A study published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine has found a natural treatment for brucellosis. In the study, researchers at the Institute of Veterinary Medicine and the National University of Mongolia assessed the antibacterial activity of the root extracts of Caryopteris mongolica (Bunge) against Brucella melitensis, the gram-negative bacteria that causes brucellosis, in mice.
In conclusion, the C. mongolica root extract could be a gentler and safer treatment and prevention alternative for Brucella infection.
