Etiology

ETIOLOGY

Classification of the causative agent

Virus family Orthomyxoviridae, genus Influenzavirus A, B. To date, all highly pathogenic isolates have been influenza A viruses of subtypes H5 and H7


Current health problem avian bird flu

HOST

  • Highly pathogenic avian influenza isolates have been obtained primarily from chickens and turkeys 

  • It is reasonable to assume all avian species are susceptible to infection


Transmission

TRANSMISSION

  • Direct contact with secretions from infected birds, excretion especially feces 

  • Contaminated feed, water, equipment and clothing 

  • Clinically normal waterfowl and sea birds may introduce the virus into flocks 

  • Broken contaminated eggs may infect chicks in the incubator   


Sources of virus

SOURCES OF VIRUS

  • Feces, respiratory secretions 

  • Highly pathogenic viruses may remain viable for long period of time in infected feces, tissues and water

WHO: Bird droppings prime origin of bird flu( 2004-01-17 10:20) (chinadaily.com.cn/Agencies)

  • Bird flu, which has killed at least 13 people in Vietnam, is largely transmitted through bird droppings and uncooked meat, the World Health Organization (WHO) said, doubting the need to ban imports of chicken meat by some countries.

Identifying Infectious Bird Diseases In Birds: A list of symptoms

  • Sudden increase in bird deaths in your flock

  • Sneezing, gasping for air, coughing and nasal discharge

  • Watery and green diarrhea

  • Lack of energy and poor appetite

  • Drop in egg production or soft- or thin-shelled mis-shapen eggs

  • Swelling around the eyes, neck and head


Complications

COMPLICATIONS

Most people with bird flu have signs and symptoms of conventional influenza.

Some also develop life-threatening complications such as viral pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndrome

But the greatest complication of bird flu is still hypothetical


Solutions

SOLUTIONS

  • No specific treatment

  • But now, the primary treatment option remains the flu drug oseltamivir (Tamiflu), that works by preventing the virus from escaping its host cell


Sanitary prophylaxis

Sanitary prophylaxis

  • Avoidance of contact between poultry and wild birds, particularly waterfowl 

  • Avoidance of the introduction of birds of unkown health status into a flock 

  • Control of human traffic 

  • Proper cleaning and disinfection procedures 

  • Practice an “all in-all out” system in the poultry farm


In outbreaks

In outbreaks

  • Slaughtering of all birds 

  • Disposal of carcasses and all poultry products 

  • Cleaning and

  • disinfection 

  • Allow at least 21

  • days before
