Abstract:

The present study was undertaken to screen the prevalence of Duck Plague virus (DPV) antibodies among the duck population of Assam. In this study, a total of 445 sera samples were collected from 10 different districts of Assam during August 2014 to November 2015. The sera samples were tested for presence of antibodies against duck plague virus (DPV) by employing Indirect-ELISA. Indirect ELISA was standardized using purified DPV produced in bulk in primary chicken embryo fibroblast (CEF) cell culture. Out of the 445 sera samples tested 291 were found to be positive for DPV antibody revealing a percent positivity of 65.39%. Among the 291 positive sera, 119 (26.74%), 112 (25.17%) and 60 (13.48%) showed a titre of 1:80, 1:160 and 1:320 respectively. It has been found that duck plague infection is widely prevalent among duck population of different districts of Assam.
