It is estimated that ~90% of lameness in England is footrot, caused by Dichelobacter nodosus
(Kaler and Green, 2008).
Prevalence of ovine footrot in the tropical climate of southern India and isolation and characterisation of Dichelobacter nodosus
Identificacao e isolamento do Dichelobacter nodosus
e do Fusobacterium necrophorum de bovinos portadores de pododermatite, relacoes com a etiopatogenia, dados edafoclimaticos e avaliacao do tratamento [dissertacao].
Motility is linked to increased virulence in bacteria such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Dichelobacter nodosus
; however, whether motility plays a role in the virulence of A.
Little is known about how the bacterium, dichelobacter nodosus
, survives on the sheep or in the environment and this project aims to investigate the infection in order to advise farmers on control.
