The serological response induced by Brucella abortus strain 19 was evaluated in 52 Holstein females from a brucellosis-free herd using seven serological tests. Each calf was vaccinated at an age of 4 and 8 months old with 3 x 10(10) CFU B. abortus S19 and the antibody response was determined as the proportion of positive results to each test. The antibody(More)
An indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the detection of Brucella abortus antibodies in bovine bulk milk samples was evaluated. About 31 individual milk samples from B. abortus infected cows were diluted into bulk milk from a brucellosis free herd. Individual milk samples obtained from 96 negative or positive herds to ELISA or Brucella(More)
An indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for Brucella abortus antibodies detection in bovine milk and serum samples was validated. The assay use B. abortus smooth lipopolysaccharide as antigen, immobilized on a polystyrene matrix; milk diluted 1:2 or serum diluted 1:50, in a buffer containing divalent cation chelating agents EDTA and EGTA(More)
The diagnosis of bovine brucellosis using PCR in blood and milk samples from two dairy herds were compared to in vitro isolation, complement fixation test (CF), competitive ELISA (C-ELISA) in serum, and indirect ELISA (I-ELISA) in milk. Samples were obtained from 99 cows vaccinated with Brucella abortus strain 19, from a naturally infected herd (A), whose(More)
