Preliminary studies in French Guyana with sheep experimentally infected with a local isolate of Trypanosoma vivax tended to show poor sensitivity and/or specificity of the monoclonal antibodies used in kits for the antigen-detection (Ag) ELISA for T. vivax, T. brucei, and T. congolense. To reevaluate these kits, 4 calves were infected at ILRAD, Nairobi, Kenya, with the same isolate. Blood samples were taken daily for 51 days, and examined directly on blood smears and buffy coat, and using Ag… CONTINUE READING
