Abstract:
The present study was undertaken to corroborate the seroprevalence of leptospirosis among pigs of Central Kerala, India. A total of 103 serum samples collected from pigs were screened for the presence of anti-Leptospira antibodies by Microscopic Agglutination Test (MAT). A seroprevalence of 35.92 percent was observed. Among a battery of 10 Leptospira reference serovars used in the study, Leptospira interrogans serovar Pomona was identified as the most prevalent serovar (45.95 percent) in the sample population followed by, Grippotyphosa (24.32 percent), Canicola (13.51 percent), Icterohaemorrhagiae (10.81 percent) and Tarassovi (5.41 percent). The results reveal the significant prevalence of anti-Leptospira antibodies among pigs of Kerala.
