Abstract

A study of seroprevalence of caprine arthritis encephalitis virus (CAEV) in a native goat population of an extensive system in the northwest of Yauyos, Lima (Peru) was carried out. Serum samples (n = 533) were collected from adult male and female goats for detection of antibodies against CAEV by agar gel immunodiffusion test. None of the animals were reactors to CAEV indicating that the tested animals were not exposed to the CAEV and suggested a low or absence of the infection in native goats in this area.

Ante el riesgo de introducción del agente viral a una población de caprinos alta-mente susceptibles se recomienda no intro-ducir caprinos a la zona sin previo descarte serológico de AEC y reiniciar la vigilancia epidemiológica de la AEC a nivel nacional a fin de que sus datos puedan servir de base para establecer un programa de erradicación de la infección en el país.
