Avian influenza (“bird flu”) is an infectious disease of birds caused by type A strains of the influenza virus
Avian influenza viruses do not normally infect humans. However, some are zoonotic, meaning that they can infect humans and cause disease.
Droplet RT with symptoms (malaise, cough, sore throat). Secretion .
severe respiratory illness (e.g. pneumonia and respiratory failure)
Death may occur.
Direct contact with infected poultry
surfaces and objects contaminated
Directly from birds or from avian virus-contaminated environments to people
Prevention and control
Avoid sources of exposure whenever possible.
People who work with poultry : use of personal protective equipment and hand hygiene.
– Humoral : not important
– Cellular : TC cells and Macrophage
Avian Influenza Diagnosis
– Clinical Signs
– Virus Isolation and Characterization
– Histopathology and Immunochemistry
Anti viral drugs :
Neuraminidase inhibitors : such as Zanamivir
inhibitors of the viral M2 protein : such as Amantadine.
