EIA is a potentially fatal blood-borne infectious viral disease that produces a persistent infection among equids nearly worldwide. It is caused by an RNA virus classified in the Lentivirus genus, family Retroviridae. EIA can present as an acute, subacute, or chronic infection. On occasion, the EIA virus can be a cause of significant morbidity and mortality. The most frequently encountered form of the disease is the inapparent, chronically infected carrier. There is no vaccine or treatment for the disease, and it is often difficult to differentiate EIA from other fever-producing diseases, including anthrax, influenza, and equine encephalitis. EIA was difficult to diagnose and identify until 1970, when the agar-gel immunodiffusion test was developed. More recently, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA tests) reduced the time for a lab result from at least 24 hours to 1-2 hours. Accurate tests allow us to identify and remove positive reactors from herds and effectively block the spread of EIA among tested populations.
