Ebubekir Ceylan, Mustafa Berktas, Ihsan Keles and Zahit Agaoglu

Abstract:
The present study was carried out to determine the seroprevalence of antibodies to C. burnetii in cattle and sheep in the east of Turkey. Serum samples collected randomly from 92 cattle and 92 sheep were examined by ELISA (Vircell-SL, Spain) to detect IgG antibodies against C. burnetii phase II antigen. Seropositivity was observed in 16.3% of the cattle and in 5.4% of the sheep. Coxiellosis has an important seropositivity in both cattle and sheep and it can cause serious health problem in humans living in Eastern Turkey.
