Avian Pneumovirus infection in Italy is reported from its first appearance in 1987 to present day. The B type virus has been found in different geographical regions but more recently, A type virus has also been detected. To establish the identity and heterogeneity among the APV strains that circulated in Italy from 1987 to 2004, the nucleotide sequences of whole Fusion protein gene were determined and compared with European APV field strains and commonly available vaccine strains.

Abstract

Avian Pneumovirus infection in Italy is reported from its first appearance in 1987 to present day. The B type virus has been found in different geographical regions but more recently, A type virus has also been detected. To establish the identity and heterogeneity among the APV strains that circulated in Italy from 1987 to 2004, the nucleotide sequences of whole Fusion protein gene were determined and compared with European APV field strains and commonly available vaccine strains.
