Zinc sulphate turbidity test in the diagnosis of hypogammaglobulinemia in kids

, : Zinc sulphate turbidity test in the diagnosis of hypogammaglobulinemia in kids. Indian Veterinary Journal 69(7): 589-590

Immunoglobulin level of six normal healthy control kids was found to have 18.142 +- 0.338 mg/ml and the 22 test kids were 16.784 +- 0.141 mg/ml. Out of 22 test kids (27.27%) having gammaglobulin level ranging from 11.75 mg/ml to 15.50 mg/ml suffered from enteritis, pneumonia but ultimately recovered. Four kids (18.18%) had less than 11 mg/ml of gammaglobulin in serum and suffered from Escherichia coli infection and died.

The haemoglobin content of haemolysed blood samples from calves was measured by mixing 0.1 ml serum with 0.04% ammonium hydroxide solution, and comparing the colorimetric reading of the mixture with that of serum from non-haemolysed blood. The sub...

Failure of passive transfer of maternal immunity occurs in calves that fail to absorb sufficient immunoglobulins from ingested colostrum. The zinc sulphate turbidity test has been developed to test bovine neonates for this failure. The specificity...

The serum of a case of hyperglobulinaemia with negative thymol and zinc sulphate turbidity reactions was studied. The serum when added to pathological sera with high turbidity values brought about a marked reduction in the original turbidity value...

Since diarrhoea due to colibacillosis is commonest afte...
