This report describes an outbreak of Listeria ivanovii-induced abortion in sheep in the Kars region. In a flock of 120 sheep raised in Taslidere, a village in the region of Arpacay, in Kars, some ewes in the last stages of gestation aborted in March, 2004. Necropsy was conducted on 5 aborted foetuses. Livers of the aborted foetuses showed diffuse necrotic foci. Histologically, the liver and lungs of aborted foetuses revealed diffuse coagulative necrosis infiltrated with macrophages and… Expand

Clinico-pathological, bacteriological and PCR findings of ovine listeriosis: an emerging disease in Southern Iran.
TLDR
As the risk of disease in human may increase with higher infectious doses of the organism, surveillance on the occurrence of the listeriosis in humans should be considered in public health programs. Expand
Use of immunoperoxidase technique in smears prepared from vaginal secretions in early diagnosis of listerial abortions in cattle.
TLDR
In conclusion, immunoperoxidase technique in smears prepared from vaginal swabs can be used in early diagnosis of listerial abortions since it can give results the same day samples collected, however the technique must be supported by bacteriological culture technique which is performed for bacterial isolation and identification of the agent.

smcL as a novel diagnostic marker for quantitative detection of Listeria ivanovii in biological samples
TLDR
This method can be an adequate alternative for the identification of L. ivanovii and for complete diagnosis of animal and human listeriosis and therefore facilitates the establishment of preventive and prophylactic measures in food and farm environments. Expand
smcL as a novel diagnostic marker for quantitative detection of Listeria ivanovii in biological samples
TLDR
A novel molecular tool for the quantitative detection of the ruminant pathogen Listeria ivanovii in different biological matrices is developed. Expand

TLDR
On the basis of findings in this study, L ivanovii must be included as a potential cause of bovine abortions as it is seen in abortions attributable to L monocytogenes. Expand
