Various domestic animals such as camels, goats, sheep, cows as well as humans are affected by brucellosis. It is caused by the Brucella species such as Brucella melitensis in small ruminants, Brucella abortus in cattle, and Brucella canis in dogs [4–5] Brucella species are Gram-negative, small coccobacillus, slow-growing and intracellular bacteria that are capable of surviving

Brucella – Virulence Factors, Pathogenesis and Treatment

Brucellae are Gram-negative, small rods infecting mammals and capable of causing disease called brucellosis. The infection results in abortion and sterility in domestic animals (sheeps, pigs, rams etc). Especially dangerous for humans are: Brucella melitensis, Brucella suis, Brucella abortus, and Brucella canis that trigger unspecific symptoms (flu-like manifestation). Brucella rods are introduced via host cells, by inhalation, skin abrasions, ingestion or mucosal membranes. The most important
