First report of Thelazia sp. from a captive Oriental white stork (Ciconia boyciana) in Japan. (1/871)

Nematodes of the genus Thelazia were recovered from the cornea and inferior conjunctival sac of an immature Oriental white stork (Ciconia boyciana). The bird hatched and reared at the Toyooka Oriental White Stork Breeding Center, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, but died of chlamydiosis. There were neither gross nor histopathologic ophthalmic lesions. The eye worm from a bird is believed to be first reported in Japan. As regarding reintroduction plan for the Oriental white stork, control measures for prevent further infection with the eye worm will be needed.  (+info)

Ultrastructure of surface components of Streptococcus gallolytics (S. bovis) strains of differing virulence isolated from pigeons. (2/871)

Virulence of Streptococcus gallolyticus (S. bovis) strains isolated from pigeons is associated with the presence of the extracellular proteins A, T1, T2 and T3. Based on the presence or absence of these proteins, six supernatant-phenotypes are distinguished. Experimental infection studies have indicated that strains belonging to the A-T1, A+T1, A+T2 and A+T3 groups are highly virulent for pigeons, strains belonging to the A-T3 groups are moderately virulent and A-T2 strains are of low virulence. In this study the surface structure of 15 pigeon S. gallolyticus strains representing high, moderate and low virulence supernatant-phenotypes was examined by electron microscopy. The presence of capsular material was determined by transmission electron microscopy after polycationic ferritin labelling and immunostabilization. Capsules from cells labelled with polycationic ferritin were usually thicker than those from cells exposed to antiserum. The capsule of the virulent strains had a regular, continuous appearance whilst irregularity of the capsule was a characteristic of the low virulence A-T2 strains. Negative staining revealed the presence of fimbriae in all strains belonging to the high virulence A-T1, A+T1, A+T2 and A+T3 supernatant groups and in one strain of the moderately virulent A-T3 group. The fimbriae were thin, flexible structures with a diameter of approximately 3-4 nm and a length of up to 700 nm. Fimbriae as described above were absent in two other A-T3 strains examined and in the low virulence A-T2 strains. Results from this study indicate that morphological differences in surface structure exist among virulent and low virulence pigeon S. gallolyticus strains, and that the capsule and/or fimbriae are possibly involved in virulence.  (+info)

Retinal TUNEL-positive cells and high glutamate levels in vitreous humor of mutant quail with a glaucoma-like disorder. (3/871)

PURPOSE: To investigate whether retinal cell death observed in an avian glaucoma-like disorder occurs by apoptosis and whether an increase in excitotoxic amino acid concentration in the vitreous humor is associated temporally with cell death in the retina. METHODS: Presumptive retinal apoptotic nuclei were identified by histochemical detection of DNA fragmentation (by TdT-dUTP terminal nick-end labeling [TUNEL]), and vitreal concentrations of glutamate and several other amino acids were determined by high-pressure liquid chromatography with fluorometric detection in the al mutant quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica) in which a glaucoma-like disorder develops spontaneously. RESULTS: TUNEL-labeled nuclei were located mostly in the ganglion cell layer (GCL) in the retina of mutant quails 3 months after hatching. However, labeled nuclei were also observed in the inner and outer nuclear layers. At 7 months, most TUNEL-positive nuclei were detected in the inner nuclear layer, whereas labeled cells in the GCL were reduced in number. No TUNEL-labeled nuclei were detected in the retina of control quails at any age. Vitreal concentrations of glutamate and aspartate were significantly increased in 1-month-old mutant quails compared with control animals. Concentrations decreased at 3 months, and no significant differences were observed between strains at 7 months. CONCLUSIONS: Presumptive apoptotic cell death is detected from 3 months after hatching in mutant quails and is not restricted to retinal ganglion cells. Cell death appears just after a significant increase in excitotoxic amino acid concentrations in the vitreous humor, suggesting a correlation between both events.  (+info)

In situ detection of the Clostridium botulinum type C1 toxin gene in wetland sediments with a nested PCR assay. (4/871)

