Abstract

The standard test for equine leptospirosis is the microscopic agglutination test (MAT) which requires live cultures of Leptospirae and is thus time consuming. A rapid slide agglutination Test (RSAT) as tested successfully in humans and dogs, is proposed for horses. Serum samples from 180 adult...

AbstractFull Text

The seroprevalence of Leptospira spp. in mares with abortion problems in a stud in Lima was determined. Two blood samples were collected from each mare within a 2-month period for the detection of antibodies against 12 Leptospira serovars using the microaglutination test. The serovars included in...
