STUDY: Medical Treatment of Avipoxvirus Infections in Birds of Prey

Excerpt:

“Poxviruses are double-stranded DNA enveloped viruses that infect a wide spectrum of animals. Poxvirus infections in birds are caused by a large avipoxvirus. This infection (mostly dry form) is now seen more frequently in Spain, and considered common in falconry birds in Europe and Middle East. Until now most of the treatment options were surgical. We treated more than 150 raptors infected by poxvirus with a monoglyceride (HEALx Booster Concentrate) to treat over 150 birds of prey observing clinical remission without or with little sequels. PCR and histopathology on some cases confirmed the poxvirus infection.”
