Diagnostic test for Bovine Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD NSP Ab)
Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is a severe, highly contagious viral disease. There are seven serotypes of the virus: A, O, C, SAT1, SAT2, SAT3 and Asia1. These are further subdivided into more than 60 strains. The importance of these serotypes is that protection against one serotype (e.g. through vaccination) will not protect against infection with another serotype. Different serotypes dominate in different parts of the world. Virus is excreted in breath, saliva, mucus, milk and faeces. FMD spreads rapidly from one animal to another. After an animal is infected with the virus, the first signs of illness usually appear within 2 to 14 days. Symptoms inculde: fever, blisters in the mouth and on the feet, weight loss, nasal discharge and drop in milk production. Pain and discomfort from the vesicles and erosions lead to other symptoms such as depression, anorexia, excessive salivation, lameness, and reluctance to move or stand.
Most affected animals will not die from FMD, but the disease leaves them weakened and unable to produce meat and milk the way they did before.