A nested PCR was developed for detection of the Clostridium botulinum type C1 toxin gene in sediments collected from wetlands where avian botulism outbreaks had or had not occurred. The C1 toxin gene was detected in 16 of 18 sites, demonstrating both the ubiquitous distribution of C. botulinum type C in wetland sediments and the sensitivity of the detection assay.  (+info)

Nocardia nova causing pulmonary nocardiosis of black crakes (Limnocorax flavirostra). (5/871)

Natural nocardial infection has been reported in many different species including mammals and fish, but reports in birds remain uncommon. Eight juvenile Black Crakes (Limnocoraxflavirostra) died unexpectedly at the Basle Zoo. Necropsy revealed disseminated white, firm nodules, 1-3 mm in diameter, throughout the lung parenchyma. Histologically, the lungs contained multiple, often confluent granulomas with central necrosis. Delicate, gram-positive, 0.5- to 1.0-microm-wide, branching, occasionally beaded, filamentous organisms were visible in necrotic centers. These organisms were acid fast when stained with Fite-Faraco. No histologic lesions were seen in other organs. Nocardia nova was isolated from liver, spleen, kidney, and lung. Granulomatous and necrotizing nocardial pneumonia with agonal septicemia was diagnosed, suggesting an aerogenous infection. To our knowledge, this is the first reported epizootic outbreak of nocardiosis in birds, which is additionally unusual because it was caused by N. nova.  (+info)

Observed differences in virulence-associated phenotypes between a human clinical isolate and a veterinary isolate of Mycobacterium avium. (6/871)

Mycobacterium avium, the most common opportunistic pathogen in patients with AIDS, is frequently isolated from a variety of environmental sources, but rarely can these environmental isolates be epidemiologically linked with isolates known to cause human disease. Using a number of in vitro tissue culture assays, we found significant pathogenic differences between a serotype 4 human clinical M. avium isolate and a serotype 2 veterinary isolate. Cell association of the patient strain with a human intestinal cell line was 1.7 times that of the veterinary strain. Growth of this clinical strain in human peripheral blood mononuclear cell-derived macrophages increased from 12-fold higher than that of the veterinary isolate after 2 days to 200-fold higher after 4 days. By the conclusion of each experiment, lysis of all examined host cell types and accumulation of cell debris were observed in infections with the human isolate, but monolayers remained relatively intact in the presence of the animal isolate. The two strains also differed in the ability to stimulate human immunodeficiency virus replication in coinfected host cells, with p24 antigen levels after 6 days threefold higher in the cells coinfected with the clinical strain than in those infected with the veterinary strain. If the genetic differences responsible for the phenotypes observed in these assays can be identified and characterized, it may be possible to determine which M. avium strains in the environment are potential human pathogens.  (+info)

Eastern equine encephalitis virus in birds: relative competence of European starlings (Sturnus vulgaris). (7/871)

To determine whether eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) virus infection in starlings may be more fulminant than in various native candidate reservoir birds, we compared their respective intensities and durations of viremia. Viremias are more intense and longer lasting in starlings than in robins and other birds. Starlings frequently die as their viremia begins to wane; other birds generally survive. Various Aedes as well as Culiseta melanura mosquitoes can acquire EEE viral infection from infected starlings under laboratory conditions. The reservoir competence of a bird is described as the product of infectiousness (proportion of feeding mosquitoes that become infected) and the duration of infectious viremia. Although starlings are not originally native where EEE is enzootic, a starling can infect about three times as many mosquitoes as can a robin.  (+info)

Observations on pigeon circovirus infection in Ontario. (8/871)

Subclinical pigeon circovirus infection was diagnosed in 1-day-old to 6-week-old birds from a loft with no history of clinical disease. Pigeons from other lofts presented with various illnesses and were found at necropsy to be concurrently infected with pigeon circovirus.  (+info)

Thats actually pretty funny because I remember this one time I went on a family vacation and on this family vacation while being in San Francisco I took a steady picture of a seagull that was simply standing still. And right before I took the picture Mr. Seagull here decided to spread its wings and take off! But... Little did the bird know I took probably the nicest picture in the world of the seagull in mid air with wings completely expanded in mid flight. Sounds cool ey?? :) ...

