AffiVET® Bovine Brucella Antibody Rapid Test Kit
Desease or Pathogen: Brucellosis
Test Type: Rapid Test
Bovine brucellosis, caused by the bacteria Brucella abortus, is a highly contagious and zoonotic disease that primarily affects cattle. It is recognized as one of the most economically significant diseases in the livestock industry worldwide. Brucellosis not only poses a threat to animal health and welfare but also has public health implications due to its potential transmission to humans through infected animal products.
- Transmission: The disease is primarily transmitted through direct contact with infected animals or ingestion of contaminated materials, such as aborted fetuses, placental tissues, or unpasteurized milk. The bacteria can also be spread through contaminated equipment, water, or vectors like ticks.
- Clinical Signs: Bovine brucellosis primarily affects the reproductive system of cattle. Infected animals may exhibit symptoms such as abortion, stillbirths, reduced fertility, retained placenta, and inflammation of the reproductive organs. However, some infected animals may not display any visible signs of the disease, making it crucial to implement diagnostic testing to identify carrier animals.
- Economic Impact: Bovine brucellosis has severe economic consequences for the livestock industry. The disease can lead to reduced milk production, increased calf mortality, decreased fertility, and culling of infected animals. Additionally, international trade restrictions may be imposed on countries or regions where brucellosis is prevalent, further impacting the agricultural economy.
- Zoonotic Potential: Brucella abortus is zoonotic, meaning it can infect humans. Individuals can contract the disease through direct contact with infected animals or consumption of contaminated animal products. Human brucellosis, also known as undulant fever, can cause flu-like symptoms, including fever, fatigue, joint pain, and persistent headaches. Timely and accurate diagnosis of bovine brucellosis is crucial to prevent its transmission to humans.
- Control and Eradication: Effective control and eradication programs are implemented in many countries to manage bovine brucellosis. These programs involve surveillance, vaccination, and the culling of infected animals. Diagnostic tests, such as the AffiVET® Bovine Brucella Antigen Rapid Test Kit, play a vital role in the early detection and monitoring of infected animals, enabling targeted intervention measures and preventing the spread of the disease within and between herds.
