BackgroundContagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP), an infection of cattle caused by the small colony biotype of Mycoplasma mycoides subspecies mycoides (MmmSC), is a significant constraint to improved pastoral cattle productivity in sub-Saharan Africa. This cross-sectional study was aimed to estimate serological prevalence of CBPP and identify risk factors for herd sero-positivity within agro-pastoral areas of Nigeria.ResultsThe herd level prevalence of CBPP was 54.7 % (95 % confidence… 
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.
Epidemiological Study and Causative Agent Identification of Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia in Selected Districts of Western Ethiopia
Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia (CBPP) is a highly contagious disease of cattle caused by Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides small colony (Mmm SC). A cross-sectional study design was conducted to
Seroprevalence of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia and contagious caprine pleuropneumonia in the Middle-Belt of Nigeria
The high seroprevalence of CBPP and CCPP in this study is suggestive of extensive CBPPand CCPP infection in Ilorin, Nigeria.
Serological survey and isolation of Mycoplasma mycoides subspecies mycoides from cattle slaughtered at Katsina state central abattoir, Nigeria
serological survey for the detection of antibodies to Mycoplasma mycoides subspecies mycoides (Mmm) from cattle slaughtered at Katsina Central Abattoir was conducted from March to October 2012 using
Seroprevalence, Isolation and Associated Risk Factors of Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia at Bako Tibe and Ilu Galan Districts of West Shoa Zone, Western Ethiopia
The cultural result shows that isolation the causative agent from lung tissue. Contagious bovine pleuropneumonia was endemic in the study area and confirmed by serology and isolation of the causative
Host-Pathogen Interactions of Mycoplasma mycoides in Caprine and Bovine Precision-Cut Lung Slices (PCLS) Models
PCLS represents a novel ex vivo model to study host-pathogen interaction in livestock mycoplasma and showed higher tropism to sub-bronchiolar tissue in caprine PCLS, which increased in a time-dependent manner.
Policy analysis for delivery of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia control strategies in sub-Saharan Africa.
The authors suggest the adoption of signed contractual agreements between the public and private sectors to support the vaccination of susceptible herds raised in endemic regions to increase vaccination coverage of susceptible cattle herds since current vaccination coverage is low.
Challenges of pastoral cattle production in a sub-humid zone of Nigeria
A greater importance of land constraints and rustling relative to disease is revealed and policy issues on management of natural resources and livestock development given challenges associated with pastoralism and insecurity in Nigeria are highlighted.

On-farm diagnosis of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia in nomadic herds using latex agglutination test (LAT)
Although this diagnostic test LAT is not new, this is the first time it’s being conducted in the area of study for the diagnosis of CBPP, and results indicate infection rates of 11.8% in adult animals and 19.6% in calves in Katsina State.
Prevalence of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia in Borno State, Nigeria
The disease is still endemic in Borno State and vaccination coverage was grossly inadequate and seasonal prevalence of the disease was found to be highest in rainy season than the dry season but was not statistically significant.

Contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (lungsickness) in Africa : historical overview : Onderstepoort and veterinary research in Africa
Contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP) or lung sickness, is an insidious pneumonic disease of cattle caused by Mycoplasma mycoides subspecies mycoides small colony variant (MmmSC) and it is one of
Performance evaluation of two serological tests for contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP) detection in an enzootic area using a Bayesian framework
The authors' results indicate that in enzootic areas, cELISA performs better in terms of sensitivity than CFT, and negative conditional sensitivity dependence between the two tests was detected, implying that to achieve maximum sensitivity, the two Tests should be applied in parallel.

The current scenario of CBPP disease epidemiology in sub-Saharan Africa requires that proactive measures are taken to safeguard countries in southern Africa which are currently free from CBPP from being contaminated by the disease thus affecting the beef industry and people's livelihoods.
