A simple, rapid and sensitive competitive monoclonal antibody-based ELISA for the detection of antibodies directed against swine vesicular disease virus (SVDV) was developed. The ELISA was validated using field sera originating from SVDV-infected and non-infected Dutch pig herds, reference sera obtained from the Community Reference Laboratory for Swine Vesicular Disease at the Institute for Animal Health, Pirbright Laboratory, UK, and sera from animals infected experimentally. When testing 4277 sera originating from non-infected Dutch pig herds and collected as part of the national screening program, this ELISA had only 0.6% false positive results, whereas approximately 2% of false positive results were obtained with a conventional blocking ELISA used until recently. A sensitivity relative to the virus neutralisation test of > 97% was achieved when testing sera collected from Dutch pig farms where an outbreak of SVDV had occurred. All international reference sera scored consistently correct. Sera collected sequentially from pigs experimentally infected with SVDV isolates representing all currently recognized antigenic groups, were scored positive slightly earlier by the ELISA compared to the virus neutralisation test. This monoclonal antibody-based competitive ELISA for SVDV antibodies designated the Ceditest ELISA for SVDV-Ab, is as sensitive but more specific than the ELISA used until recently. Because sera are tested at a single dilution (1:5), incubations are carried out at room temperature and test results are available within 3 h, this ELISA is simple, easy to automate and therefore very suitable for screening large numbers of serum samples.
