Example text

It is noteworthy to recognize that the degree of clinical signs does not correlate with the genus of these birds. Birds suffering from ILT excrete large amounts of blood-stained tracheal mucus containing ILT virus, thus facilitating transmission to other susceptible species. Subclinically infected birds may excrete ILT virus from conjunctiva and oral secretions and can also be a source of infection by direct and indirect contact. Vectors play no role. No evidence exists for vertical virus transmission.

There are no known public health concerns associated with this virus. CpHV1 has been shown to infect and establish latency in bovine calves, but reactivation was not successful and clinical signs were absent(42). The impact of this virus in other species of the Caprinae subfamily remains unknown. CERVID HERPESVIRUSES 1 AND 2 Serological studies of cervids have long shown exposure of these animals to BoHV-1 or other closely related viruses. Two ruminant herpesviruses belonging to the same Alphaherpesvirinae subfamily as BoHV1 have so far been identified and isolated in Europe from members of the Cervidae family: Cervid herpesvirus 1 (CvHV1) in red deer (Cervus elaphus) and Cervid herpesvirus 2 (CvHV2) in reindeer (Rangifer tarandus).

An inactivated vaccine is not commercially available in Europe. A live chicken embryo-adapted vaccine was developed to protect exposed juvenile and adult ducks(106). Revaccination at yearly intervals is necessary if breeding birds are kept. Unfortunately, this attenuated live-virus vaccine is considered suitable only for specific situations applicable to a small number of birds, and it is therefore currently difficult to obtain from European vaccine manufacturers. Duck plague is a reportable disease in the USA but not in European countries.
