E. coli continues to influence poultry health

Infections with E. coli persists as a worldwide problem responsible for extensive financial loss attributed to a number of clinical syndromes. E. coli functions as a secondary opportunist organism affecting flocks that are immuno-suppressed. Incident outbreaks occur following exposure to primary respiratory pathogens responsible for lentogenic Newcastle diseases, metapneumovirus infections and avian bronchitis, especially when coupled with environmental stress.
