SIR, – Avian influenza viruses belong to influenza virus type A, which can be further classified into 16 haemagglutinin (HA) and nine neuraminidase (NA) subtypes. All of these subtypes have been detected in different combinations in wild birds ([Hinshaw and others 1980][1]). Wild birds, 
Seroprevalence of H5 avian influenza virus in birds in the United Arab Emirates
TLDR
Of these, only a H7N3 strain isolated from a peregrine falcon (Falco p Peregrinus) has been isolated sporadically from birds in the United Arab Emirates.
Molecular Surveillance of Avian Influenza in Live Bird Market of Qom City in Iran
TLDR
Live Bird Markets (LBM) are hypothesized to be a missing link in the epidemiology of AIV and it is important that the LBMs be routinely monitored for AIV.
Avian influenza virus in migratory and resident birds during migratory season in Boushehr, Iran
TLDR
This is the first report of isolation and molecular survey of AI virus from migratory and wild resident birds in Boushehr, Iran and low pathogenic AI viruses (H9 subtype) were detected by RT-PCR and virus isolation, but no highly pathogenic viruses were found during the period of study.
Molecular Surveillance of Avian Influenza in Bird Parks of Tehran, Iran
TLDR
This is the first report of AIV detection in this these species in Iran and surveillance activities for AI in wild birds should be continued to provide further virological (subtype) and epidemiological information about circulating viruses.
Newcastle Disease and Avian Influenza A Virus in Migratory Birds in Wetland of Boushehr-Iran
TLDR
The findings support the notion that wild aquatic and migratory birds may function as a reservoir for AIV and NDV in the south of Iran and indicate that wild birds play a minor role as a potential disseminator of NDVs and AIVS.
Humoral response to h5n2 vaccination in exotic birds in the United Arab Emirates
TLDR
After considering the risk of an outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza in exotic birds kept in open exhibits in two zoological collections in Dubai, it was decided to establish a prophylactic vaccination programme.
SEROPREVALENCE OF H 5 AVIAN INFLUENZA VIRUS IN BIRDS FROM THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
I N T R O D U C T I O N Avian influenza (AI) (Orthomyxoviridae) is a well-known viral disease that affects birds worldwide. In recent years, highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) has re-emerged
NUCLEOPROTEIN (NP) GENE BASED PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF IRANIAN H9N2 AVIAN INFLUENZA ISOLATES DURING 1998-2011
TLDR
The results shown here that further gene reassortment has occurred subsequent to the emergence of viruses in the Middle East highlights the potential for viruses to evolve rapidly.
Avian influenza virus monitoring in wintering waterbirds in Iran, 2003-2007
TLDR
Results of these investigations provide important information about the prevalence of LPAIV in wild birds in Iran, especially wetlands around the Caspian Sea which represent an important wintering site for migratory water birds.
Summary of Avian Influenza Activity in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australasia, 2002–2006
Abstract Between December 2003 and January 2004 highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) H5N1 infections of poultry were declared in China, Japan, South Korea, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, and
