REAGEN EHDV Detection Kit is designed for the detection of Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease (EHD) virus in cervids. EHDV is an orbivirus that infects most wild and domestic ruminants. EHD is endemic in many countries, particularly affecting white-tailed deer in North America, with a morbidity and mortality rate as high as 90%. Deer, elk, and moose can seroconvert. Edema, hemorrhage, and ulcerations are seen in the mouth and lips in the acute form of the disease. In the chronic form of the disease, affected animals exhibit sloughing of the hoof wall, erosions, and scars in the rumen. Spontaneous abortions and stillbirths have also been reported in some epidemics. Duration of viremia in wild ruminants is 15-40 days post infection, with peak viremia seen from 6 days post infection (titers greater than 106 pfu/ml) in experimental animals
The REAGEN EHDV Detection Kit provides a simple, rapid, sensitive and cost-effective enzyme-based immunoassay (ELISA) screening method for detectng EHDV from animal blood sample(serum or plasma) . Bluetongue virus (BTV), a member of the genus Orbivirus, produces similar symptoms, and differential diagnosis is important to prevent widespread outbreak and economic loss. The ELISA methodis specific, without cross-reactivity between the serogroups of BTV and EHDV.
