Abstract

The national BHV-1 eradication program in Hungary, using gE negative marker vaccines, has been going on since 2002. The authors estimated true prevalence of BHV-1 infection from serological results, by re-analysing the data obtained until 2006, considering also the proportion of false positive and false negative reactions attributable to sensitivity and specificity of the applied tests. This information allows more precise evaluation of the progress of eradication as well as the statistical assessment of heterogeneity of infection among farms, age groups and geographical areas and the risk of spreading. The authors suggest a new ecological parameter i.e. the crowding index to characterize the risk of spreading. The statistical methods presented in this paper are suitable tools to follow up the progress of eradication programs of any infectious disease, and their use may facilitate the in-time decisions for the modification of the programs.
