The study was conducted to evaluate and compare the parasitological (micro -haematocrit method, MHCT), serological (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, ELISA) and molecular (polymerase chain reaction, PCR) methods for diagnosis of trypanosomal infection in equines.
Recently, molecular diagnostic techniques particularly, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays appear to be a promising technique for the diagnosis of trypanosomal infection based on the detection of trypanosomal DNA in the blood samples.
Therefore, the present study was conducted to evaluate the PCR technique to detect the trypanosomal antigens in the naturally infected equines, using two sets of primers (TBR1/2), and to compare the PCR results with the parasitological (microhaematocrit centrifugation, MHCT) and serological (ELISA) techniques.
