Reactivity of ostrich sera to Newcastle disease virus (NDV) by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and haemagglutination inhibition (HI) test were compared. Ten-month old ostriches seronegative by both tests were vaccinated with an oil-based NDV vaccine on days 0 and 11. Significant levels of reactive antibodies were first detected on day 11 by ELISA(More)
