Description
Necrotic enteritis is an enteric disease of avian species caused by the anaerobic bacterium Clostridium perfringens. The disease is regularly controlled in the broiler chicken industry through the use of antimicrobials in feed, but is re-emerging in areas such as Europe where there is a ban on antimicrobials as growth promoters. In order to study prospective therapies, researchers must be able to reproduce this disease in a controlled environment, but this is not always possible due to differences in the pathogenicity of C. perfringens strains. The objective of this study was to test the potential of 5 isolates (SNECP43, 44, 47, 49 and 50), taken from field cases of necrotic enteritis, at recreating the disease in a controlled challenge experiment.