In order to study how this works, the team videotaped Cosmo, a female, in four distinct social contexts. In the first context, Craige began recording Cosmo and left her house for the duration of the session. In the second, Craige sat in the room with Cosmo and interacted with her as normal. The third saw Craige in an adjacent room interacting with Cosmo normally by voice. Finally, the fourth context saw Craige and Colbert-White in the same room with Cosmo but reading to each other from online blog entries to simulate dialog and ignoring Cosmo (not interacting with her, making eye contact or any gesturing toward her).. "We split each transcription into separate text files according to the speaker," said Colbert-White. "We then compiled the Cosmo text files to create one large Cosmo corpus that could be divided according to the social context.". The results showed that Cosmos spontaneous vocal production changed significantly across the four social situations. They also indicated that Cosmos ...
The Canberra Cockatoos dominated the 2013 SILVA National Orienteering League, winning three out of four team titles and three individual titles.. The closest team competition was the senior womens. The Cockatoos and defending champions, the Victorian Nuggets, went into the seasons final race level. The Nuggets had a four-minute lead going into the final leg and were still in front at the spectator control, but, as with last year, the title came down to the last few controls of the last race. Jo Allison slipped through for the Cockatoos when Kathryn Preston made a late mistake, and while Preston did her best to come back over the last few controls she fell 50 metres short. A good final week saw the Tassie Foresters in third place.. The Cockatoos senior men led by only a point going into the seasons final week, but always looked to have something in hand, with the return of Dave Shepherd from injury adding depth to an already strong team. The Nuggets still had a mathematical chance of winning ...
Granted, not every small farm has a parrot on the premises. In fact, most of them probably dont. But part of our rural life includes a parrot in the house.. If youre not familiar with them, parrots are intelligent creatures. Some breeds are smarter than others, and some can talk more than others. And like every other set of creatures in this world, the intelligence and abilities varies within the breed as well.. I dont know how our little parrot would rank on the intelligence scale. As an African Grey parrot, her breed is supposed to have something like the intelligence of a 5-year-old, and the emotions of a 2-year-old. This adds up to a smart little feathered being that has a huge capacity to get into a world of trouble!. Now we could keep her locked in her cage at all times and avoid some of that trouble, but that would be like locking your kindergardener in the same room 24/7.

The subjects of this experiment were eight (four males and four females) sexually mature hand-raised western scrub-jays that had prior experience with the cache-recovery paradigm. The birds were housed in pairs in cages measuring 2 m wide × 1 m deep × 1 m high, and were maintained inside on a 12 L : 12 D cycle on a maintenance diet supplemented with nuts, seeds, dog biscuits, various fruits, wax worms and meal worms. The maintenance diet was removed from the home cage 2 h before an experimental trial, ensuring that the jays were mildly hungry during caching. All the caching trials took place in the cachers home cage and jays were provided with 50 waxworms. The jays could be separated by cage dividers, placing each jay into a 1 m × 1 m × 1 m compartment of the home-cage for testing.. During the alone condition, all but the experimental birds were removed from the home-cages in the room and placed in a near-by aviary, and the test bird could see all the remaining empty cages.

A Penticton Western News reader, Mark Lawrence, caught a rare sighting in Trout Creek recently.. Lawrence was out for a run in the rain when he saw a group of American White Pelicans. He said he made a mad dash home to get his camera and return to get this photo.. Margaret Holm, who has worked as the outreach co-ordinator for Okanagan Similkameen Conservation Alliance for many years, said it is a rare but not necessarily unusual sight to see.. "Many people when they think of pelicans think they are exotic things, and they definitely dont think they will see them inland. But yet, the pelicans can be found at a remote lake in the Chilcotin and every year they migrate to the Okanagan," she said. "Sometimes you might see them on Skaha Lake too in a small group or clusters of 10 or so. You wont believe your eyes and then they just disappear.". Holm said she has seen them on Osoyoos Lake as well.. "According to the book, Birds of the Okanagan Valley by Richard Cannings and his brother, they usually ...
Because the clinical symptoms of chlamydiosis are similar to those of other feline upper respiratory infections, it is important to accurately identify the bacteria before successful treatment can be administered. Traditionally culture was used, but it is very difficult to differentiate by culture C. felis from other bacteria also found in eye discharge. Immunofluorescent staining has also been used to identify C. felis, but this techniques sensitivity is also not high. However, molecular detection by PCR is a rapid, sensitive and specific method to detect this bacterium. ...

