Laboratory diagnostic procedures for human brucellosis: An overview of existing approaches
Context: Diagnosis of human brucellosis still challenges clinicians and scientists with several considerable aspects, particularly in endemic countries. The current study aimed at reviewing laboratory tests in the diagnosis of human brucellosis. Evidence Acquisition: A literature search was conducted in PubMed, Scopus, Thompson Reuters, and Mesh databases using keywords for articles published until December 2018. Seventy studies were selected for data collection. Results: The current inclusive review included information about the currently used advanced diagnostic tests to confirm the detection of human brucellosis. Conclusions: The article reviewed the methods for the diagnosis of human brucellosis and summarized developments for the future.
