Abstract: Neospora caninum is an obligate intracellular parasite that can infect domestic and wild canids, ruminants, and horses. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association between the presence of antibodies to N. caninum and reproductive loss in beef heifers in the South Pantanal region of Mato Grosso, Brazil. A total of 1098 heifers were evaluated from breeding to calving with regard to reproductive performance, and serology for neosporosis was assayed by indirect immunofluorescence reaction. The preval… Show more

“…In Brazil, Andreotti et al (2010) observed higher seroprevalence of N. caninum in animals with gestational problems than in cows that had conceived, and reduced extraction rates in seropositive heifers compared to seronegative animals. …”

“…Portanto, não basta incluir a pesquisa sorológica para anticorpos anti-N. caninum sem o diagnóstico diferencial para T. gondii, devido à possibilidade de reações cruzadas como relatado por Dubey e Lindsay (1996). Também devido ao caráter subclínico da neosporose, é importante acrescentar a RIFI para a detecção de anticorpos anti-N. caninum na rotina das fazendas, pois segundo Andreotti et al (2010) existe uma correlação positiva entre a presença de anticorpos anti-N. caninum e a não concepção. Sendo assim, as fêmeas soropositivas podem ser identificadas e descartadas a fim de minimizar os prejuízos decorrentes de problemas reprodutivos.…”

“…Serological tests to identify infected animals, may require a higher sensitivity, lower cut-off than should be suggested for the diagnosis of bovine abortion. In the state of Mato Grosso do Sul the epidemiological survey was carried out with the cutoff of 1:50 (OSHIRO et al, 2007;ANDREOTTI et al, 2010). For these reasons we defined a cut-off with a tendency to give greater sensitivity to the test (1:50).…”

“…There are few studies that estimate cost and economic loss related to disease in animals (ALMEIDA et al, 2006;HOLANDA JUNIOR et al, 2005), in relation to Neosporosis, there are not reports about in the country (ANDREOTTI et al, 2010).…”
