Brucella IgM Antibodies

Brucellosis is an infectious disease caused by bacteria belonging to the Brucella genus. It primarily affects animals, such as goats, sheep, and cattle, but it can also be transmitted to humans. The transmission to humans often occurs through consuming unpasteurized dairy products or by direct contact with infected animals. Brucellosis can cause a range of symptoms including fever, fatigue, joint pain, and sweating. The Brucella IgM Antibodies test is a blood test used to detect the presence of Immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibodies against Brucella bacteria. These antibodies are produced by the body's immune system early in response to an infection.
