Unveiling Precision Diagnostics: Molecular Tools in Human Brucellosis Identification

Jinal Patel [2]

Abstract: Brucellosis, caused by various species of Brucella, is a significant zoonotic disease affecting both humans and animals worldwide. The disease has a substantial impact on public health, particularly in regions where it is endemic. Transmission occurs through direct contact with infected animals, consumption of contaminated animal products like unpasteurized dairy, and occupational exposure among individuals working in close proximity to livestock. Its broad zoonotic potential makes it a considerable concern, necessitating comprehensive strategies for disease control and management. Accurate and timely diagnosis plays a pivotal role in controlling the spread of brucellosis and mitigating its impact. Early detection enables healthcare professionals to initiate appropriate treatment regimens promptly, reducing the risk of disease progression and chronicity. Moreover, accurate diagnosis is crucial for implementing preventive measures, such as vaccination campaigns for livestock, promotion of hygienic practices, and public health interventions aimed at curtailing the spread of the disease among both animal and human populations.
