From: A large seroprevalence survey of brucellosis in cattle herds under diverse production systems in northern Nigeria

State n RBPT pos. (%) c-ELISA pos. (%) FP (%)
Adamawa 1827 892 (48.8) 510 (27.9) 382 (42.8)
Kaduna 1870 511 (27.3) 385 (20.6) 126 (24.7)
Kano 1048 332 (31.7) 242 (23.1) 90 (27.1)
Overall 4745 1735 (36.6) 1137 (24.0) 598 (34.5)
  1. Key:
  2. n: Sample size.
  3. RBPT: Rose-Bengal plate-agglutination test.
  4. c-ELISA: Competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.
  5. FP (%): False positives (proportion of animals that were RBPT positive but c-ELISA negative).
