Riemerella anatipestifer is the causative agent of polyserositis and septicaemia in waterfowl. Twenty-one serotypes have been reported, and there is a strong variation in virulence between strains according to serotype or strain. However, little information is available to assess virulence, such as virulence-associated genes; thus, it is difficult to estimate the risk from field strains. Hence, we established a chicken embryo lethality assay (ELA) model to determine the virulence of R… CONTINUE READING
