LP16674-1   Brucella suis
Brucella suis is the causative agent of swine brucellosis, a zoonosis affecting pigs. The disease typically causes chronic inflammatory lesions in the reproductive organs of susceptible animals or orchitis and may even affect joints and other organs. The most common symptom is abortion in pregnant susceptible hosts at any stage of gestation. Other manifestations are temporary or permanent sterility, lameness, posterior paralysis, spondylitis, and abscess formation. It is transmitted mainly by ingestion of infected tissues or fluids, semen during breeding, and suckling infected animals. In humans, it can cause undulant fever.

Since brucellosis threatens food supply and cause undulant fever, Brucella suis and other Brucella species (B. melitensis, B. abortis, B. ovis, B. canis) are recognized as potential agricultural, civilian, and military bioterrorism agents.

B. suis are gram-negative, facultative intracellular coccobacilli and therefore are capable of growing and reproducing inside of host cells, specifically phagocytic cells. They are also non-spore-forming, non-capsulated, and non-motile.

Brucella suis are differentiated into five biovars (strains), where bv. 1-3 infect boars and pigs and bv.1 and 3 may cause severe diseases in humans.In contrast, bv. 2 found in wild boars in Europe show mild or no clinical signs and cannot infect healthy humans, but do infect pigs and hares.

LP20003-7   Brucella
A genus of gram-negative, aerobic bacteria that causes BRUCELLOSIS. Its cells are nonmotile coccobacilli and are animal parasites and pathogens. The bacterium is transmissible to humans through contact with infected dairy products or tissue. Source: National Library of Medicine, MeSH 2006
