Disinfectant developed for poultry diseases

SOUTH AFRICA - A unique disinfectant, which is highly effective in the treatment of diseases in poultry, has been developed by Robert Bragg, a professor at the University of the Free State.

The disinfectant controls the spread of bacteria, viruses and fungi.

Bragg says his department is also on the verge of discovering an antidote against the virus that attacks the immune system of birds. He has developed a disinfectant against Newcastle sickness, which affects chickens, in collaboration with a company in Stellenbosch.

The product is registered in 15 countries and is also very effective against avian influenza.
