Performance of competitive and indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays, gel immunoprecipitation with native hapten polysaccharide, and standard serological tests in diagnosis of sheep brucellosis. (1/1093)

Competitive and standard enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs), rose bengal (RB), complement fixation, and agar gel immunoprecipitation with native hapten (AGID-NH) were compared by using sera from Brucella-free, Brucella melitensis-infected, and B. melitensis Rev1-vaccinated sheep. The most sensitive tests were indirect ELISA and RB, and the most specific tests were AGID-NH and competitive ELISA. We show that RB followed by AGID-NH is a simple and effective system for diagnosing sheep brucellosis.  (+info)

Modulation of endocytosis in nuclear factor IL-6(-/-) macrophages is responsible for a high susceptibility to intracellular bacterial infection. (2/1093)

Activated macrophages kill bacteria, a function known to depend on the expression of NF-IL-6. Here, it is demonstrated that the attenuated Brucella abortus vaccine strain 19 replicates much better in NF-IL-6-/- than in NF-IL-6(+/+) and NF-IL-6(+/+)-activated murine macrophages and at levels comparable to those observed in normal macrophages infected with the pathogenic strain 2308. The role of NF-IL-6 in the inhibition of intracellular bacterial replication is related to its control of endocytosis and membrane fusion between endosomes and Brucella-containing phagosomes. Addition of the granulocyte-CSF (G-CSF), whose induction is impaired in NF-IL-6(-/-) macrophages, restores both endocytosis and the morphology of endosomes, together with bactericidal activity. Regulation of membrane traffic in endocytosis by G-CSF whose expression is controlled by NF-IL-6 may explain how a host cell can control intracellular bacterial replication.  (+info)

Genomic fingerprinting and development of a dendrogram for Brucella spp. isolated from seals, porpoises, and dolphins. (3/1093)

Genomic DNA from reference strains and biovars of the genus Brucella was analyzed using pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE). Fingerprints were compared to estimate genetic relatedness among the strains and to obtain information on evolutionary relationships. Electrophoresis of DNA digested with the restriction endonuclease XbaI produced fragment profiles for the reference type strains that distinguished these strains to the level of species. Included in this study were strains isolated from marine mammals. The PFGE profiles from these strains were compared with those obtained from the reference strains and biovars. Isolates from dolphins had similar profiles that were distinct from profiles of Brucella isolates from seals and porpoises. Distance matrix analyses were used to produce a dendrogram. Biovars of B. abortus were clustered together in the dendrogram; similar clusters were shown for biovars of B. melitensis and for biovars of B. suis. Brucella ovis, B. canis, and B. neotomae differed from each other and from B. abortus, B. melitensis, and B. suis. The relationship between B. abortus strain RB51 and other Brucella biovars was compared because this strain has replaced B. abortus strain 19 for use as a live vaccine in cattle and possibly in bison and elk. These results support the current taxonomy of Brucella species and the designation of an additional genomic group(s) of Brucella. The PFGE analysis in conjunction with distance matrix analysis was a useful tool for calculating genetic relatedness among the Brucella species.  (+info)

Immunity to Brucella in mice vaccinated with a fraction (F8) or a killed vaccine (H38) with or without adjuvant. Level and duration of immunity in relation to dose of vaccine, recall injection and age of mice. (4/1093)

Immunity to Brucella in the mouse, assessed by bacterial spleen counts 15 days after intraperitoneal inoculation of a standard challenge of B. abortus 544, has been studied with two vaccines, one experimental, composed of a fraction of the bacterial cell-wall (F8) extracted from B. abortus 99, the other of killed whole bacteria, B. melitensis 53 H38, taken as reference (H38). The level of primary immunity depended on the dose of vaccine, the presence of oil adjuvant and the age of the mouse. The presence of adjuvant enabled the immunization to F8 to continue beyond the first month, to reach its maximum around the fourth month, and to remain stable for at least 7 months. A booster injection 3 or 6 months after the primary vaccination reinforced existing immunity but did not increase it beyond a certain level. The effect of the recall injection was clearly demonstrated with low doses which gave a lower level of primary immunity.  (+info)

Plaque-forming cells in mice after experimental infection with Brucella abortus. (5/1093)

Cells producing antibody to brucella lipopolysaccharide were detected in spleens of mice infected with Brucella abortus 19 by a hemolytic plaque assay. The appearance of immunoglobulin M-producing cells preceded humoral antibodies. The primary plaques were observed 5 days after inoculation, and they were still present by day 70.  (+info)

Effect of early antibiotic treatment on the antibody response to cytoplasmic proteins of Brucella melitensis in mice. (6/1093)

To test whether antibiotic therapy hampers the antibody response to Brucella antigens, 30 BALB/c mice were infected with Brucella melitensis H38 and randomized for treatment with doxycycline administered intraperitoneally for 42 days starting at 7 or 28 days postinfection (p.i.) (groups DOX7 and DOX28, respectively) or for no treatment (control group). Antibodies to smooth lipopolysaccharide (LPS) reached peak levels (mean optical density [OD] = 2.618) between days 56 and 70 p.i. in the control group, and similar peak levels (mean OD = 2.486) were observed in the DOX28 group, but significantly lower peak levels (mean OD = 0.821) were observed at 28 days p.i. in the DOX7 group. The antibody response against cytoplasmic proteins depleted of LPS (CPs) reached maximal levels (mean OD = 2.402) between days 56 and 70 p.i. in the control group, but no response was detected in the DOX7 group. Anti-CP antibodies were detected in only three animals from the DOX28 group, at levels significantly lower than those in the control group (mean maximal OD = 0.791). The pattern of antibody response to an 18-kDa cytoplasmic protein of Brucella spp. was similar to that against the CP antigen. This study shows that early antibiotic treatment affects the antibody response of mice to cytoplasmic proteins of Brucella and, to a lesser extent, to LPS.  (+info)

The siderophore 2,3-dihydroxybenzoic acid is not required for virulence of Brucella abortus in BALB/c mice. (7/1093)

2,3-Dihydroxybenzoic acid (DHBA) is the only siderophore described for Brucella, and previous studies suggested that DHBA might contribute to the capacity of these organisms to persist in host macrophages. Employing an isogenic siderophore mutant (DeltaentC) constructed from virulent Brucella abortus 2308, however, we found that production of DHBA is not required for replication in cultured murine macrophages or for the establishment and maintenance of chronic infection in the BALB/c mouse model.  (+info)

Destructive aortic valve endocarditis from Brucella abortus: survival with emergency aortic valve replacement. (8/1093)

Brucella abortus infection of the aortic valve caused acute aortic regurgitation leading to severe left ventricular failure in a 62-year-old man. He made an excellent recovery after emergency aortic valve replacement. This is the third reported case of successful heart valve replacement for Brucella endocarditis and the second such case involving the aortic valve.  (+info)

*Urinary tract infection

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection that affects part of the urinary tract.[1] When it affects the lower urinary tract it is known as a bladder infection (cystitis) and when it affects the upper urinary tract it is known as a kidney infection (pyelonephritis).[9] Symptoms from a lower urinary tract infection include pain with urination, frequent urination, and feeling the need to urinate despite having an empty bladder.[1] Symptoms of a kidney infection include fever and flank pain usually in addition to the symptoms of a lower UTI.[9] Rarely the urine may appear bloody.[6] In the very old and the very young, symptoms may be vague or non-specific.[1][10] The most common cause of infection is Escherichia coli, though other bacteria or fungi may rarely be the cause.[2] Risk factors include female anatomy, sexual intercourse, diabetes, obesity, and family history.[2] Although sexual intercourse is a risk factor, UTIs are not classified as sexually transmitted infections (STIs).[11] ...

