Application of Modern Techniques for Studying Bacterial Pathogens in Georgia Ekaterine ZHGENTI, Gvantsa CHANTURIA, Mariam ZAKALASHVILI, and Merab KEKELIDZE National Center for Diseases Control and Public Health of Georgia, Tbilisi, Georgia Abstract. Over the last few years several molecular methods for rapid identification and fingerprinting of different pathogens have been applied at the National Center for Disease Control and Public health of Georgia (NCDC). These modern techniques strengthen the NCDC Georgia laboratory’s capabilities to rapidly respond to urgent public health threats and assist in the detection and tracking of these diseases.
A total of 122 strains of Yersinia pestis were isolated in Georgia – 83 in the plain–foothill focus and 39 in the highmountainous focus; 46 strains are kept at the National Center for Disease Control and Public Health’s Microbial Library. Although no new isolates were obtained in recent years, the plague foci in Georgia are so close to populated areas that they must be under permanent control to be able to respond rapidly to emergencies. 1. Introduction Plague is one of the oldest recorded human diseases, and it likely originated in the Himalayan region during the pre-Christian era.
