Since then, the disease has exclusively affected camel herds, and clinical evidence of the infection has not been demonstrated in any other animal hosts. In the frame of a control plan of the disease in the Archipelago, 864 equines located in the infected area were examined during one decade (2001-2010), of which a total of 26 (3%) were serologically positive but showed negative results at parasitological and molecular examinations. FreeCalc, an epidemiological tool to detect presence/absence of disease, showed that the population would be diseased at a confidence level of 99.916%. These results must suppose to implement the control plan against the disease including the equine population present in the surrounding area of the infected camel farms.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/48586||ISSN:||0737-0806||DOI:||10.1016/j.jevs.2012.07.018||Source:||Journal of Equine Veterinary Science [ISSN 0737-0806], v. 33 (6), p. 406-409|
