Abstract

The serum-neutralization test (SN), enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and the radial immunodiffusion enzyme assay (RIDEA) were compared for the detection of pseudorabies (PRV) antibodies in swine sera. A total of 1285 serum samples were tested. All three tests were considered useful in determining the PRV antibody status of swine on a herd basis, but available evidence supports the continued use of SN as the definitive test because of possible false positive reactions associated with ELISA and RIDEA.
