Bacteriologic evaluation of serologic test procedures for the diagnosis of brucellosis in problem cattle herds



Bacteriologic evaluation of serologic test procedures for the diagnosis of brucellosis in problem cattle herds



American Journal of Veterinary Research 27(118): 689-694



A bacteriologic evaluation of several diagnostic procedures suggested for use in brucellosis problem cattle herds was conducted in New York and Vermont. The results of the standard tube-agglutination test failed to classify 39% of the culture-positive cattle as reactors. With the criteria used for evaluation, the complement-fixation test proved superior to all other procedures. None correctly identified all infected cattle. Of the brucella isolates, 82% were from vaccinated cattle. These studies indicate that the Judicious use of several supplemental tests when applied to a population in an area of low incidence is proving of great assistance to the achievement of eradication of brucellosis.
