PBD Biotech welcomes BVA [British Veterinary Association] 'one health' approach to eradication of Bovine TB [Tuberculosis]


Allowing farmers with Official Tuberculosis Free (OTF) status to use APHA approved but currently un-validated tests for Bovine TB (bTB) is one of the recommendations of the British Veterinary Association (BVA) in its recent policy statement. PBD Biotech, developers of Actiphage, a rapid blood test for bTB, has welcomed this ‘one health’ approach as it empowers farmers and their vets to improve biosecurity on their farms.
