The results of an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) For the detection of antibody against Mycoplasma mycoides subsp mycoides are presented. Antibody was detected in the sera of cattle at least 19 months after recovery from an infection and at least 23 months after vaccination. Almost half the sera of some animals in an area of Nigera where contagious bovine pleuropneumonia is enzootic contained antibody. Antibody was rarely detected when the same sera were examined by other established serological tests, emphasising the sensitivity of the ELISA.
