ruminant brucellosis in the kafr el sheikh governorate of the nile delta, egypt: prevalence of a neglected zoonosis.background: brucellosis is a neglected tropical zoonosis allegedly reemerging in middle eastern countries. infected ruminants are the primary source of human infection; consequently, estimates of the frequency of ruminant brucellosis are useful elements for building effective control strategies. unfortunately, these estimates are lacking in most middle east countries including egypt. our objectives are to estimate the frequency of ruminant brucellosis and to describe its spatial distribution in ...201121264355
assessment and simulation of the implementation of brucellosis control programme in an endemic area of the middle east.brucellosis is an important zoonosis in middle eastern countries. in this study we assessed the extent of the application of planned official brucellosis control programmes in kafr el sheikh governorate, egypt and we used a stochastic simulation model to assess the probable impact of changes to the official control strategy on the dynamics of small-ruminant brucellosis. our results show that <7% of female livestock were tested in any given year in the study area and that quarantine was not consi ...200919288957
