A rapid assay for detecting antibody against Bluetongue virus with a latex agglutination test using recombinant VP7 antigen. (58/204)

A latex agglutination test (LAT) for detecting antibody against Bluetongue virus (BTV) in ruminants was developed using latex beads coupled with recombinant VP7 protein. Compared with competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), the specificity and sensitivity of the LAT were 99.0% and 93.0%, respectively. There was excellent agreement between the results obtained by competitive ELISA and the LAT (kappa = 0.930). Because it is rapid and easy to use, the LAT could be used for BTV antibody detection, especially for screening many serum samples.  (+info)

Bluetongue studies with sentinel cattle in Kenya. (64/204)

Bluetongue antibody of 19 different serological types was found in a group of sentinel cattle near Nairobi. A continuous challenge by these 19 strains occurred each year in this location. The sero-conversion rates were shown to vary from year to year and rainfall had no obvious effect upon the conversion rates. The 19 different strains of virus were also shown to be active at five widely scattered sites in different parts of the country.  (+info)
