Abstract

© 2005 Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos. All rights reserved. The objetive of this study was to detect antibodies against vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) in collared peccaries (Tayassu tajacu) from farms of Iquitos and Pucallpa, Peru. Blood samples were collected in animals olders than 6 months of age (pregnant females were not included) from a farm in Iquitos (n = 21) and from four farms in Pucallpa (n = 47), for detection of antibodies against Indiana 1 and New Jersey serotype of VSV by viral neutralization test. No specific antibodies against both serotypes of VSV were detected, indicating that the peccaries were not exposed to VSV, and suggesting absence of the infection in those animals.
