Abstract

FREITAS, José de Arimatéa et al. Zoonotic brucellosis risk associated with clandestine slaughtered porks. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 2001, vol.35, n.1, pp. 101-102. ISSN 0034-8910.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89102001000100015.

To determine the sanitary risk to human health, 59 sera samples of clandestine slaughtered porks were examined through serologic procedures and have demonstrated to have anti-Brucella antibodies and antibodies titles suggestive of brucellosis infection. Surveillance measurements are recommended to prevent potential risk of zoonotic infection.
