Abstract:

A total of 119 different clinical samples (nasal swab, conjunctival swabs, oral swabs and tissue samples) from sheep and goats were collected from the area under study for detection of PPR antigen by Sandwich-ELISA. Out of 119 clinical samples, 37 samples were found positive in small ruminants by S-ELISA, giving an overall incidence rate of 31.09 % (37/119). In sheep 33.33% and goats 30.52 % samples were detected positive. District wise incidence of PPRV in small ruminants differed non significantly. It was recorded in Bhavnagar (33.90%), Amreli (29.41%) and Rajkot (26.92%) districts. Month wise incidence of PPRV in small ruminants differed non significantly. It was recorded in month of October (29.41%), November (31.58%) and December (33.33%). Age wise incidence of PPRV in small ruminants differed non significantly. It was recorded in below 1 year of age group (39.29%), 1 to 2 year (28.95%) and above 2 years of age (16.00%). Sex wise incidence of PPRV in small ruminants differed non significantly. It was recorded in male (30.43%) and female (31.51%).Breed wise incidence of PPRV in small ruminants differed non significantly. It was recorded (36.62%) in nondescript breed and (22.92%) in descript breed. Out of 119 clinical samples, 37 samples including 13 Nasal swabs, 3 conjunctival swabs, 7 oral swabs and 14 tissue were found positive. PPRV antigen was detected by S-ELISA in tissue (66.67%), oral swab (43.75%), nasal swab (20.97%) and conjunctival swab (15.00%). Most suitable sample for virus isolation was tissue and oral sample.