*Cholera

The word cholera is from Greek: χολέρα kholera from χολή kholē "bile". Cholera likely has its origins in the Indian subcontinent as evidenced by its prevalence in the region for centuries.[13] Early outbreaks in the Indian subcontinent are believed to have been the result of poor living conditions as well as the presence of pools of still water, both of which provide ideal conditions for cholera to thrive.[71] The disease first spread by trade routes (land and sea) to Russia in 1817, later to the rest of Europe, and from Europe to North America and the rest of the world.[13] Seven cholera pandemics have occurred in the past 200 years, with the seventh pandemic originating in Indonesia in 1961.[72] The first cholera pandemic occurred in the Bengal region of India, near Calcutta starting in 1817 through 1824. The disease dispersed from India to Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and Eastern Africa.[73] The movement of British Army and Navy ships and personnel is believed to have ...

*Traveler's diarrhea

... (TD) is a stomach and intestinal infection. TD is defined as the passage of unformed stool (one or more by some definitions, three or more by others) while traveling.[2][3] It may be accompanied by abdominal cramps, nausea, fever, and bloating.[3] Occasionally bloody diarrhea may occur.[5] Most travelers recover within four days with little or no treatment.[3] About 10% of people may have symptoms for a week.[3] Bacteria are responsible for more than half of cases.[3] The bacteria enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) are typically the most common except in Southeast Asia, where Campylobacter is more prominent.[2][3] About 10% to 20% of cases are due to norovirus.[3] Protozoa such as Giardia may cause longer term disease.[3] The risk is greatest in the first two weeks of travel and among young adults.[2] People affected are more often from the developed world.[2] Recommendations for prevention include eating only properly cleaned and cooked food, drinking bottled water, and ...

*Meningococcal disease

Protective levels of anticapsular antibodies are not achieved until 7-14 days following administration of a meningococcal vaccine, vaccination cannot prevent early onset disease in these contacts and usually is not recommended following sporadic cases of invasive meningococcal disease. Unlike developed countries, in sub-Saharan Africa and other under developed countries, entire families live in a single room of a house.[21][22] Meningococcal infection is usually introduced into a household by an asymptomatic person. Carriage then spreads through the household, reaching infants usually after one or more other household members have been infected. Disease is most likely to occur in infants and young children who lack immunity to the strain of organism circulating and who subsequently acquire carriage of an invasive strain.[23] By preventing susceptible contacts from acquiring infection by directly inhibiting colonization. Close contacts are defined as those persons who could have had intimate ...

*Enterobacteriaceae

... is a large family of Gram-negative bacteria. It was first proposed by Rahn in 1936, and now includes over 30 genera and more than 100 species. Its classification above the level of family is still a subject of debate, but one classification places it in the order Enterobacterales of the class Gammaproteobacteria in the phylum Proteobacteria.[2][3][4][5] Enterobacteriaceae includes, along with many harmless symbionts, many of the more familiar pathogens, such as Salmonella, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella, and Shigella. Other disease-causing bacteria in this family include Enterobacter and Citrobacter. Members of the Enterobacteriaceae can be trivially referred to as enterobacteria or "enteric bacteria",[6] as several members live in the intestines of animals. In fact, the etymology of the family is enterobacterium with the suffix to designate a family (aceae)-not after the genus Enterobacter (which would be "Enterobacteraceae")-and the type genus is Escherichia. ...

*Betaproteobacteria

... are a class of gram-negative bacteria, and one of the eight classes of the phylum Proteobacteria.[1] The Betaproteobacteria are a class comprising over 75 genera and 400 species of bacteria.[2] Together, the Betaproteobacteria represent a broad variety of metabolic strategies and occupy diverse environments from obligate pathogens living within host organisms to oligotrophic groundwater ecosystems. Whilst most members of the Betaproteobacteria are heterotrophic, deriving both their carbon and electrons from organocarbon sources, some are photoheterotrophic, deriving energy from light and carbon from organocarbon sources. Other genera are autotrophic, deriving their carbon from bicarbonate or carbon dioxide and their electrons from reduced inorganic ions such as nitrite, ammonium, thiosulfate or sulfide [1] - many of these chemolithoautotrophic Betaproteobacteria are economically important, with roles in maintaining soil pH and in elementary cycling. Other economically ...

*Klebsiella aerogenes

... [1], previously known as Enterobacter aerogenes, is a Gram-negative, oxidase negative, catalase positive, citrate positive, indole negative, rod-shaped bacterium.[2] The bacterium is approximately 1-3 microns in length, and is capable of motility via peritrichous flagella.[3] K. aerogenes is a nosocomial and pathogenic bacterium that causes opportunistic infections including most types of infections. The majority are sensitive to most antibiotics designed for this bacteria class, but this is complicated by their inducible resistance mechanisms, particularly lactamase, which means that they quickly become resistant to standard antibiotics during treatment, requiring a change in antibiotic to avoid worsening of the sepsis. Some of the infections caused by K. aerogenes result from specific antibiotic treatments, venous catheter insertions, and/or surgical procedures. K. aerogenes is generally found in the human gastrointestinal tract and does not generally cause disease in ...

*Typhoid fever

... , also known simply as typhoid, is a bacterial infection due to Salmonella typhi that causes symptoms.[3] Symptoms may vary from mild to severe and usually begin six to thirty days after exposure.[1][2] Often there is a gradual onset of a high fever over several days.[1] Weakness, abdominal pain, constipation, and headaches also commonly occur.[2][6] Diarrhea is uncommon and vomiting is not usually severe.[6] Some people develop a skin rash with rose colored spots.[2] In severe cases there may be confusion.[6] Without treatment, symptoms may last weeks or months.[2] Other people may carry the bacterium without being affected; however, they are still able to spread the disease to others.[4] Typhoid fever is a type of enteric fever along with paratyphoid fever.[3]. The cause is the bacterium Salmonella typhi, also known as Salmonella enterica serotype Typhi, growing in the intestines and blood.[2][6] Typhoid is spread by eating or drinking food or water contaminated with the feces of ...

*Gonorrhea

Traditionally, gonorrhea was diagnosed with Gram stain and culture; however, newer polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based testing methods are becoming more common.[16][28] In those failing initial treatment, culture should be done to determine sensitivity to antibiotics.[29] Tests that use polymerase chain reaction (PCR, aka nucleic acid amplification) to identify genes unique to N. gonorrhoeae are recommended for screening and diagnosis of gonorrhea infection. These PCR-based tests require a sample of urine, urethral swabs, or cervical/vaginal swabs. Culture (growing colonies of bacteria in order to isolate and identify them) and Gram-stain (staining of bacterial cell walls to reveal morphology) can also be used to detect the presence of N. gonorrhoeae in all specimen types except urine.[30][31] If Gram-negative, oxidase-positive diplococci are visualized on direct Gram stain of urethral pus (male genital infection), no further testing is needed to establish the diagnosis of gonorrhea ...

