Spotlight on Avian Pathology
Supporting the recent Spotlight on Avian Pathology launch article presented by Venugopal Nair, we now provide a virtual special issue focused on Marek’s disease (MD). MD remains one of the most widespread and economically important diseases of poultry, incurring annual losses of up to $2billion per annum. Vaccines against MD are available and have proven highly successful, but the ability of the MD virus to evolve and become increasingly virulent poses an ongoing challenge.
In this virtual special issue we present a selection of articles published recently in Avian Pathology, including insights into MD diagnosis and vaccine development, the impact of co-infection and associated immune characterisation.