After the chicken, the House Sparrow is the most widely distributed bird species in the world, occurring on all continents except Antarctica and on most human-inhabited islands. Although its Latin name is Passer domesticus, it is certainly not domesticated. In fact, it is widely regarded as a pest species and is consequently not protected in most of its extensive range.

Water Birds is an informal name for a group including many though by no means all of the families that make their livings in the water. Pelecaniformes and Ciconiiformes as defined here depart considerably from tradition. Pelecaniformes consists of all taxa that are closer to Pelecanus (pelicans) than to Ciconia (typical storks), while Ciconiiformes is all taxa closer to Ciconia than Pelecanus. In practice, this results in Pelecaniformes swallowing up all the traditional ciconiiform families except Ciconiidae, which remains the sole ciconiiform family.. ...

The impact of founder events on levels of genetic variation in natural populations remains a topic of significant interest. Well-documented introductions provide a valuable opportunity to examine how founder events influence genetic diversity in invasive species. House finches (Carpodacus mexicanus) are passerine birds native to western North America, with the large eastern North American population derived from a small number of captive individuals released in the 1940s. Previous comparisons using amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers found equivalent levels of diversity in eastern and western populations, suggesting that any genetic effects of the founder event were ameliorated by the rapid growth of the newly established population. We used an alternative marker system, 10 highly polymorphic microsatellites, to compare levels of genetic diversity between four native and five introduced house finch populations. In contrast to the AFLP comparisons, we found significantly lower ...

Starting in 1994, because of the efforts of participants across North America, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology started the House Finch Disease Survey. This survey collected data on the spread and prevalence of a bacterial disease that now affects House Finches from the Atlantic to Pacific coasts. These data have been invaluable for documenting the spread of the disease and have motivating research that seeks to understand the reasons for persistence of the disease as well as its longer-term impact on House Finch abundance.. In 2008, the House Finch Disease Survey ended as a stand-alone project, but monitoring the disease continued through the data collection protocol in Project FeederWatch. We encourage FeederWatchers to look for signs of the disease in House Finches, American Goldfinches, and a few other finches coming to their feeders and to report whether they see it or not. Importantly, looking for the disease and NOT seeing signs of it is as valuable to report as observations of disease ...

After its initial appearance in New York in 1999, West Nile virus spread across the United States in just a few years and is now well established throughout North and South America. Both the mosquitoes that transmit it and the birds that are important hosts for the virus are abundant in areas that have been modified by human activities. As a result, transmission of West Nile virus is highest in urbanized and agricultural habitats.. "The virus has had an important impact on human health in the United States partly because it took advantage of species that do well around people," said Marm Kilpatrick, a biologist at the University of California, Santa Cruz, who studies the ecology of infectious diseases.. West Nile virus can infect a wide range of animals, including more than 300 species of birds and 60 species of mosquitoes. It also infects mammals, reptiles, and even amphibians. But researchers have found that in most places only a few key species of bird "hosts" and mosquito "vectors" are ...
People over 50 at higher risk to get severe illness. People over the age of 50 are more likely to develop serious symptoms of West Nile virus if they do get sick and should take special care to avoid mosquito bites. Being outside means youre at risk. The more time youre outdoors, the more time you could be bitten by an infected mosquito. Pay attention to avoiding mosquito bites if you spend a lot of time outside, either working or playing. Risk through medical procedures is very low. All donated blood is checked for West Nile virus before being used. The risk of getting West Nile virus through blood transfusions and organ transplants is very small, and should not prevent people who need surgery from having it. If you have concerns, talk to your doctor. Pregnancy and nursing do not increase risk of becoming infected with West Nile virus. The risk that West Nile virus may present to a foetus or an infant infected through breastmilk is still being evaluated. Talk with your care provider if you ...
INDIANAPOLISState health officials confirmed the first signs of West Nile virus activity in Indiana for 2014. Mosquitoes in Marshall and Pike counties have tested positive for West Nile virus. There have been no reported cases of West Nile virus in humans in the state this year. West Nile virus has been found throughout the entire state in past years, and positive mosquitoes are expected to be found in many other Indiana counties as the summer progresses. It is impossible to predict the severity of this years West Nile virus season as future temperatures and rainfall determine the level of mosquito populations. Its the time of year when we are at greater risk for West Nile virus infection, said State Health Commissioner William VanNess, M.D. But there are many ways people can help protect themselves and their families. You can prevent West Nile virus infection by following some simple and effective steps to prevent mosquito bites. Dr. VanNess recommends people take the following protective

