The prevalence of antibodies to serovars of Leptospira interrogans in horses

The prevalence of antibodies to serovars of Leptospira interrogans in horses

Serum samples from 272 horses, some ill, were tested by the microscopic agglutination test for the presence of antibody to 12 serovars of L. interrogans. Sera from 41.5% of horses reacted to 1 or more of the serovars tested; the most common reactions were to L. interrogans-ballum (15.1%), L. interrogans-autumnalis (11.8%), L. interrogans-icterohaemorrhagiae (9.9%), L. interrogans-pomona (8.1%) and L. interrogans-hardjo (7.7%).

Therefore, the aim of the study was to determine the fre...
