circulation is proven towards this survey but none vaccination program was applied.
In 2001, at least 1,500 wild goats and gazelles (Gazella subgutturosa) with clinical signs similar to those caused by PPRV
infection died in Kavir National Park (Figure; online Technical Appendix Table, https://wwwnc.
Total 30% animals (sheep, 25% and goats, 35%) shown the presence of antibody against PPRV
Trading small ruminants at market places, where animals from different locations and sources are brought into close contact with one another, also promotes PPRV
The routes of transmission of PPRV
are through oral and respiratory secretions following close contact between infected and susceptible population (Lefevre and Diallo 1990).

No serologic and clinical reports of PPRV
infection in wildlife occurred in sub-Saharan Africa during 2005-2013, although seropositivity was recorded in Uganda, Ethiopia, and other countries in West and Central Africa before this period (4).
The sponsor receives the PPRV
upon approval of the rare pediatric disease product application and it can be sold without limitation.
Serum were collected from approximately 10% affected PPR affected goats for confirmatory diagnosis using PPR C-ELISA kit for PPRV
antibody detection along with the user manual obtained from ID Vet, France.
Initially a killed virus vaccine was employed for the control of disease  which was replaced by an attenuated PPRV
Forsyth and Barrett (1995) developed a highly sensitive PCR using F-gene primers for the detection of PPRV
The serum samples showing PI value of 50 or above were taken as positive for PPRV
antibodies, while those below value of 50 were considered negative.
