Subclinical Gumboro disease caused by variant strains. What impact do they have?
Classification of Gumboro disease (IBDV) became more complex with the discovery of antigenic variant strains (avIBDV) in America and a highly virulent strain (vvIBDV) identified in Europe. More detailed information on the antigenicity, pathogenicity and...
Diagnosis of Gumboro Disease
Variant IBDV strains from different countries. Are they related to each other?
Infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) was commonly divided into three main groups according to antigenic and virulence properties: classical virulent (cvIBDV), very virulent (vvIBDV) and antigenic variants (avIBDV).
Vaccination against IBDv
Gumboro disease in layer hens: Not all vaccines are appropriate
Layer hens are more susceptible than broilers to Gumboro disease virus (IBDV) infection. Therefore, a strict control and prevention plan must be implemented in order to avoid the great economic impact that this disease can...
Vaccination against IBDv
In-ovo co-administration of chicken vaccines against coccidiosis and Gumboro disease in broilers
In-ovo vaccination (IO) in commercial broilers is becoming the preferred method of vaccination in many countries. This is attributable to the advance it represents in the automation of the vaccination process and the obvious benefits that this technology...
Vaccination against IBDv
Innovation in subcutaneous chicken vaccination with Hipraject® - the step forward
New developments in the automation of subcutaneous devices are presented for a better vaccination performance in chickens.

Effect of maternally derived antibody levels on hatchery Infectious Bursal disease vaccines
Infectious Bursal Disease hatchery vaccines have been developed with the objective of evading the effect of the maternally derived antibodies.
Diagnosis of Gumboro Disease
Differential diagnosis of IBD symptoms in poultry
Laboratory diagnostic techniques such as serology, PCR and histopathology of the bursa will allow the final differentiation between IBD and other diseases.

Immune complex vaccine
Displacing IBDV variant strains with the use of a new generation immune complex vaccine
The results obtained in this study allow the conclusion to be drawn that vaccination with GUMBOHATCH® is safe and confers adequate protection against circulation of the variant IBDV in chickens under field conditions in Brazil.

Field experience in Brazil: comparison between a new generation and a standard formulated immune complex Gumboro vaccine
Vaccination with GUMBOHATCH® is safe and confers a faster humoral protection against Gumboro disease for the whole productive cycle of broiler chicks when administered via the in ovo route under field conditions.
Vaccination against IBDv
gumboro vaccine adapted to slow-growing broiler
A next generation immune complex vaccine against Gumboro disease adapted to slow-growing broiler breeds needs
The results of this study confirm that a next generation ICX vaccine like GUMBOHATCH® does not compromise the health or productive performance of slow-growing broilers and thus that it is suitable for application in chickens...

Advantages of immune complex vaccines based on IgY of egg origin for the prevention of Infectious Bursal Disease
Immune-complex vaccines are considered as an intelligent tool in the prevention of infectious bursal disease (IBD). These vaccines offer the efficacy of a live virus, but with the advantage of not being neutralized by maternally...
Bursa of Fabricius
Competitive exclusion in the bursa of Fabricius: The hidden protection against IBD
The protection provided in the case of live vaccines involves a step prior to the creation of specific antibodies against IBDV: The competitive exclusion effect in the bursa of Fabricius.

During the World Poultry Virtual Congress by HIPRA, Dr. Miquel Nofrarias explained the main causes and the impact of avian immunosuppressive disease on the poultry industry.
Prevention of Infectious Bursal Disease (IBD)
Evolution of IBDV. What to expect in the coming years? Dr. Daral Jackwood's approach
Learn more about the antigenic drift of the IBDV and the evolution we should expect of the different strains of Gumboro disease in the coming years from Dr. Daral J. Jackwood .
Bursa of Fabricius
How do IBDV immune complex vaccine viruses arrive at the bursa of Fabricius on the optimal day?
The IBDV immune-complex vaccines were developed in the late 1990s with the aim of having an IBD vaccine that could be given in the hatchery and that could provide protection regardless of the maternal antibody...
Prevention of Infectious Bursal Disease (IBD)
Improvements in Gumboro disease with immune complex vaccines
GUMBOHATCH® is a new immune complex vaccine against Gumboro disease developed by HIPRA. This new immune complex vaccine has introduced a different formulation (IgY of egg origin) and control parameters (free IgY detection and neutralization...
