Anti-leptospirose agglutinins in equine sera, from São Paulo, Goias, and Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil, 1996-2001

Abstract: ABSTRACT.Equine leptospirosis can present a non-symptomatic form, an acute clinical form, or even develop chronically, causing reproductive alterations, such as abortion and recurrent uveitis. Since the prevalence of leptospirosis in several countries and regions is widely reported, the objective of this study was to verify the prevailing equine leptospirosis in different regions of Brazil. Sera from 1402 blood samples from horses of different age, sex, breed, and purpose were examined. These samples came from… Show more

“…There was higher seropositivity among females (33%) when compared to males (26.5%). These results reinforce the information reported by Langoni et al (2004), Dashliboron et al (2013), and Maleki et al (2015), who verified that 61.4%, 58.3%, and 87.5%, respectively, of positive reactions in their studies were females (P<0.05). The greater frequency in mares can be attributed to the different management of females and males (Langoni et al, 2004).…”

The greater frequency in mares can be attributed to the different management of females and males (Langoni et al, 2004). A possible hypothesis is that most male equines, especially those destined for sport, are castrated to make them more docile (Finger et al, 2011), are excluded from reproductive management, and when whole, most of the time are trained intensively, which reduces their contact with other groups and the possibility for contamination (Ellis, 1994).…”

“…Os sorovares Autumnalis e Castellonis tiveram altas frequências nos equídeos. Entretanto, Gomes et al (2007) verificaram 7% de equinos reagentes aos referidos sorovares; já Langoni et al (2004) registraram 16,97% para o sorovar Castellonis e Bezerra et al (2010), 13,66% de equinos reatores ao sorovar Autumnalis.…”

“…A leptospirose em equinos tem sido relatada em algumas regiões do Brasil, com resultados diferentes em animais examinados: 754/1402 em São Paulo (54%) (Langoni et al, 2004); 82/182 (45,05%) em Goiânia (Linhares et al, 2005); 24 (23%) na Bahia (Gomes et al, 2007), e 82/148 (55,4%) no Rio de Janeiro (Pinna et al, 2008).…”

“…Positivity for the serovars Icterohaemorrhagiae and Grippotyphosa suggest direct or indirect contact with excretions of rodents and other wildlife since they are natural hosts of these serovars (LANGONI et al, 2004;HASHIMOTO et al, 2007;CHIARELI et al, 2008;OLIVEIRA FILHO et al, 2014).…”
