Avian influenza A viruses (IAV) have received significant attention due to the threat they pose to human, livestock, and wildlife health.
In this review, we focus on what is known about IAV dynamics in less common avian species that may play a role in trafficking IAVs to poultry operations. Specifically, we focus on synanthropic bird species. Synanthropic species, otherwise known as peridomestic, are species that are ecologically associated with humans and anthropogenically modified landscapes, such as agricultural and urban areas.
Aquatic birds such as waterfowl and shorebirds are the species most commonly associated with avian IAVs, and are generally considered the reservoir or maintenance hosts in the natural ecology of these viruses.

VIRUSES 28/05/20 Avian Influenza A Virus Infects Swine Airway Epithelial Cells without Prior Adaptation.
Pigs play an important role in the interspecies transmission of influenza A viruses (IAV).
The porcine airway epithelium contains binding sites for both swine/human IAV (α2,6-linked sialic acids) and avian IAV (α2,3-linked sialic acids) and therefore is suited for adaptation of viruses from other species as suggested by the “mixing vessel theory”. Here, we applied well-differentiated swine airway epithelial cells to find out whether efficient infection by avian IAV requires prior adaption. Furthermore, we analyzed the influence of the sialic acid-binding activity and the virus-induced detrimental effects. Surprisingly, an avian IAV H1N1 strain circulating in European poultry and waterfowl shows increased and prolonged viral replication without inducing a strong innate immune response. This virus could infect the lower respiratory tract in our precision cut-lung slice model.

VIRUSES 02/09/19 Virus Shedding of Avian Influenza in Poultry: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis. Understanding virus shedding patterns of avian influenza virus (AIV) in poultry is important for understanding host-pathogen interactions and developing effective control strategies.
Many AIV strains were studied in challenge experiments in poultry, but no study has combined data from those studies to identify general AIV shedding patterns. These systematic review and meta-analysis were performed to summarize qualitative and quantitative information on virus shedding levels and duration for different AIV strains in experimentally infected poultry species. Methods were designed based on the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines. Four electronic databases were used to collect literature. A total of 1155 abstract were screened, with 117 studies selected for the qualitative analysis and 71 studies for the meta-analysis.

SCI. 27/04/19 Epidemiology of Avian Influenza Viruses. Avian influenza (AI) is a highly contagious viral disease, characterized by an intense circulation in many wild waterbird reservoir populations, with periodical introduction into the domestic poultry sector.
AI viruses have been the source of devastating economic losses in the poultry industry over the last three decades and have become a major veterinary and public health concern due to their zoonotic potential (1, 2). Outbreaks caused by highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) viruses have caused serious animal health crises worldwide, such as the high case fatality rates in poultry, the control measures that are applied (massive pre-emptive culling or vaccination) and the consequences of virus detection on the international poultry produce trade.
Undoubtedly, the rapid and continuous evolution of AI viruses make their surveillance and control particularly challenging. Timely information is required to optimize the emergency response during outbreaks.

Sci. 2019, 6(1), 5; Innate Immune Responses to Avian Influenza Viruses in Ducks and Chickens. Mallard ducks are important natural hosts of low pathogenic avian influenza (LPAI) viruses and many strains circulate in this reservoir and cause little harm.
Some strains can be transmitted to other hosts, including chickens, and cause respiratory and systemic disease. Rarely, these highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) viruses cause disease in mallards, while chickens are highly susceptible. The long co-evolution of mallard ducks with influenza viruses has undoubtedly fine-tuned many immunological host–pathogen interactions to confer resistance to disease, which are poorly understood. Here, we compare innate responses to different avian influenza viruses in ducks and chickens to reveal differences that point to potential mechanisms of disease resistance.
Mallard ducks are permissive to LPAI replication in their intestinal tissues without overtly compromising their fitness.

BMC 26/06/15 Avian influenza virus exhibits distinct evolutionary dynamics in wild birds and poultry. Influenza A viruses infect a wide range of animals including humans, pigs, horses, and poultry. However, with the exception of a small number of viruses recently described in bats ,, wild (water) birds are the natural reservoir for all haemaggluttinin (H) and neuraminidase (N) subtypes, harbouring 16 of the former and 9 of the latter -. With approximately 10,000 bird species present in terrestrial and aquatic environments, the often large sizes and densities of bird populations are a boon for the spread of infectious diseases such as influenza.

Open Access Abstract Wild birds are the primary source of genetic diversity for influenza A viruses that eventually emerge in poultry and humans.
Much progress has been made in the descriptive ecology of avian influenza viruses (AIVs), but contributions are less evident from quantitative studies (e.g., those including disease dynamic models). Transmission between host species, individuals and flocks has not been measured with sufficient accuracy to allow robust quantitative evaluation of alternate control protocols. We focused on the United States of America (USA) as a case study for determining the state of our quantitative knowledge of potential AIV emergence processes from wild hosts to poultry.

Abstract Accumulating infections of highly pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza in humans underlines the need to track the ability of these viruses to spread among humans. A human-transmissible avian influenza virus is expected to cause clusters of infections in humans living in close contact. Therefore, epidemiological analysis of infection clusters in human households is of key importance. Infection clusters may arise from transmission events from (i) the animal reservoir, (ii) humans who were infected by animals (primary human-to-human transmission), or (iii) humans who were infected by humans (secondary human-to-human transmission).

PLOS 11/11/14 Transfer of Maternal Antibodies against Avian Influenza Virus in Mallards (Anas platyrhynchos) Maternal antibodies protect chicks from infection with pathogens early in life and may impact pathogen dynamics due to the alteration of the proportion of susceptible individuals in a population. We investigated the transfer of maternal antibodies against avian influenza virus (AIV) in a key AIV host species, the mallard (Anas platyrhynchos). Combining observations in both the field and in mallards kept in captivity, we connected maternal AIV antibody concentrations in eggs to (i) female body condition, (ii) female AIV antibody concentration, (iii) egg laying order, (iv) egg size and (v) embryo sex. We applied maternity analysis to the eggs collected in the field to account for intraspecific nest parasitism, which is reportedly high in Anseriformes, detecting parasitic eggs in one out of eight clutches.
AIV antibody prevalence in free-living and captive females was respectively 48% and 56%, with 43% and 24% of the eggs receiving these antibodies maternally. Figures Introduction. Rev. Bras. Cienc.

Bird flu or Avian flu is an infectious disease caused by an influenza A virus of the Orthomyxoviridae family. Avian influenza virus (AIV) causes significant economic losses to the poultry industry worldwide and threatens human life with a pandemic.
Pandemic of AIV is the human infection caused by the appearance of a “new” influenza virus as a result of antigenic shift or antigenic drift. Several outbreaks of AIV caused by the rapid spread of infection have been identified. Therefore, there is an urgent need for rapid diagnostic methods that would enable early detection and improve measurements to control the AIV outbreak. J Infect Dev Ctries 2011; 5(8):565-570.

Selection of peptides that interact with AIV Peptides selected from phage display library have been used as effective anti-microbial agents in previous studies .
In this study, a 7-mer constrained phage displayed random peptide library containing about 3.7 × 109 different recombinant bacteriophages were used to select ligands that interact with the purified target molecule, AIV subtype H9N2. Four rounds of panning were carried out, each with a slight increase in stringency to isolate high-affinity peptide ligands. Table 1 shows the heptapeptide sequences obtained from four rounds of panning the peptide library against AIV subtype H9N2. Seventeen out of 35 phages analysed from the fourth round represented the sequence NDFRSKT and other major sequences found in the final round of panning were LPYAAKH and ILGDKVG. Table 1.
