Potential Role for Fish in Transmission of Mycobacterium ulcerans Disease (Buruli Ulcer): an Environmental Study

Potential Role for Fish in Transmission of Mycobacterium ulcerans Disease (Buruli Ulcer): an... This study reports a potential role that fish may play in the transmission of Mycobacterium ulcerans disease (Buruli ulcer). Fish found positive for M. ulcerans DNA all appear to feed on insects or plankton and are believed to concentrate M. ulcerans from this usual food source. These observations provide additional data supporting our previous hypothesis on sources of M. ulcerans and modes of transmission. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Applied and Environmental Microbiology American Society For Microbiology
