چکیده

The consumption of milk and unpasteurized dairy products contaminated with Brucella bacteria is one of the most important ways of brucellosis transmission to humans. The principal goal of this study was to determine the prevalence of Brucella abortus (B. abortus) and Brucella melitens (B. melitens)in unpasteurized dairy products consumed in Shiraz province. In this study conducted in 2016, 238 unpasteurized dairy products including 48 raw milk, 48 yogurt, 46 cheeses, 48 dough and 48 ice cream samples, were purchased from the retail market in Shiraz province and were examined by a specific PCR assay. This study showed positive 5/04% out of 238 unpasteurized dairy products including 9 out of 48 (18/75%) raw milk samples and 3 out of 48 (6.25%) yogurt samples). Contamination was not detected in samples of dough, cheese and traditional ice cream. The results also showed that among 12 positive samples, 6 samples were contaminated with B. abortus (including 4 milk samples  and 2 yogurt samples), 2 samples were contaminated with B. melitensis (including 2 Milk samples) and 4 samples were contaminated simultaneously with B. abortus and B. melitensis (including 3 milk samples and 1 yogurt sample). The present study suggests the unpasteurized dairy products as the major sources of brucellosis in Shiraz province, South of Iran; thus, to prevent brucellosis in human, the consumption of pasteurized milk and dairy products is highly recommended.

BACKGROUND Yersinia species, especially Yersinia enterocolitica, are considered as the most prevalent milk-borne pathogens. Several serological and molecular techniques have been developed for rapid and safe diagnosis of yersiniosis. OBJECTIVES This study was carried out to assess the prevalence rate of Yersinia species, especially Y. enterocolitica, in milk and dairy products in Isfahan prov...

materials and methods: a total of 285 commercial and traditional dairy products as well as 267 pasteurized and raw milk samples were collected during one year. the samples were studied by culturing and the positive-culture samples were investigated using pcr techniques. results: the results of culture showed that 52 (9.42%) and 28 (5.07%) of the total 552 milk and dairy samples were positive fo...

Two new primer sets of a 766- and a 344-bp fragment were introduced into the conventional Bruce-ladder PCR assay. This novel multiplex PCR assay rapidly and concisely discriminates Brucella canis and Brucella microti from Brucella suis strains and also may differentiate all of the 10 Brucella species.
