a survey for antibodies to equine arteritis virus in donkeys, mules and zebra using virus neutralisation (vn) and enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (elisa).a seroepidemiological survey of donkeys in south africa (n = 4300) indicated a wide distribution and increasing prevalence of antibodies to equine arteritis virus (eav). donkey sera inhibited equine arteritis virus infection in virus neutralisation (vn) tests and in elisa specifically bound to a recombinant antigen derived from the bucyrus isolate of eav. these results suggest that donkeys have been exposed to the same serotype of this virus as circulates among horses. a good correlation existed ...19979031862
equine viral arteritis.equine arteritis virus (eav), the causative agent of equine viral arteritis (eva), is a respiratory and reproductive disease that occurs throughout the world. eav infection is highly species-specific and exclusively limited to members of the family equidae, which includes horses, donkeys, mules, and zebras. eva is an economically important disease and outbreaks could cause significant losses to the equine industry. the primary objective of this article is to summarize current understanding of ev ...201425441113
