About Q Fever/C. burnetii

C. burnetii has a worldwide occurrence with an increased prevalence in countries with dense cattle, sheep and goat populations. There are two independent infection cycles: wildlife and domestic, via ticks.

The animal infection, also called coxiellosis, is characterised by a subclinical phase with a relatively rare and sudden epidemic appearance of abortion.

Use of ELISA testing allows for the serological diagnosis of Q fever by detecting C. burnetii-specific antibodies. In fact, because of their ease and rapidity, ELISA tests have become the major techniques applied for herd monitoring on a routine basis.
