We examined in 2 mammalian models the pathogenicity and transmissibility of LPAI
and HPAI H7N9 subtype viruses isolated from chickens in Tennessee (ck/TN) and evaluated the capacity for these viruses to replicate in a representative human respiratory cell line.
05) among quarters and sporadic cases of LPAI
H9N2 were reported in all seasons with no significant difference (P>0.
In the past, USDA has not had a compensation program for LPAI
The publication concludes: "Taken together, these data indicate that a replikin peptide vaccine specifically made against the H5N1 Black Duck/NC/674-964/06 and administered 3 times to the upper-respiratory tract, was capable of protecting chickens from infection and shedding of the homologous virus, which is extremely important because reduced virus shedding and transmission decreases the potential for H5 LPAI
viruses to become HPAI viruses.
Different subtypes of LPAI
viruses found in Russia and Asia were identified as closest relatives for the 2 PA clusters (online Technical Appendix 1 Table 3).
The highest exposure rate to HPAI and other LPAI
virus make them highly susceptible.
The office of the Land Ports Authority of India shall temporarily, be located at Vigyan Bhawan Annexe till the LPAI
sets up its own Head Quarter at New Delhi.

Based on the median bird infectious dose, we found that environmental contamination is two times higher for LPAI
- than HPAI-infectious ducks, which implies that susceptible birds may have a higher probability of infection during LPAI
than HPAI outbreaks.
is endemic in wild birds, low pathogenicity outbreaks are not unusual.
Whereas HPAI is highly contagious and quickly fatal, LPAI
can circulate within flocks without noticeable signs.
Avian influenza (AI) viruses are classified into low pathogenic (LPAI
) and high pathogenic (HPAI) forms on the basis of genetic sequence and the severity of illness they cause in infected birds, The majority of AI virus strains are LPAI
and typically cause little or no clinical signs in infected birds; however, some LPAI
virus strains can mutate under field conditions into HPAI viruses.
