Arthropod borne virus activity in migratory birds ghana bird sanctuary rajasthan state india 1973



Arthropod borne virus activity in migratory birds ghana bird sanctuary rajasthan state india 1973



Indian Journal of Medical Research 68(AUG): 192-196



A total of 127 serum samples from 10 migratory and 7 resident species of birds collected at Ghana Bird Sanctuary, Bharatpur, Rajasthan State [India] in 1973 were tested for hemagglutination inhibition (HI) antibodies to Sindbis (SIND), Japanese encephalitis (JE), West Nile (WN), dengue (DEN), Kyasanur Forest disease (KFD), Congo, Bhanja, Batai and Olykya viruses. Fifteen sera from 4 spp. of migratory birds, Anas clypeata, A. crecca crecca, A. strepera and Aythya fuligula were positive. Three showed HI antibodies for SIND, 4 for WN and 7 for DEN-2. Only 1 showed antibodies to KFD virus. HI negative sera (81) were also tested for neutralizing antibodies against KFD virus in adult mice. Six were positive (1 from A. clypeata, 2 from Aythya fuligula, 1 from A. strepera and 2 from A. acuta). The findings were discussed in light of the role of migratory birds in arbovirus dissemination.
