Diagnosis of bovine sarcocystosis by immunoflourescent antibody technique

Diagnosis of bovine sarcocystosis by immunoflourescent antibody technique Studies on sarcocystosis showed an overall sero-prevalence of 79.46% by IFAT which included 80.14% in cattle and 78.59% in buffaloes out of 716 animals screened.

Abstract

Studies on sarcocystosis showed an overall sero-prevalence of 79.46% by IFAT which included 80.14% in cattle and 78.59% in buffaloes out of 716 animals screened. The antibody titers of six randomly selected positive samples from different age groups of <2, 2–5, 5–10 and >10 years old bovines ranged from 16 to 64, 32 to 256, 32 to 128 and 16 to 64 with an average titer of 32 ± 2.92, 106.6 ± 34, 74.6 ± 17 and 34.6 ± 9, respectively. Significantly, lower rates of infection were observed in the cattle of below 2 years (60%) age and an ascending rate of infection in the age groups of 2–5 years (81.33%), 5–10 years (80.52%) and above 10 years (90.9%).
