Abstract
During a recent outbreak of contagiOUS bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP) In Kenya, three tests used for diagnosis of this disease were re-evaluated. It was found that the slide agglutination serum test (SAST) in conjunction with agar gel diffusion test (AGT) for circulating antigen, detected 100% of cattle with CBPP whereas the complement fixation test failed to detect 6 % of these cases (Shifrine and Gourlay, 1966, Bull. Epiz. Dis. Afr., in press).
