Abstract


Meta-analysis diagnostic test on rabies in India was done to estimate the prevalence of the disease in India. The data was obtained from the peer-reviewed articles and publications during 2010-2020. The data which was used in the present study includes the studies in which the samples were completely random. The Meta-analysis for the diagnostic tests of rabies was done on a total 15 studies out of which 6 for RFFIT and 9 for ELISA. The total sample size for prevalence estimation through RFFIT was 689 and total sample size for prevalence estimation through ELISA was 1856. The Sero-prevalence of diagnostic test of rabies in dogs showed non-significant Kendall's tau for RFFIT (0.4667, p > 0.05) and regression test revealed significant publication bias (z= 0.3222, p>0.05). The Sero-prevalence of diagnostic test of rabies in dogs showed non-significant Kendall's tau for ELISA (0.1111, p> 0.05) and regression test revealed significant publication bias (z= 0.2142, p>0.05)
