Pasteurella multocida infection in embryonated chicken eggs was studied by chorio-allantoic membrane inoculation. Strain differences were demonstrated in terms of lesion severity and time to death, especially during the first 24 h post-inoculation. A strain of low virulence gave a clear dose response but more virulent strains did not. Comparable results(More)
The growth of Pasteurella multocida strain X-73 (serotype 1) and P-1059 (serotype 3) in vivo instead of in vitro resulted in the expression of additional antigens, as revealed by SDS-PAGE profile and western blotting of the outer membrane detergent-insoluble fraction (DIF-OM). Minor protein bands ranging from 58-138 kDa were expressed by both strains; major(More)
The molecular characterization, the MICs of antibiotics (with clinical relevance in human and veterinary medicine) for the selected isolates of H. pullorum and its Pathogenicity to chickens were carried out. A total of 1800 samples (cloacal swabs, cecal contents and liver) were collected from chickens, turkeys and ducks. H. pullorum could be identified only(More)
Egypt has experienced outbreaks of avian influenza (AI) since 2006. A total of 3583 cloacal swabs were collected from chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys from commercial farms, backyards and local bird markets in Qena and Luxor governorates in South Egypt during 2009-2011. These samples were examined for the presence of AI virus (AIV) and positive samples(More)
