Abstract

Although Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia is not a major animal health problem for the European Community, there were outbreaks from 1967 to 1984 in the region of the French-Spanish border and in Portugal since January 1983. In Portugal, the results of an epidemiological study undertaken on behalf of the national serological survey showed that a great number of lungs and lymph nodes of animals, with positive and doubtful serological reactions in the complement fixation test did not show macroscopic and/or microscopic lesions typical of CBPP. Most of those animals originated from regions later considered free of CBPP. The main objective of this seminar was to review the research work in progress in Portugal and other countries, aiming at improving the serological definition of the prodomic and chronic phases of the disease, discussing several aspects related to mycoplasmology and improving collaborative research work to be undertaken by the laboratories.
