Assays were conducted with NSP and solid faze ELISA. Total 1692 serum samples were collected across the country as a result of this study. The 2.6% of positivity for NSP. The immune status of antibodies against serotype A -60%, Azia 1-70%, O- 60%. As a result of seromonitoring, it was defined that the epizootic state against foot and mouth disease was stable.
