Abstract

© 2002 Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos. All rights reserved. The seroprevalence of bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BVDV) and border disease virus (BDV) in serum samples of alpacas (n=200), bovine (n=38) and ovine (n=45) of a rural community of Cusco, Perú was carried out by virus-neutralization test. The 11.5 ± 4.4% (23/200) and 9.5 ± 4.1% (19/200) of alpacas had neutralizing antibodies against BVD and BD virus. The 73.7 ± 13.9% (28/38) and 76.3 ± 13.5% (29/38) of bovine and the 13.3 ± 9.9% (6/45) and 15.5 ± 10.6% (7/45) of ovine had antibodies to BVDV and BDV respectively. These results confirm the presence of pestiviral infection in ruminants of a mixed breeding system in a rural community.
