  1. Results for the average probability that an individual Bm-infected flock would test positive for each flock size category j (PUPosj), for the average probability that an individual flock will test positive for Bm (ABTSeU) and for the overall sensitivity (ABTSe) of the passive abortion testing system (ABT) in Switzerland (CH) and in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BH). All results base on the true (CH) and a hypothetical (BH) disease free situation.
