Avian polyomavirus, described originally as budgerigar fledgling disease virus, has been associated with devastating contagious disease outbreaks in budgerigar aviaries. At present, this virus affects a wide range of psittacine and non-psittacine birds worldwide, and the serum neutralisation test is used for the serodiagnosis of avian polyomavirus infections. A blocking enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was developed for the screening of large numbers of sera collected from various avian… CONTINUE READING
