the isolation of brucella abortus biotype i from african buffalo in the kruger national park.the isolation of brucella abortus from free living wild africal buffalo (syncerus caffer) in the kruger national park, south africa, is described. the four isolates testes proved to be biotype i and it is speculated that the origin of brucellosis in wild animals is from domestic stock.1977406393
antibodies to some pathogenic agents in free-living wild species in tanzania.a total of 535 sera from eight species of wildlife were collected from different game areas in tanzania between 1987 and 1989. these sera were tested for antibodies against foot-and-mouth disease, bovine herpes virus types 1 and 2, lumpy skin disease, bovine viral diarrhoea, akabane, bovine ephemeral fever, bluetongue, enzootic bovine leucosis, african horse sickness and african swine fever viruses and brucella abortus based on the expected species susceptibility. sera from buffalo syncerus caff ...19902123458
a case of orchitis caused by brucella abortus in the african buffalo. 19734716213
context-dependent survival, fecundity and predicted population-level consequences of brucellosis in african buffalo.chronic infections may have negative impacts on wildlife populations, yet their effects are difficult to detect in the absence of long-term population monitoring. brucella abortus, the bacteria responsible for bovine brucellosis, causes chronic infections and abortions in wild and domestic ungulates, but its impact on population dynamics is not well understood. we report infection patterns and fitness correlates of bovine brucellosis in african buffalo based on (1) 7 years of cross-sectional dis ...201525714466
evaluation of the sensitivity and specificity of an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for diagnosing brucellosis in african buffalo (syncerus caffer).brucellosis is a disease of veterinary and public health importance worldwide. in sub-saharan africa, where the bacterium brucella abortus has been identified in several free-ranging wildlife species, successful disease control may be dependent on accurate detection in wildlife reservoirs, including african buffalo (syncerus caffer). we estimated the sensitivity and specificity of a commercial enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (elisa) (idexx brucellosis serum ab test, idexx laboratories, westbro ...201525397998
