Abstract

Bovine brucellosis is an endemic and zoonotic disease of high economic impact. The genetic identification of the prevalent Brucella abortus strains is important for further epidemiological strategies of disease control. The insertion sequence IS711 was utilized as a genetic marker to differentiate...

Abstract

A total of 60 pooled milk samples from 60 dairy farms were tested for Brucella antibodies by the ring test (using an antigen from Institute of Microbiology at the Southern University of Chile) and by an ELISA using a commercial kit produced by Hoescht. Both tests detected 18 positive and 42...

Abstract

B. abortus antigens were detected in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded lung and liver sections from aborted fetuses using a commercial polyclonal antibody in an avidin-biotin-peroxidase histochemical method. Of 13 fetuses from farms with a history of brucellosis, lungs of 9 fetuses and the liver of ...

Abstract

During validation of 2 indirect-ELISA (I-ELISA) kits used for brucellosis serological diagnosis, 2 groups of serum samples from adult cows in Chile, negative for brucellosis in the Rose Bengal and Rivanol tests, were analysed. The serum came from cattle in a brucellosis free area (BFA group) or...

Abstract

A fluorescence polarization assay (FPA) was used to test (198, Canada; 32, Argentina; 108, Chile and 85, Ireland) whole blood samples prepared by mixing blood cells from cattle without exposure to Brucella abortus with 691 sera from animals with confirmed (bacteriologically) infection. A cutoff...
