Microbiology and Immunology
A cross-sectional seroprevalence survey of certain pathogenic zoonses in domestic rodents from Abou El Noumorus district, Egypt, was conducted. In addition, antimicrobial of selected essential oils (EOs) was performed and the Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) was measured. The overall prevalence of antibodies against tested organisms was determined. MIC of the tested EOs showed a promising result. This study provides a serological evidence about the occurrence of these bacteria among domestic rodents. This information is helpful for determining strategies for rat zoonotic diseases prevention and control. Also, it highlighted the effect of certain EOs against the isolated zoonotic pathogens.
