Contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP) is one of the major threats to cattle health and production in Africa. This article reviews the clinical manifestations, lesions and epidemiology of the disease. The clinical manifestations and lesions are typical and are no different in Africa from those seen in other countries. CBPP is a respiratory disease characterised by pneumonia and serofibrinous pleurisy. The usual form of this disease is acute but chronic forms are frequent, particularly in…

Serological Prevalence of Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia in Niger in 2017

The results of this serological survey are considered the reference situation (T0) of CBPP in Niger with the PRAPS project, and allowed the country to redefine control policies for better control of the disease at national and sub-regional level.

Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia: Challenges and Prospects Regarding Diagnosis and Control Strategies in Africa

Basic epidemiological features of CBPP, complicated by existing different strains of Mycoplasmas with similar biochemical characteristics, with preference to Sub-Saharan Africa are discussed and participatory epidemiology (PE), a diagnostic technique used in the identification and solving of animal health problems in rural communities, was discussed.

Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia: A Comprehensive Overview

The main features of CBPP are described including the causative agent, history, geographic distribution, epidemiology, clinical course, diagnosis, and control.

Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia

Investigation of the main problems for control or eradication are the frequent occurrence of subacute or subclinical infections and the persistence of chronic carriers after the clinical phase and the modified Campbell & Turner complement fixation test remains a prescribed test for international trade.

The first identification of contagious caprine pleuropneumonia (CCPP) in sheep and goats in Egypt: molecular and pathological characterization

Conclusively, infection with CCPP in goats and sheep is considered to be novel for Mccp in Egypt, where this species is thought to be the main pathogen in goats, not in sheep.

Contagious bovine pleuropneumonia: Seroprevalence and risk factors in Western Oromia, Ethiopia

The overall prevalence of CBPP in Western Oromia Zones was high and warrants the implementation of appropriate preventive and control measures to minimise the economic losses associated with the disease.

Seroprevalence and Distribution of Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia in Ethiopia: Update and Critical Analysis of 20 Years (1996–2016) Reports

Seroprevalence of CBPP is posing a major threat to cattle production in many parts of the country, thereby causing considerable economic losses through morbidity and mortality and great attention should be given both at production areas and the quarantine stations as its occurrence may affect the export earnings of the nation.

The Eradication of Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia from South Western Africa: A Plan for Action

The origins of the problem are explained, the current disease situation is described, and a plan for the eradication of CBPP from this area is proposed and discussed to act as a model for the elimination of the disease from the remainder of the continent.



Overview and epidemiology of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia in Africa.

The Pan-African Rinderpest Campaign strategy for CBPP control and eradication conforms with national control programmes, which include cost/benefit analysis, and is planned to perform blanket vaccination against the disease for three to five years, depending on the economic situation of each country.
