ALV-J is an avian retrovirus first isolated in meat-type chickens in 1988, and is designated as a unique subgroup partly based on the envelope glycoprotein (gp85). Clinically, ALV-J causes predominantly myeloid leukosis, with variable tumor frequency across chicken lines. In addition to causing neoplasia, ALV-J is known to be associated with reduced productivity and other production problems in affected flocks, including egg production and quality. Infection can occur horizontally from bird to bird by direct or indirect contact, or vertically from an infected hen to her eggs as virus is shed into the albumin of the egg.
