The adverse effects of ethanol on Brucella melitensis have not been studied previously. In this study, a new model of B. melitensis infection was used in the setting of chronic ethanol administration in rats. It was found that the chronically ethanol-receiving rats exposed to B. melitensis infection had significantly greater numbers of B. melitensis in their spleen and liver than the rats in the control group.
