IBD or Gumboro disease, is a viral disease affecting chickens that may lead to a temporary or permanent immunosuppression. IBD is caused by a birnavirus (infectious bursal disease virus; IBDV) that is most readily isolated from the bursa of Fabricius but may be isolated from other organs. It is very stable and difficult to eradicate from premises. The clinical form in chickens may appear at 3–6 weeks of age. The bursa becomes swollen and then quickly regresses to a small size, leading to suppression of the immune system. Symptoms include anorexia, incoordination and depression. Affected birds are more susceptible to a variety of infectious agents, including Staphylococcus, Clostridium, E. coli and the respiratory viruses. An assessment of immune status, as well as serologic identification of IBD, requires a measurement of antibody to IBD in serum.
