Abstract

The enteric diseases associated with diarrhea, dehydration and weight loss are a major health problem of cattle worldwide, contributing to significant morbidity and mortality especially among newborns. In this context, demands for improving the laboratory diagnosis of infectious enteric diseases became constant, given the economic losses involved. Bovine astrovirus is among the major viral enteropathogens of worldwide distribution and recent history on which the studies in Brazil remain incipient. Therefore, investigations based on the detection of bovine astrovirus circulating in São Paulo and Minas Gerais States, particularly in the contiguous São Paulo Northeast and Minas Gerais Southwest regions, are important to understand the possible distribution of this virus with direct consequences on the etiology and epidemiology of viral enteric diseases of cattle in these regions. In this sense, this project aims the molecular detection and characterization of bovine astrovirus, using bovine stool samples collected from diarrheic and non-diarrheic animals of different ages.
