Now, the modified PCR allows any laboratory to extract virus DNA from preserved tissues to detect Marek's disease
B-haplotype influence on Marek's disease
, Rous sarcoma, and lymphoid leukosis virus-induced tumors in chickens.
Holding the line against tumor-causing Marek's disease
has required the nonstop diligence of poultry researchers.
Hilleman pioneered the development of numerous vaccines including those for hepatitis A, both plasma-derived and recombinant hepatitis B, measles, mumps, rubella, MMR, pneumococcus, meningococcus and Marek's Disease
(MD) virus (MDV) is an [alpha]-herpesvirus that causes MD, a lymphoproliferative disease in chickens.
The disease was later found to be caused by several viruses, including avian leukosis virus (ALV) and Marek's disease
A questionnaire was widely distributed in 2011 to estimate the global prevalence of Marek's disease
(MD) and gain a better understanding of current control strategies and future concerns.
Embrex is best known for its Inovoject(R) system, now used to vaccinate more than 80 percent of the poultry raised in North America against Marek's disease
Before the map, Cheng had found what he thinks are three genes that confer resistance to Marek's disease
, his chief interest.
In both cases, test results were negative for Marek's disease
virus, avian leukosis virus, and reticuloendotheliosis virus.
In an advance that could usher in new vaccines for protecting poultry, Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists have sequenced the genetic code of the chicken herpesvirus that causes Marek's disease
Comparison of blood and feather pulp (FP) samples for the diagnosis of Marek's disease
(MD) and for monitoring Marek's diseases
vaccination in chickens (serotypes 2 and 3 vaccines) by real time-PCR was evaluated.
