The Independent Scientific Group on Cattle TB was appointed by the Government in 1998 to implement and develop the research recommendations of the 1997 Krebs report on bovine tuberculosis in cattle and badgers. In this article, members of the group discuss the approach they are adopting in attempting to ensure that future control strategies are scientifically based. In a second article, to be published in next week's Veterinary Record, the group will consider the extent to which efforts to control the disease in cattle may be constrained by limitations in current testing procedures.
