The authors reviewed over 50 publications in which the sensitivity and specificity values of assays used for the detection of exposure to Brucella abortus had been examined. The sum of the sensitivity and specificity values for each test was averaged to give a performance index (PI) and allow for a comparison between the different methodologies. A score of 200 was perfect. Based on the PI, the buffered antigen plate agglutination test (BPAT) rated highest (PI = 193.1) among the conventional… CONTINUE READING
