Nephrotropic properties demonstrated by A/chicken/Alabama/75 (H4N8) following intravenous challenge of chickens.


Tissue tropism properties of A/chicken/Alabama/75 (H4N8) were examined after intravenous inoculation of 5-week-old specific-pathogen-free chickens. From 14 clinically normal chickens euthanatized on days 1-20 postinoculation, the frequencies of virus recovery were highest for cloacal swabs (86%), bursal swabs (64%), and kidney tissues (64%) and lowest for… (More)
