Abstract

To investigate the foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) serotypes circulating in Uganda's cattle population, both serological and virological analyses of samples from outbreaks that occurred during 2012-2013 were performed. Altogether, 79 sera and 60 oropharyngeal fluid (OP)/tissue/oral swab samples ...

Abstract

By serum-virus neutralization tests, 244 naturally occurring strains of bluetongue virus were classified into 16 immunological groups. A prototype strain was selected for each group and a c.f. test used to establish their common identity. Cross-neutralization tests between the 16 cloned strains of...
