Seroprevalence of brucellosis in sheep slaughtered during rituals



Seroprevalence of brucellosis in sheep slaughtered during rituals



Indian Veterinary Journal 82(7): 801-802



This study was undertaken to determine the prevalence of brucellosis among sheep slaughtered during the hajj season. Blood samples were collected from 374 sheep, and rose bengal agglutination test (RBT) and ELISA were carried out. 29 samples were positive in the RBT, with a seroprevalence of 7.75%. 43 samples were positive in ELISA. 24 of these samples were also positive in RBT. The ELISA had comparable sensitivity and specificity to RBT but detected more positive samples than RBT.
