Abstract:

A total of 750 serum samples from sheep and goats of Navsari, Valsad, Surat and Tapi districts of south Gujarat were screened for PPR specific antibodies using PPR competitive ELISA (c-ELISA). The Overall seroprevalence of PPR was found 62.40 % (468/750).Based on affected species, seropositivity was noted significantly higher in goats 65.77% than sheep 43.96 %.Among the districts, Surat topped the list (66.46 %) followed by Valsad (62.67%), Tapi (60.76%) and Navsari (60.24%).Higher seroprevalence rate (66.25%) was found males in comparison to their female counterparts (61.35%). Age wise higher seroprevalence (66.23%) was recorded among the age group of 1 to 3 years, followed by 3 years of age group (10.75%). In case of goats, maximum seroprevalence was recorded in Valsad district (67.34%) whereas least seroprevalence was recorded in Navsari (63.94%). Seropositivity was higher in male (69.71%) than the female (64.63%). The age group of 1 to 3 years was highest seropositive (70.63%) than above 3 years of age (27.77%). Among sheep, district wise seroprevalence of PPR was noted to be highest in Valsad (51.61%) and lowest in Tapi (27.77%). In female sheep, the seropositivity was noted higher having 44.89 % cases however; males exhibited a lower (38.88%). The highest rate of seroprevalence (45.67%) was observed in the age group of 1 to 3 years than (40.00%) recorded in remaining age groups. Month wise overall seropositivity found highest in October (72.88%) followed by December (63.86%).