*Neisseria meningitidis

With a fatality risk approaching 15% within 12 hours of infection, it is crucial to initiate testing as quickly as possible, but not to wait for the results before initiating antibiotic therapy. A small amount of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is sent to the laboratory as soon as possible for analysis. The diagnosis is suspected, when Gram-negative diplococci are seen on Gram stain of a centrifuged sample of CSF; sometimes they are located inside white blood cells. The microscopic identification takes around 1-2 hours after specimen arrival in the laboratory.[3] The gold standard of diagnosis is microbiological isolation of N. meningitidis by growth from a sterile body fluid, which could be CSF or blood.[5] Diagnosis is confirmed when the organism has grown, most often on a chocolate agar plate, but also on Thayer-Martin agar. To differentiate any bacterial growth from other species a small amount of a bacterial colony is tested for oxidase, catalase for which all clinically relevant Neisseria show a ...

*Plague (disease)

Plague has a long history as a biological weapon. Historical accounts from ancient China and medieval Europe detail the use of infected animal carcasses, such as cows or horses, and human carcasses, by the Xiongnu/Huns, Mongols, Turks and other groups, to contaminate enemy water supplies. Han Dynasty General Huo Qubing is recorded to have died of such a contamination while engaging in warfare against the Xiongnu. Plague victims were also reported to have been tossed by catapult into cities under siege. In 1347, the Genoese possession of Caffa, a great trade emporium on the Crimean peninsula, came under siege by an army of Mongol warriors of the Golden Horde under the command of Janibeg. After a protracted siege during which the Mongol army was reportedly withering from the disease, they decided to use the infected corpses as a biological weapon. The corpses were catapulted over the city walls, infecting the inhabitants. This event might have led to the transfer of the plague (Black Death) via ...

*Paratyphoid fever

... , also known simply as paratyphoid, is a bacterial infection caused by one of the three types of Salmonella enterica.[1] Symptoms usually begin 6-30 days after exposure and are the same as those of typhoid fever.[1][3] Often, a gradual onset of a high fever occurs over several days.[1] Weakness, loss of appetite, and headaches also commonly occur.[1] Some people develop a skin rash with rose-colored spots.[2] Without treatment, symptoms may last weeks or months.[1] Other people may carry the bacteria without being affected; however, they are still able to spread the disease to others.[3] Both typhoid and paratyphoid are of similar severity.[3] Paratyphoid and typhoid fever are types of enteric fever.[7] Paratyphoid is caused by the bacterium Salmonella enterica of the serotypes Paratyphi A, Paratyphi B, or Paratyphi C growing in the intestines and blood.[1] They are usually spread by eating or drinking food or water contaminated with the feces of an infected person.[1] They may ...

What is brucellosis? Brucellosis is an infectious disease caused by the bacteria of the genus Brucella. These bacteria are primarily passed among animals, and they cause disease in many different vertebrates. Various Brucella species affect sheep, goats, cattle, deer, elk, pigs, dogs, and several other animals. Humans become infected by coming in contact with animals or animal products that are contaminated with these bacteria. In humans brucellosis can cause a range of symptoms that are similar to the flu and may include fever, sweats, headaches, back pains, and physical weakness. Severe infections of the central nervous systems or lining of the heart may occur. Brucellosis can also cause long-lasting or chronic symptoms that include recurrent fevers, joint pain, and fatigue.. Back to Top How common is brucellosis? Brucellosis is not very common in the United States, where100 to 200 cases occur each year. But brucellosis can be very common in countries where animal disease control programs have ...
Brucellosis is one of the most widespread zoonosis in the world. In China, 90% of human brucellosis occurs in six northern agricultural provinces. However, there is a recent increase in the trend of human brucellosis in southern provinces with limited cases reported in the literature. Our study aims to describe the clinical features and epidemiology of brucellosis in a tertiary hospital in southern China. A retrospective case series of brucellosis was conducted between January 1, 2014 and October 31. 2018. Cases were identified based on positive Brucella serology by tube agglutination test, or positive culture from clinical specimen identified by Vitek 2 and MALDL-TOF MS. Clinical details of brucellosis including patients occupation, risk factors, and complications were analyzed. Clinical characteristics between patients from Guangdong and other provinces were also compared. A total of 13 cases of laboratory-confirmed brucellosis were identified. 7 (53.8%) of the patients were male, 6 (46.2%) were
Introduction. Brucellosis is one of the most common zoonotic diseases in the world. The geographical distribution of brucellosis constantly changes as new foci emerge or re-emerge. The disease occurs worldwide in both animals and humans, except in those countries where bovine brucellosis has been eradicated. The worldwide economic losses due to brucellosis are extensive, not only in terms of animal production but also in terms of human health. However, when the incidence of brucellosis is controlled in the animal reservoirs, there is a corresponding and significant decline in the incidence in humans (Seleem, Boyle & Sriranganathan 2010). In Eritrea, brucellosis is an important disease in both animals and humans; most human cases appear to be related to the consumption of unpasteurised milk (Kebedom et al. 2008). Literature shows that there have been some seroprevalence studies carried out in domestic animals (Omer et al. 2000a, 2000b) and humans (Omer et al. 2002). However, they were limited ...
Martinez said there have been five confirmed cases to date; however, he expects that number to climb.. Those infected are over the age of 20. The outbreak is linked to contaminated cheese.. Brucellosis is a contagious disease of animals that also affects humans. The disease is also known as Bangs Disease. In humans, its known as Undulant Fever.. Brucellosis is one of the most serious diseases of livestock, considering the damage done by the infection in animals. Decreased milk production, weight loss, loss of young, infertility, and lameness are some of the affects on animals.. The Brucella species are named for their primary hosts: Brucella melitensis is found mostly is goats, sheep and camels, B. abortus is a pathogen of cattle, B. suis is found primarily in swine and B. canis is found in dogs.. There are two common ways people get infected with brucellosis. First, individuals that work with infected animals that have not been vaccinated against brucellosis. This would include farmers, ...
Symptomatic seropositive family members were treated, whereas asymptomatic seropositive family members were followed-up with no treatment unless they showed symptoms and an increase in STA titers. Of eight family members followed, two were diagnosed with acute brucellosis.. Discussion. Turkey has seven geographical regions and is an important migration route between Europe and Asia. There are significant differences between regions, in terms of geographical features and economic and social development. Due to the geographic situation, Turkey is a risk factor for many infectious diseases, such as brucellosis.11 A total of 189,226 cases of human brucellosis were officially reported between 2000 and 2005, of which approximately 90,000 were registered (approximately 15,000 cases per year) in Turkey. The highest seroprevalence was observed in the eastern and southeastern regions of the country.12 Despite being endemic in Turkey, brucellosis remains underdiagnosed due to its non-specific clinical ...
The roles of humoral and cell mediated immune responses in murine brucellosis were investigated in this study.B. abortus strain 19, the current vaccine strain, is known to induce an antibody as well as cell mediated immune responses, both of which protect mice against smooth strain 2308. B. abortus rough strain RB51 does not induce an o-side chain specific antibody response and yet protects mice against smooth strain 2308. Passive transfer experiments using serum and nylon wool enriched T cells obtained from micevaccinated with strain 19 and strain RB51 were carried out. Immune senum from strain 19 vaccinated mice protected against challenge with strain 2308 but not strain RB51. Nylon wool enriched T cells from strain 19 vaccinated mice protected recipient mice against challenge with both strains RB51 or 2308. Serum obtained from RB51 vaccinated mice did not protect recipient mice against challenge with either strain RB51 or strain 2308. Nylon wool enriched T cells from the same vaccinated mice, ...
Brucellosis is a serious public health issue in India. Estimation of economic losses occurring due to brucellosis is required to help formulate prevention and control strategies, but has not been done in India. We estimated economic losses due to brucellosis by sourcing prevalence data from epidemiological surveys conducted in India. Data for livestock populations were obtained from official records. Probability distributions were used for many of the input parameters to account for uncertainty and variability. The analysis revealed that brucellosis in livestock is responsible for a median loss of US $ 3.4 billion (5th-95th percentile 2.8-4.2 billion). The disease in cattle and buffalo accounted for 95.6% of the total losses occurring due to brucellosis in livestock populations. The disease is responsible for a loss of US$ 6.8 per cattle, US$18.2 per buffalo, US$ 0.7 per sheep, US$ 0.5 per goat and US$ 0.6 per pig. These losses are additional to the economic and social consequences of the ...
Aim: We determined the antibody response in cattle naturally infected with brucellosis and normal healthy adult cattle vaccinated during calf hood with strain 19.. Materials and Methods: The antibody titers were measured by standard tube agglutination test (STAT), microtiter plate agglutination test (MAT), indirect hemagglutination assay (IHA), and indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (iELISA) as per standard protocols.. Results: The mean STAT titers were 1.963 0.345 in infected cattle and 1.200 0.155 in healthy vaccinated cattle. The difference was extremely significant (p,0.0001). The mean MAT titers were 2.244 0.727 in infected cattle and 1.200 0.155 in healthy vaccinated cattle. The difference was very significant (p,0.005). The mean IHA titers in infected cattle were 2.284 0.574, and those in healthy vaccinated cattle were 1.200 0.155. The difference was extremely significant (p=0.0002). However, the difference in mean iELISA titers of infected cattle (1.3678 0.014) and healthy ...
Global dogchannel.com: by Debra M. Eldredge, DVM - Brucellosis is a disease bandied about casually by many dog fanciers. Breeders recommend that all bitches have a negative Brucellosis test before any breedings, but often skimp on testing the stud dogs. It seems like such a routine problem. In reality, a diagnosis of brucellosis can be…
PANAMA – National Animal Health Officials are baffled as to the source of a Brucellosis outbreak centred on the western half of the country’s capital.
Brucellosis generally presents with fever, malaise, weight loss and bone pain with either an abrupt or insidious onset. A 76-year-old man presented in April 2010 with fever of 103°F, severe tachycardia, tachypnoea and a blood pressure of 80/50 mm Hg requiring fluids and vasopressor support with norepinephrine. The patient had brucellosis in 1956 which was treated for many weeks with tetracycline and streptomycin. He has had no recurrences since that time. He denies recent travel outside the USA or consumption of raw dairy products. Blood cultures grew Brucella melitensis. He was treated with gentamycin, doxycycline and rifampin for 1 week and discharged home on doxycycline and rifampin. He relapsed after 2 days, requiring re-admission and a 4-week course of gentamycin. This case is most unusual in that the brucellosis presented with septic shock after a 50-year quiescence and required prolonged therapy with gentamycin to induce remission. ...
Brucellosis is a disease that can be prevented through vaccination. Yet, the effectiveness of the vaccination to fight this disease is considered weak. Fortunately, attempts to modify brucellosis vaccine is still keep going. Some brucellosis vaccines have been found and developed in the past time such as the vaccine B.abortus strain 19-BA and 104M which was made from weakened microbes which had been widely used in Uni Soviet and China. The other brucellosis vaccine that were used in the past were the phenolinsoluble peptidoglycan vaccine which was made in France and polysaccharide-protein vaccine which was used in Russia. This research attempted to see the determinant of antigenic Outer Membrane Protein (OM) 36 kDa Brucella abortus local isolation which has immunogenic character to be developed as an advanced brucellosis vaccine. The method used in this research was the Omp2 gene of Brucella abortus of local isolate employed the PCR technique. The result of the PCR was then sequenced to analyze ...

