Abstract

A immunological survey of paratuberculosis in dairy and Korean native cattles was conducted by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay(ELISA), complement fixation test(CFT), agar gel immunodiffusion test (AGID) and intradermal skin test(ID). Over all prevalence of pararuberculosis in cattles was 6.7%(109/1633) by ID, 7.5(205/2719) by AGID, 9.3% (245/2641) by CFT and 13.4%(363/2719) by ELISA. Prevalence in dairy cattle was higher than that of Korean native cattle. Of 70 ELISA-positive cattle, 23(28.6%) and 48(68.6%) cattles were classified as positive in the AGID and positive or suspect in CFT, respectively. Of 92 ELISA-suspect cattle, 32(34.9%) and 48(52.2%) cattles were classified as AGID-positive and CFT-positive or suspect, respectively. It was concluded that paratuberculosis is widespread in cattle of Korea.
