Infectious bursal disease – Immunosuppression – Pathotype – Vaccination. Summary. Introduction in the sector over the sanitary status of poultry. Gumboro. In all poultry producing regions of the world, infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV ) continues to be a major constraint for poultry farmers.

Sequence and phylogenetic analyses of highly virulent infectious bursal disease virus. Microscopically, an atrophy of follicles into the bursa is observed secondary to inflammatory and dystrophic necrobiotic alterations.

Breeder flocks may be immunised against IBD so that they would transfer protective antibodies to their progenies, such as broiler and pullet chicks.

Evaluation of modified vaccinia virus Ankara expressing VP2 protein of infectious bursal disease virus as an immunogen in chickens. Response of embryonic chicken lymphoid cells to infectious bursal disease virus.

Due to partial protection offered by vaccination, especially by nonreplicating constructs subunit and DNA vaccinesthe development of new adjuvants and adjuvant formulations may help to improve the immunogenicity and protection provided by these vaccines.


Clinical signs of affected birds can include depression and ruffling of feathers, poor or lack of appetite, huddling, unsteady gate, reluctance to rise, and diarrhea sometimes bloody.

Mononuclear phagocytic cells and lymphoid cells of the gut mucosa may serve as targets for initial IBDV infection and replication following oral exposure.

The kidneys are affected by a severe urate diathesis. Genetic, antigenic and pathogenic characterization of four infectious bursal disease virus isolates from China suggests continued evolution of very virulent viruses. The IBD virus genome is segmented and is susceptible to genetic mutations through random recombination of its gene segments. The mode of transmission is primarily through the fecal-oral route.

Acute disease and death is due to the necrotizing effect of these viruses on the host tissues. Clinical Signs Chicks less than three weeks old do not typically show clinical signs of this disease, but their immune systems can nonetheless be adversely affected, and they are not able to fight off the disease.

The virus is resistant to some disinfectants.

In this review, we highlighted the pattern of virus evolution and new developments in prophylactic strategies, mainly the development of new generation vaccines, which will continue to be of interest for research as well as field application in the future.

They produce a watery diarrhea and may have swollen feces-stained vent. A natural IBD infection is mostly observed in chickens. Molecular characterization of infectious bursal disease virus IBDV: Efficacy of a novel infectious bursal disease virus immune complex vaccine in broiler chickens.

Another approach to improve vaccine efficacy is to optimize the delivery of candidate vaccines by targeting specific immunological compartments, for example, antigen-presenting cells. Editor who approved publication: Poulty and function of Toll-like receptors in chicken heterophils. A recombinant vesicular stomatitis virus replicon vaccine protects chickens from highly pathogenic avian influenza virus H7N1.


Sequence comparisons of the variable VP2 region of eight infectious bursal disease virus isolates. In addition to clinical signs, birds will often have post-mortem lesions identified upon autopsy indicative of IBDV infection.

The crystal structure of VP2 indicates that most amino acid aa changes are localized in the exposed projection domain that contains the hypervariable region hVP2. Structure and Molecular Biology. Clinical disease is associated to bird age with the greatest bursal mass, which occurs between 3 and 6 weeks of age. Host immunity to IBDV: Chimaeric VP2 proteins from infectious bursal disease virus containing the N-terminal M2e poultryy H9 subtype avian influenza virus induce neutralizing antibody responses to both viruses.

The birnavirus crystal structure reveals structural relationships among icosahedral viruses.

Understanding these features of the virus and the mechanisms of protective immunity elicited thereof is necessary for developing vaccines with improved efficacy. A comparison of the sequences of segment A of four infectious bursal disease virus strains and identification of a variable region in VP2. This response is mediated by pattern recognition receptors Diseaxewhich detect pathogen-associated molecular patterns PAMPs for induction of effector molecules.

Infectious Bursal Disease in Poultry

Besides biosecurity, vaccination is the most important measure to control IBDV in the field. Therefore, IBDV isolates with different genotypic and phenotypic diversity exist.

Try asking one of xisease Experts. There are two distinct serotypes of the virus, but only serotype 1 viruses cause disease in poultry. There is no evidence for egg vertical transmission of IBDV.