A: B. canis is a sexually transmitted disease in dogs. Dogs become infected through exposure to secretions during mating or by contact with infected tissues during birth or following abortion. In addition, dogs may spread bacteria in urine, saliva, nasal and ocular secretions, and feces. Infection with B. suis can occur in dogs in contact with feral hogs (e.g. hunting dogs) following exposure to blood, urine, saliva or other tissues. Exposure to B. abortus may occur if dogs have contact with aborted tissues of infected cattle or bison. Most domestic cattle herds in the US (including those in Georgia) are now free of Brucellosis making this routine exposure very unlikely. Brucellosis is still present in cattle in Texas, Wyoming and Idaho. MOST OFTEN, IN THE CANINE COMMUNITY, THIS IS A SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASE ...
Introduction: : Due to the importance of Rifampin on Tuberculosis treatment and the high prevalence of brucellosis and tuberculosis in Iran, it is necessary to replace Rifampin in brucellosis treatment with other drugs that are better tolerated and have fewer side effects.

Description of Brucellosis, what is is, how it is transmitted, which countries have Brucellosis and what can you do to prevent it
Brucellosis is a worldwide zoonotic disease transmitted to humans by consumption of contaminated milk and milk products. Brucellosis is endemic in Turkey, and Edirne has a high Brucella prevalence. Brucellosis is prevented by live-attenuated vaccines for animals and the vaccination program has been in place since 1984 in Turkey. Thrace is the pilot region for this vaccination program. The gold standard diagnostic technique for brucellosis is still the isolation of suspicious bacterial colonies followed by bacteriological identification, but it is very time consuming and laborious. In many studies, Brucella has been investigated by PCR techniques. However, PCR-based methods cannot differentiate between the vaccine strain and the virulent strain; thus, the vaccine strain may interfere with the virulent strain and causes false-positive reactions. To monitor brucellosis control programs effectively, it is important to distinguish vaccine and field strains of Brucella spp. In this study, raw milk ...
Presented by Steven Olsen at a workshop on an integrated approach to controlling brucellosis in Africa, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 29-31 January 2013.
The diagnosis of human being neurobrucellosis depends on the recognition of antibodies to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in cerebrospinal liquid (CSF) by agglutination testing or enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). within CSF examples from 14 and 20 individuals experiencing nonbrucellar meningitis and non-infectious illnesses, respectively. These results suggest that, furthermore to its effectiveness in the serological analysis of human being systemic brucellosis, the ELISA with CP antigen could be used for the precise diagnosis of human being neurobrucellosis. Brucellosis continues to be a common human being zoonotic disease, in developing countries especially. Neurological participation from the central anxious system (CNS) continues to be recognized in 3 to 5% from the individuals with brucellosis, in both presence and lack of systemic disease SYN-115 (10, 13). Meningitis may be the most experienced medical condition in individuals with neurobrucellosis regularly, and it happens after ...

