Vaccination for notifiable avian influenza in poultry
|Author(s) :||I. Capua|
Notifiable avian influenza (NAI) is a listed disease of the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) that has become a disease of great importance both for animal and human health. Prior to 2000, vaccination against NAI was discouraged and used to aid control of only a limited number of outbreaks, without reaching the goal of eradication. Pivotal work on the application of a vaccination programme aimed at, and resulting in, eradication was carried out in Italy, and was followed by other research, e.g. in Hong Kong and the United States of America. Given the spread of Asian lineage highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) H5N1 to three continents, vaccination is now being used on a wide scale under different conditions, which in most cases are not ideal.
