    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study was to genetically characterize CPV isolates from Korea. The VP2 gene of 31 isolates was characterized by DNA sequencing and their phylogeny. Among the 31 field CPV isolates, 28 isolates were classified as type 2a and other 3 isolates as type 2b. The isolates in 2a-I, II and III subclusters have unique mutations. The isolates in 2a-IV and V subclusters had similar amino acid sequences to type 2a isolates from other parts of the world. The isolates in type 2b had similar amino acid sequences to type 2b isolates from Asia, Italy, and U.S.A. The molecular analysis of VP2 gene of CPV provided the useful information for the identification of CPV types and the understanding of their genetic relationship.

    ABSTRACT: The clinical utility of various specimens was examined for the early diagnosis of canine distemper (CD). Seven healthy dogs at 17 weeks of age were experimentally infected with a field isolate of canine distemper virus. The RT-PCR was carried out to detect CDV NP gene. Dogs showed mild fever and leukopenia, however, typical clinical signs of CD were not seen through the experimental period. CDV amplicons were detected more, earlier and for longer period in the conjunctival swabs than in the other samples employed. These results suggested that conjunctival swab samples, which are easy to obtain and non-invasive, would be the most suitable and practical specimen for the early antemortem diagnosis of CDV infection.

    ABSTRACT: To draw inferences about the sensitivity and specificity of the newly developed ELISA test for bovine paratuberculosis (PTB) diagnosis and posterior distribution on the prevalence of PTB in a province of Korea, we applied Bayesian approach with Gibbs sampler to the data extracted from the prevalence study in 1999. The data were from a single test results without a designated gold test. The prevalence estimates for PTB in study population ranged 3.2-5.3% for conservative and 6.7-7.1% for liberal, depending on the priors used. The simulated specificities of the ELISA close to one another, ranging 84.7-90.6%, whereas the sensitivity was somewhat spread out depending largely on the priors with a range of 46.4-88.2%. Our findings indicate that the ELISA method appeared useful as a screening tool at a minimum level in comparison to other diagnostic tests available for this disease in terms of sensitivity. However, this advantage comes at a cost of having low specificity of the test.
