An experimental oral infection of goats with a caprine isolate of Mycobacterium a. subsp. paratuberculosis was used to investigate immunological and bacteriological events during the subclinical phase of infection. Seven goats at 5-8 weeks of age were given a bacterial suspension in milk-replacement three times weekly for 9 weeks. Six animals were kept as controls. Cellular recall responses against M. a. paratuberculosis were analysed by means of a lymphocyte proliferation test, an IFN-gamma… CONTINUE READING
