Avian immunosuppressive diseases could damage the immune organs of poultry to a certain extent and significantly reduce their multiple immune functions, leading to vaccination failure, mixed infection, secondary infection, etc., which would bring direct and indirect economic losses to the poultry industry worldwide. At present, an increasing number of poultry diseases have been proved to have immunosuppressive effects; however, the prevention and control methods of avian immunosuppressive diseases still need to be further studied.
This Special Issue aims to focus on the epidemiology and prevention of avian immunosuppressive diseases, including research on epidemiology, virus isolation and identification, vaccine development, and testing methods. Furthermore, our topic will cover various immunosuppressive diseases, including, but not limited to, infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV), avian leukosis virus (ALV), Marek's disease virus (MDV), avian reovirus (ARV), avian influenza virus (AIV), and Newcastle disease virus (NDV). Both original research and review articles are welcome.
