Jafari RA , Talazadeh F, Boroujeni MP, Shojaei-Beyranvand 0., Seroprevalence of reoviruses in broilers, Iran, Onl J Vet Res., 24 (2):129-133, 2020. Reoviruses have been isolated from tissues and organs of poultry with arthritis, tenosynovitis, stunting syndrome, respiratory and enteric disease, immunosuppression and malabsorption syndrome. Birds are eliminated at breeding or condemned during processing. To our knowledge prevalence of reoviruses in broiler chickens in Khuzestan, Iran remains unknown. We assess prevalence in 415 samples from 20 flocks during winter and 413 from 21 flocks during summer by ELISA. The results of this study showed seroprevalence to be 69% of which 66% occurred in winter and 74% in summer (P < 0.05).
