Title: Despite high viral counts, fowl adenovirus type-8 did not cause disease in infected chickens
Author: Grgic, H.; Yang, D.; Nagy, E.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: The FAdV-8 genome showed similarities to the genomes of several adenoviruses, but was more closely related to FAdV-9 than FAdV-1. Although chickens infected with FAdV-8 had high viral numbers in several organs and had developed antibodies against the virus, they presented no clinical signs of disease. This strain is a non-disease causing virus, therefore it could be considered as a potential vaccine virus.
