Seroepidemiological investigations on the horizontal and vertical transmission of maedi-visna virus infection in sheep

Seroepidemiological investigations on the horizontal and vertical transmission of maedi-visna virus infection in sheep

Revista Romana de Medicina Veterinara 13(2): 181-189

Serological investigations were performed in 2 Merino sheep groups (Group A=10 pregnant ewes aged 3-5 years and Group B=15 animals, 1-2-years-old) for the maedi-visna virus infection detection by agar gel immunodiffusion (AGID). It was shown that there was a cumulative incidence (CI) of 0.85/year and an incidence rate (IR) of 2.32 animals at risk/year in Group A and a CI of 0.27/year and an IR of 0.30 animals at risk/year in Group B.
