    Project Details

    Description

    The main objective for the current WP (WP6) in ParaTBTools will be to optimise the antigen specific interferon-gamma whole blood test for paratuberculosis infection by potentiating it with cytokines (e.g. IL-12/IL-18) and assessing it on naturally infected cattle and experimentally infected cattle and goats.
