In this study, the researchers present the results of a series of experiments involving chickens and Marek's disease.
This paper reviews the three viral diseases that most commonly induce IS or subclinical IS in chickens: Marek's disease virus (MDV), chicken infectious anemia virus (CIAV), and infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV), as well as the interactions among them.
We have demonstrated that these cells may be involved in the pathogenesis of an economically important infectious disease called "Marek's disease" in chickens.
Davison recommends choosing to vaccinate for Marek's disease. "The only vaccine I would do would be the Marek's vaccine.
HVT proved to be an excellent candidate for vector since it (i) confers long-term immunity due to its persistence in the host, (ii) has excellent safety characteristics, (iii) provides good protection when administered at hatch or in ovo, (iv) overcomes MDA, (v) can be used in validated combinations with certain other Marek's disease vaccines of other serotypes (e.g., [8, 9]), and (vi) may provide possibility to apply the DIVA strategy [10].
For example, 79 miRNAs that showed distinct expressions between marek's disease virus infected-chicken splenic tumors and non-tumorous spleen tissues were identified by microarray [11].
(2008) Marek's disease vaccines: a solution for today but a worry for tomorrow?
One of the latest tools developed by scientists at the Agricultural Research Service's Avian Disease and Oncology Laboratory (ADOL) in East Lansing, Michigan, is a modified polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test to detect unique genetic sequences of both Marek's disease and avian reticuloendotheliosis viruses in various tissues from chickens.
Among such vaccines that are in the market, according to FAO, are the gene-deleted bovine herpesvirus 1 (BoHV-1) for cattle or viral vector vaccines against poultry diseases such as Marek's Disease, Fowl Pox and Gumboro or against West Nile virus (WNV) in horses.
Marek's disease, which was included in the hemolymphatic system, accounted for 492 cases, 13.3% of the total.
The differential diagnosis of lymphoid leucosis and Marek's disease in chicken is usually made on a number of factors which include age, incidence, clinical signs, macroscopic observation and histology (Purchase and Burmester, 1978; Wadsworth et al., 1981).
Immunization of chickens against IBD using a vector that in vivo expresses VP2 has been previously reported using an avian herpesvirus vector [20], a fowlpox virus vector [17], a fowl adenovirus vector [10] and a Marek's disease virus vector [19].
