Seroprevalence of Antibodies to Chlamydophila psittaci in Zoo Workers in Brazil
Results indicated the occurrence of infection and previous contact of Brazilian zoo workers with C. psittaci, as well as the zoonotic potential of psittacosis in this risk population, and the need to adopt preventive measures to control avian chlamydiosis and protect the health of zoo workers in the country.
Avian host range of Chlamydophila spp. based on isolation, antigen detection and serology
Evidence is presented in an attempt to provide evidence for the large number of bird species that have been naturally infected with chlamydia in the avian host range of avian Chlamydophila spp.
