Newcastle disease is an infection of domestic poultry and other bird species with virulent Newcastle disease virus (NDV). It is a worldwide problem that presents primarily as an acute respiratory disease, but depression, nervous manifestations, or diarrhea may be the predominant clinical form. Severity depends on the virulence of the infecting virus and host susceptibility. Occurrence of the disease is reportable and may result in trade restrictions.
NDV, synonymous with avian paramyxovirus serotype 1 (PMV-1), is an RNA virus and the most important of the 11 known PMV serotypes as a pathogen for poultry. The original classification of NDV isolates into one of three virulence groups by chicken embryo and chicken inoculation as virulent (velogenic), moderately virulent (mesogenic), or of low virulence (lentogenic) has been abbreviated for regulatory purposes. Velogens and mesogens are now classified as virulent NDV (vNDV), whereas lentogens are classified as loNDV. Lentogenic strains infect the trachea, lungs and air sacs, and interfere with egg production. Mesogenic and velogenic strains are manifested through incoordination, paralysis, swelling of tissue around the eyes, diarrhea and eventual death. An assessment of immune status, as well as serological identification of NDV requires a measurement of antibody to NDV in serum.
