I commend Engormix to publish a great article on a very important and dangerous disease of chickens. Author wrote a very well balanced article that covers all aspects of this disease. I am confident this article will certainly help farm managers to control Gumboro and now they can design a comprehensive vaccination program that is often misled by the manufacturing companies. This article tell us that if a vaccination program is effective at Farm A, it is not necessary that it would be effective on Farm B.

Author needs all applause to gather all important information in a single article for the benefit of industry.

Very good article ! Congratulation ! Dr.Y.Segal.

In the quest of IBD vaccination failure due to various reasons, Virus Neutralizing Factor (VNF) vaccines could be possible tool. However, good bio-security measure and right selection of a correct vaccination strain along with strict vaccination schedule will help farmers to prevent Gumboro Disease.

IBD is a very pathogenic diseases in poultry bird. It generally affects the bird after 3 wks of age. If vaccination is not done, it may cause severe losses... 70- 80 % mortality may occur according to the severity. So details knowledge about this topic is necessary... for this purpose this topic is so much helpful to veterinarians, also the persons who are directly engaged in this arena.

This is an excellent and comprehensive paper on Gumboro diseases. The higher mortality rate within a short period of 6-10 days makes this disease to be dreadful. Mortality losses could be reduce by administration of broad spectrum antibiotic + coccidostat + vitamin & electrolyes. These drugs could be administered by pulse dosing since there is reduced appetite.

Dear Farrell Magtoto and Kiran Kumar,
The classic strains of Gumboro disease can be very mild, when infect older birds (over 6 weeks) or partially protected birds by maternal immunity, they cause sub-clinical infection, means no obvious clinical or pathological symptoms, but you might notice slower growth rate, poor FCR, etc which would cause economical implication.

Dear Dr O S Alo
Selenium might assist the immune response, but you should be careful on dosage, as its might be toxic in high doses.

Though it is said that there is no effective treatment for Gumboro Disease or Infectious Bursal Disease (IBD), it has been obsered that some herbal immunomodulators (particularly Imurich manufactured by Samsun Biotech and Gamonex by Warner multimedia) alongwith Vit E works well. However morbidity and mortality is totally dependant on the strees factor. The more the birds are comfortable the less is the chance of mortality.

Dear Dr Nadir Alloui thanks for your comment, This article had been written few year back and probably an updated version is required, especially in the area of vaccination program, as new vector vaccines for in ovo or at day old are now widely available.

Gumboro Disease or Infectious Bursal Disease (IBD) is now common disease for broiler farmers. Vaccine failure is also very common. Use of antipyratic and diaurtic along with addition of sugar is common practice in broiler farming for treatment of IBD. Diluting the feed by addition of maize also helps in decreasing the mortality and morbidity in flock.
