Research published May 2011 in the journal Science shows that scientists have uncovered a window of opportunity when it is possible to identify cattle infected with foot--and--mouth disease virus (FMDV) before they become infectious and/or show signs of having the disease.

Researchers at the Institute for Animal Health (IAH), which receives strategic funding from BBSRC, along with colleagues at Defra (the UK Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs) are now assessing if this window of opportunity can be exploited to reduce the number of animals that are culled during an outbreak.
