Progressive pathology of staphylococcal mastitis with a note on control, immunisation and therapy
  1. JC Anderson


In the light of experimental work using the mouse model of staphylococcal mastitis and supported by material from staphylococcal mastitis in cows a progressive pathology of the disease in cattle is proposed. The rationale of the standard control measures (dry cow therapy, teat dipping, etc) is defended, the possibility of immunisation is doubted but the prospect of advances in therapy is thought to be good.
