Use of an elisa in the differential diagnosis of cauda equina neuritis and other equine neuropathies



In 27 potential neuropathies an enzyme-linked immunosorbant assay, using P2 preparations from either bovine or equine myelin, detected all cases of cauda equina neuritis in which there was caudal involvement. The test was of limited value in differentiating neuropathies involving only cranial or other peripheral nerves.
