Subclinical infection with chicken anemia virus (CAV) is an important co-factor enhancing the pathogenicity of a large number of other pathogens. During an upcoming webinar, you can learn about the impact of subclinical CAV infection and the role of CAV maternally derived antibodies.
Register at https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/774533128 to attend the webinar, “Subclinical chicken anemia virus infection: Preventing immunosuppression induced by CAV in your flocks,” sponsored by Lohmann Animal Health and presented by WATT Global Media. The webinar will be held May 14 at 8 a.m. CDT.
Speakers Dr. Karel Schat, emeritus professor of avian virology and immunology at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, and Dr. Guillermo Zavala, associate professor at the University of Georgia, will explain what subclinical CAV infection is, discuss the interactions between CAV-induced thymus depletion and secondary infections, and discuss how to reduce the immunosuppression induced by CAV.
