Freeze Dried Live Vaccine – Avian Encephalomyelitis (AE) – Calnek 1143 strain – SPF origin.

Avian Encephalomyelitis

Avian encephalomyelitis (AE) is caused by a picornavirus with a predilection for the central nervous system. AE occurs worldwide and results in paralysis, ataxia and muscular dystrophy in young chicks. In layers and breeders the infection is subclinical and results in declreased egg production. Vertical transmission is a very important means of AE virus dissemination. Infected chicks (congenitally or by contact) display characteristic neurological signs. Control of AE is obtained via vaccination of breeder flocks with live vaccines.
