Birds play a central role in WNV epidemiology by spreading and amplifying the virus. Increasing numbers of WNV isolates are detected in Europe, and the virulence of these genetically variable isolates is not well characterized for birds. Therefore, we investigated whether SPF chickens could be a valuable avian model for the pathotyping of WNV strains. One-day-old SPF chickens were inoculated subcutaneously (SC) or intracerebrally (IC) with four lineage 1 WNV strains (Is98, It2008, Fr2000 or… CONTINUE READING
