New route of TB transmission identified

Scientists have discovered a new species of bacteria, Mycobacterium mungi, that causes tuberculosis (TB) and is transmitted through the skin and nose of banded mongoose in Northern Botswana. Researchers have found that this species of TB is transmitted environmentally through urine and anal gland secretions used in olfactory communication, infecting mongoose through injuries in the skin and nose. The findings radically changes scientists understanding of how tuberculosis can be transmitted which have critical implications for TB outbreak potential among wildlife and livestock.
