leptospirosis as the most frequent infectious disease impairing productivity in small ruminants in rio de janeiro, brazil.despite the importance of small ruminants breeding in developing countries, milk/meat productivity remains unsatisfactory. infectious diseases, such as leptospirosis, brucellosis, and small ruminant lentiviruses (srlvs), contribute to this scenario. the objective of the present study was to determine the role of each of these diseases in the productivity of small ruminants breeding in rio de janeiro, brazil. in goats, 343 samples were tested for leptospirosis, 560 for brucella abortus, and 506 f ...201121898182
a serological study on brucella abortus, caprine arthritis-encephalitis virus and leptospira in dairy goats in rio de janeiro, brazil.in spite of the large number of goats found in several developing tropical countries, milk production remains unsatisfactory. the occurrence of infectious diseases, such as leptospirosis, brucellosis and caprine arthritis-encephalitis (cae) may in part be responsible for sub-optimal production. in this study, 1000 serum samples were tested for leptospirosis, 953 for brucellosis and 562 for cae. all tested flocks presented at least one seroreactive animal for leptospirosis and for cae. reactivity ...200716455276
