The control of enzootic abortion in sheep and goats in Cyprus

The control of enzootic abortion in sheep and goats in Cyprus

British Veterinary Journal 137(4): 411-415

Attempts at controlling chlamydiosis with an imported vaccine failed, largely owing to high cost and severe local tissue reactions. Trials of a locally prepared vaccine, without side effects, were instituted in 1970, and a compulsory scheme was implemented five years later. The percentage of abortions attributable to Chlamydia fell from 22.9% in 1975 to 6.3% in 1979.
