Abstract

This study estimates the prevalence of antibodies against camel pox virus disease (CPVD) in three Egyptian governorates (Aswan, Assiut and fayoum). A total of 1200 blood samples were collected randomly from apparently healthy male camels of 1-3 years old during 4 successive months of various climatic conditions. Sera were separated and investigated using modified competitive Enzyme Linked immunosorbent Assay (C-Elisa) competitive immunoperoxidase (C-IP), and serum neutralization (SN) techniques. The results revealed that the number of positive camels sera by C-ELISA and C-IP were 164, 120 and 48 in Aswan, Assiut and Fayoum governorates respectively, and 148, 102 and 40 by SNT in the same governorates. The antibodies level was higher in young camels (one year old) during the winter season in Aswan and Assiut governorates. The highest titre of antibody was 64 by both SNT and C-IP and the percentage of inhibition was 80% by C-ELISA
