Abstract

A competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (C-ELISA) for the detection of antibodies against vesicular stomatitis virus New Jersey (VSV-NJ) and vesicular stomatitis virus Indiana (VSV-IN) was compared with the serum neutralization test (SNT) using 1,106 serum samples obtained from dairy cattle on sentinel study farms in the Poás region of Costa Rica. Kappa coefficients between the C-ELISA and the SNT were 0.8871 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 0.8587-0.9155) and 0.6912 (95% CI: 0.6246-0.7577) for the VSV-NJ and VSV-IN tests, respectively. These results indicate good to excellent agreement between the 2 tests under these conditions.
