WP1: Cattle and human field surveillance of respiratory pathogens

In order to understand the role of IDV in cattle respiratory disease complex and its potential zoonotic risk for Human, the first step will be to survey IDV occurrence and prevalence in the 2 species (both cattle as the putative IDV reservoir and human) and collect field data to understand IDV’s place among the other pathogens.

The main WP1 objectives are to:

– study the transmission dynamics of IDV in cattle farms

– investigate the impact of IDV, associated with other respiratory pathogens or not, on the health, economic and production parameters of the cattle farm

– investigate the potential zoonotic transmission of IDV

The following pathogens are considered as major respiratory pathogens in cattle: (i) major respiratory viruses (bovine herpes, parainfluenza, respiratory syncytial, viral diarrhea, and coronaviruses), as well as (ii) major bacterial agents (Mannheimia haemolytica, Pasteurella multocida, Histophilus somni, Mycoplasma spp.).
