Abstract

© 2006 Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos. All rights reserved. The Neospora caninum is a protozoan that causes abortion, especially in cattle. The present study was carried out to determine the seroprevalence to Neospora caninum in llamas of the central zone of the country. A total of 175 serum samples of breeding female llamas of the Agrarian Cooperative Pachacútec were analyzed by the immunofluorescent antibody test (IFAT). The results confirmed the presence of Neospora caninum in llamas of the Central Sierra, but the seroprevalence was low (2.9 ± 2.5 %).
