Resumen

© 2000 Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos. All rights reserved. The seroprevalence ofbovine leucosis virus (BLV) in 261 dairy herds from 8 different areas ofthe Arequipa valley in southem Peru was evaluated. A total of 410 blood samples were tested for antibodies against BLV utiHzing indirect ELISA test and seroprevalence was found to be 12.8% (52/41 O) with 14.6% (38/261) ofthe herds infected. Seroprevalence was higher in the larger herds suggesting that management practice contributes to increased risk ofviral transmission. The overall seroprevalence ofBLV is low, making eradication of this disease in the Arequipa valley feasible.
