Bovine ringworm caused by Trichophyton verrucosum is a notifiable disease in Norway. New infected herds are reported to the Norwegian Food Safety Authority. To limit spread of the disease, restrictions are imposed on holdings including access to common pastures and sale of live animals. Bovine ringworm has been endemic in the Norwegian dairy population for decades. Since 1980 a vaccine (Bovilis Ringvac LTF-130, Merck Animal Health) has been available. The vaccine contains an attenuated strain… 

Topics from this paper

[Practicing veterinarians' perception of bovine ringworm as herd health problem].
TLDR
Generally, practising veterinarians feel that bovine ringworm is being perceived as less important by farms than by themselves, and more information and offers regarding the treatment for ringworm could contribute to more effective engagement in the disease.
Using Biosecurity Measures to Combat Respiratory Disease in Cattle: The Norwegian Control Program for Bovine Respiratory Syncytial Virus and Bovine Coronavirus
TLDR
Reducing the incidence of BRD in cattle is essential and will lead to reduced antimicrobial usage while at the same time improving animal health, welfare and production, and alternative approaches to the traditional control measures are needed.
Common and Emerging Dermatophytoses in Animals: Well-Known and New Threats
TLDR
The purpose of this chapter is to trace the current changes in the epidemiology of animal-infecting dermatophytes that show large geographic differences and dynamically alter over time.
An uncommon dermatophyte infection: two cases of cutaneous infection with Trichophyton verrucosum
TLDR
Skin scrapings for potassium hydroxide microscopy and culture are essential for accurate diagnosis of T. verrucosum skin infections in Irish farmers, due to misdiagnosis of the condition as a bacterial infection in the primary care setting.
Real-Time PCR as an Alternative Technique for Detection of Dermatophytes in Cattle Herds
TLDR
This study evaluated the analytical specificity and clinical application of direct sample real-time PCR by comparison with direct microscopy and culture methods and described an interesting case of the isolation of two different species of dermatophytes from the same clinical lesion.
Detection of dermatophytes in healthy companion dogs and cats in eastern India.
TLDR
This study detected the occurrence of dermatophytes with antifungal susceptibility among the companion animals in and around Kolkata during 2011-2013 in the first systemic report of Dermatophytes in healthy companion animals with large numbers of samples in India.
The Treatment of Ringworm with Silver Nitrate Pencil in Cattle: Only One Application
In this study, topical effectiveness of silver nitrate pencil on 33 dairy cows with ringworm (Fig. 1) was evaluated. The diameter, number and localized areas of lesions were recorded in each cattle.
Occurrence of Trichophyton verrucosum in cattle in the Ningxia Hui autonomous region, China
TLDR
The presence of Trichophyton verrucosum in cattle in Ningxia is reported for the first time and the incidence of dermatophytosis is related to different regions, ages and seasons, which may allow for more efficient control measures and prophylaxis.
[Occupational Trichophyton verrucosum infection in a cattle farmer].
TLDR
Ringworm in cattle may cause an occupational skin disease in humans and deep dermatophyte infections by Trichophyton verrucosum can be treated effectively with oral terbinafine.
Resolving the taxonomy of emerging zoonotic pathogens in the Trichophyton benhamiae complex
TLDR
The need to follow polyphasic approach in species delimitation of Trichophyton benhamiae pathogens is demonstrated, due to considerable phenotypic similarity of many dermatophytes and phenomena such as incomplete lineage sorting or occasional hybridization and introgression.

Efficacy of a live attenuated Trichophyton verrucosum vaccine for control of bovine dermatophytosis
TLDR
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy of the LTF-130 vaccine on a Hertfordshire beef-rearing unit with endemic T verrucosum.

TLDR
The results show that the prophylactic effect of the vaccine is very good and with full vaccination throughout a district it seems possible to control ringworm in cattle.
Immunity in cattle vaccinated against ringworm
TLDR
Protective properties of the Czechoslovak vaccine and a USSR vaccine were high and comparable, the immunity persisting for at least one year.
Immunisation against ringworm in cattle
TLDR
During the last five years, no newly infected herds have been registered in Gausdal, Norway, and proper disinfection of premises, the isolation of infected animals and other hygienic measures contributed to the successful result.
Vaccination of cattle against ringworm caused by Trichophyton verrucosum.
TLDR
It was concluded that trichophytosis in cattle can be controlled by immunoprophylaxis and side effects associated with the vaccination occur infrequently.

TLDR
The literature on immunoprophylaxis as control method for ringworm in cattle is reviewed and the efficacy and safety of live dermatophyte vaccines have been demonstrated in both challenge experiments and field trials.
Immunoprophylaxis of Dermatophytosis in Animals
TLDR
A delayed type hypersensitivity (DTH) skin test using appropriate dermatophyte antigens is suitable to assess the response and future research should focus on identification of major T-cell epitopes that specifically elicit a DTH reaction.
[Comparative immunological studies and the determination of the epizootiological effectiveness of Soviet vaccine LTF-130 in trichophytosis].
TLDR
It was found that vaccinated calves react by producing complement binding antibodies up to the 45th day post immunization, and no cases of herpes were observed in animals vaccinated prophylactically.
[The effectiveness of LTF 130 Trichophyton vaccine under field conditions].
TLDR
The incidence of ringworm was reduced when the animals were vaccinated at an early age or when the dosage was increased on vaccination later in life.
In vitro release of interferon-gamma by trichophytin-stimulated whole blood cell cultures from ringworm-vaccinated and control calves experimentally inoculated with Trichophyton verrucosum.
TLDR
It is shown that vaccination with Ringvac bovis LTF-130 elicits a protective immune response suggesting involvement of the cellular branch of the immune system and stimulation of a cell-mediated immune response essential for resolution of lesions.
