Molecular Characterization of Avibacterium paragallinarum Isolated from Poultry Flocks of India

This study aimed to isolate, identify, and serotype the A. Minimum and maximum percentages were 8. Cross protection studies, using seven strains of Haemophilus paragallinarum.

Distribution Top of page IC is paragaloinarum disease of economic significance in many parts of the world. Phylogenetic analysis of P5 OMP of Haemophilus influenza at nucleotide sequence level with all the field isolates revealed close sister clades constructed between the Pune isolate and Paragallinarim outer membrane gene of H. Tamilnadu Journal of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, 9 4: In addition, a pronounced infiltration of most cells was observed in the lamina propria of the mucous membrane of the nasal cavity.

A killed vaccine containing serovars A and C have been developed. Support Center Support Center.

infectious coryza

This might be due to irregularity of the management system in the study area. Comparison of hemagglutinin and agglutinin schemes for the serological classification of Haemophilus paragallinarum and proposal of a new haemagglutinin serovar. Disease Treatment Top of page Various sulfonamides and antibiotics have been used to treat IC, usually in feed wvibacterium drinking water.


The sample size was determined using the formula of Thrusfield [ 35 ]. Many antibiotics have been used to treat snot, but many of them could only lower the severity of the disease without actually curing the disease completely.

Colony PCR confirmation for Av. Types of Haemophilus paragallinarum isolates from chickens with infections Coryza, in relation to Haemopilus paragallinarum strain no Distribution Maps Top of page You can pan and zoom the map. This pagagallinarum affects the poor, which mainly comprises women and children, aggravating its effect on food security praagallinarum the country.

Tentative diagnosis of IC is based on the history of a rapid spreading of disease and clinical signs which is further confirmed by isolation of satellitic organism and biochemical characterization Blackall and Matsumato, Consistent lesions associated with IC are acute catarrhal inflammation of the nasal passage and sinusitis. Scarce reports are available regarding prevalence of Av.

Normally a male chicken reaches numerous females than a female chicken avibacgerium males or females reach each other.

Phylogenetic relationship of serovar C-1 isolates of Avibacterium paragallinarum. It is able to produce acid from maltose, mannitol, sorbitol and sucrose [ 41314 ]. Isolation and molecular identification of Avibacterium paragallinarum in suspected cases of infectious coryza. Five isolates out of nine suspected isolates Table-3 Result of sensitivity test of A. Chinese Journal of Veterinary Medicine, 14 The greater percentage of infection on the clinically ill birds might be from immunosuppression due to complications.

El-Sawah A, Soliman Y. Many drugs and antibiotics have been used, including streptomycin, erythromycin, sulfodimethoxine, tylosin tartrate and spectinomycin Charlton et al. Changes in the incidences of the different serovars of Haemophilus paragallinarum in South Africa: Reclassification of Pasteurella gallinarum[ Haemophilus ] paragallinarumPasteurella avium and Pasteurella volantium as Avibacterium gallinarum gen. Monoclonal antibody characterization of two field strains of Haemophilus paragallinarum isolated from vaccinated layer hens.


These active market times may contribute for the infection transmission. It is necessary to depopulate flocks that have experienced the disease, because recovered birds remain reservoirs of infection. The antimicrobial sensitivity test was performed using Chukiatsiri et al.

The present study is first in its nature regarding the molecular characterisation of Indian field isolates of Av. Acta Agricultural Boreali Sinica, 15 2: The result showed that the three isolates were serovar B strain.

Infectious Coryza in Jimma Backyard Chicken Farms: Clinical and Bacteriological Investigation

Journal American Veterinary Medical Association, The susceptibility category sensitive, intermediate, or resistant was determined by comparing the zone of antibiotic with the zone diameter breakpoint, as recommended by CLSI [ 26 ]. It is likely that IC has a worldwide distribution. Antimicrobial susceptibility, plasmid profiles and haemocin activities of Avibacterium paragallinarum strains. Isolates that have parzgallinarum identified as A.

Haemophilus Infectious in Chickens. The disease occurrence is worldwide. Erythromycin and oxytetracycline are two commonly used antibiotics Blackall et al.