There is no human vaccine to protect you against brucellosis, so its important to take precautions to prevent infection if youre at risk.. If youre travelling to an area where brucellosis is a problem, dont consume unpasteurised milk or milk products, and only eat meat that has been thoroughly cooked.. Cheese and other milk products imported illegally from countries where brucellosis is common may not have been pasteurised. Cases have occurred in the UK as a result of eating such products.. If you work closely with animals that could be infected, make sure you wear adequate protective clothing. This might include gloves, an apron, goggles, and a mask that covers your nose and mouth.. Make sure that any wounds you have are cleaned and covered with a suitable dressing or bandage before dealing with animals, and make sure to clean your skin thoroughly afterwards with water, soap and a disinfectant.. ...
Brucellosis is a common bacterial zoonotic infection but data on the prevalence among humans and animals is limited in Kenya. A cross-sectional survey was conducted in three counties practicing different livestock production systems to simultaneously assess the seroprevalence of, and risk factors for brucellosis among humans and their livestock (cattle, sheep, camels, and goats). A two-stage cluster sampling method with random selection of sublocations and households was conducted. Blood samples were collected from humans and animals and tested for Brucella immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies. Human and animal individual seroprevalence was 16% and 8%, respectively. Household and herd seroprevalence ranged from 5% to 73% and 6% to 68%, respectively. There was a 6-fold odds of human seropositivity in households with a seropositive animal compared with those without. Risk factors for human seropositivity included regular ingestion of raw milk (adjusted odds ratio [aOR] = 3.5, 95% confidence interval ...
Among animals, brucellosis is transmitted directly (contact with placenta, aborted fetus, the liquor , vaginal and/or uterus secretion) or indirectly (if infected and non-infected health herds mix while grazing or by contact with environment in which the bacteria can be found such as manure, pastures, water, etc). Most infected male animals continue to secrete Brucella via semen for the lifetime. Presence of infectious agents in udder and surrounding lymph nodes results in permanent or occasional secretion of Brucella via milk and as such it is a serious source of infection for young animals which can also be infected via uterus. In infected lambs and young goats, Brucella inhabits lymph nods of bowls and can be secreted out of their body via droppings. Infected young cattle develop the disease once they reached sexual maturity. Sheppard dogs can also spread brucellosis between ruminants but they can also get ill as well. In high humidly, low temperature and unsunny weather conditions, Brucella ...
Toxoplasmosis, leptospirosis, and brucellosis are global zoonoses, with humans as accidental participants in their transmission cycles. The can also be considered occupational diseases, because certain professionals are at greater risk of contact and infection by such zoonoses. These three diseases have different epidemiological characteristics because of the distinct environmental, social, cultural, and economic conditions where these pathogens circulate. Because of the importance of these diseases and their associations with specific occupations, we performed a seroepidemiological survey of Toxoplasma, Leptospira, and Brucella antibodies, with an analysis of the association between positive serum and certain occupational and environmental variables, in students of a veterinary medicine course (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th year) in a university in the northwestern region in the state of Parana, Brazil. From May to November 2014, blood samples were collected from 157 volunteers by professionals ...

Sunlight makes a vicious strain of bacteria even more dangerous, a new study has found. A team of researchers, including Stanford scientists, has discovered that certain single-celled infectious bacteria can tell the difference between light and dark, and actually increase their infectiousness 10-fold when hit by sunlight. This is the first time light has been shown to change the course of a bacterial disease. And these particular bacteria are probably not alone: As many as one-third of other bacterial species may react to light by producing physiological or chemical changes. The study was published in the Aug. 24 issue of Science. Brucella, the bacteria that cause the infectious disease brucellosis, and more than 100 other kinds of bacteria contain proteins originally thought to be functional only in plants, according to Winslow Briggs, one of the researchers and director emeritus of the Carnegie Institution Department of Plant Biology. "Many of these bacteria have been pretty well studied, but ...

BILLINGS - Wildlife biologists captured 94 elk in south central Montana in January to test for brucellosis and better understand how elk and the disease move in the region. Biologists also tested blood samples from three elk that were harvested by hunters in the same region.. The capture and testing are part of a multi-year collaboration between Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks and the Montana Department of Livestock to learn more about elk movement and the extent of brucellosis infection in elk across parts of southwest and south central Montana.. In an area of Montana within a mile of the Wyoming border north of Clark, Wyo., Montana FWP biologists found that six of 16 captured antlerless elk had been exposed to brucellosis. These elk were captured on U.S. Forest Service land in Montana where there are no cattle allotments.. Test showed that all other elk captured and tested Jan. 19-25 along the Beartooth Front, between Red Lodge and Big Timber, had not been exposed to brucellosis.. All 94 elk ...
We report two laboratory-acquired Brucella melitensis infections that were shown to be epidemiologically related. Blood culture isolates were initially misidentified because of variable Gram stain results, which led to misdiagnoses and subsequent laboratory exposures. Notifying laboratory personnel who unknowingly processed cultures from brucellosis patients is an important preventive measure.
1. Chronic infections may have negative impacts on wildlife populations, yet their effects are difficult to detect in the absence of long-term population monitoring. Brucella abortus, the bacteria responsible for bovine brucellosis, causes chronic infections and abortions in wild and domestic ungulates, but its impact on population dynamics is not well understood. 2. We report infection patterns and fitness correlates of bovine brucellosis in African buffalo based on (1) 7 years of cross-sectional disease surveys and (2) a 4-year longitudinal study in Kruger National Park (KNP), South Africa. We then used a matrix population model to translate these observed patterns into predicted population-level effects. 3. Annual brucellosis seroprevalence ranged from 8·7% (95% CI = 1·8-15·6) to 47·6% (95% CI = 35·1-60·1) increased with age until adulthood (,6) and varied by location within KNP. Animals were on average in worse condition after testing positive for brucellosis (F = −5·074, P , ...
We present a rare case of brucella endocarditis, forming a vegetation on the mitral valve. The definitive diagnosis has been made with clinical suspicion, positive serology, the demonstration of the vegetation with the echocardiography and with the production from the multiple blood culture of brucella melitensis and from the excised valve. Our patient has been successfully treated with specific antibiotherapy and the surgery of replacement of mitral valve. Our aim in presenting the case is to remind the infective endocarditis which is due to this factor in the regions like our country which is endemic for ...
Canine Brucellosis. By Admin. Canine Brucellosis is an infectious disease that is caused by a bacteria in dogs called Brucella Canis. It resides in a dogs reproductive organs. Brucellosis is one of the main causes of failure in dogs reproductive organs. It is a leading cause of late abortions which occur forty five to fifty five days of gestation It may be the cause of a bitch delivering stillborn puppies or puppies that sicken and die soon after birth. It can cause sterility in a male and female dog without causing obvious signs of the disease.. Dogs with active infectious bacteria may show enlargement of the lumpy nodes in the groin or below the jaw in association with febrile illness. Eye inflammation may be seen in both sexes. The dogs joints may become swollen and painful. The males testicles may swell up, then go on to atrophy as the sperm producing cells are destroyed. In some dogs, the disease goes unsuspected until there is evidence of reproductive failure. These dogs are in a ...
The status of brucellosis in Wyoming, producer requirements for transport or selling and liability, and reports on a new test for the disease are among topics at February meetings in Worland and Lovell. Members of the Governors Brucellosis Coordination Team will present the meetings.. The first meeting is Thursday, Feb. 15, during WESTI Ag Days in Worland, says Bruce Hoar, coordinator of brucellosis research at the University of Wyoming. WESTI Ag Days is Feb. 14-15 at the Worland Community Center, 1200 Culbertson Ave.. The team then meets at 10 a.m. Friday at the Lovell Community Center, 1925 U.S. Highway 310, he says. Lunch is available following the meeting.. Hoar will give a background on the disease to start the meetings, followed by producer responsibilities by a representative from the state veterinarians office. Researcher Brant Schumaker of the Wyoming State Veterinary Laboratory at UW will provide an update on current testing and progress of a new brucellosis test his team is ...
Sheep are considered the primary source of Brucella mellitensis, which is the most pathogenic Brucella sp. in humans and the predominant strain circulating in Middle East, including Egypt [22, 23]. Recent non-governmental studies indicate that brucellosis is highly endemic in ruminants in Egypt, though large discrepancies in seroprevalence exist between peer-reviewed published studies and those reported by the government [9, 12].. The seroprevalence of brucellosis in sheep in the study area was estimated at 20 % (95 % CI 15.3-24.7 %). Official Egyptian government figures nationwide for Brucella seroprevalence in sheep between 1999 and 2011 range from 0.5 to 2.5 % [15]. The seroprevalence in this study is slightly higher than that reported by Hegazy et al. [13]. This study agrees with Hegazy et al. [13] stating that brucellosis is endemic in Egypt with a high seroprevalence (around 15 %) despite the current national control programme. This may be due to poor availability of resources, a lack of ...

