The disease affects the upper respiratory tracts of chickens Yamamoto, This paper describes a phenotypic and genotypic investigation of the taxonomy of [Haemophilus] paragallinarum, Pasteurella gallinarum, Pasteurella avium and Pasteurella volantium, a major subcluster within the avian 16S rRNA cluster 18 of the family Pasteurellaceae.

Additionally, arthritis and septicaemia, possibly complicated by the presence of other pathogens, have been reported in broiler and layer flocks in South America Sandoval et al.

Infectious Coryza: Overview of the Disease and New Diagnostic Options

Affected chickens have variable size of swelling of the infraorbital sinus and face, nasal discharge, difficulty in breathing and coughing. Infection may involve one or both sinuses. Another more popular method is to treat the affected flock and keep it isolated until new stock has been raised in isolation as replacements.

Onderstepoort Journal of Veterinary Research, 63 3: Infectious coryza is an upper respiratory disease of chickens caused by infection with H. More information about modern web browsers can be found at http: A recent molecular study has suggested that isolates of O. This concept of a bivalent vaccine was based on the belief that Page serovar B was not a true serovar and that serovar A and C based vaccines provided cross-protection. Subsequent publications have reported the existence of two further serovars and the recognition that the three Kume serogroups correspond to the three Page serovars 4.


Only day-old chicks should be secured for replacement purposes unless the source is known to be free of IC. The generally accepted clinical picture associated with both infectious coryza and ornithobacterosis indicates that most authorities believe that two diseases should not present similar clinical signs.

Infectious Coryza: Overview of the Disease and New Diagnostic Options

Two injections given approximately 4 weeks apart before 20 weeks of age results in better performance of layers than a single injection Feng et al. National Academy paagallinarum Science. Avian Diseases, 31 3: IC may occur in growing chickens and layers. Journal of Advanced Veterinary and Animal Research, 3 2: Reclassification of Pasteurella gallinarum[ Haemophilus ] paragallinarumPasteurella avium and Pasteurella volantium as Avibacterium gallinarum gen.

infectious coryza

The extracted HI test has not been widely used or evaluated. The aetiological agent eluded identification for a number of years, as the disease was often masked in mixed infection, and with fowl pox in particular Blackall et al.

Serological classification of Japanese haemopbilus of Haemophilus paragallinarum using two serovar-specific monoclonal antibodies. Molecular epidemiology of Ornithobacterium rhinotracheale. Serological Tests A range of serological tests to detect antibodies have been described Blackall et al.

A haemophilic bacterium as the cause of contagious catarrh of the fowl coryza infectiousa gallinarum. Vaccines against paraglalinarum coryza. Although most isolates of A. Commercial bacterins prepared from chicken embryos or broth may be autogenous or may combine strains of serotypes.

Chronic or apparently healthy carrier birds have been recognized as the main reservoirs of infection.

This emergence of Kume serovar C-3 has occurred at a hqemophilus when infectious coryza has remained haemophlus important and widespread disease, despite the extensive use of commercial vaccines The disease is paragallinaruj most commonly in adult chickens and can cause a very significant reduction in the rate of egg production.


Enzyme linked immunosorbent assay for detection of antibody to Haemophilus paragallinarum. Key characteristics that separate these four species are catalase activity absent only in Avibacterium paragallinarum and production of acid from galactose negative only in Avibacterium paragallinarummaltose negative only in Avibacterium avium and mannitol negative in Avibacterium gallinarum and Avibacterium avium.

Only in village chickens between 2 and 6 months old did other diseases, specifically Newcastle disease and pasteurellosis, cause more deaths than coryza An assessment of the genetic diversity of Australian and overseas isolates of Haemophilus paragallinarum by multilocus enzyme electrophoresis; p.

IC is a disease of economic significance in many parts of the world.

In both North and South America, outbreaks of coryza in which chickens have shown clinical signs more typical of a swollen-head-like syndrome have been reported 17 The submitted chickens from the two farms that were negative by both culture and PCR did not show typical clinical signs of infectious coryza when received at the central laboratory There is not enough knowledge or experience yet to draw any sound conclusions on whether there is a correlation between titer and protection for the treated HI test.

Experiments on the dosage, potency and duration of immunity. DeBlieck isolated the causative agent and named it Bacillus hemoglobinophilus coryzae gallinarum Blackall et al. Pathogenicity and serovar-specific hemagglutinating antigens of Haemophilus paragallinarum serovar B strains.

Many different media have been developed to support the growth of A. This extracted HI test has been validated mainly by using Page serovar C organisms.
