Interaction of Avian Influenza Virus with other Pathogens
Avian influenza viruses are classified as highly pathogenic (HP) or low pathogenic (LP). Haemagglutinin (HA) plays a key role in the pathogenicity of avian influenza virus....
Epidemology of Avian Influenza
There are many pathogens that can cause disease in poultry, of which viruses remain a key concern. More specifically avian influenza (Orthomyxoviridae family, Influenzavirus A genus) presents a major transboundary viral disease threat with potential for...