ABSTRACT. In this study, milk and blood samples collected simultaneously from 532 trade cows to be slaughtered at Bodija abattoir, Ibadan (southwestern, Nigeria) were examined for antibodies to Brucella using the milk ring test (MRT) and the rose bengal test (RBT). Overall, 18.61 % of the milk samples were positive according to the MRT, while 9.77 % of the serum samples were positive according to the RBT. The difference was highly significant (Chi-square value 16.33; P , 0.05); only 32 (6.02 %) of the samples were positive for both tests. The Red Bororo breed of cattle and the White Fulani had the highest positive rates, namely 20.93 % and 11.69 % for the MRT and RBT respectively. No conclusion can be drawn about sensitivity because we do not know the true status of the animals tested. It is, however, obvious that although the MRT and RBT are 1st-line screening tests for brucellosis in cows in some countries, their lack of specificity is of concern. Therefore, the requirement for other ...
We report on the paleopathological analysis of the partial skeleton of the late Pliocene hominin species Australopithecus africanus Stw 431 from Sterkfontein, South Africa. A previous study noted the presence of lesions on vertebral bodies diagnosed as spondylosis deformans due to trauma. Instead, we suggest that these lesions are pathological changes due to the initial phases of an infectious disease, brucellosis. The macroscopic, microscopic and radiological appearance of the lytic lesions of the lumbar vertebrae is consistent with brucellosis. The hypothesis of brucellosis (most often associated with the consumption of animal proteins) in a 2.4 to 2.8 million year old hominid has a host of important implications for human evolution. The consumption of meat has been regarded an important factor in supporting, directing or altering human evolution. Perhaps the earliest (up to 2.5 million years ago) paleontological evidence for meat eating consists of cut marks on animal remains and stone tools that
Brucella species, particularly B. melitensis and B. suis, are potential agents of biological terrorism (1,2). This report describes the public health and law enforcement assessment of a suspected case of brucellosis in a woman, in which the atypical clinical presentation and suspicious circumstances surrounding the case raised the possibility of biological terrorism. Although the investigation did not identify evidence of biological terrorism, the safe resolution of the case illustrates the value of integrated clinical, public health, and law enforcement biological terrorism preparedness and response. On March 25, 1999, a 38-year-old woman who resided in New Hampshire was admitted to hospital A in New Hampshire with fever, myalgia, and weakness, which progressed over 3 days to respiratory failure requiring mechanical ventilation. On day 22, after 3 weeks of intensive care, the patient was transferred to hospital B in Boston, Massachusetts. Paired serum specimens obtained on day 4 and day 22 ...
The genus Brucella contains highly infectious species that are classified as biological threat agents. The timely detection and identification of the microorganism involved is essential for an effective response not only to biological warfare attacks but also to natural outbreaks. Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF-MS) is a rapid method for the analysis of biological samples. The advantages of this method, compared to conventional techniques, are rapidity, cost-effectiveness, accuracy and suitability for the high-throughput identification of bacteria. Discrepancies between taxonomy and genetic relatedness on the species and biovar level complicate the development of detection and identification assays. In this study, the accurate identification of Brucella species using MALDI-TOF-MS was achieved by constructing a Brucella reference library based on multilocus variable-number tandem repeat analysis (MLVA) data. By comparing MS-spectra from Brucella
Brucellosis, Undulant fever, Mediterranean fever or Malta fever is different wards for one disease which is an infectious disease caused by a type of bacteria called Brucella , that are almost invariably transmitted by direct or indirect contact with infected animals or their products. Additionally, human brucellosis has a serious medical impact worldwide, which affects people of all age groups and of both sexes. The eradication poses major difficulties because this disease is largely under diagnosed and underreported. Furthermore, brucellosis in human beings is rarely fatal; it can be severely debilitating and disabling. A renewed scientific interest in human brucellosis has been fuelled by its recent re-emergence and enhanced surveillance in many areas of the world because of regarding the disease as a class B bioterrorist agent and remains the world?s most common bacterial zoonosis. A cross-sectional study was conducted in the period from March, 2013 to March, 2014 to estimate seroprevalence ...
A serological survey of Brucella abortus in cattle originating from communal grazing areas of Kwa Zulu Natal was carried out between March 2001 and December 2003. The survey was designed as a 2-stage survey, considering the diptank as the primary sampling unit. In total 46 025 animals from 446 diptanks of 33 magisterial districts were sampled and tested using the Rose Bengal test and Complement Fixation Test. The apparent prevalence at district level was adjusted for clustering, diagnostic test sensitivity and specificity, and mapped using ArcView version 3.3. The prevalence of brucellosis in communal grazing areas of Kwa-Zulu Natal was found to be 1.45 % (0.84-2.21 %) and varied from 0 to 15.6% between magisterial districts. In 19 of the 33 magisterial districts no serological reactors were observed. A large variation in prevalence was found within diptank areas. Brucellosis was found to be most prevalent in the northeastern area of the province. The findings of the survey are discussed ...
Between 1996 and 1998, a total of 2,494 samples of blood from humans and animals were collected and tested for brucellosis. This total included 1,594 samples of animal blood, collected from 1,050 sheep from 20 flocks, and 544 goats from eight herds. The serum samples were tested using the Rose Bengal test, the tube agglutination test, the complement fixation test and an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Moreover, a complete history was compiled from each flock/herd. The rate of abortions in sheep due to brucellosis ranged from 0.5% to 56%, with a mean of 33.2%. The goats had a higher abortion rate. Thirty-four aborted sheep foetuses collected from these 20 flocks were bacteriologically and pathologically examined. A pure culture of Brucella melitensis biotype 3 was isolated from 21 of the aborted foetuses.. ...

