Serodiagnostic evidence of prevalence of bluetongue virus serotypes among sheep and goats in Tamil Nadu



Serodiagnostic evidence of prevalence of bluetongue virus serotypes among sheep and goats in Tamil Nadu



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 61(5): 497-498



Serum samples were collected from local breeds of sheep suspected of bluetongue virus infection. The agar-gel immunodiffusion test showed that 4 of 12 sera from sick animals, 38 of 43 from convalescent animals and 5 of 17 sera from recovered animals were positive for bluetongue antibodies. All of 14 samples from healthy animals were negative. Most animals had antibodies to more than 1 serotype.