A commercially viable vaccine for the prevention of West Nile virus infection is the overall objective of this project. West Nile virus was isolated for the first time in the Western hemisphere in 1999, when seven New York patients died as a result of a West Nile virus outbreak. The virus is still present in North America. A vaccine will be an important complement to other public health measures, particularly if this emerging pathogen becomes endemic in North America. Phase I of the project will study immunogens based on the envelope protein of a U.S. West Nile virus isolate. To date, we have prepared recombinant protein and synthetic peptide antigens, and have initiated preliminary immunization studies. In Phase I, mice will be vaccinated with these antigens, antibody responses will be evaluated, and protective immunity investigated. The antigens may also be suitable for serodiagnostic tests. Phase II experiments will further develop vaccine candidates, and include demonstration of efficacy in ...
BACKGROUND: Haemoproteus (Parahaemoproteus) species (Haemoproteidae) are widespread blood parasites that can cause disease in birds, but information about their vector species, sporogonic development and transmission remain fragmentary. This study aimed to investigate the complete sporogonic development of four Haemoproteus species in Culicoides nubeculosus and to test if phylogenies based on the cytochrome b gene (cytb) reflect patterns of ookinete development in haemosporidian parasites. Additionally, one cytb lineage of Haemoproteus was identified to the species level and the in vitro gametogenesis and ookinete development of Haemoproteus hirundinis was characterised. METHODS: Laboratory-reared C. nubeculosus were exposed by allowing them to take blood meals on naturally infected birds harbouring single infections of Haemoproteus belopolskyi (cytb lineage hHIICT1), Haemoproteus hirundinis (hDELURB2), Haemoproteus nucleocondensus (hGRW01) and Haemoproteus lanii (hRB1). Infected insects were ...

The Forest Red-Tailed Black Cockatoo faces "typical" problems such as habitat loss, but is also plagued by several unique threats and an unusual breeding biology…all of which complicated the formation of a recovery plan.. Black Cockatoos have very specific nest-site requirements, and once a suitable nesting hollow is located a pair generally uses it for many years. Over the past several decades, Black Cockatoos in natural habitats have come under pressure from burgeoning populations of feral honeybees and of other cockatoo species, including Galahs and Corellas. These aggressive insects and birds take over Black Cockatoo nests and severely impact the species ability to reproduce. Read More ». ...

