Abstract
Surra is caused by Trypanosoma evansi and is considered as one of the important disease in camels in India. Very often camel acts as the carrier of the infection with very low level of parasitaemia which cannot be detected by conventional blood smear examination

In the present study, a pilot sero-epidemiological study was conducted among camels for trypanosomosis in Rajasthan using purified flagellar (FLA) antigen based indirect enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (I-ELISA) and compared with standard CATT/T. evansi test. The diagnostic potentiality of purified FLA antigen based I-ELISA (FLA-I-ELISA) were evaluated using 230 camel sera samples from different districts of Rajasthan including Jaipur, Udaipur, Bikaner, Jodhpur, and Ajmer.
