[isolation and identification of cryptosporidium from various animals in korea. iii. identification of cryptosporidium baileyi from korean chicken].each of spf chicken (hi-line strain, 2-day-old males) was inoculated with 2.5 or 5 x 10(4) oocysts by stomach tube. the oocyst was the medium type of cryptosporidium previously isolated from korean chicken origin, and passed in 2-day-old spf chicken. the patterns of oocyst discharge were monitored daily, and in order to observe the ultrastructure of the developmental stages, the bursa of fabricius of the chicken was examined by transmission electron microscopy (tem) on the 12th day postinoculati ...19911804296
effect of cryptosporidium baileyi in specific pathogen free chickens vaccinated (cvi988/rispens) and challenged with hprs-16 strain of marek's.this study was performed to examine the effect of marek's disease virus (mdv) serotype 1 vaccine (cvi988/rispens) on the pathogenicity of cryptosporidium baileyi , and to determine whether c. baileyi infection could prevent the development of vaccinal marek's disease (md) immunity in specific pathogen free (spf) chickens. sixty-eight spf homozygous b13 white leghorn chickens were divided into seven groups. c. baileyi was orally administered at 5 days of age (day 4) in chickens infected with risp ...200019184860
the life cycle of cryptosporidium baileyi n. sp. (apicomplexa, cryptosporidiidae) infecting chickens.the life cycle and morphology of a previously undescribed species of cryptosporidium isolated from commercial broiler chickens is described. the prepatent period for cryptosporidium baileyi n. sp. was three days post oral inoculation (pi) of oocysts, and the patent period was days 4-24 pi for chickens inoculated at two days of age and days 4-14 for chickens inoculated at one and six months of age. during the first three days pi, most developmental stages of c. baileyi were found in the microvill ...19863735157
clinical and pathological findings in young georgia broiler chickens with oculofacial respiratory disease ("so-called swollen heads").chickens with swollen heads generally are said to have swollen head syndrome. in this retrospective study, 16 accessions of young chickens during 1992 had "swollen heads." clinical signs and lesions were accompanied by infection with multiple viruses, bacteria, and cryptosporidium baileyi. the fact that almost half of the cases of chickens with swollen heads occurred in one broiler-producing company and predictably within 14 days post-vaccination suggests that management factors might be instrum ...19947980292
a redescription of cryptosporidium galli pavlasek, 1999 (apicomplexa: cryptosporidiidae) from birds.cryptosporidium galli pavlasek, 1999, described from the feces of birds, is redescribed with additional molecular and biological data. oocysts are ellipsoidal, are passed fully sporulated, lack sporocysts, and measure 8.25 x 6.3 microm (range 8.0-8.5 x 6.2-6.4 microm) with a length-width ratio of 1.30 (n = 50). oocysts are structurally similar to those of cryptosporidium baileyi described from chickens, but in addition to being considerably larger than oocysts of c. baileyi, these oocysts infect ...200314533694
effect of broiler chicken age on susceptibility to experimentally induced cryptosporidium baileyi infection.clinical signs of respiratory tract disease were observed in chickens that were inoculated intratracheally with 1 x 10(6) oocysts of cryptosporidium baileyi at 2 or 14 days of age (10 chickens/group), but not in chickens inoculated at 28 or 42 days of age (10 chickens/group). orally inoculated chickens in all age groups (10 chickens/group) did not develop clinical signs of disease. orally and intratracheally inoculated chickens in all age groups were infected, as determined by the finding of cry ...19883178034
variations in oocyst output associated with cryptosporidium baileyi infections in chickens.groups of birds, aged 2, 16 and 30 days, were experimentally infected with 400, 20,000 or 1,000,000 oocysts of cryptosporidium baileyi. the faecal oocyst output for each group was determined by collection of faeces on days 0, 5, 7 and 13-21 post-infection (p.i.). the duration of patency of infection, as determined by oocyst excretion, declined more rapidly in the older age groups but persisted longer in birds challenged with the lower oocyst numbers.19948091620
immunosuppressive effect of cryptosporidium baileyi infection on vaccination against avian infectious bronchitis in chicks.two-day-old commercial chicks were inoculated orally with 2 x 10(6) oocysts of cryptosporidium baileyi and vaccinated with 10(3.5) eid50/head of a commercially available avian infectious bronchitis (ib) live virus vaccine at 4 and 14 days following inoculation. chicks infected with c. baileyi were shown to have an immunosuppressive effect on ib virus. it is concluded that infection with the protozoon in early life may increase their susceptibility to ib.19989755592
