Abstract

In this study, the presence of antibodies against Bluetongue Virus (BTV), Border Disease Virus (BDV) and Peste des Petits Ruminants virus (PPRV), were evaluated for the first time in Kyrgyzstan. A total of 655 serum samples were collected from healthy sheep (Jaydara breed) from different regions of Kyrgyzstan (144 from Issik Gol region, 208 from Narin region, 189 from Talas region and 114 from Çuy region). Commercially available competitive ELISA kits were used to detect antibodies against tested samples. Seroprevalence was found to be 36.94%, 7.32% and 35.11% against BTV, BDV and PPRV infections, respectively. Significant differences in antibody prevalences were found among both BTV-BDV and BDV-PPRV groups (P
