Abstract:

The Q-fever considered as occupational disease of persons dealing with livestock and their products, although, almost no data have been identified on the situation of this disease in Yemen, where 70 % of their population depending on agriculture and raising animals. An investigation for detection of antibodies against Coxiella burnetti in serum samples collected from about 50 veterinarian and butchers who worked in Dharma’s slaughterhouse carried out using commercial immunoblot test. Of 50 sample examined, three samples were positive (6%), one sample was Phase-1 positive, six samples were equivocal. The presence of Coxiella burnetti antibodies in processing Slaughter’s house workers may give in part preliminary indication of distribution of this disease in livestock raising community and the necessity of enactment of publicly and occupational actions, measures the limit, and prevent the devastating effects of this zoonotic disease on human and animals.
