Introduction: Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF) is a zoonotic viral infection transmitted mainly via CCHF virus-infected ticks between vertebrate hosts. The disease occurs in almost all provinces of Iran. This study investigated the CCHFV infection in hard ticks collected from livestock in the Sistan region of Sistan and Baluchestan Province,...

Schmallenberg virus (SBV) is a single-stranded RNA virus classified in the Prebunyaviridae family and Or-thobunyavirus genus. SBV is a teratogenic arbovirus, infecting pregnant ruminants, and results in offspring with congenital defects such as scoliosis, hydrocephalus, arthrogryposis, cerebellar hypoplasia and enlarged thymus. The purpose of this...

Introduction: Klebsiella as a part of normal intestinal flora could act as a source to transfer antibiotic resistance and virulence genes increasing virulence in the entrobacteriaceae family. On the other hand, meat is an important source for human infection with klebsiella. Although, Escherichia coli is described as causative agent of poultry Coli...
