Sometimes it leads to early culling. This disease costs India nearly Rs 11000 crores per year. Mastacure™, a combination of 8 homeopathic remedies, was trailed in highly prestigious institutions in India such as the College of Veterinary Sciences, Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar, Haryana, and Indian Veterinary Research Institute, Izat Nagar, Barielly, Uttar Pradesh.
After random trial on 166 livestocks. Streptococcus agalactiae and Staphylococcus aureus were isolated from culture positive buffalo milk. Mastacure™ established 83.33% cure on day 5 till day 30 post-treatment. It was compared against antibiotics, a produce of Sarabhai Zydus. On day 10 and 20 post-treatment, bacteriological cure rates in Mastacure™ treated groups were found to be increased to 57.14 and 66.67 percent respectively whereas no change in bacteriological cure rates were observed in groups treated with antibiotics, when compared with day 5 post-treatment values. No side effects of Mastacure™ were observed. Using flowcytometry, milk from culture positive buffalo showed a significant increase in BoCD4+, BoCD8+ and also BoWC1 T cells and upgradation remained significant till day 20 post-treatment with Mastacure™.
