Abstract:

Bluetongue (BT) is an infectious, non-contagious disease of domestic and wild ruminants. Bluetongue virus (BTV) causes severe disease in sheep, which is transmitted by insect vector belonging to Culicoides spp. It is particularly a viral disease of sheep, occasionally affecting cattle, buffaloes, goats, camels and other wild ruminants. In present study, out of 382 sheep serum samples, 150 (39.26%) and 130 (34.03%) were positive respectively by c-ELISA and i-ELISA. On comparing relative sensitivity and specificity of i-ELISA to c-ELISA was 86.67 and 100.00 per cent, respectively. Overall agreement between both the tests was 94.76 per cent.


Keywords: Sheep, Bluetongue, c-ELISA, i-ELISA, Seroprevalance.
