Abstract:

Brucellosis is an important zoonotic disease and it cause significant reproductive losses in animals. The present study envisaged the appraisal of seroepidemiology of brucellosis in cattle and buffaloes by i-ELISA and RBPT. In present study a total 550 bovine serum samples screened for detection of Brucella specific antibodies. Out of 550 samples, 112 (20.36%) and 75 (13.64%) sera samples were detected positive for Brucella antibody by RBPT and i-ELISA, respectively. Species-wise seroprevalence was detected 21.67% and 14.55% in cattle and 18.50% and 12.33% in buffaloes by RBPT and i-ELISA, respectively. Sex wise higher rate of seroprevalance observe in Female 20.71% and 14.47% then males 18.81% and 9.90% by RBPT and i-ELISA, respectively. Overall sensitivity 74.67%, specificity 90.45% and overall agreement 88.21% of RBPT by comparing with i-ELISA for detection of Brucella antibodies.
