The first cases of circovirus infections in pigeons were documented less than 25 years ago. Since then, circovirus infections have been reported on nearly all continents. The prevalence of pigeon circovirus (PiCV) infections in populations of domestic pigeons is very high (70% on average). The specificity of pigeon breeding defies biosecurity principles, which could be the reason for the high prevalence of PiCV infections. PiCV infections in pigeons lead to atrophy of immune system organs and lymphocyte apoptosis...

Avian influenza outbreaks continue to strike poultry worldwide, affecting human and animal health and welfare and representing a substantial economic burden. Wild migratory birds, especially waterfowl and shore birds, are associated with global spread of avian influenza virus (AIV). Although direct contact with wild birds and virus-contaminated fomites is unlikely in modern non-free range poultry farms applying standard biosecurity measures, AIV outbreaks still occur. This suggests involvement of other intermediate factors for virus transmission between wild birds and poultry...

Ebola virus (EBOV) is an extremely contagious pathogen and causes lethal hemorrhagic fever disease in man and animals with high fatality rates. The recently occurred Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreaks in the West African countries have categorized it as an international health concern. For the virus maintenance and transmission, the non-human primates and reservoir hosts like fruit bats have played a vital role. Furthermore, the virus may also get transferred through contaminated biological fluids like breast milk, tears, urine, semen, blood, etc...

BACKGROUND: In the pathogenicity of porcine edema disease, which is caused by the Escherichia coli-producing F18 and Shiga toxin, F18(+) fimbrial adhesins and Shiga toxin 2e (Stx2e) play pivotal roles in the colonization and enterotoxicity of this pathogen. OBJECTIVE: To develop a vaccine candidate against edema disease by combining three selected antigens of F18(+) Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC). METHODS: Genetically engineered Salmonella Typhimurium (ST) ghosts that express Stx2eB, FedF, and FedA were individually inserted in a ghost plasmid cassette (pJHL184), and the resultant plasmids were transformed into a Δasd Δlon ΔcpxR ST (JOL912)...

Duck virus enteritis (DVE), also called duck plague, is one of the major contagious and fatal diseases of ducks, geese and swan. It is caused by duck enteritis virus (DEV)/Anatid herpesvirus-1 of the genus Mardivirus, family Herpesviridae, and subfamily Alpha-herpesvirinae. Of note, DVE has worldwide distribution, wherein migratory waterfowl plays a crucial role in its transmission within and between continents. Furthermore, horizontal and/ or vertical transmission plays a significant role in disease spread through oral-fecal discharges...

BACKGROUND: Ruminants, including sheep and goats (small ruminants), are key agricultural animals in many parts of the world. Infectious diseases, including many viral diseases, are significant problems to efficient production of ruminants. Unfortunately, reagents tailored to viruses of ruminants, and especially small ruminants, are lacking compared to other animals more typically used for biomedical research. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine the permissibility of a stably immortalized, sheep microglial cell line to viruses that are reported to infect ruminants: bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV), bovine herpesvirus 1 (BoHV-1), small ruminant lentiviruses (SRLV), and bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV)...

Haemorrhagic enteritis virus (HEV), an adenovirus associated with acute hemorrhagic gastro-intestinal disease of 6-11 weeks old turkeys predominantly hampers both humoral and cellular immunity. Affected birds are more prone to secondary complications (like colibacillosis and clostridiosis) and failure to mount an effective vaccine-induced immune response. HEV belongs to the new genus Siadenovirus. Feco-oral transmission is the main route of entry of the virus and it mainly colonizes bursa, intestine and spleen...

Paratuberculosis (pTB) is a chronic granulomatous enteritis caused by Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP) in a wide variety of domestic and wild animals. Control of pTB is difficult due to the lack of sensitive, efficacious and cost-effective diagnostics and marker vaccines. Microscopy, culture, and PCR have been used for the screening of MAP infection in animals for quite a long time. Besides, giving variable sensitivity and specificity, these tests have not been considered ideal for large-scale screening of domestic livestock...
