Bayesian evaluation of three serological tests for the diagnosis of bovine brucellosis in Bangladesh.

Epidemiol Infect 2019 Jan;147:e73

Sydney School of Veterinary Science, The University of Sydney,425 Werombi Road, Camden, 2570 NSW,Australia.

We evaluated the performance of three serological tests - an immunoglobulin G indirect enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (iELISA), a Rose Bengal test and a slow agglutination test (SAT) - for the diagnosis of bovine brucellosis in Bangladesh. Cattle sera (n = 1360) sourced from Mymensingh district (MD) and a Government owned dairy farm (GF) were tested in parallel. We used a Bayesian latent class model that adjusted for the conditional dependence among the three tests and assumed constant diagnostic accuracy of the three tests in both populations. Read More

Association of interleukin-17 gene polymorphisms and susceptibility to brucellosis in Hamadan, western Iran.

Microbiol Immunol 2019 Mar 9. Epub 2019 Mar 9.

Brucellosis Research Center, Hamadan University of Medical Sciences, Hamadan, Iran.

IL-17is one of the most important inflammatory cytokines that stimulate immunity responses in humans infected with Brucella species, acting as a regulator that reduces release of γ-IFN, thus increasing resistance to brucellosis. Gene polymorphisms in the regulatory regions of cytokine-encoding genes affect the amountsof cytokines produced and play a fundamental role in infectious diseases. The aim of this study was to determine the association between IL-17 gene polymorphisms and susceptibility to brucellosis. Read More

Bacteria of the genus colonize a wide variety of mammalian hosts, in which their infectious cycle and ability to cause disease predominantly rely on an intracellular lifestyle within phagocytes. Upon entry into host cells, organisms undergo a complex, multistage intracellular cycle in which they sequentially traffic through, and exploit functions of, the endocytic, secretory, and autophagic compartments via type IV secretion system (T4SS)-mediated delivery of bacterial effectors. These effectors modulate an array of host functions and machineries to first promote conversion of the initial endosome-like -containing vacuole (eBCV) into a replication-permissive organelle derived from the host endoplasmic reticulum (rBCV) and then to an autophagy-related vacuole (aBCV) that mediates bacterial egress.
