Bovine leukemia virus (BLV) is a retrovirus closely related to the human T-lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1). BLV is a major animal health problem worldwide causing important economic losses. A series of attempts were developed to reduce prevalence, chiefly by eradication of infected cattle, segregation of BLV-free animals and vaccination. Although having been instrumental in regions such as the EU, these strategies were unsuccessful elsewhere mainly due to economic costs, management restrictions and lack of an efficient vaccine. This review, which summarizes the different attempts previously developed to decrease seroprevalence of BLV, may be informative for management of HTLV-1 infection. We also propose a new approach based on competitive infection with virus deletants aiming at reducing proviral loads. [less ▲]

For several years now, the Walloon Region has been supporting a project to help and follow farmers through their diversification activities: la Cellule Qualité Produits Fermiers (CQPF). Among their partners, the Process and Quality Engineering Laboratory in the Department of Food Technology of the Agricultural University of Gembloux is in charge of the hygienic supervision, ensuring the implementation of self-evaluation systems based on the HACCP principles and good hygiene practice guidelines. For four years, the CQPF has been following almost a hundred Walloon cheesemaking artisans using raw milk from cow, goat and ewe. According to the Commission Regulation (EC) No 2073/2005 on microbiological criteria for foodstuffs, analyses of microbiological pathogens have to be performed regularly to guarantee healthy and hazard free raw milk products. The results of microbiological analyses from raw milk cheeses of our artisans between January 2007 and June 2010 are presented below. We were interested on showing firstly, if the quality of the Walloon cheeses follow the standards of food safety criteria established by the European regulation, and secondly, if there is a trend for pathogen contamination throughout the year.
