Abstract
Interviews were obtained from 1,186 veterinarians in Illinois in 1966, 1968, and 1969 to study occupationally-related diseases. A decreasing prevalence of brucellosis was observed, with infection being associated with practice type. Most brucellosis infections occurred by the fifth year following graduation from veterinary college. Data suggest that an association does exist between Brucella infection and certain chronic health conditions. Of the veterinarians who completed health interviews, 251 had been inoculated against rabies as a result of exposure to the disease. Rabies exposures are also very frequent the first five years after graduation. A total of 93 veterinarians, about 9 percent, had suffered 99 occupationally related eye accidents, and 140 had experienced occupationally related bone fractures. (Contract No. 099-74-0098)
