Bovine coronavirus infections in calves and their detection in the laboratory



Bovine coronavirus infections in calves and their detection in the laboratory



Proceedings XIIth World Congress on Diseases of Cattle, the Netherlands Volume I: 222-227



Comparison of ELISA with the neutralization of indirect immunofluorescence test in the diagnosis of coronavirus infection in calves suggested that the former was more sensitive, but that either test was suitable for large scale field work. Clinical signs following experimental infection of SPF calves with different coronavirus isolates varied from slight inappetence to severe diarrhoea. All calves that developed diarrhoea shed virus for 4-7 days.
