A total of 745 slaughtered pigs were examined during routine meat inspection for suspected tuberculous lesions. Specimens from suspected lesions were collected for conventional mycobacteriologic examinations. Suspected mycobacterial colonies were subjected to molecular typing based on the Mycobacterium species-specific intergenic spacer (IGS) target. The study resulted in detection of suspected lesions in 110 (14.8%) carcasses, from which only 67 specimens produced suspected mycobacterial… CONTINUE READING
