AbstractThe study aimed to investigate serum pepsinogens values with and without abomasl lesions of sheep. Eighty five blood and abomasal samples containing abomasal lesions were collected during slaughtering of sheep in slaughterhouse of Al-Qasim city-Iraq. The abomasal mucosa was examined, and the type, number, and location of lesions were recorded. Serum was taken for pepsinogen assay by ELISA technique. Results revealed that the highest percentage of lesions in abomasum were nodules (48.23%), ulcers (23.52%), parasites (17.64%) and hemorrhage (10.58%). A significant difference (P≤0.05) was recorded between nodules and other abomasum lesions. Serum pepsinogens values in abomasal lesions was found higher (3.8) than those without abomasal lesions (3.13), and showed a significant difference in samples which had different lesions (3.8±0.13) than free lesions samples (3.13±0.1). No significant difference was showed between all samples containing ulcer, nodules and parasites (3.65± 0.28) (3.88±0.24) (3.65±0.95) respectively although the nodules was recorded higher serum pepsinogens comparative with other lesions..
