Increased articular fluid was present in the atlantoaxial and hip joints. The pericardial sac contained 45 Donkeys as reservoirs of AHSV Table 6. 7 approximately 100 ml of straw coloured fluid but there was no observed increase in peritoneal or pleural fluid, and the lungs appeared normal.

The cells were incubated for 30 min at 37°C in the presence of rabbit anti-donkey IgG conjugated with fluorescein isothiocynate. After 2 washes with Hank's solution the cell suspensions were examined under a UV microscope and the cells with fluorescing membranes counted. An indirect IF test was also conducted on aliquots of the cell suspensions, according to the method of Bolin et al. [1], to identify B lymphocytes carrying AHSV specific antibodies on their membranes. This involved incubating the cell suspensions with AHSV -4 for 2 h at 37°C.

Clinical appearance and rectal temperatures were recorded. Ten millilitres each of heparinised and non-heparinised blood were collected on alternate days until 92 dpv. Sera were decanted from the non-heparinised blood samples and assayed by VN test [4] for the presence of antibodies against AHSV 4. The red blood cell (RBC) fractions were separated from the heparinised blood samples by centrifugation at 3000 rpm for 10 min, washed, lysed and stored in 50/50 v/v glycerol and distilled water containing 5% phenol and 5% potassium oxalate (OCG).
