The aetiological agent eluded identification for a number of years, as the disease was often masked avigacterium mixed infection, and with fowl pox in particular Blackall et al. All the isolates were found negative for catalase test.

The clinical syndromes have been described in the early times as roup, contagious catarrh, cold and uncomplicated coryza.

This might be due to irregularity of the management system in the study area.

The restriction endonuclease analysis REA profile patterns of amplified 16S ribosomal genes were found to be characteristic for Av. As far as Indian scenario is concerned, IC is one of the major problems affecting commercial poultry industry since its first report Rao, Veterinary Record, IC may occur in growing chickens and layers. Injection of the bacterin into the leg muscle has been found to give better protection than when it is injected into breast paragzllinarum. When several references are cited, they may give conflicting information on the status.

Therefore, laboratory investigations including bacteriology are required to demonstrate the presence of the causative agent [ 35 ]. A, dan Hossain M.

The initial inoculation was performed onto chocolate agar plate CAP because this medium supplies V factor which is necessary for A. In susceptible chickens the symptoms first appear about hours after exposure to infection.

Studies of the pathogenic avian Haemophili. Further efficacy studies on inactivated, aluminum-hydroxide-adsorbed vaccines against infectious coryza. Introduction Infectious coryza IC or snot is an infectious upper respiratory disease affecting poultry [ 1 – 3 ]. Moreover, the diagnosis of Av.

The specimens collected were diluted with distilled water prior to isolation. Oral administration of doses of 10 10 cells of attenuated A.

All replacement birds on endemic farms should be vaccinated [ 1925 ]. Sample collection and transportation: Serological classification of Australian and South African isolates of Haemophilus paragallinarum.

Degree of freedom; IC: In addition, a pronounced infiltration of most cells was observed in the lamina propria of the mucous membrane of the nasal cavity. Infectious Coryza IC is a highly contagious disease affecting the upper respiratory tract of chicken and has emerged as one of the major problem affecting the commercial poultry industry. The study sample was comprised of 86 male and female chickens of which were local, cross and exotic breeds.

Normally a male chicken reaches numerous females than a female chicken reaches males or females reach each other. The result obtained matches with the study reported by Akhter et al. Two classification systems applied to A.

Chinese Journal of Veterinary Medicine, 23 In paragallinaurm birds, no gross pathologic lesions were found except in one bird that was coinfected with both the pathogens characterized by mucoid tracheitis.


Zinneman K; Biberstein EL, Erythromycin and oxytetracycline are two commonly used antibiotics Blackall et al. A cross sectional study on infectious coryza was conducted in Jimma, Ethiopia, from November to April with the objectives of determining the prevalence of infectious coryza, and associated factors.
