Diagnosis of Brucellosis
Brucellosis serology have advanced considerably in the last decades with very sensitive and specific new tests available, from the rapid recognition of genus to differential identification of species and strains. Expand
Pathogenesis and pathobiology of brucellosis in livestock.
The type IV secretion system translocates Brucella effector proteins into host cells and is critical for both survival and replication of brucella in infected host cells. Expand

The brucellosis control program consists principally of test and slaughter and has been successful mainly in the dairy farms that have the incentive due to increased pricing because of obtaining a low prevalence of the disease. Expand
Evaluation of serological tests for detection of caprine antibody to Brucella melitensis
Goat sera tested for their antibody against Brucella melitensis were classified based on their reactivity in the BPAT and CFT, and the sensitivity and specificity of the assays were as follows. Expand
Pathogenesis of abortion of bovine brucellosis.
The present review includes most of the information available regarding to this matter and emphasis is done in the interaction of Brucella abortus with the trophoblastic cells of the bovine placenta. Expand
Validation of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays for the diagnosis of bovine brucellosis.
The results indicate the potential use of the CELISA as a complementary assay in the brucellosis control and eradication program in Argentina and other countries, where Brucella abortusstrain 19 vaccination is mandatory. Expand
Fluorescence polarization assay for the diagnosis of bovine brucellosis: adaptation to field use.
A fluorescence polarization assay (FPA) was used to test whole blood samples prepared by mixing blood cells from cattle without exposure to Brucella abortus (B. abortus) with sera from animals withExpand
Validation of a second generation competitive enzyme immunoassay (CELISA) for the diagnosis of brucellosis in various species of domestic animals.
A second generation competitive enzyme immunoassay for detection of bovine antibody to Brucella abortus was developed to eliminate reagent variables in the assay, thus eliminating the requirement for polyclonal anti-mouse-enzyme conjugate for detection. Expand
Genotypes of pathogenic Leptospira spp isolated from rodents in Argentina
A multiple-locus variable-number tandem repeat analysis (MLVA) was applied to genotype 22 pathogenic Leptospira strains isolated from urban and periurban rodent populations from different regions of Argentina, finding three MLVA profiles were identified in strains belonging to the species Leptonospira interrogans. Expand
Invasion and replication of Brucella abortus in three different trophoblastic cell lines.
It was concluded that B. abortus can infect trophoblastic cells throughout the gestational period but bacterial multiplication does not occur in these cells before middle or late gestation. Expand
