Abstract:
In blood banks the sought for a series of relevant pathogens able to be transmitted by blood transfusions is widely implemented; however the presence of a series of pathogens in blood bank donations remained understudied. This is the case of some bacteria such as Leptospira spp. or Bartonella spp. Bartonella species are bloodborne, re-emerging organisms, capable of causing prolonged infections in animals and humans. Meanwhile, Leptospirosis is recognised as an emerging public health problem worldwide. Both infections are considered neglected tropical diseases.
