Seroprevalence of brucellosis in sheep in Sokoto City abattoir

Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences 9(14): 2696-2698

Serum samples from sheep collected from the Sokoto city abattoir were tested for brucellosis using the Rose Bengal Plate Test (RBPT), the Serum Agglutination Test (SAT) and the Competitive ELISA (Compelisa). A sero prevalence rate of 23.61% was recorded. The prevalence was higher among the females (26.71%) than males (15.30%) and also in those within the age band of 12-24 months (26.19%).
