  • Abstract:

    The preparation and use of a highly specific fluorescein-conjugated antiserum against bovine ephemeral fever virus are described. The demonstration of fluorescent cytoplasmic inclusions is a dependable diagnostic test. The test also revealed cross reactions between the viruses of Japanese bovine epizootic fever and Australian ephemeral fever and that of South African ephemeral fever.
