Human brucellosis is a zoonotic disease which is endemic in Saudi Arabia. The aim of this study was to investigate the humoral immune responses and identify the target antigens that persist at different stages in human brucellosis during antibiotic therapy. To do this, an acute case of accidental nosocomial infection was studied experimentally. Blood was collected from the patient at the time of diagnosis, and at weekly intervals during therapy until remission. IgG and IgM immunoblotting was… CONTINUE READING
