Abstract

Equine infectious anemia virus (EIAV), equine influenza virus type 2 (EIV-2) and equine herpesvirus type 1 (EHV-1) are the causal agents of diseases that may bring economical losses. The aim of this present study was to estimate the frequency of antibodies against EIAV, EIV-2 and EHV-1 in herds of south Pará State, Brazil. Antibodies against EIAV, EIV-2 and EHV-1 were detected by AGID, hemagglutination inhibition method and serum neutralization technique (TCID50 =100), respectively. Blood samples of 572, 514, and 506 healthy equine unvaccinated against any of the three viruses were tested, respectively, for EIAV, EIV-2 and EHV-1. The following frequencies of serum reactors animals were observed: EIAV,1,34%; EIV-2, 35,79%; EHV-1, 45,45%. These results show that the agents are present in herds from Pará herds and the adoption of measures of management and prophylaxis should be prioritized, ensuring, thereby, the prosperity of brazilian's breeding equine.
