The aim of the study was to determine changes in some of biochemical parameters accompanied with brucellosis naturally infected native goats. The study included examination of 102 blood sera representing 396 native goats from different areas in Mosul city using rose bengal test, indirect ELISA test and tube agglutination test. Results showed that prevalence of brucellosis by using rose bengal test and indirect ELISA test was (6.8% and 24.5%) respectively. Titers of rose bengal seropostive sera ranged (1/80 -1/640), whereas titers of indirect ELISA seropostive sera ranged (1/40 - 1/640) using tube agglutination test. Results also showed significant increase in aspartate transaminase, alanine transaminase, lactate dehydrogenase and significant increased in alkaline phosphatase, there were also significant increases in glucose concentration, total and direct bilirubin, triglycerides and cholesterol, whereas total protein and albumin values were significantly decreased. All these parameters examinated on seropostive sera for indirect ELISA and tube agglutination tests in goats naturally infected with brucellosis compared with seronegative sera for same tests.
