Acta Tropica Volume 172, August 2017, Are brucellosis, Q fever and melioidosis potential causes of febrile illness in Madagascar? Open Access Abstract Brucellosis, Q fever and melioidosis are zoonoses, which can lead to pyrexia.
These diseases are often under-ascertained and underreported because of their unspecific clinical signs and symptoms, insufficient awareness by physicians and public health officers and limited diagnostic capabilities, especially in low-resource countries. Therefore, the presence of Brucella spp., Coxiella burnetii and Burkholderia pseudomallei was investigated in Malagasy patients exhibiting febrile illness. In addition, we analyzed zebu cattle and their ticks as potential reservoirs for Brucella and C. burnetii, respectively. Anti-C. burnetii antibodies were found in four out of 201 zebu serum samples (2%), whereas anti-Brucella antibodies could not be detected.

PLOS 07/04/17 Poor performance of the rapid test for human brucellosis in health facilities in Kenya. Abstract Human brucellosis is considered to be an important but typically under-diagnosed cause of febrile illness in many low and middle-income countries.
In Kenya, and throughout East Africa, laboratory diagnosis for the disease is based primarily on the febrile antigen Brucella agglutination test (FBAT), yet few studies of the diagnostic accuracy of this test exist. Assessment of the performance of the FBAT is essential for its appropriate clinical use, as well as for evaluating surveillance data reported by public health systems. To assess FBAT performance, we collected sera from people with symptoms compatible with brucellosis attending two health facilities in Busia County, Kenya. PLOS 15/03/17 Detection and characterization of Brucella spp. in bovine milk in small-scale urban and peri-urban farming in Tajikistan. Abstract Brucellosis is one of the most common zoonoses globally, and Central Asia remains a Brucella hotspot.
The World Health Organization classifies brucellosis as a neglected zoonotic disease that is rarely in the spotlight for research and mainly affects poor, marginalized people. Urban and peri-urban farming is a common practice in many low-income countries, and it increases the incomes of families that are often restrained by limited economic resources. However, there is a concern that the growing number of people and livestock living close together in these areas will increase the transmission of zoonotic pathogens such as Brucella.

Wardrop, Andrew J. PLOS 05/01/16 Seroprevalence of Brucellosis, Leptospirosis, and Q Fever among Butchers and Slaughterhouse Workers in South-Eastern Iran. Abstract Zoonotic diseases can be occupational hazards to people who work in close contact with animals or their carcasses.
In this cross-sectional study, 190 sera were collected from butchers and slaughterhouse workers in different regions of the Sistan va Baluchestan province, in Iran in 2011. A questionnaire was filled for each participant to document personal and behavioural information. The sera were tested for detection of specific IgG antibodies against brucellosis, leptospirosis, and Q fever (phase I and II) using commercial enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA). The seroprevalence of brucellosis was 7.9%, leptospirosis 23.4%, and phase I and II of Q fever were 18.1% and 14.4%, respectively.

Zoonoses and Public Health Volume 63, Issue 4, pages 294–302, June 2016 Human Brucellosis Trends: Re-emergence and Prospects for Control Using a One Health Approach in Azerbaijan (1983–2009) Summary Brucellosis is one of the most common and widely spread zoonotic diseases in the world.
Control of the disease in humans is dependent upon limiting the infection in animals through surveillance and vaccination. Given the dramatic economic and political changes that have taken place in the former Soviet Union, which have limited control, evaluating the status of human brucellosis in former Soviet states is crucial.

Suggested citation for this article To the Editor: The current rates of animal and human brucellosis in southern Israel are unacceptably high (1). Unsupervised livestock rearing, smuggling of herds, and the dissolution of Israel’s “test, slaughter, and compensate” program for small ruminants in 1997 have generated a large, uncontrolled animal reservoir in the region. The Bedouin Arab inhabitants who live in close proximity to herds and consume unpasteurized dairy products are disproportionately affected. Outbreaks from parts of Israel that were previously free of brucellosis are reported with increasing frequency. Moreover, 2 decades after supposed elimination of bovine brucellosis, a cattle herd adjacent to Bedouin grazing areas was found to be highly infected with Brucella melitensis (2).
We report 5 cases of severe brucellosis in patients from a community whose members typically do not raise herds and do not consume unpasteurized dairy products.

Humans, especially in low income countries, can acquire infection by direct contact with infected animal or by consumption of animal products and show high morbidity, severe economic losses and public health problems. IRISH VETERINARY JOURNAL 24/02/16 Use of serology and real time PCR to control an outbreak of bovine brucellosis at a dairy cattle farm in the Nile Delta region, Egypt.
Among the bacterial zoonoses affecting dairy cattle in developing countries, bovine brucellosis is considered the most prevalent infection when the applied control programs have failed. The infection poses not only a risk to animals, but also represents a zoonosis with debilitating illness and severe complications in humans. In Egyptian control programs for brucellosis, RB51 B. abortus vaccine is believed to be cleared from the blood stream within three days but can sporadically induce late term abortions if administered to pregnant cows . The agent can then persist in infected tissues of the cow and fetus/calf. The presence of Brucella DNA in blood samples of these rare cases was supposed to be due to intermittent bacteremia whereas the organism is located intracellularly and may result in a persistent infection for long time .
In the present study, an unexpected high number of rt-PCR positive blood samples were detected five months after routine vaccination.

Preventive Veterinary Medicine Volume 110, Issue 2, 1 June 2013, Prevalence and risk-mapping of bovine brucellosis in Maranhão State, Brazil. Open Access Abstract Between 2007 and 2009, a cross-sectional survey was carried out in Maranhão State, Brazil to estimate the seroprevalence of and risk factors for bovine brucellosis. In total, 749 herds and 6779 cows greater than two years of age were blood sampled. At the time of sampling a questionnaire to collect details on possible risk factors for bovine brucellosis was administered to the participating herd manager. A logistic regression model was developed to quantify the association between herd demographic and management characteristics and the herd-level brucellosis status. The estimated herd-level prevalence of brucellosis in Maranhão was 11.4% (95% CI 9.2–14) and the individual animal-level prevalence was 2.5% (95% CI 1.7–3.6).

Many of the zoonotic diseases are a public health concern but also affect the production of food of animal origin thus they could cause problems in international trade of animal-origin goods. A major factor contributing to the emergence of new zoonotic pathogens in human populations is increased contact between humans and animals.
