Abstract

Leptospirosis is best known in Western Australia as an insidious cause of abortion in pigs and cattle. Less well known is the fact that leptospirosis can occur in any warm blooded animal, including man, and that farmers, meat workers and veterinarians frequently risk infection. The disease is difficult to diagnose but research in the Microbiology Section of the Department of Agriculture's Animal Health Laboratory has resulted in the development of a new test which overcomes some of these difficulties
