Abstract

This research looks at the seroprevalence of anti-Salmonella antibodies in humans and chickens from Jamaica, West Indies. These antibodies were assessed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and showed that 11.3% (6 out 53) human samples and 95.3% (102 out of 107) IgY samples had the presence of anti-Salmonella antibodies. These results suggest the presence of Salmonellosis as a contaminant in humans and endemic state in birds, which not necessarily means active disease.

Keywords:
