Molecular interventions and pathogenic clues for identification of infectious bursal disease virus in poultry
TV Meenambigai, C Sworna Kumari and K Anbukumar
Infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV), a non-enveloped double stranded virion is the etiological agent causing clinical infection in young poultry. IBDV has two serotypes and serotype 1 affects chicken, by destroying the IgM bearing lymphocytes in bursa of fabricus. The poultry sector encounters severe economic loss when the birds get infected, as the entire flock is lost. Appropriate diagnosis and proper vaccination schedules need to be followed to combat the odds of the disease. The pathogenic pathways of IBDV virus and the molecular interventions in diagnosis is discussed in this review.
