Greca, HSilva, A. VLangoni, H

The survey analyzed 100 samples of serum collected from dogs at the Center for Zoonoses Control of Bauru, randomly chosen. In the study, 65% of the samples were positive for leishmaniasis and 14% for neosporosis. The association between the presence of antibodies by the reaction of indirect immunofluorescent antibody test (IFAT) in the detection of anti-Leishmania and anti-Neospora antibodies was examined by the Fischer Exact Test (P=0.41), indicating no association between the results for Leishmania sp. and Neospora caninum (α=0.05). The absolute frequencies of the IFAT in the detection of antibodies anti-Leishmania and anti-Neospora caninum were analyzed using the Spearmann correlation coefficient for Leishmania and N. caninum titters, r=0.0975 and P=0.33, which did not indicate significant correlation between the titters for both pathogens.(AU)
