Seroprevalence of zoonotic diseases among farm animals in Kvemo Kartli (Georgia)


Zoonotic diseases are an important cause of human morbidity and mortality; around 75% of recently emerging human infectious diseases are zoonoses. Herein we report the first seroprevalence study to include a range of emerging or re-emerging zoonotic pathogens of economic concern (including: Bacillus anthracis, Coxiella burnetii, Francisella spp., Brucella spp., and Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV)) affecting domestic animals (e.g., cattle, sheep, goat, and dog) in Georgia.


The purpose of this research was to study the seroprevalence of zoonotic diseases among farm animals in the Kvemo Kartli region of Georgia.
