Superiority of the elisa enzyme linked immunosorbent assay technique over parasitological methods for detection of trichinellosis in slaughtered pigs in canada



Superiority of the elisa enzyme linked immunosorbent assay technique over parasitological methods for detection of trichinellosis in slaughtered pigs in canada



Canadian Journal of Comparative Medicine 49(1): 75-78



Trichinoscopic examination, pepsin-hydrogen chloride digestion and the ELISA [enzyme linked immunosorbent assay] were used in an epidemiological survey for the presence of Trichinella spiralis in slaughterhouse pigs over a period of 12 mo. The first 2 methods failed to detect any cases of trichinellosis in sows aged between 2-3 yr. The ELISA assay detected a 2.5% prevalence amongst the 2046 blood speciments tested. Foci of T. spiralis are localized in certain regions only. The discrepancy between the results obtained is likely to be due to the low infection density, undetectable by conventional methods. Apparently, pigs which are not confined indoors came in contact with the sylvatic strain of Trichinella which is known for low muscle invasiveness.
