history, facilitates pathogen detection, and characterization of the disease status of cattle populations.

Development of a polymerase chain reaction assay for the detection of Mycoplasma bovis

As the causative agent of mycoplasmal mastitis, Mycoplasma bovis is responsible for major economic losses. At present, the only method for combating the disease is good management practices involving

Comparison of serological , molecular and cultural diagnostic methods for the detection of Mycoplasma bovis infections in cattle *

Previous studies on Mycoplasma bovis in Poland have used serological methods and culture to isolate the causative organism. PCR and PCR/DGGE molecular tests, antigen ELISA, culture, and antibody

Detection of Mycoplasma bovis in preservative-treated field milk samples.

TLDR
In this paper, a nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR) procedure that allows for rapid testing of preservative-treated milk is validated and it is proved that the nested PCR assay was as sensitive as traditional culture and can be used on preservatives- treated milk.

Detection of Mycoplasma bovis in Pneumonic Calves

TLDR
The present study is the first local study at the moment which diagnoses Mycoplasma in general and mainly M. bovis from pneumonic calves from an outbreak of pneumonia in calves that occurred in Mosul city and mainly in Gogjaly village and recommended the use of molecular techniques and principally PCR for the diagnosis.

Mycoplasma bovis as an agent of mastitis, pneumonia, arthritis and genital disorders in cattle.

TLDR
The authors describe the main properties and reservoirs of the pathogen and summarise experimental evidence on modes of transmission to susceptible organs, and practical recommendations are given for prevention and control, including the formation of mycoplasma-free herds.

Gap analysis of Mycoplasma bovis disease, diagnosis and control: An aid to identify future development requirements

TLDR
No vaccines are commercially available; antimicrobial resistance is increasing; diagnostic and antimicrobial sensitivity testing needs to be improved; and a pen-side test would facilitate more rapid diagnosis and implementation of treatment with antimicrobials.

Diagnosis of Mycoplasma bovis infection in cattle by ELISA and PCR.

TLDR
Mycoplasma bovis was investigated in tracheal swab samples and sera collected from the cattle by using PCR and ELISA respectively and results showed that ELISA is a more useful method than PCR to detect M. Bovis infection.

Development and Performance Characterization of Double Antigen Sandwich ELISA for Mycoplasma bovis Antibody Detection

TLDR
The optimized DAS ELISA provided unambiguous improved serodiagnostic performance and sufficient sensitivity, specificity, and it will be an improved tool for M. bovis surveillanceand prevention.

Detection of Mycoplasma bovis using in vitro deoxyribonucleic acid amplification.

TLDR
It was shown that direct PCR detection from milk is possible after effective protein removal by combined extraction and protease digestion, and species-specific nucleic acid probes were sequenced and suitable PCR primers selected.

Preparation and characterization of monoclonal antibodies against Mycoplasma bovis.

TLDR
Two stable lines of monoclonal antibodies against Mycoplasma (M.) bovis showed no cross-reaction to other bovine mycoplasmas, thus rendering them useful for specific detection of this pathogen.

ELISA for detection of Mycoplasma pneumoniae antigens using monoclonal antibodies

TLDR
The test is equally sensitive to another recently described ELISA using polyclonal antibodies and in comparison with other recommended methods such as immunoblot and culture‐amplified antigen detection assays, the ELISA is more rapid and less laborious.

Detection of Mycoplasma bovis specific IgG in bovine serum by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.

TLDR
The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was optimized for detection of Mycoplasma bovis-specific IgG in bovine serum and demonstrated the presence of antibodies early in infection and rapid increase in titers during the infection.

Detection of Mycoplasma bovis specific IgG in bovine serum by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.

TLDR
The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was optimized for detection of Mycoplasma bovis-specific IgG in bovine serum and demonstrated the presence of antibodies early in infection and rapid increase in titers during the infection.

Enzootic mycoplasmal mastitis in a large dairy during an eight-year period.

TLDR
Sanitation on the farm during udder infusion and milking was a major factor in controlling the introduction and spread of mycoplasmal mastitis.

DNA probes for the detection of mycoplasmas in genital specimens.

TLDR
The utility of whole-genomic DNA probes for the detection of infections by genital mycoplasmas was investigated in 220 men attending a sexually transmitted diseases clinic, and probe-positive, culture-negative specimens suggest that false-negative cultures occurred.
