The diagnostic properties of several assays on live animals were studied using data from different experiments. These experiments involved 128 classical swine fever virus (CSFV) infected pigs (weaner pigs, fatteners and sows). Since all pigs in the study were infected with CSFV, only the proportion of test positive results and the time until a test positive result is obtained were evaluated. The RT-nPCR detected the highest proportion of infected pigs (98.9%), whereas the Antigen ELISA gave the worst detection results (74.7%). Within the group of test positive animals, infection was detecte…
