Abstract

Bayesian inference was used to estimate the true seroprevalence of enteropathogenic Yersinia in pigs in Finland. Sensitivity and specificity of the diagnostic test were also estimated. One-hundred-seventy-two pigs of different ages were sampled and analysed for antibodies against enteropathogenic Yersinia outer proteins by a commercially ELISA test.

The True Seroprevalence of Enteropathogenic Yersinia in Pigs, a Hayesian Approach

Portland, Maine, USA

Bayesian inference was used to estimate the true seroprevalence of enteropathogenic Yersinia in pigs in Finland. Sensitivity and specificity of the diagnostic test were also estimated. One-hundred-seventy-two pigs of different ages were sampled and analysed for antibodies against enteropathogenic Yersinia outer proteins by a commercially ELISA test.
