The prevalence of antibody to contagious caprine pleuro pneumonia mycoplasma strain f 38 in some wild herbivores and camels in kenya

Sera of 11 species of wild herbivores were tested for antibody to Mycoplasma strain F38 which causes contagious caprine pleuropneumonia (CCPP) in Kenya. Antibodies were found in buffalo (Syncerus caffer) (32%), impala (Aepyceros melampus) (10%) and camels (Camelus dromedarius) (49%) but not in bushbuck (Tragelaphus scriptus), eland (Taurotragus oryx), Grant's gazelle (Gazella granti), kongoni (Alcelaphus buselaphus cokei), oryx (Oryx beisa), Thomson's gazelle (G. thomsonii), waterbuck (Kobus defassa) and wildebeest (Connochaetus taurinus). The infection of a single Thomson's gazelle resulted in the development of antibody but no clinical disease. A goat kept in contact did not become infected.
