New tools for detecting and monitoring TB in captive elephants

New tools for detecting and monitoring TB in captive elephants

Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the organism that causes tuberculosis in humans, also afflicts Asian (and occasionally other) elephants. Diagnosing and treating elephants with TB is a challenge, however, as little is known about how their immune systems respond to the infection. [More]
