Histomonas meleagridis: population dynamics and virulence in turkeys

Histomonas meleagridis: population dynamics and virulence in turkeys

Dissertation Abstracts International 37B(7): 3218

The population of a virulent strain of H. meleagridis in the caecum of turkeys increased rapidly about six days after rectal inoculation to a maximum of 5 X 107/ml. Plasma bilirubin was a sensitive indicator of liver damage increasing five days after infection. Plasma GOT did not increase until 10 days after infection but showed a better correlation with caecal histomonad density than did bilirubin.
