THE PIRBRIGHT INSTITUTE 26/10/16 Promising results in search for a more efficient and effective vaccine against Marek’s disease

Using a recombinant (new combinations of genetic material) adenovirus which carries a single gene from a virulent strain of Marek’s disease virus, they are hopeful that further research and trials could lead to the production of an effective MD vaccine that is cheaper and easier to produce - and crucially has no possibility of reverting to a virulent strain. Marek’s disease virus (MDV), is a highly contagious airborne pathogen that infects poultry, costing the industry around £1 billion a year. MD is currently controlled through vaccination and over 20 billion vaccine doses are administered annually worldwide.

Poultry News Successful Marek’s Disease Vaccination: The Devil is in the Details 13 June 2016 US - Marek’s disease (MD) is a worldwide problem in broiler production, and it’s of increasing concern in poultry-dense areas where the disease challenge is high.

POULTRYSITE 13/06/16 Successful Marek’s Disease Vaccination: The Devil is in the Details

This is especially true for operations growing large broilers. Here on the Delmarva Peninsula, MD has been a persistent challenge since 1923, when the commercial broiler industry was founded. We’ve learned that successful MD control requires vigilance and a carefully planned and administered MD vaccination program. Before we discuss vaccination programs, however, let’s briefly review the disease’s etiology and its effect on poultry operations.Condemnations MD, caused by an oncogenic alphaherpesvirus, results in neuropathy and lymphomatous tumors of the skin and internal organs in older broilers.

In the Delmarva region, leukosis condemnations peak in May, when the last winter-started flock is processed. Roaster challenge.

USDA - AOUT 2014 - Developing Tools To Fight Marek’s Disease

One of the latest tools developed by scientists at the Agricultural Research Service’s Avian Disease and Oncology Laboratory (ADOL) in East Lansing, Michigan, is a modified polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test to detect unique genetic sequences of both Marek’s disease and avian reticuloendotheliosis viruses in various tissues from chickens. Marek’s disease is caused by a highly contagious herpes virus that primarily affects young adult chickens. It causes severe production losses and usually death and is spread from bird to bird by contaminated dust and dander in chicken houses. Avian reticuloendotheliosis, a retrovirus, infects a broader host range—chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, and quail.

It can also cause tumors, production losses, and death in affected birds.

The CVI988 vaccine provides good protection against the LCC and LLY strains. The CVI988 vaccine cannot effectively protect against the LTS strain. Abstract The virulence of Marek's disease virus (MDV) is continuously evolving, and more virulent MDV pathotypes are emerging, thereby reducing the effectiveness of the existing vaccines. Keywords.

Marek’s disease is one of the most significant infectious diseases in poultry.

In birds, it can result in tumours or immunosuppression, making the birds more sensitive to other pathogens. Although MD vaccines have been widely used in China for a long time, failures of MD vaccination occur frequently on some poultry farms. The improper selection of a vaccine could be the cause of vaccine failure [5]. Birds are also more susceptible to MDV mutants that have emerged in regions with more-virulent strains than to previous MDV isolates. The pp38 gene encodes a phosphoprotein of approximately 38 kDa that is necessary for both cell transformation and viral reactivation in the latent period [6], [7].

The MEQ protein, which is considered to be the major factor responsible for the occurrence of tumours, contains 339 amino acids [4]. The mutations and increasing virulence of MDV are thought to be responsible for the occurrence of MD on vaccinated farms.
