Abstract:

The addition of the Brucellosis antiphage serum to the nutrative mediums significantly improves the bacteriological diagnosis of Brucellosis in humans because it increases the number of isolations possible 1.7 times it is possible to obtain a hemo-culture of Brucellosis much later in the period of illness and it accelerates the growth of the first generation of Brucellosis, as in liquid mediums, so in solid. The work leads to the recommendation of the wide application of an antiphage serum for the improvement of the bacteriological diagnosis of human Brucellosis.
