Newcastle Disease Diagnosis

  • D. J. Alexander
Part of the Developments in Veterinary Virology book series (DVVI, volume 8)


The diagnosis of Newcastle disease (ND) has never been straightforward. In the the first descriptions of ND, differentiation was made from a number of other diseases that produced basically similar signs. It is surprising therefore that, with what we would regard today as relatively unsophisticated tools, researchers and diagnosticians such as Doyle (1) were convinced from the outset that they were recording a disease that had been unreported prior to their observations.
