Studies on the relationship between Yersinia enterocolitica IX and Brucella abortus agglutinins in naturally infected animals. Academic Article uri icon


  • Attempts were made to define the Brucella abortus and Yersinia enterocolitica IX infection status of animal populations by means of selected agglutination tests. The Brucella abortus O, the Yersinia enterocolitica IX OH and the Y enterocolitica IX H agglutinin titres were measured in a large number of cattle, goat and pig sera In the goats and, to a much lesser extent, the pigs, the relationships between these titres suggested that Yersinia infection was common. In contrast, the results from the cattle sera were complex and tended to indicate the presence of both Yersinia infection and brucellosis.
