It will treat TB in African Buffalo

There is a strain of TB which is an extremely slow but steadily progressing disease, that poses a serious health threat to cattle, wildlife and people, especially in developing countries. In Africa, many farmers have lost livestock due to this disease. Now, the University of Pretoria seems to have a solution. They have announced that they will be trailing a vaccine on African Buffalo. Approximately 26 buffalo will be treated with the new vaccine. If the trails are successful, the vaccine will be rolled out on a larger scale.
