An ELISA based on a recombinant Theileria annulata surface protein (TaSP) was evaluated for detection of antibodies in sera from cattle exposed to tropical theileriosis in Sudan. The reference positive samples, used in this study, were from Theileria-infected populations and consisted of 80 cattle from an endemic area in Khartoum State, with high antibody titers in the indirect fluorescent antibody test (IFAT). The reference negative samples were taken from non-exposed populations and consisted… CONTINUE READING
