Article: Prevalência de anticorpos contra agentes virais e bacterianos em eqüídeos do Município de Monte Negro, Rondônia, Amazônia Ocidental Brasileira[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Sera from 174 equidaes (15 mules and 161 equines) of Monte Negro municipality, Rondônia State were analyzed against viral and bacterial agents. The serum sample corresponded the total equid population in the municipality considering a confidence interval of 99%, expected prevalence of 50% and absolute desired of 10%. For the viral agents, sera were tested by the Agar Gel Immunodiffusion Test (Equine Infection Anemia - EIA), Inhibition Haemagglutination Test (Equine Influenza 1 and 2 – EI–1 and 2), and Virusneutralizating Tests (Equine Viral Arteritis – EVA, Equine Herpesvirus 1 – EHV1, Vesicular Stomatitis – VS, Equine Encephalitis Eastern - EEE, Western - WEE and Venezuelan VEE). The diagnosis for brucellosis was made by Agglutination Tests and the Microscopic Agglutination Test was used for leptospirosis. The results showed positivity of 9.6% for EIA, 22.7% for HVE1, 19.9% for IE-1, 42.0% for IE-2, 21.0% for EEE, 11.3% for VEE, 3.4% for brucellosis, and 91.4% for leptospirosis. The most frequent serovars detected were Bratislava (10.5%), Icterohaemorrhagiae (8.7%), Autumnalis (8.7%) for equines and Patoc (26.6%) for mules. No one of the examined samples reacted to EVA, VS, or WEE.Brazilian Journal of Veterinary Research and Animal Science 01/2008; 45(4):269-276.
Article: Ocorrência de anticorpos anti-Brucella abortus e anti-Brucella canis em cães rurais e urbanos do Município de Monte Negro, Rondônia, Brasil Anti-Brucella abortus and anti-Brucella canis antibodies occurrence in rural and urban dogs from Monte Negro county[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Serum samples from 304 dogs living in urban or rural areas of Monte Negro County, Rondônia State, Brazil, were evaluated for Brucella abortus reactivity using the Rose-Bengal Test (RBT), Standard Tube agglutination Test (SAT), and Mercaptoethanol Test (MET), and for Brucella canis reactivity using the Immunodiffusion test (AGID) and Immunodiffusion test with 2-Mercaptoethanol (ME-AGID). Serum was considered positive if reacted in the MET or ME-AGID. Fifty-six (18.4%) dogs reacted by the RBT, and 12 (4.0%) by the SAT. One (0.3%) dog was positive by the MET. Eleven (3.6%) dogs reacted by the AGID, but with no confirmation by the ME-AGID. It the small occurrence of dogs reacting by the MET and the absence of reactivity by ME-AGID is emphasized.Ciência Rural 01/2005; 35(5):1216 - 1219. · 0.43 Impact Factor
