Neospora Final Results Interpretation
- Additional diagnostic evaluation may be necessary with a positive result.
- To investigate Neosporosis as a cause for abortions in a herd, quantitative group comparisons between ‘aborting’ and ‘non‐aborting’ groups is recommended. If a statistically significant association exists between a positive antibody response in the ‘aborting’ group compared to the ‘non‐aborting’ group, it is highly probably that N. caninum is an active cause for abortion in the dairy herd.
- Probability values less than 0.10 indicate a likely causative relationship.
