Learn about IDEMBRU project’s outputs – with a toolbox focused on Brucella
Q. Are you concerned about the zoonotic disease Brucellosis?
Q. Do you want to know more about newly emerging Brucella species?
JRP IDEMBRU evaluated the presence of non-core Brucella in the European environment and wildlife.
The project developed a toolbox focusing on emerging Brucella species and reservoirs to ensure their rapid detection, identification and characterisation.
Their research can inform Brucella surveillance activities, which are essential to protect humans and animals against this zoonotic threat.
Some key project outcomes included:
– The IDEMBRU collaboration with PADI Web platform for epidemic surveillance to start on early warning systems for Brucella outbreaks in European countries.
– The IDEMBRU collaboration with OHEJP COHESIVE project to form a working group to evaluate the presence of B. canis in dogs and humans and to determine its pathogenic characteristics. They have prepared a White Paper on B. canis regarding the current epidemiological situation in Europe with further recommended actions.
