Serodiagnosis of Histophilus ovis-associated epididymitis in rams.
Am J Vet Res 1988; 49(2):208-12AJ

Abstract

An ELISA for the detection of antibodies to Histophilus ovis was used to evaluate the association of epididymal lesions in rams with serologic response to His ovis. Comparison of ELISA results for His ovis in groups of rams with epididymal lesions with ELISA results of clinically normal rams (control group) revealed a significant difference (P less than 0.01) between the control group and those rams from which His ovis was isolated. A significant difference (P less than 0.01) was noticed between the control group and rams with lesions from which an organism other than His ovis or Brucella ovis was isolated. Additionally, a significant difference (P less than 0.01) was noticed in ELISA results between the control group and affected rams from which no organism was recovered and in which the epididymal lesion was not limited to the head of the epididymis. A difference was not detected in the His ovis ELISA results between control rams and rams with lesions associated with a B ovis infection or rams from which no organism was recovered and in which the epididymal lesion was limited to the head of the epididymis. The serologic findings in our study suggest that His ovis is more important in the development of epididymitis in rams than culture results alone would indicate.
