Low pathogenic avian influenza (LPAI) is a highly contagious viral disease affecting chickens of all ages with variable morbidity and mortality.
In May 2007, health authorities in the United Kingdom identified four persons, two in Wales and two in northwest England, who were infected with a low pathogenic avian influenza A (H7N2) virus (4).
Until recently, all human infections were with low pathogenic avian influenza (LPAI) A(H7N9) virus, which causes little or no disease in infected poultry.
In addition, there is evidence that the transmission of low pathogenic avian influenza (LPAI) virus from avian to mammalian hosts continues to occur, perhaps preluding the emergence of a new pandemic virus (Butt et al., 2005; Cui et al., 2014).
Moreover low pathogenic avian influenza viruses (LPAIV) cause mild to moderate infections in various domestic and wild bird species (Alexander 2000).
([dagger]) Low pathogenic avian influenza viruses isolated from mallard (15) and chicken in Japan.
All of the subtypes of avian influenza virus are not highly pathogenic (HPAI) but arise from low pathogenic avian influenza (LPAI), viruses introduced into poultry flocks from wild birds (Kawaoka et al., 1988).
The viruses which are responsible for infections in birds, belongs to genus influenza virus A which can produce two different types of diseases on bases of their virulence and pathogenicity viz., highly pathogenic avian influenza virus (HPAIV) and a low pathogenic avian influenza virus (LPAIV).
Reassortment of H5N8 with low pathogenic avian influenza (LPAI) A virus in North America generated 3 subtypes (H5N8, H5N2, and H5N1, collectively referred to as H5Nx) that followed different trajectories in local bird populations.
