Brucellosis is one of the most prevalent bacterial zoonosis of worldwide distribution. The disease is caused by Brucella spp., facultative intracellular pathogens. Brucellosis in animals results in abortion of fetuses, while in humans, it frequently manifests flu-like symptoms and a typical undulant fever, being osteoarthritis a common complication of the chronic infection. The two most common ways to acquire the infection in humans are through the ingestion of contaminated dairy products or by inhalation of contaminated aerosols. Brucella spp. enter the body mainly through the gastrointestinal and respiratory mucosa; howe...

Authors: Shin JY, Che DN, Cho BO, Kang HJ, Kim J, Jang SI Abstract Commiphora myrrha (Myrrh) is widely recognized for its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, which are utilized for the treatment of oral ulcers, gingivitis, sinusitis, glomerulonephritis, brucellosis and a variety of skin disorders. The current study aimed to assess whether myrrh modulates itch-associated interleukin (IL)-31 cytokine production and histamine release in stimulated human mast cells (HMC-1). To realize this, molecular biology techniques including real-time quantitiative PCR, western blotting and ELISA were employed. The resu...

We present a case of a rare manifestation of brucellosis i.e., septic arthritis of the knee joint associated with a lytic lesion of the proximal tibia. The patient belonged to a Brucella endemic country, and clinical features were of chronic reactive knee arthritis with synovial hypertrophy and effusion. Advanced diagnostic methods played a pivotal role in excluding the diagnosis of tuberculosis, and thus unnecessary administration of antitubercular therapy and initiating focused narrowed anti-Brucella management, achieving the goal of antimicrobial stewardship also.

ni Ana Moreno Pestiviruses are distributed worldwide and are responsible for a variety of economically important diseases. They are not very host-specific, and thus sheep can be infected by well-known pestiviruses like bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) and border disease virus (BDV), as well as by other recently discovered pestivirus species. The aim of this study is to describe the isolation and characterization of four pestivirus strains detected in aborted lamb fetuses from a single farm in the Brescia province (Northern Italy). A total of twelve aborted fetuses were collected and examined. After necropsy, organs...
