Results of immunological studies on the presence of antibodies to ortho- and paramyxoviruses in a number of common bird species of the North-Eastern Ukraine

D. V. Muzyka, A. B. Chaplyhina

The investigations of egg yolks in birds of tree-shrub habitats did not reveal antibodies to Newcastle disease virus, but found antibodies to influenza A virus, namely: in Great Tits (“Vakalivshchyna” area) – to subtypes H1 (titer 33 log2), Н2 (4 log2), Н8 (5 log2), in White Collared Flycatchers (“Vakalivshchyna” area) – to Н1 (4 log2), Song Thrushes (Haidary Village and  “Vakalivshchyna” area) to subtypes Н1, Н4, Н8 (titers 4 log2), Blackbirds (Heniivka Village) – Н1 (4 log2), Jays (Zhuravlivskyi Hydropark) – Н1, Н8 (titers 4 log2). In samples of waterbirds, only antibodies to the subtype H14 was revealed. Antibodies to influenza A virus were found in the Black-headed Gull to the subtype H14 (4-6 log2) and in the Bluethroat – to Н14 (4 log2).
