Chlamydiosis is a zoonosis with a worldwide distribution. The reservoir of susceptible hosts is large and includes birds and both domestic and wild mammals. Chlamydial infection, determined serologically, seems to be widespread among wild ruminants in the Paris zoo (France). In February 2003, an abortion case was reported within the springbok (Antidorcas marsupialis) herd of the zoo. PCR assay using primers targeting the polymorph membrane protein gene (pmp) family was performed on both vaginal… CONTINUE READING
