Sery A., Sidibé C.A.K., Cissé O., Diallo M., Kone M., Waret-Szkuta A., Roger F., Thiaucourt F., Niang M.. 2015. Tropical Animal Health and Production, 47 (2) : p. 395-402.

A serological survey to determine the prevalence of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP) in Mali was carried out by using the competitive enzyme linkedimmunosorbent test (c-ELISA) on 8007 serum samples systematically collected from 199 cattle herds collected throughout the whole country. Results showed a national prevalence of 18.11 % at the individual level and 85.93 % at the herd level. Significant variations in the individual prevalence were observed between regions of the country and ranged from 4.63 % in Tombouctou to 54.88 % in Kidal. At the herd level, although there were variations between regions, a high prevalence was constantly observed ranging from 60 to 100 %, hence confirming the endemic nature of the disease across the country. The CBPP risk varied also between regions and was very low in Tombouctou (odds ratio (OR)=0.4) but very high in Kidal (OR=9.8). Similarly, the risk seemed higher in the animals of the over 3-year age group (OR=1.6) compared to the other age groups. It was also observed that there was a slightly higher risk (OR=1.3) in the females than in the males. This study confirms the presence of CBPP across the country and should help to elaborate strategies for the effective control of the disease. (Résumé d'auteur)
