In order to investigate the serological response to Chlamydophila psittaci in birds, we evaluated the presence of neutralizing antibodies against C. psittaci in 250 sera of pigeons collected in Emilia-Romagna Region (Northern Italy) and we have correlated the results to those obtained by microimmunofluorescence test (MIF). C. psittaci antibody prevalence detected by MIF was 40%. Neutralizing antibodies were specific for C. psittaci and were present in 22 out of 100 MIF positive sera.

Abstract

In order to investigate the serological response to Chlamydophila psittaci in birds, we evaluated the presence of neutralizing antibodies against C. psittaci in 250 sera of pigeons collected in Emilia-Romagna Region (Northern Italy) and we have correlated the results to those obtained by microimmunofluorescence test (MIF). C. psittaci antibody prevalence detected by MIF was 40%. Neutralizing antibodies were specific for C. psittaci and were present in 22 out of 100 MIF positive sera.
