Bibliographic information Dec. 1973, No.12, p.40-42. Illus.
Abstract An analysis of the causes of erysipeloid cases recorded between 1967 and 1971 in a large Russian meat-industry undertaking is followed by recommendations for the prevention of this disease: identification of infection sources; study of the routes of propagation; wearing of metal mesh gloves; organisation of first-aid posts to detect and treat microtraumata. As a result of these measures, it was possible to reduce erysipeloid cases from 101 in 1970 to 40 in 1972 in the plant under investigation.