Symptoms typically develop between 3 and 14 days after a person has been bitten by an infected mosquito.. Those who spend more time outdoors either working or playing are also more at risk as they stand more chance of being bitten by an infected mosquito.. Risk through medical procedures is very low as all donated blood is checked for West Nile virus before being used and the risk of getting West Nile virus through blood transfusions and organ transplants is very small, and should not prevent people who need surgery from having it.. Pregnancy and nursing do not increase the risk of becoming infected with West Nile virus and the risk that West Nile virus may infect a fetus or an infant through infected breast milk is still being evaluated - those with concerns should discuss them with their care provider - there are no reported adverse events following use of repellents containing DEET in pregnant or breast-feeding women - pregnant women and nursing mothers are encouraged to talk to their doctor ...
Variation in the prevalence of blood parasites among species of birds has been used to test hypotheses about the effects of sexual selection and parental investment on disease resistance, and how vector abundance influences infection. However, the factors causing this variation are still poorly understood. We assessed the statistical effects of biogeographic, plumage-related and life-history traits on the prevalence of the blood parasites Plasmodium, Haemoproteus, Leucocytozoon and Trypanosoma in European passerine birds. Most of the variation in parasite prevalence occurred at low taxonomic levels. Brighter male plumage and greater host body mass were associated with higher prevalence, explaining 32% of the total variation. Male plumage brightness remained a significant factor when we controlled for phylogenetic effects. These relationships were driven primarily by simuliid-transmitted parasites (Leucocytozoon, Trypanosoma), which were more frequent in species with northern distributions. Host ...
African greys, cockatoos and macaws delight in turning the colored nut up and down the threaded bolt, they dont seem to tire with undoing things.
Parrots are birds that come in a wide variety of bright colors. They are distinguished by having strong curved beaks and an upright posture. They are also noted for being highly intelligent for an animal. Their ability to imitate human speech makes them a popular pet, even though a parrot doesnt always completely understand things it says (parrots are intelligent birds and sometimes parrots have a degree of understanding of words they speak).[1] African Gray Parrots are especially notable for their eloquative talents. There are over 350 different species in the parrot family. The largest variety of parrots are macaws, which are native to South and Central America. Any kinds of birds are capable of carrying a very serious, transmittable to people, disease Ornithosis, usually without becoming sick themselves, but of all kinds of birds, infection of people happens most frequently from parrots; then a different name psittacosis of the same disease is used. That happens rarely, but if it does, the ...
Avian chlamydiosis (psittacosis) is caused by the intracellular bacterium Chlamydia (previously Chlamydophila) psittaci (Andersen and Franson 2007). Birds are natural hosts of C psittaci, and a wide range of avian species are susceptible to infection (Kaleta and Taday 2003). C psittaci causes potentially severe zoonotic disease, and captive psittacines have most often been implicated as the source of infection in humans (Vanrompay and others 1995).. While C psittaci infection is prevalent in wild columbiforms in Britain (Bracewell and Bevan 1986, Sharples and Baines 2009), its prevalence in wild passerines is unknown. Some studies in continental Europe have demonstrated a high prevalence of subclinical C psittaci infection in Paridae (tit species). For example, Holzinger-Umlauf and others (1997) detected Chlamydia sp. in 54 per cent of 399 free-living, apparently healthy Paridae in Germany, but Zweifel and others (2009) failed to detect C psittaci in any of the 527 free-living passerines ...

Michael, a retired veteran and tool and die- maker enjoyed his wood -work and summer hours working outdoors. Last October, he started feeling exhausted, followed by body aches and fever. His wife then saw a rash on his body and since she had heard and read about West Nile Virus, she suspected the same. Over a next three days, doctors confirmed the diagnosis. West Nile virus is commonly spread by infected mosquitoes. It can cause febrile illness, encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) or meningitis (inflammation of the lining of the brain and spinal cord).. Within a span of three days Michaels life had changed. From being a normal active individual he was on the bed all day unable to move.. An episode of pulmonary embolism followed two weeks after his fight against West Nile Virus and during his nine week stay in the hospital he combated MRSA, C.diff and pneumonia.

25th August 2005. The formal up-listing of all species and sub species of the Sulphur Crested Cockatoo (Cacatua sulphurea) and the Lilac - Crowned Amazon (Amazona finschi) to Annex A of the EC CITES Regulation came into force on the 12 August 2005.. This means that both species will now require Article 10 Certificates to allow their commercial use.. If you wish to apply for certificates then you must provide with your completed application, details of the birds origin and how it was acquired. Each application will then be considered by Defra individually on its merits.. You do not require an Article 10 Certificate if you only wish to keep the bird as a pet and will not be using it for commercial purposes. Defra aim to process most complete applications for certificates and permits within 15 working days, with the remainder processed within 30 working days, so you should allow this amount of time for your applications to go through.. These species are also subject to import and export controls. ...
The use of a mouse model to study the breadth of symptoms and disease severity seen in human West Nile virus (WNV) infection can provide insight into the kinetics of the immune response and the specific pathways responsible for control of WNV infection and viral clearance
Only about two persons out of 10 who are bitten by an infected mosquito will experience any illness. Illness from West Nile disease is usually mild and includes fever, headache and body aches, but serious illness, such as encephalitis and meningitis, and death are possible. Persons older than 50 years of age have the highest risk of severe disease.. "Mosquitoes are still present - despite the cooler temps. Keep mindful of this and protect yourself from being bitten," said Dr. Eric E. Whitaker, state public health director. West Nile virus is transmitted through the bite of a mosquito that has picked up the virus by feeding on an infected bird. Most people with the virus have no clinical symptoms of illness, but some may become ill three to 14 days after the bite of an infected mosquito.. To date, 71 counties out of 102 have reported positive test results for West Nile virus in mosquitoes, birds and horses. A list of those counties can be found on the IDPH website. Individuals can reduce their ...

