ABSTRACT:
Bovine brucellosis is found worldwide however, it has been eradicated from many countries it is one of the most serious diseases in developing countries. The highest prevalence is seen in dairy cattle. Conventionally, serological tests are used to screen for, or to confirm the disease. These screening tests are inexpensive, fast and highly sensitive but not necessarily highly specific. Serodiagnosis of bovine brucellosis was carried out in 64 sera samples of cattle using RBPT and STAT. The study revealed greater sensitivity of RBPT as compared to STAT. Considering sensitivity, specificity and ease in performing the test, it is suggested that a combination of RBPT and STAT can be used in the diagnosis of bovine brucellosis in order to control and eradicate the disease.
