Serological studies of antibodies against maedi-visna virus in sheep in Austria

Serological studies of antibodies against maedi-visna virus in sheep in Austria

Berliner und Munchener Tierarztliche Wochenschrift 103(2): 39-41

883 sheep from 68 flocks were tested for the prevalence of antibodies against Maedi/Visna-(M/V)virus. As serological method the Agar Gel Immunodiffusion Test (AGID) was performed, 9.5% of the blood samples were positive against M/V, 1.7% showed questionable results. The highest incidence of serum-antibodies showed the Texel (47.7%) and Milk sheep (26.1%). No antibody titers were found in Mountain and Suffolk sheep. Merino sheep had antibody titers against M/V in 2.6% and Mountain sheep crossbreeds in 1.7%.
