Avian infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) is a coronavirus which infects chickens, causing the associated disease, infectious bronchitis (IB). It is a highly infectious avian pathogen which affects the respiratory tract, gut, kidney and reproductive systems of chickens.
Infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) is prevalent in all countries with an intensive poultry industry, with the incidence of infection approaching 100% in most locations. Infectious bronchitis has a significant economic impact; in broilers, production losses are due to poor weight gains, condemnation at processing and mortality, whilst in laying birds, losses are due to suboptimal egg production and downgrading of eggs. An assessment of immune status, as well as serological identification of IBV, requires a measurement of antibody to IBV in serum. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) systems have proven efficacious in the quantification of antibody levels to IBV, and facilitate the monitoring of immune status in large flocks.
