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.

71st Western Poultry Disease Conference

Duration: 18:36:58
20 Continuing Education Credit Hours

The title of the 71st Western Poultry Disease Conference is “Poultry Diseases of Concern in Modern Production Systems”. Within the last decade, the North American poultry industry has been challenged with a reemergence of several avian diseases that were traditionally of minor economic importance to welfare and production systems. Poultry producing regions have reported an increased detection of several transmissible diseases in commercial poultry flocks within recent years. These diseases have led to challenges in the field and have forced us to reevaluate the control and prevention strategies implemented by the industry.

To receive CE for the conference you must view ALL videos to at least 90% and answer the accompanying questions with a passing score. Once completed you will receive an email with your certificate, but you can also download a copy at any time by clicking on “My Certificates” under the “My Account” button at the top right of this page.
