Abstract :

Brucellosis is a significant resurgent bacterial zoonosis of economic and public health significance. It has a significant economic impact on both the owners' and the livestock's health and productivity. Brucella are gram-negative, facultative intracellular bacteria that can infect a variety of animal species, including humans. The majority of human exposure to brucellosis occurs during calving and abortions when humans come into contact with animals and food that contains animal products. Consumption of tainted, unpasteurized dairy products might potentially transmit the illness. The incidence of human brucellosis varies by region and has been linked to various factors, including techniques in animal husbandry, the type of causal factor, and regional methods used in food processing. If the direct inspection is confirmed by further tests, microscopic analysis of smears that are stained can be helpful for tentative detection. The mainstay of brucellosis control in cattle is mass vaccination, but it should be used in conjunction with other strategies to stop the disease's spread, make it possible to identify individual animals and herds and foster more community involvement.
