A Study of Adenoviruses Isolated from Turkeys. Author: Scott, M. L. Awarding Body: Queen's University of Belfast Current Institution: Queen's University Belfast Date of . Adenoviruses are ubiquitous in chickens, as demonstrated by serological surveys and virological studies, and have been isolated from both sick and healthy birds. Adenoviruses have also been isolated from turkeys, geese, ducks, pigeons, budgerigars an d a mallard duck (Anas platyrhynchos). Evidence of adenovirus infection has been recorded in gulls. Adenoviruses have been isolated from different types of fowl profile production, and infections in fowl seem to be commonly widespread. Recent outbreaks of adenovirus infections (FAdV) in poultry flocks have been determined in many countries such as Europe, USA, Asia, and Australia, and are connected with economic loss in poultry by: 1. Adenoviruses have also been isolated from turkeys, geese, ducks, pigeons, budgerigars and a mallard duck (Anas platyrhynchos). Evidence of adenovirus infection has been recorded in gulls, psittacines, owls and hawks. Infection by adenoviruses is likely to occur in all species of birds.
The long-tailed duck adenovirus reference isolate appears to be more virulent in wild and captive long-tailed ducks (Hollmén et al., a), causing more severe lesions and affecting more tissues compared with mallards raised in captivity in this study. Adenoviruses have been associated with mortality in two species of sea ducks, common eiders in the northern Baltic Sea and . Adenoviruses (Ads) derived their name from the fact that they were first isolated from adenoid tissues (tonsils) and have a certain affinity for lymph glands, where they may remain latent for years. There are seven subgenera with 41 species (previously serotypes) (Table 1). Adenoviruses are a group of common viruses that infect the lining of your eyes, airways and lungs, intestines, urinary tract, and nervous system. In this book, the authors highlight the achievements in the study of animal and human adenoviruses, chemotherapy of adenovirus infections, and the development in adenoviral vector-based vaccines and. turkeys, the production of hatching eggs, and the operation of hatcheries and processing plants are large, essential phases. Practical knowledge of raising turkeys is obviously important to the turkey grower, and to help supply that knowledge is the purpose of this handbook.

Adenoviruses are common infectious agents in poultry and wild birds worldwide. This chapter offers detailed coverage of the history, etiology, pathobiology, epidemiology, diagnosis, and. Avian adenoviruses are ubiquitous worldwide in avian species. Although many of these viruses are isolated from healthy birds, some cause diseases associated with significant economic losses in the poultry industry, including egg-drop syndrome (EDS), inclusion body hepatitis (IBH), inclusion body hepatitis/hydropericardium syndrome (IBH/HPS) in chickens and hemorrhagic enteritis (HE) of turkeys. Abstract. The opening quotation is a part of the description of the first epizootic of adenovirus, in which the etiological agent then named fox encephalitis virus, and now known as canine adenovirus type 1, was isolated.