What is West Nile virus? West Nile virus (WNV) is a virus carried by mosquitoes. Most people infected with the virus either dont have symptoms or have only a mild illness. Less than 1 in 100 people who are infected with the virus develop serious illness...
Staff Writer. Dassel man Jeremy Greiner couldnt believe how one little bug could do so much damage when three years ago he was infected with the West Nile Virus.. Because the virus was so uncommon at the time, doctors were unsure of Greiners rash and flu-like symptoms in the summer of 2003.. After he and his wife Corrine did some research, they realized the virus symptoms were exactly what Greiner had.. He informed the doctors and a test was done that confirmed Greiner was infected with the West Nile Virus.. Greiner was finally back to his normal self and working again at Big Tyme Collision after a month.. Symptoms can occur between three to 15 days after being infected and can result in headache, or in Greiners case a migraine, high fever, rash, muscle weakness, stiff neck, disorientation, convulsions, paralysis and coma.. Greiner was 27 years old at the time, "I can understand how older people can have an even harder time with this," he said.. With the virus attacking his nervous and immune ...
Everything does clear up, but its not a fun illness to have". Adults over the age of 50 are most at risk of serious health effects. Spraying is only triggered if additional human cases are confirmed within the same general vicinity as this would give some confidence that the unrelated individuals were infected by mosquitoes in the same area.. "Its important for people to be extra cautious and protect themselves against mosquito bites when outdoors this late in the season".. "Historically, reports of people becoming ill from West Nile virus peak in August and September", said Sarah Mattes of PHMDC. During 2002, the state documented its first human infections and 52 cases were reported that year.. "We had a warm winter, weve had a cool, wet summer, and all that contributes to the possible- kind of ideal storm for West Nile virus in southern Ontario this year". ...
Bornaviruses are considered to be the causative agent of proventricular dilatation disease (PDD) in psittacine birds. In order to detect haematological and blood chemistry changes during the development of PDD and a possible correlation with clinical signs and the virological status, six African grey parrots (Psittacus erithacus) were experimentally infected with parrot bornavirus 4 (PaBV-4) by subcutaneous route. All six parrots developed clinical signs of varying extent and successful infection was confirmed in all the birds by seroconversion or detection of RNA of the PaBV-4 infection strain. Based on population-based and intra-individual reference ranges established during 12 months prior to experimental infection, only minor haematological changes were detected in individual birds after infection. Changes in blood chemistry were restricted to aspartate aminotransferase, creatine kinase, total protein, glucose and uric acid. Plasma protein electrophoresis revealed marked changes starting 10 ...
Beak and feather disease virus (BFDV) causes the highly contagious, in some cases fatal, psittacine beak and feather disease in parrots. The European continent has no native parrots, yet in the past has been one of the worlds biggest importers of wild-caught exotic parrot species. Following the banning of this practice in 2007, the demand for exotic pet parrots has largely been met by established European breeding facilities, which can also supply buyers outside Europe. However, the years of unregulated importation have provided numerous opportunities for BFDV to enter Europe, meaning the likelihood of birds within captive breeding facilities being BFDV positive is high. This study examined the BFDV status of such facilities in Poland, a country previously shown to have BFDV among captive birds. A total of 209 birds from over 50 captive breeding facilities across Poland were tested, and 43 birds from 18 different facilities tested positive for BFDV. The full BFDV genomes from these 43 positive ...
