Occurrence of anti-Chlamydophila sp. antibodies in selected cattle populations in Poland
Bovine chlamydophilosis monitoring programs have not been run in Poland during the last decade, therefore the epidemiological status of the disease remains unrecognised. Recently observed animal movements, including international trade and import of livestock into Polish territory, support the necessity of serological surveillance of chlamydophilosis in representative subsets of the Polish bovine population. The aim of the study was the evaluation of Chlamydophila psittaci and Chlamydophila abortus seroprevalence in a subset of the bovine population and the comparative evaluation of serological techniques used in chlamydophilosis diagnostics (CFT, ELISA).
