The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic-test characteristics of microscopic examination of Ziehl-Neelsen stained faecal smears for acid-fast Mycobacteria (ZN-test) and serum-ELISA in cattle suspected of clinical paratuberculosis in the Netherlands. Results of all samples submitted for ZN-test and serum-ELISA between April 2003 and April 2006 to our laboratory were… CONTINUE READING
