EVALUATION OF AN ELISA KIT IN THE SEROLOGICAL DIAGNOSIS OF BABESIA BOVIS FOR EPIDEMIOLOGICAL STUDIES. An enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kit for detect antibodies to Babesia bovis, an intraerytrocitic bovine parasite was evaluated using known negative and positive samples and the results were compared with an indirect immunofluorescent antibody test (IFAT). Results obtained with field samples were used to estimate seroprevalence of B. bovis in an endemic area to the cattle tick… CONTINUE READING
