Chinese study on Salmonella enteritidis in ducks
The Avian Diseases Research Centre from the Sichuan Agricultural University in China
investigated the pathogenisis of Salmonella enteritidis in experimentally infected ducks.
For this study, ducks were subcutaneously infected
with a high-virulence strain of Salmonella enterica ssp. enterica serovar
Enteritidis (Salmonella Enteritidis).
The kinetics of the Salmonella
Enteritidis genomic DNA loads, the immunohistochemical localization of the
bacterial antigens, and the histopathological examination in various tissues
The results showed that the time course of the
appearance of the Salmonella Enteritidis bacterial antigens and the lesions in
various tissues was coincident with the bacterial load of the organism in
various infected tissues. This suggests that Salmonella Enteritidis loads in
systemic organs are closely correlated with the progression of the