Brucella abortus is a Gram-negative, facultative intracellular bacterium that causes brucellosis, a worldwide zoonotic disease leading to undulant fever in humans and abortion in cattle. The immune response against this bacterium relies on the recognition of microbial pathogen-associated molecular patterns, such as lipoproteins, lipopolysaccharides and DNA; however, the immunostimulatory potential of B. abortus RNA remains to be elucidated. Here, we show that dendritic cells (DCs) produce significant amounts of IL-12, IL-6 and IP-10/CXCL10, when stimulated with purified B. abortus RNA. IL-12 secretion by DCs stimulated with RNA depends on TLR7 while IL-6 depends on TLR7 and partially on TLR3. Further, only TLR7 plays a role in IL-12 production induced by B. abortus infection. Moreover, cytokine production in DCs infected with B. abortus or stimulated with bacterial RNA was reduced upon pretreatment with MAPK/NF-κB inhibitors. By confocal microscopy, we demonstrated that TLR7 is colocalized with B.
Brucellosis is a contagious bacterial disease that affects several animal species. In dogs, this condition is caused by a bacterium known as Brucella canis.
During July 2015 a brucellosis outbreak was detected in Kyustendil district, west Bulgaria. As of 15 August, 31 patients have been diagnosed all with an epidemiological connection to Rila town. Patients have not travelled/worked abroad. Breeding family-owned goats and/or improper use of their milk appear to be the main risk factors for transmission of the infection. This second autochthonous brucellosis outbreak in Bulgaria since 2006, affects the western part of the country.
Mapping the restriction fragments of the Brucella melitensis 16M genome with a new restriction endonuclease, PacI, which cut the DNA into only eight fragments, indicated that this species contains two unique and independent replicons of about 2,100 and 1,150 kb. Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis of intact DNA revealed two bands migrating the expected distances. These replicons were identified as two unique and independent chromosomes by the presence of rRNA operons and genes for heat shock proteins mapping to separate replicons. ...
The study revealed that bovine brucellosis is still prevalent in the three states of northern Nigeria covered, with a herd-level prevalence of 77.5%, higher than the 40% reported in Zimbabwe [31], 42% in Ethiopia [28], 56% in Uganda [27] and 63% in Brazil [55]. Interestingly, a very similar herd prevalence of 77.8% was reported 40 years ago in southern Nigeria [15]. The dissemination of Ndama cattle, reportedly the most heavily infected breed [17], to various parts of the country as foundation stocks because of their good beef conformation and resistance to trypanosomosis and dermatophilosis infection may have contributed to the high prevalence in other parts of the country. Other interstate movement and trade in cattle across the country, as well as the nomadic nature of the pastoral Fulanis may also have contributed to high infection rates [14, 17, 18, 36].. Livestock production in Nigeria was dominated by nomadic pastoralism long before the advent of colonial era. In the 1930s, the government ...

Brucellosis is a disease of mainly cattle, swine, goats, sheep and dogs. The infection is transmitted to humans by animals through direct contact with infected materials like afterbirth or indirectly by ingestion of animal products and by inhalation of airborne agents. Consumption of raw milk and cheese made from raw milk (fresh cheese) is the major source of infection in man. Most of the fresh cheeses are sheep and goat cheese. Next to this it is considered to be an occupational disease for people who work in the livestock sector. Human-to-human transmission is very rare. ...
US - Efforts to control brucellosis in the Greater Yellowstone Area (GYA) should focus on reducing the risk of transmission from elk, which are now viewed as the primary source of the infection in new cases occurring in cattle and domestic bison, says a new report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
In an effort to ensure that the elk in the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks region 5 area are safe, the Montana FWP caught and tested elk for brucellosis.
The bacterial infection caused by brucellosis manifests in humans by affecting muscles and bones, leaving telltale skeletal lesions or marks on bones. These occur most commonly in the spine or the sacroiliac joint at the base of the spine.. After extensive testing, which required comparing the fossil with modern-day remains of people who suffered from the same disease, DAnastasio, Zipfel and their co-workers were able to conclude that the lesions on the fossil were consistent with brucellosis.. "The macroscopic, microscopic and radiological appearance of the lytic lesions of the fourth and fifth lumbar vertebrae is consistent with all the skeletal characteristics of brucellosis," they authors write in their paper.. The discovery of brucellosis in the fossil presents two major findings to the palaeontology community: the earliest evidence of a bacterial infection in a hominid and direct evidence that early hominids were meat eaters.. Australopithecus africanus became extinct about 2-million ...

Brucellosis is one of the most important infectious diseases worldwide. Nevertheless, since it is not regarded as a priority by national and international health systems in many endemic regions, it is considered to be a neglected zoonosis. Measures to prevent and control brucellosis rely upon direct approaches aimed at minimising the risk of spreading infection among animals. Collectively, these measures tend to reduce the exposure of animals to Brucella spp. and to increase resistance to infection in susceptible animals. To implement an effective disease control strategy, detailed information about the presence of the pathogen in a specific territory is of fundamental importance. For that reason, particular emphasis should be placed on active surveillance using serological methods. Serological surveillance provides useful information to aid in understanding epidemiological patterns and assess the impact of brucellosis in the targeted area, paving the way to define the most suitable approaches ...
Brucellosis affects mainly farm animals but dogs may harbor the bacteria that cause the disease and spread it to other animals and people. Dog-to-human transmission is rare; the risk is higher for people who work around animals and pets - for veterinarians, for example - that it is for pet owners. Only a couple of hundred cases occur in the United States each year. The most common way of contracting the disease is eating or drinking contaminated milk products. Americans sometimes get brucellosis from eating unpasteurized milk or cheese while traveling in certain parts of Europe, Asia, and Africa. The disease is caused by bacteria in the genus Brucella. The species that infects dogs is called Brucella canis. The symptoms are similar to those produced by influenza: fever, headaches, back pain, and physical weakness. In severe cases, the infection gets into the central nervous system or lining of the heart. (Locked) More » ...
There are four species of the Gram-negative, aerobic brucella bacillus, each comprising several biovars: Brucella melitensis (Malta fever, most commonly associated with goats, sheep, and camels), B. abortus (cattle), B. suis (pigs), and B. canis (dogs). The disease that they cause-brucellosis-occurs worldwide, but is especially prevalent in the Mediterranean region, the Indian subcontinent, Mexico, and Central and South America. Transmission is commonly by ingestion of untreated dairy products or other contaminated foods, but can also be by inhalation or inoculation....

Interpretive Summary: Brucella are intracellular pathogens that cause reproductive losses in cattle and zoonotic infections in people. Live attenuated vaccines have been available for protecting domestic livestock against brucellosis for more than 60 years. Current vaccines are effective in preventing abortion and transmission of brucellosis, but poor at preventing infection or seroconversion. Current knowledge suggests that both the innate and adaptive immune responses contribute to immunity against intracellular pathogens and that binding of pathogen structures onto pattern recognition receptors (PMRs) is critical to development of protective immunity. The observations that killed bacteria or subunit vaccines do not appear to fully stimulate PMRs or mimic intracellular trafficking of live Brucella, may explain their inability to induce protection that equals that provided by live vaccines. Brucella appear to have multiple mechanisms that subvert innate and adaptive immunity and prevent or ...
Remote sensing technologies can accurately capture environmental characteristics, and together with environmental modeling approaches, help to predict climate-sensitive infectious disease outbreaks. Brucellosis remains rampant worldwide in both domesticated animals and humans. This study used human brucellosis (HB) as a test case to identify important environmental determinants of the disease and predict its outbreaks. A novel artificial neural network (ANN) model was developed, using annual county-level numbers of HB cases and data on 37 environmental variables, potentially associated with HB in Inner Mongolia, China. Data from 2006 to 2008 were used to train, validate and test the model, while data for 2009-2010 were used to assess the models performance. The Enhanced Vegetation Index was identified as the most important predictor of HB incidence, followed by land surface temperature and other temperature- and precipitation-related variables. The suitable ecological niche of HB was modeled based on

