Abstract   

    Antibodies against peste-des-petits ruminants (PPR) in sheep and goats were detected using counter immunoelectrophoresis. Out of 208 sheep and 209 goats serum samples, 27.88 and 31.10 per cent, respectively were positive for the presence of antibodies against PPR. Sex, age and breed wise results were also recorded. The results indicated that PPR is widely distributed in sheep and goats.

Key words: Peste-des-petits, ruminants, sheep, goats, counter immunoelectrophoresis, antibodies.
