The presumptive diagnosis of Brucellosis is based on a high or rising antibody titer measured by the Brucella Standard Agglutination Test (SAT). This tests does not discriminate between the immunoglobulin classes (IgG and IgM). The purpose of this study was to compare the diagnostic value of SAT with Brucella Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) IgG and IgM tests in patients with Brucella bacteremia. Over a one-year period, we had 68 patients with clinical features suggestive of… CONTINUE READING
