AB  - Introduction: Brucellosis is a neglected zoonosis of public health importance.
      This study was conducted to determine the prevalence and risk factors of
      brucellosis among slaughtered cattle as well as challenges to the protection of
      abattoir workers in Nigeria. Methods: A slaughterhouse study was conducted in a
      major abattoir in Ibadan from March to August, 2013. To diagnose brucellosis,
      serum samples from 1,241 slaughtered cattle were tested using Rose-Bengal test
      (RBT) and competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (cELISA); again, 57 milk 
      samples were tested with milk ring test (MRT) and indirect ELISA (iELISA).
      Furthermore, a survey on the usage of personal protective equipment (PPE) and
      challenges to its use by abattoir workers was done. Data were analysed using
      Stata 12. Results: Seroprevalence by RBT was 7.8%; 77.3% (75/97) of these were
      corroborated by cELISA. Prevalence in milk samples by MRT and indirect ELISA were
      33.3% and 3.5%, respectively. Sex (OR: 2.5; 95%CI:1.3-4.5) was the factor
      significantly associated with Brucella seropositivity. None of the abattoir
      workers used standard protective overalls; while, 99.6% of the meat handlers and 
      84.1% of the butchers worked barefoot. Most of the workers (75.7%) wore no
      protective gloves. The respondents agreed that provision of free PPE and
      sanctions against non-users would encourage its use. Conclusion: Our findings
      indicate moderate prevalence (7.8%) of bovine brucellosis with sex of cattle
      being a risk factor. A notable barrier to better protection of abattoir workers
      against brucellosis is perceived inconvenience arising from use of gloves.
      Therefore, preventive and control measures against brucellosis must include
      education and use of PPE among abattoir workers.
