The ork is proposed by National Scientific Center «Institute of Experimental and Clinical Veterinary Medicine».

The aim of the work – to develop and implement a comlex system of large-scale veterinary and zootechnical measures on prevention and rehabilitation of livestock of Ukraine against bovine leucosis based on the results of basic and applied research.

The results of scientific research and its implement to production that took place during 1966-2014 are presented.

The authors, one of the first in the world, based on analytical data on the dynamics of the spread of bovine leucosis in Ukraine and other countries, and results of personal experimental research proved contagious nature of the disease. It has been found and characterized the source of the pathogen, its transmission factors and driving forces of epizootic process at bovine leucosis. It was received new and diverse data on etiopathogenetical features of infection at bovine leucosis and established the stage of its development.

It was developed, and subsequently improved, manufacturing technology of leucosis virus antigen for specific diagnosis of the disease in the early stages of its development, which was introduced in biotechnological production for the first time in Ukraine. Import-substituting kit for diagnosis of the disease in immunodiffusion test created on its base widely used in diagnostic laboratories of veterinary medicine of Ukraine, and exported to CIS countries. The numbers of instructional and methodical materials on conducting anti-leucosis health measures are created.

Based on the fundamental knowledge and practical scientific research it was gradually introduced a modern science-based system of veterinary and zootechnical measures of prevention and rehabilitation of livestock against bovine leucosis. Its implementation is allowed to improve practically livestock of Ukraine against disease (in 2014 remain  2 disadvantaged households on disease). Estimated economic impact of the introduction of the developed system is 13,8 UAH for one UAH of expenditure.

The results of the work are highlighted in nine books, textbooks and bibliographic references.
