An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (Elisa) which is in detail described here has been adapted to trace antibody production in different fluids from infected calves. Seven calves were infected both with Dictyocaulus viviparus, and with several intestinal nematodes. Antibodies against an antigen prepared from Dictyocaulus viviparus adult worms were first detected during the 5th week post-infection, both in serum and nasal secretions, and were also observed in bronchial washings of the same… CONTINUE READING