Proventricular dilatation disease (PDD) is one of the worlds most important inflammatory diseases of the somatic and autonomic nervous system in psittacines. Only in 2008, almost 40 years after PDD has been described for the first time, one succeeded in identifying the infectious agent that is now known as Avian Bornavirus (ABV). In the present study, a total of 171 psittacines from Switzerland were examined on ABV by conventional reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and partly also by immunohistochemistry (IHC). Retrospectively paraffin-embedded brain samples from 69 PDD cases from 1989 to 2002 were analysed. The prospective study consisted of 102 psittacine samples of choanae and/or cloacal swabs of birds with PDD-suspicion, of clinically normal birds from flocks with confirmed PDD, of animals from a parrot rescue center as well as from necropsy material from psittacines with clinical and/or gross PDD-suspicion. This work shows a clear relationship between PDD and ABV. ...
Avian bornavirus (ABV) is the presumed causative agent of proventricular dilatation disease (PDD), a major fatal disease in psittacines. However, the influencing factors and pathogenesis of PDD are not known and natural ABV infection exhibits remarkable variability. We investigated the course of infection in 18 cockatiels that were intracerebrally and intravenously inoculated with ABV. A persistent ABV infection developed in all 18 cockatiels, but, as in natural infection, clinical disease patterns varied. Over 33 weeks, we simultaneously studied seroconversion, presence of viral RNA and antigens, infectious virus, histopathologic alterations, and clinical signs of infection in the ABV-infected birds. Our study results further confirm the etiologic role of ABV in the development of PDD, and they provide basis for further investigations of the pathogenetic mechanisms and disease-inducing factors for the development of PDD ...
Proventricular Dilatation Disease (PDD) is a wasting type disease that can affect and is fatal in captive and free-ranging birds; especially young birds. This disease was first recognized in 1971 and since then has been seen in many species including cockatoos, conures, grey parrots, cockatiels, Eclectus parrots, thick billed Amazons, Blue fronted Amazons, and budgies, as well as macaws. This disease is thought to be caused by a virus and can be passed on to other birds, but not humans. It is also known as Proventricular Dilatation Syndrome, Neuropathic Gastric Dilatation, or Macaw Wasting Disease.
A study was undertaken to identify Mareks disease virus (MDV) antigen by PCR and AGID and to test the significance of PCR and AGID by McNemars test in detection of MDV antigen in outbreak in layer flocks. A total of twelve different MD outbreak flocks with varying flock size were selected in this study. Feather follicles were collected from 10 apparently healthy birds, 10 clinically affected birds and 10 dead birds separately in each outbreak. All the samples were subjected to PCR and AGID. In PCR, 42 (35.00%), 68 (56.67%) and 106 (88.33%) samples were positive to MDV in apparently healthy birds, clinically affected birds and dead birds respectively and in AGID 28 (23.33%), 56 (46.67%) and 98 (81.67%) samples were positive to MDV in apparently healthy birds, clinically affected birds and dead birds respectively. In testing the significance of PCR and AGID in detecting MDV, significant difference existed between the two tests in feather tips of apparently healthy birds (P < 0.05), whereas there ...
House finches are competent hosts for both West Nile and St. Louis encephalitis viruses and frequently become infected during outbreaks. In the current study, House finches were infected initially with either West Nile or St. Louis encephalitis viruses and then challenged 6 weeks post infection with either homologous or heterologous viruses. Although mortality rates were high during initial infection with West Nile virus, prior infection with either virus prevented mortality upon challenge with West Nile virus. Prior infection with West Nile virus provided sterilizing immunity against both viruses, whereas prior infection with St. Louis encephalitis virus prevented viremia from St. Louis encephalitis virus, but only reduced West Nile virus viremia titers. Immunologic responses were measured by enzyme immunoassay and plaque reduction neutralization tests. Heterologous challenge with West Nile virus in birds previously infected with St. Louis encephalitis virus produced the greatest immunologic response,
