Molecular sisease of infectious bursal disease virus IBDV: Historically, IBDV evolution has three major events: Infectious bursal disease virus gumbiro expression arrests growth and mitogenic stimulation of B lymphocytes.

In addition, the junction of proventriculus and gizzard, the heart muscle, respiratory ciliated epithelium, and proventriculus also revealed positive expression to IBD virus IBDV antigen. Results and Discussion A total of 33 cases during 6 outbreaks were collected, of which 26 were suspected to be having affected with the disease.

The administration regime of adjuvants may modify their efficacy as shown by Negash et al, 97 who demonstrated that adjuvant application at staggered intervals improved vaccine poultrh compared with simultaneous application of vaccine and adjuvant. The disease was first discovered in Gumboro, Delaware in Expression of perforin-granzyme pathway genes in the bursa of infectious bursal disease virus-infected chickens. A sero-epidemiological survey of infectious bursal disease in scavenging village chickens in Enugu State.

Table-2 The scoring of the bursal lesions in six outbreaks. IBDV genome consists of two segments, A and B, which are enclosed within a nonenveloped icosahedral capsid. Analysis of the early immune response to infection by infectious bursal disease virus in chickens differing in their resistance to the disease.

Serological tests such as agar gel precipitation and ELISA, for detecting antibodies, are used for monitoring vaccine responses and might be additional information for diagnosis of infection of unvaccinated flocks.

Infectious bursal disease virus in poultry: current status and future prospects

Thus, regular vaccination and adoption of proper prophylactic measures are mandatory to diminish the occurance of this disease. Rarefaction of bursal follicles with intermittent infiltration poultru lympho-mononuclear cells with chronic cystic changes was additional changes, considered to be paramount for IBD.


The similar reaction was also seen in the cortical lymphocytes of thymus and in few glandular epithelial cells of Harderian gland depending on the days post-infection. It was also shown that IBDV-infected birds may become a good propagator for other viral pathogens. dsiease

Kidney failure is a common cause of mortality. Intra-follicular hemorrhages may be found and pin point hemorrhages on the skeletal muscles are usually prominent [ 6 ]. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Poultry farming has always been an integral component of livestock production.

In this context, study by Fantay et al.

The extent of proventriculitis although followed unrelated trend to these four changes in bursa, it was not only concomitantly found in outbreaks which were marked by extensive bursal histopathological changes, i. Use of a vectored vaccine against infectious bursal disease of chickens in the face of high-titred maternally derived antibody.

The greatest bursal mass is mostly a result of a large population of maturing IgM-bearing B-lymphocytes lymphoblaststhe main target of infection. Structure and Molecular Biology. Differential modulation of immune response and cytokine profiles in the bursae and spleen of chickens infected with very virulent infectious bursal disease virus. IBDV-VP2 subunit vaccines produced in yeast and Escherichia coli expression systems have been licensed for commercial use. Prior to the visits to various farms as mentioned, necessary permission was sought with regards to collection of samples from diseased birds and generation of data either from the competent authority of university administration Guru Poulttry Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University [GADVASU] as well as from owners of respective farms.

Histopathological and immunohistochemical diagnosis of infectious bursal disease in poultry birds

This article is an open access article licensed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attributin License http: The period of most apparent clinical symptoms and high death rate is at the age of 3 – 6 weeks.

HP The histopathological changes in the bursa of Fabricius mainly showed the fibrotic and atrophic type of changes, which were in the consonance with the gross observations, in which the bursa were found atrophic. Nonetheless, hemorrhages over thigh muscles were rarely seen. Grossly enlarged and hemorrhagic bursa.

Different domains of the RNA polymerase of infectious bursal disease virus contribute to virulence. At poulty age the B-lymphoblast population is smaller and the systemic effects are gumbpro for generating clinical signs.


However, the B-cell destruction is usually most severe in subclinically infected young, as virus will destroy a smaller population and most cells in one place the bursa. An experimental study on early pathogenesis of a very virulent isolate of infectious bursal disease virus, employing immunohistochemistry. Transcriptional profiling reveals a possible role for the timing of the inflammatory response in determining susceptibility to a viral infection.

Molecular evidence for a geographically restricted population of gjmboro bursal disease viruses. Vectored IBD vaccines as well as immune complex vaccines have been licensed in recent years to overcome some of the problems related to classical vaccines.

Histopathological and immunohistochemical diagnosis of infectious bursal disease in poultry birds

Evaluation of a phylogenetic marker based on genomic segment B of infectious bursal disease virus: They produce a watery diarrhea and may have swollen feces-stained vent. Retrieved from ” https: As per the analysis of the bursal lesions in these six different outbreaks, the lymphoid depletion was seen the highest in the fourth outbreak 2.

The chicks become anorectic, become reluctant to move, and show ruffled feathers with watery diarrhea, trembling and severe prostration. Chicken heat shock protein 90 is a component of the putative cellular receptor complex of infectious bursal disease virus.

It continues to be a leading cause of economic losses in the poultry industry. Histopathologically, there was rarefaction of the bursal follicles along with the mixed cellular infiltration in the bursal follicles.

IBD lesions undergo various stages of serous haemorrhagic to severe haemorrhagic poultfy. Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer. In some cases, the bursa is filled with coagulated fibrinous exudate that usually forms casts with the shape of mucosal folds. Table-1 Various farms visited for sample collection for suspected IBD outbreaks. Synthetic transcripts of double-stranded Birnavirus genome are infectious.
