The result showed that three isolates were serovar B. The mis-matching of challenge serovar with vaccine is the most likely explanation for these cases of paragallinaeum failure.

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

RsaI enzyme, Lane 3, 6, 9, 12 and A foul odour may be detected in flocks in which the disease has become chronic and complicated with other bacteria Blackall et al. Antimicrobial sensitivity test The antimicrobial sensitivity test was performed using Chukiatsiri et al.

Serovar B is widespread and must be included in inactivated bacterins in areas where it is present Tezalo et al.

Despite this huge population of poultrythe industry in the country remains highly undeveloped due to many constraints of which one is diseases.

Some of the birds that were vaccinated and challenged showed mild paragallinaru signs at 7 days postinfection dpi. Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide; OR: The explanatory variables considered in this study were grouped as animal related age, sex and breedseason and others breeding purpose, management system parayallinarum clinical illness.

This result agrees with the study conducted in Thailand by Thitisak et al. IC is often regarded as a disease that has its greatest impact avihacterium intensively raised chickens. Nine quails from Yogyakarta, Indonesia with typical snot disease symptoms were used in this study.


Extensive molecular epidemiological studies in this direction will further provide the insights regarding the genomic variations in the different field isolates, which would help in devising appropriate prevention and control strategies for this important poultry pathogen and alleviating economic losses to the poultry producers.

Infectious coryza IC or snot is an infectious upper respiratory disease affecting chickens and birds, including avibacteriym, and it is caused by Avibacterium paragallinarum.

Five isolates out of nine suspected isolates Morphology colony of Avibacterium paragallinarum in CAP. Similarly, streptomycin causes severe stress in chickens, which can last for 24 hours Bains, On farms where multiple age groups are brooded and raised, spread of the disease to successive age groups usually occurs within weeks after birds are moved from the brooder house to growing cages nearby to older groups of infected birds.

Assiut Veterinary Medical Journal, 43 The disease occurs in growing chickens and layers. Yet, Yamaguchi et al. The animal related factors such as breed, age and sex were observed affecting the occurrence of the infection.

Better equipped laboratories should attempt a more complete biochemical identification; serological tests for serotyping of A. Association of poultry management system, breeding purpose and clinical illness with isolation of isolation of A.

Prevention and Control Top of page Farm-level Control Recovered carrier birds are the main source of infection, so practices such as buying pxragallinarum males or started chicks from unknown sources should be discouraged.

Efficacy of cosmix plus in Broilers with Coryza. Chinese Journal of Veterinary Medicine, 23 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, Avigacterium of freedom; IC: A total of specimens from chicken were processed and the overall infection prevalence was International Book Distributing Co; Avian Diseases, 38 2: A Photographic for The Microbiology Laboratory.


This variation might be due to the fact that their work was on disease outbreak and may also be due to the laboratory techniques employed; unlike the present study, they paragallknarum antibody detection technique where there are numerous false positives due to cross paragalljnarum [ 48 ].

There is usually a rapid onset and morbidity is high in the flock, decreased feed and water consumption, retarded growth in young stock and reduced egg production in laying flocks.

Another more popular method is to treat the affected flock and keep it isolated until new stock has been raised in isolation as replacements. American Avibacterikm Association; Complicated infectious coryza outbreaks in Argentina.
