O filiformis Goeze 1782

Hendrikx and Moppes (1983) stated that 'L4 stages develop from day 9 in the lumen of the intestine' and 'the young L4 stages are lying deeply between the villi close to the epithelium'. Also, 'late L4 stages are situated more superficially in the lumen of the intestine as are L5 (sic) and adults' and 'egg production by females was observed on day 29 after infection'.

Neurolymphomatosis of fowls virus

Large outbreaks occurred in New South Wales, Australia during 1998-2000. Disease produced is primarily respiratory but signs of nervous system involvement may be seen. The eyes are closed, there is nasal discharge and watery diarrhea. Virus is shed in all secretions and excretions for up to 4 weeks. Spasms and paralysis may occur. Mild strains cause low mortality but reduce egg production. Most avian species appear to be susceptible. Infection of the conjunctiva has been reported in poultry and laboratory workers. Experimental i.c. injection in hamsters and mice causes encephalitis which is not transmissible. Transmission is through drinking water or inhalation of dust. Control is by slaughter or use of attenuated vaccines that can be administered by aerosol or in drinking water. Most strains replicate readily in eggs or chick cell cultures in which they produce CPE. Replication also occurs in many species of mammalian cells. Cultures may remain latently infected for long...

Isolation of blastodermal cells

The fertilized eggs were collected from poultry house everyday and fresh eggs were used for the present studies. The fertilized embryos were from Barred Plymouth Rock chickens (i i) that have black feathers and are homozygous recessive at the I locus or from White Leghorn chickens (I I) that have white feathers and are homozygous dominant at the I locus. The embryos used were stage X blastoderm (Eyal-Giladi and Kochav, 1976) in freshly laid and unincubated. The embryo proper was separated from egg yolk and excess yolk and blood were washed off from the embryos with phosphate-buffered saline (PBS). The obtained embryos were observed by stereoscopic microscope to check the developmental conditions. The center of the area pellucida of the blastoderm was carefully isolated from the embryo. The obtained cell cluster was dissociated with trypsin and dispersed in Dulbecco's Modified Eagle's Medium (DMEM) containing 10 chicken serum (Carsience et al., 1993).

DsRNA adenosine deaminase activity See DRADA

Duck adenovirus 1 (DAdV-1) An unas-signed virus in the family Adenoviridae, causing egg drop syndrome (EDS). First described in 1976 as a disease of laying hens and referred to as EDS 76 virus in many publications. A widespread natural infection of ducks and geese, which show little evidence of disease. In chickens the virus replicates in nasal mucosa and subsequently in lymphoid tissues and in the pouch shell gland, resulting in eggs with abnormal thin shells and a general loss in egg production. The virus is transmitted vertically in chicken flocks, and may remain silent until the birds approach peak egg production. Isolated from chickens worldwide, which probably became infected through a contaminated vaccine. Infection also occurs in some flocks by direct contact with wild or domestic ducks or geese. Control is by eradication through slaughter of antibody-positive birds or by immunization with an oil adjuvant-inactivated vaccine applied at 3-4 months of age. Sequencing of the...

The Ecology And Evolution Of Transovarially Transmitted Microsporidia


Microsporidia for which transovarial transmission is the sole or major route have been shown to cause little or no reduction in host fitness. For example, Bulnheim and Vavra (1968) found that Octosporea effeminans was present in very low burden in its Gammarus duebeni host and caused no discernible pathogenicity. Female growth, moult frequency, fecundity and survival were all unaffected by the parasite. Terry et al. (1997) found that Nosema granulosis in the same crustacean host caused limited pathogenicity. Host survival was unaffected by the parasite. However, the growth rate of infected young was reduced leading to low adult weight and a reduction in fecundity of about 25 . Similarly, Ni et al. (1997) found little disease induced mortality in the leaf hopper Empoasca fabae infected with Nosema empoascae and reported an increase in the egg production of infected, transmitting females.

Infectious bovine rhinotracheitis virus

Infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) The type species of the genus Coronavirus. The cause of a common, contagious, acute respiratory disease of chicks. Neutralization tests using chick embryos indicate multiple variant antigenic types. All strains show some antigenic relationships but are unrelated to other coronaviruses. Beaudette strain (IBV-42) is serologically similar to Massachusetts strain, although on egg passage it has become lethal for chick embryos but has lost infectivity for older birds. Chicks up to 4 weeks old are most susceptible. They show depression and gasping rales are heard. The disease lasts 6-18 days and the mortality is up to 90 . In laying birds there is a drop in egg production and eggs are defective. Pheasants may be infected. Mild endemic infection may result in poor egg production and predispose to bacterial respiratory disease. Avian nephrosis and visceral gout may be caused by the virus, possibly by certain strains (see Australian infectious bronchitis...


Morrison (1969) studied the effect of fertilizing soil with poultry litter containing organoarsenical feed additives on the arsenic content in soil, crops grown on that soil, and drainage water passing through that soil. Contrary to our results, he found that the arsenic content of the soil and groundwater was apparently unaffected by treatment of the soil with poultry litter. He estimated that 1 to 2 mg kg arsenic will be widespread per acre per year when chicken litter is used as fertilizer based upon a use rate of 4 to 6 tons of poultry litter per acre. Nowadays, it is estimated that approximately 106 kg per year (103 times more than in 1969) of roxarsone and its degradation products are introduced into the environment from the disposal of poultry litter onto agricultural fields near the chicken houses which can result in localized arsenic pollution (Wershaw et al., 1999).
