Abstract

Enzootic Bovine Leukosis (EBL) has been known since the last century and nowadays it is considered cosmopolite. In Brazil, EBL has been described in many States. The objective of this paper is to divulge the results of the activities of EBL Diagnostic Laboratory at the Department of Medical Clinics of the Faculty of the Veterinary Medicine of the University of São Paulo between the years 1986and 1989. From 2708 samples of blood serum obtained from bovines raised in the State of São Paulo, 1162 samples showed a positive reaction by the agar-gel immune diffusion test (42.9%). It was verified the existence of reactor bovines in the 22 districts included in this study.
