DBT’s initiative to fight brucellosis

Rapid fire:

  • DBT has initiated a Network Project on Brucellosis
  • Aim of the project is to develop vaccines and diagnostics
  • Creation of genome repository of Brucella stains
  • DBT along with ICAR is organizing the “Brucellosis 2016 International Research Conference”
  • The conference aims to serve as the forum to address the challenges of controlling brucellosis

Brucellosis is a zoonotic disease caused by Brucella endemic in many areas and is described by chronic infections, abortion and sterility in livestock. Brucellosis is caused by many species belonging to the genus Brucella. The disease is endemic throughout India and present in most livestock species, for example, cattle, goats, buffaloes, pigs, horses, camels and yaks. Brucellosis in livestock and its public health ramifications place US $ 3.4 billion (Rs. 22,800 Crore) per year on the Indian economy.Brucellosis_DBT

The Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India has initiated a Network Project on Brucellosis. The project aims at studying the epidemiological status of Brucella infections in India and to develop novel vaccines.

The objective of the project is to develop affordable diagnostics for Brucellosis. The project also aims at creation of genome repository of Brucella stains.

The Department of Biotechnology in collaboration with Indian Council of Agricultural Research is organizing the “Brucellosis 2016 International Research Conference”, including the 69th Annual Brucellosis Research Meeting, which will be held at the National Agricultural Science Complex in New Delhi, India from November 17 to 19, 2016.

The conference aims to serve as the premier international forum for researchers, veterinarians, medical doctors, and public health professionals interested in all aspects of brucellosis. In addition to scientific presentations and discussions, the conference intends to create a climate for participants to exchange ideas and explore collaborations to address the challenges of controlling brucellosis in endemic countries.
