  • Our finding of high anti-2009 H1N1seroprevalences among school children and high anti-1918 H1N1 seroprevalences among the elderly suggest that further sustained viral transmission is not likely.

  • The age-stratified apparent seroprevalences for each infection are given in for Leptospira hardjo peaks at around 3 years of age and appears to be steady at

  • The estimated HSe across a range of true within herd seroprevalences are given in The herd-level sensitivities (HSe) for each of the three infections over a range of true seroprevalences assuming a perfect test specificity.

  • One of the clear implications of this estimation process is that the within herd sample sizes were small in terms of estimating within herd seroprevalences, which they were never intended for in the first place.

  • Therefore at the apparent seroprevalences observed the HSe is high.

  • One of the main advantages of this non-parametric test statistic is that it takes account of the heterogeneous distribution of the population at risk as positive and negatives are drawn from the same population. the herd-level sensitivity (HSe) and herd-level specificity (HSp) were explored for a range of true seroprevalences using the point estimates of the test parameters based on the priors in This study used cattle sera biobanked in 2000.

  • The study was under powered to detect seropositive herds at these low within herd seroprevalences and this is therefore likely to be an underestimate of the problem.

  • This study used banked sera from the Adamawa Region of Cameroon to investigate the seroprevalences and distributions of seropositive animals and herds.

  • We have estimated the seroprevalences of these three diseases using both a classical approach which allows for some adjustment for the multi-level design and a model based approach that allows incorporation of the multi-level design of the original sampling, the sensitivity and specificity of the diagnostic tests used and the uncertainties in these tests.

  • Further studies are clearly needed to study these important zoonoses and to be able to understand the human and animal interactions and the clinical significance of these seroprevalences in both the animal and for the human populations.
