Introduction Necrotic enteritis (NE) is one of the most important enteric infectious diseases affecting global poultry production with an estimated annual economic loss of more than $2 billion, largely attributable to increased costs associated with medical treatments and impaired growth performance [1,2]. Host-pathogen interaction in NE is complex and the nature of host and pathogen genetic fact ...

Introduction Host defense peptides (HDPs), also known as antimicrobial peptides, are present in virtually all species of life and constitute a critical component of the innate immunity [1,2,3,4,5]. Defensins and cathelicidins represent two major families of HDPs in vertebrates [6,7,8,9,10,11]. While defensins are categorized by the presence of six conserved cysteine residues in the C-terminal mat ...

Necrotic enteritis (NE) and avian coccidiosis are among the most important infectious diseases in commercial poultry production, both resulting in field outbreaks with substantial mortality(1–4). The aetiological agent of NE is Clostridium perfringens, a Gram-positive, anaerobic, spore-forming bacterium that is transmitted by the faecal–oral route as well as through contaminated feed, ...
