The frequency of bovine adenovirus infections occurring in cattle has been grossly underestimated up to the present day. Primary isolation of serotypes belonging to bovine subgroup II is cumbersome. Hardly any laboratory has used all 8 officially-recognised bovine serotypes in seroneutralisation-tests, which should be done when this type-specific method is used for serodiagnosis. The complement fixation test, known as group-reactive from human adenovirus serology, has failed to disclose the… CONTINUE READING
