  • Moreover, the absence of the immunoproteasome had an impact on MHC-I surface expression and antigen presentation by dendritic cells.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We describe the case of a failed hip replacement secondary to infection by Brucella abortus, as well as presentation, treatment course, and 2-year follow-up.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Such fragments include genomic islands (GIs); nine GIs are present in Brucella, including genomic island 3 (GI-3), present in B. abortus, B. melitensis and B. ovis. The GI-3 have 29 open reading frames (ORFs) most of them with unknown function.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A case of severe chronic spondylitis of the lumbar spine caused by Brucella abortus is presented. Infection was probably associated with ingestion of raw cow's milk.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Hypersomnia
  • In September of 2009, quite abruptly, he developed asthenia and hypersomnia without any apparent cause or symptoms like fever, chills, or night sweats.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Aspiration
  • There was no need for aspiration of infected cyst fluid. Hereby, according to the medical database search, we report that the first renal cyst infection caused by B. abortus was successfully treated with triple antibiotic therapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Francis held an Aspirant fellowship from FRS-FNRS. J.-F. Sternon, P. Godessart, M. Van der Henst, and K. Poncin are supported by a Ph.D. grant from FRIA (FRS-FNRS).[iai.asm.org]
Regurgitation
  • Brucella abortus infection of the aortic valve caused acute aortic regurgitation leading to severe left ventricular failure in a 62-year-old man. He made an excellent recovery after emergency aortic valve replacement.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Left Flank Pain
  • A 49-year-old man with a medical history of polycystic kidney disease was presented to the emergency department with fever and left flank pain. Abdominal examination revealed an enlarged and painful left kidney.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Neglect
  • Because brucellosis is a neglected disease, special attention should be given to it in the training of medical and veterinary students.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Flank Pain
  • A 49-year-old man with a medical history of polycystic kidney disease was presented to the emergency department with fever and left flank pain. Abdominal examination revealed an enlarged and painful left kidney.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

Coxiella Burnetii
  • KEYWORDS: Brucella; Coxiella burnetii; Francisella tularensis; Military; Seroprevalence[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • When dDCs were incubated with bacteria known for their placenta tropism, Coxiella burnetii and Brucella abortus, they were also unable to mature and to produce inflammatory cytokines.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Afipia Felis
  • ., Ochrobactrum anthropi and Afipia felis . The addition of a simple short sample preparation step enabled the indirect phage-based detection of B . abortus in spiked blood, with the same high sensitivity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Human Papillomavirus
  • In this study, the immunostimulatory properties of LPS from smooth and rough strains of B. abortus (S19 and RB51) as adjuvants were investigated for the human papillomavirus type 16 (HPV16) L1 virus-like particles (L1VLPs) vaccines.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Trophoblastic Cells
  • Here we show that Brucella abortus invades and replicates in the human trophoblastic cell line Swan-71 and that the intracellular survival of the bacterium depends on a functional virB operon.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Cortisol treatment during B. abortus infection significantly inhibits cytokine, chemokine, and MMP-9 secretion. In contrast, DHEA treatment had no effect.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We describe the case of a failed hip replacement secondary to infection by Brucella abortus, as well as presentation, treatment course, and 2-year follow-up.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Furthermore, oral treatment with MG induced an immune response and decreased bacterial proliferation in Br. abortus-infected mice, suggesting that MG may be an alternative treatment for brucellosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Treatment with antibiotics and valve replacement was successful.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Despite treatment with empirical antibiotics and debridement of the postoperative surgical wound, the infection persisted without improvement.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • Abstract Brucella abortus is an intracellular bacterial pathogen and an etiological agent of the zoonotic disease known as brucellosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • BACKGROUND: Brucella abortus is the etiological agent of a worldwide zoonosis called brucellosis. This alpha-proteobacterium is dividing asymmetrically, and PdhS, an essential histidine kinase, was reported to be an old pole marker.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • IMPORTANCE: Brucella abortus is an etiological agent of brucellosis, which is among the most common zoonotic diseases worldwide.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract Brucella abortus is the etiological agent of brucellosis, a zoonotic disease affecting cattle and humans. This disease has been partially controlled in cattle by immunization with live attenuated B. abortus S19 and RB51 strains.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Article First Online: 03 November 2010 211 Downloads 6 Citations Abstract Brucella abortus is the etiological agent of bovine brucellosis, an infectious disease of humans and cattle.[link.springer.com]

Epidemiology

  • One of the two B. melitensis isolates from a human patient shared the same genotype as a livestock isolate, suggesting a possible epidemiological connection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • From the collection of isolates analysed in this study we conclude that MLVA16(Orsay) provided a clear view of Brucella spp. population, confirming epidemiological linkage in outbreak investigations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Here, we analyzed brucellosis epidemiological data, and assessed the effectiveness of eradication strategies employed over the past 70 years to counteract this infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • An epidemiological investigation identified 3 seroconverted individuals, 1 of whom had clinical manifestations and laboratory results compatible with infection at the time of exposure (n 11; attack rate 9.1%).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Pathophysiology

  • Abstract Trophoblasts are targets of infection by Brucella spp. but their role in the pathophysiology of pregnancy complications of brucellosis is unknown.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • BACKGROUND: Human brucellosis is a preventable zoonoses that may become persistent, causing, if left untreated, severe localized disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • New vaccines have since emerged in the prevention of brucellosis, particularly DNA vaccines, which have shown effectiveness and a good safety profile.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Considering its strict zoonotic nature, understanding of the pathogenesis and immunity of Brucella spp. in natural animal hosts is essential to prevent human infections.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • […] for Disease Control and Prevention, Beijing, China.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Furthermore, we discuss the risk of transmission to operating room personnel and the appropriate preventative measures to avoid transmission.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