Antibiotics such as tetracyclines, rifampicin, and the aminoglycosides streptomycin and gentamicin are effective against Brucella bacteria. However, the use of more than one antibiotic is needed for several weeks, because the bacteria incubate within cells.. Surveillance using serological tests, as well as tests on milk like the milk ring test, can be used for screening and play an important role in campaigns to eliminate the disease. As well individual animal testing both for trade and for disease control purposes is practiced. In endemic areas, vaccination is often used to reduce the incidence of infection. Several vaccines are available that use modified live viruses. The World Organisation for Animal Health Manual of Diagnostic Test and Vaccines for Terrestrial Animals provides detailed guidance on the production of vaccines.As the disease is closer to being eliminated, a test and stamping out program is required to completely eliminate it.. The gold standard treatment for adults is daily ...
Brucellosis is often detected when cull cows are sent to market. If a cow tests positive for brucellosis antibodies in her blood, the herd will be placed under temporary quarantine for additional testing of all reproductive cattle. Any suspect cows are sent to slaughter, so tissues can be tested. If the Brucella bacteria can be grown from the cows tissues, the entire herd is placed under a written quarantine. This means the herd will not be allowed to use any pastures that would allow fence-line contact with other herds. The herd is quarantined until all test-eligible cattle pass three consecutive blood-tests. The final test must occur after the herd has finished calving ...

En tres municipios de Córdoba (Andalucía, España) se identificaron once casos de brucelosis. Se realizó un estudio de casos y controles, seleccionando tres casos por cada control. Las personas que consumieron queso de cabra fresco sin higienizar elaborado en una granja situada en el territorio epidémico, presentaban un mayor riesgo de padecer brucelosis (OR=21,6, IC 95%=1,6-639,8). Se identificó Brucella melitensis serotipo 3 en muestras clínicas, y en tejido de cabras y muestras de leche de la granja del rebaño. Se adoptaron medidas preventivas y el brote fue contenido tras la retirada del mercado de todos los quesos sospechosos, la desinfección y limpieza adicional de la granja y la realización de actividades de promoción sanitaria.

Spleen cells from mice infected with the rough Brucella melitensis strain B115 were fused with NSO myeloma cells. Hybridoma supernatants were screened in ELISA with cell walls (CW), sonicated cell extracts (CE) and rough lipopolysaccharide (R-LPS) of B. melitensis strain B115 and whole B. melitensis B115 cells. Surprisingly, 22 monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) reacting in ELISA with both CW and CE but not with R-LPS and bacterial cells were shown by immunoblot analysis and ELISA to react with smooth lipopolysaccharide (S-LPS). These mAbs also reacted in ELISA with O polysaccharides (OPS) from the smooth Brucella abortus strain 99 and the smooth B. melitensis strain 16M and thus recognize epitopes present on the O-chain. Proteinase K LPS preparations from B. melitensis B115 analysed by immunoblotting with one mAb (12G12) recognizing S-LPS of both A and M specificity displayed the typical S-LPS high-molecular-mass ladder pattern but no S-LPS was detected in the phenol/water/chloroform/light petroleum LPS
Well, this is an interesting "CYA" response, now that everyone knows Corrientes arent the cause. Poor "Buffalo Allies of Bozeman" - another group who doesnt have a clue. How do you know bison didnt cause this? - the investigation isnt complete! Are you aware of the 1983 US Animal Health Association report showing free ranging bison infecting cattle with brucellosis? I doubt it. Do your research. Learn the real story. The GYA bison are up to 50% seropositive. Dont believe the "exposure" malarky to explain that. The antibodies are antigen driven - meaning there must be bacteria present in the animals body to cause a positive blood test. A positive animal is NOT immune - quite the contrary!The brucella antibody half-life is about 3 weeks - meaning if the animal was able to fight off the disease (which a few do), they would be test negative very quickly. If they test positive, they are likely infected. Bison and elk swap the disease back and forth and it spills over into cattle when the ...
Brucella abortus is a facultative intracellular bacterial pathogen, which causes abortion in cattle and undulant fever in human. B. abortus strain RB51 (Strain RB51) is the official vaccine for bovine brucellosis in the USA. B. abortus strain RB51 can be used as a vector for the over-expression of its own (homologous) as well as heterologous protective antigens. The immune system can detect these heterologous antigens and produce a response. Expressing a protein in different bacterial compartments has been shown to affect its accessibility to the immune system and the way the antigen is processed by antigen presenting cells. In order to determine if the immune response is affected by the localization of the antigen, green fluorescent protein (GFP) was expressed at three different locations in B. abortus strain RB51, outer-membrane (OM), periplasmic space (PS) and in the cytoplasmic region (CR) of B. abortus strain RB51. This localization was obtained by transforming strain RB51 with plasmids ...
Bacillus anthracis is a facultative intracellular bacterial pathogen that can cause cutaneous, gastrointestinal or respiratory disease in many vertebrates, including humans. Commercially available anthrax vaccines for immunization of humans are of limited duration and do not protect against the respiratory form of the disease. Brucella abortus is a facultative intracellular bacterium that causes chronic infection in animals and humans. As with other intracellular pathogens, cell mediated immune responses (CMI) are crucial in affording protection against brucellosis. B. abortus strain RB51 has been shown to be useful in eliciting protective cell mediated immunity and humoral responses against Brucella in cattle and other animal species. Since the protective antigen (PA) of B. anthracis is known to induce protective antibodies, it was decided that the objective of this research was to test whether the gene encoding PA could be expressed in Brucella producing a bivalent vaccine to protect against ...
Brucella abortus is a Gram-negative bacterium that causes abortion and infertility in food animals and a chronic debilitating febrile disease in humans known as brucellosis. As with all pathogenic bacteria, the Brucella spp. require sufficient metal nutrition during the course of an infection. Host-mediated metal withdrawal defenses actively restrict the bioavailability of metals which requires invading bacteria to employ high affinity metal acquisition systems to overcome these metal-limiting conditions. While obtaining sufficient metals during host infection is critical to the survival of these bacteria, avoiding metal toxicity is equally important. Excess accumulation of one metal relative to others can lead to protein mis-metallation when surplus metal ions outcompete other metal species for their native binding sites. To prevent metal toxicity, bacteria respond to high intracellular metal concentrations by means of metal-responsive transcriptional regulators that downregulate metal import ...

HLA-B39 (B39) is an HLA-B serotype. The serotype identifies the more common HLA-B*39 gene products. B39 is a split antigen of the broad antigen B16, and is a sister type of B38. B39 is most commonly found on the west pacific rim, in Japan and highest frequency in the new world. In Europe it is found in Scandinavia and Northern Russia. The serology for the most common B39 alleles, B*3901 and B*3906 is good, but some allele products are not well detected. Given the differential involvement of these alleles in disease testing should involve high resolution typing. B39 is suggested as a factor in Takayasus arteritis and gallstones in Mexico. Osteoarticular complications of brucellosis appear to be associated with B39. An association with spondylarthropathies and psoriatic arthritis was observed in several studies. Psoriatic arthritis appears to be linked to MICA-A9 which tightly linked to HLA-B39. B39 also appears to be involved in the Fishers syndrome variant of Guillain-Barré syndrome. B39 ...
