Abstract: A retrospective cohort study involving various tuberculin tests was conducted to determine the trend in the extensive eradication program for bovine tuberculosis (EEPBT) in Korea from 1961 to 2010. The prevalence of bovine tuberculosis (BT) was higher when the tests were performed with either heat-concentration synthetic medium (HCSM) or purified protein derivative (PPD) tuberculin alone compared to the combination of HCSM/PPD tuberculin (P < 0.05). Although the current EEPBT strategies have successfully reduced the spread and threat of BT to livestock and humans, continuous surveillance is necessary to overcome the disease.
