Johne's disease is a global devastating and incurable disease of dairy cows, sheep and goats caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium Paratuberculosis sub. Avium, (MAP). An overwhelming number of evidences have shown that MAP is the causative agent of Crohn's disease in humans. Dairy products, contaminated with MAP, are the vehicles by which the infection spreads in the human intestine. Applied Genetics employs the use of GeneThera HerdCheck™ to test and control the spread of Johne's disease in Mexico.
HerdCheck™ is a proprietary molecular diagnostic system based on the use of high throughput robotics and Real time PCR.
