  This study was carried out to understanding the seroprevalence of H9N2 avian influenza virus among hospital staff in Namazi hospital in Shiraz which is situated at the Southwest of Iran. A total of 300 serum samples from hospital staff and 300 control serum samples from people who came for physical check-up (control group) were collected. Hemagglutination-Inhibition (HI) tests were conducted to determine the individual serological status. The seropositive rate (SPR, defined as the proportion with HI titer = 1:40) of antibodies to H9N2 influenza virus and its Geometric Mean Titer (GMT) were calculated and compared among these groups.

  H9N2 avian influenza virus is responsible for the majority of death in Iranian poultry farms due to renal damage. For understanding the nephropathogenicity of H9N2 avian influenza virus in commercial broiler chickens, thirty 20 days old chickens were intratracheally inoculated with 106 EID50 per bird with A/Chicken/Iran/SH-110/99 (H9N2) avian influenza virus. Then on days 1, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 Post-Inoculation (PI) samples of the kidney were collected for histopathologic studies. In inoculated chickens tubulointerstitial nephritis in the kidney were observed on days 6, 8 and 10 PI. The results indicated that the A/Chicken/Iran/SH-110/99 (H9N2) avian influenza virus after IT inoculation has pathogenicity for kidney (nephrotropic).

  Scavenging ducks play an important role in the epidemiology of H9N2 avian influenza virus infection but little is known about the serological status of infection in these birds in Iran. Serological studies were carried out to determine the status of infection with H9N2 avian influenza virus in scavenging ducks. Samples were collected from 400 birds from 4 different locations (North, South, East and West) in Iran and evaluated by using the Hemagglutination-Inhibition (HI) test. The studied ducks had not been previously vaccinated and showed no clinical signs of disease. The overall HI titer and seroprevalence of H9N2 were 7.9 and 80.92%, respectively. Results of this investigation provide important information about the prevalence of LPAIV in scavenging ducks in Iran especially wetlands which represent an important wintering site for migratory water birds.

  This experiment had the objective of evaluating the influence of homeopathic remedies on the performance and health of broilers in intensive system of production. About 200 day old commercial broiler chickens were randomly divided in two equal groups (treatment and control) and were housed in the same condition. The medications were administered in the birds’ drinking water in the test group with a 5% hydro-alcohol extract solution in 5 drops per bird daily during 42 days beginning at 1 day of age. No drugs and vaccines were used in the treatment group. Performance of broiler chickens in two groups were monitored on a daily basis. There were significant differences (p<0.05) between two groups in growth rate, final weight, food conversion ratio and mortality rate. It is concluded that the results of this study justify use of these homeopathic remedies for increasing performance of commercial broilers.
