Bushmeat may breed deadly bacteria
(Penn State) People who eat wildebeests, wart hogs and other wild African animals may be at risk for contracting potentially life-threatening diseases, according to an international team of researchers. The team analyzed samples of bushmeat -- meat derived from wildlife -- in the Western Serengeti in Tanzania and identified several groups of bacteria, many of which contain the species that cause diseases such as anthrax, brucellosis and Q fever.

The Dengue Dance?
Discussion Dengue is an important arboviral infection that affects about 40% of the world population. It is found mainly in topical and subtropical areas of the world mainly in developing countries but it range is spreading including the United States. A review of common arboviruses can be found here. It is a flaviavirus with 4 distinct serotypes named DENV-1 through DENV-4 and is spread by A. aegypti a day biting mosquito. Infection with one serotype confers immunity to that serotype but not the others. It does offer some protection for cross-infection but this only lasts a few months. Incubation period is 3-14 days with ...

Hidden costs of disease to greater Yellowstone elk
(S.J.& Jessie E. Quinney College of Natural Resources, Utah State University) For decades researchers have known that a bacterial disease in elk, bison and cattle in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem causes periodic abortions in these animals and chronic illness in humans drinking infected cow's milk. The disease, called brucellosis, poses a financial concern for dairy producers and cattle ranchers, but its effects on the wild elk population have generally been considered minor.

Misidentification of Brucella suis as Ochrobactrum anthropi in a Patient with Septic Arthritis
We report a case of a 24-year-old resident of North Queensland who presented to our facility with a native joint septic arthritis. A bacterial isolate recovered from an initial joint aspirate culture was misidentified as Ochrobactrum anthropi using an automated identification system. A subsequent specimen grew an isolate that was identified as Brucella sp. by the same automated system, with a single biochemical reaction (adonitol) differentiating the identities of the two organisms. Subsequent real-time PCR testing of the IS711 element of the Brucella genome confirmed both isolates as Brucella suis. (Source: Clinical Microbiology Newsletter)
