Received Date: Oct 18, 2016 / Accepted Date: Nov 25, 2016 / Published Date: Nov 28, 2016
The objective of this study was to compare the presence of rotavirus (TRotV) and reovirus (TReoV) in clinically healthy turkey flocks and in those with poult enteritis complex (PEC) using reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). TRotV and TReoV were detected in 2.6% (6/230) of the birds each and in 26.08% (6/23) and 13.04% (3/23) of the flocks, respectively. Mixed infection with both agents was found in one sample. None of these two viruses were detected in turkeys originating from clinically healthy flocks.
