Avian Metapneumovirus Symposium Webinar 2024
May 16th from 1:30 - 4:30 PM EST
3 Continuing Education Credit Hours

Dr. Sunil Mor, Dr. Molly Parker, Dr. Sarah Tilley, Dr. Dallas Clontz, and Dr. Holly Sellers 

Hosted by the TIME and Respiratory Diseases Committees

This webinar is being presented to review the most recent and up-to-date information surrounding the current avian metapneumovirus outbreak in chickens and turkeys in the United States. Within this webinar broiler and turkey veterinarians will present on the field presentation and clinical findings of the disease, diagnostic and research laboratories will present on laboratory identification, sequencing, and virus isolation efforts, and histopathologists will present on specific lesions seen with infection of AMPV.

The overall learning objective of this webinar will be an understanding of the clinical presentation and lesions after infection, risk factors of disease, and diagnostic findings of the current AMPV impacting the US poultry sector.


Avian Metapneumovirus: Tracing Its Impact in the United States and Navigating Current Outbreak Dynamics
Dr. David Halvorson and Dr. Steven Clark
Organized by the AAAP Epidemiology Committee
Avian metapneumovirus (aMPV) has been a significant concern in the poultry industry. This webinar discusses the history of aMPV in the United States. We explore the evolutionary trajectory of the virus, its transmission dynamics, and the factors contributing to its spread. Presented by Dr. David Halvorson (Professor from the University of Minnesota). Additionally, the webinar provides up-to-date insights into the current outbreak situation, including the latest trends, control measures, and ongoing research efforts aimed at mitigating its impact. Presented by Dr. Steven Clark (Professional Veterinary Services Manager from Turkeys Huepharma Inc.). 
Recent Outbreaks Infectious Laryngotracheitis (ILT): What have we learned?
View Abstract
Maricarmen García
Recent outbreaks of ILTV have renewed our interest in genotyping and characterizing outbreak-related isolates and reviewing experimental evidence related to the efficacy of different vaccination programs available to combat the disease. We will cover both topics in the presentation. This presentation will be conducted by Dr. Maricarmen Garcia on February 16, 2024 at 2:00PM EST and will be recorded for registrants to access.

Poultry Medicine Course for Veterinarians in Private Practice

8 Continuing Education Credit Hours

This online training course is designed to educate general-practice veterinarians about poultry issues in small and backyard poultry flocks. The course was made possible through collaboration between the University of Kentucky, Utah State University, and Michigan State University. Funding was provided by a USDA-NIFA grant.

The course consists of a series of individual modules, which allow each participant to advance at their own pace. At the end of each module, there is a short quiz consisting of true/false and/or multiple-choice questions.

AAAP Webinar Series Part 4 - Jordan

New IBV Variant Designated DMV/1639 View Abstract
Brian Jordan 

Duration: 01:07:16
1.5 Continuing Education Credit Hours

Avian infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) causes an economically significant upper respiratory tract disease in chickens. Like most RNA viruses, IBV is genetically diverse due to a high mutation rate and then selection of these variants through host fitness and immune pressure. New IBV variants are continuously emerging, which complicates vaccination-based infectious bronchitis (IB) control. The most recent variant of IBV, DMV/1639, was originally isolated and characterized on the Delaware, Maryland, Virginia (DelMarVa) peninsula in 2011, but did not cause significant economic losses in the broiler industry until the winter of 2014/2015.

AAAP Webinar Series Part 3 - Sellers

Emergence of Inclusion body hepatitis in broilers | View Abstract
Holly Sellers

Duration: 01:17:50
1.5 Continuing Education Credit Hours

Inclusion body hepatitis (IBH) is a disease of young broilers caused by aviadenoviruses. Clinical signs often include sudden mortality and grossly apparent swollen livers with pale or hemorrhagic foci. Five groups of aviadenoviruses have been identified based on full genome sequencing and restriction enzyme digest patterns of genomic DNA. Within the 5 species of aviadenoviruses, 12 serotypes (1-7, 8a, 8b, 9-11) have been identified by virus neutralization assays. Not all aviadenoviruses are associated with disease; however, viruses belonging to FAV groups D and E have been associated with IBH.

AAAP Webinar Series Part 2 - Zavala

Recombinant Vaccines for Poultry: An Overview of the Basics | View Abstract
Guillermo Zavala 

Duration: 01:35:04
1.5 Continuing Education Credit Hours

An application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for one of the first recombinant vaccines for use in poultry was filed in 1985 under the trademark Vectorvax™, by Syntro Animal Health, Inc. This vaccine, vectored in Avipoxvirus and expressing an immunogenic protein of Newcastle disease virus, became a trademark later owned by Schering Plough Animal Health Corporation, but was never used in a commercial setting.
