Abstract:

A total of 360 pig carcasses were examined through meat inspection in different market places of Dimapur and Kohima district of Nagaland, India in the month of March, 2019. Out of which, 6 (1.67%) were found positive for porcine cysticercosis with visible cysts. The serum samples were collected from 300 pigs and out of which 10 (3.00%) serum samples were found positive for Cysticercus cellulosae antibody. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay was performed to confirm Cysticercus cellulosae and to validate the results of meat inspection. Oligonucleotide primers targeting against the large subunit rRNA gene (TBR primers) of Taenia solium were used in this study. On reactivity in PCR test, the TBR primers yielded products of 286bp in cysticercosis positive cases.
