Background and Aim: Brucellosis is still one of the common infections in developing countries and  some developed countries. Diagnosis of the human brucellosis is mainly based on blood culture and serological tests.also in addition to determine the root cause of brucellosis, the aim of this paper is susceptibility assessment of three bcsp31, omp31 and omp25 in the diagnosis of brucellosis using PCR method among people with brucellosis.

Materials and Methods: In this study, All the patients were diagnosed with positive immunological tests such as Wright and ELISA. samples of blood were cultured (BACTEC) and incubated at 37°C for 5 days and then they were cultured for 3 days on Brucella agar. DNA was extracted from the colonies by Kit. The extracted DNA was used as template for accurate diagnosis of bacterial strains with gene-specific primers in PCR reactions bcsp31, omp31 and omp25.

Results and Conclusions: After the PCR reaction, results show that there is 100% PCR power for diagnosis of bscp31, 90.47% sensitivity for omp31 and 85.7% sensitivity for omp25 genes. Due to the high power and specificity and existence of bcsp31 in human pathogenic species, bcsp31 gene can be considered as more appropriate and confident target gene than omp31 and omp25 genes in the diagnosis of brucellosis in clinical samples using PCR method.
