Abstract:
Epidemiologic research of osteoporsis in bactrian camels and the relationship between the disease andbiogeochemical factors were reported in this paper.The results indicated that the affected area stretched horn thesouthwest Tengeli desert to the northwest Badanjiling desert.The effected area was about 600 km long and 160kin wide.The incidence was about 28.8%.The mortality among the affected camels were 60%.Copper andphosphorus contents in the soil and forage of from the affected areas were significantly lower than those of thenormal areas (P<0.01 ).m(Ca): m(p) ratios in the forage was 50: 1.P contents in blood and her of theaffected camels were 253.0 μg/mL and 98.4±21.7 μg/g respectively, which showed a significant decrease ascompared with the healthy camels (P<0 .01 ).It is concluded that the disease was caused mainly by phosporusdeficiency in the food chain.
