Abstract

Japanese  Encephalitis  (JE),  a  vector-borne  zoonotic
viral disease, is mostly prevalent in Asian countries.
The  objective  of  this  study  was  to  investigate  the
occurence  of  JE  virus  (JEV)  among  pigs  in  East
Sumba,  Indonesia.  Blood  samples  (n=52)  were
randomly  collected  from  52  apparantly  healthy  pigs
where  pig  population  was  high  in  East  Sumba.  The
samples were subjected for seroprevalence  study for
the  presence  of  antibodies  against  JEV  using
competitive enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (C-
ELISA).  Results  showed  that  53%  (n=28/52)  blood
samples  from  the  pigs  contained  antibodies  against
JEV.  This  finding  is  suggestive  that  the  JEV  is
circulating  among  pig  population  in  East  Sumba,
Indonesia.  The  data  may  help  in  designing  control
strategies of the JEV in the East Sumba, Indonesia.
