Abstract

A study was carried out to determine the prevalence of Equine Infectious Anemia Virus (EIAV) among horses of various clubs in the state of Selangor. A total of 94 serum samples was obtained from horses of various breeds, sex and age and tested for the presence of antibodies against EIAV using; (i) competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (CELISA) and (ii) agar gel immunodiffusion (AGID) test, to demonstrate the presence of antibodies against p26 recombinant gag protein. All horses sampled in this study were kept in stables and have access to paddock grazing. Horses have no history of contact with imported stocks. In this study none of the sera had antibodies against EIA virus. It is possible that the strict import policies imposed, and the almost non-existent importation of horses for the purpose of breeding has prevented the introduction of the disease into Malaysia.
