Development of an experimental model of bacterial chondronecrosis with osteomyelitis in broilers following exposure to Staphylococcus aureus by aerosol, and inoculation with chicken anaemia and infectious bursal disease viruses.


A series of experiments was designed in an attempt to reproduce bacterial chondronecrosis with osteomyelitis in broiler chickens using a natural route of infection. Birds in isolators were exposed to a suspension of Staphylococcus aureus by aerosol or exposed to S. aureus and subsequently inoculated with chicken anaemia virus (CAV) alone, or with CAV and… (More)
