The goal of this project is to find out the prevalence of Respiratory diseases like ND, IB, ILT and AIV in Bangladesh. ACI ANIMAL Health will analyse seasonal patterns as well as prevalence in different farm segments (Broiler,layer, Breeder). As the leader in poultry vaccine, . ACI ANIMAL Health wants to know the disease pressure of Bangladesh and launch vaccines accordingly.

 ACI ANIMAL Health  have done the same for Cevac New Flu H9K  & they have send lot of samples from Bangladesh to Phylaxia and phylogenetic analysis revealed that its G1 lineage(H9), the very strain ACI ANIMAL Health have launched.
With this project, ACI ANIMAL Health will have the ability to do the Phylogenetic analysis locally (BAU), therefore reducing the lead time. Similarly, variant IB like QX, Indian variant is common as per our finding but this project will improve further awareness among the scientific community and industry. Likewise, Newcastle disease is evolving rapidly; different genotypes have been isolated but only one serotype so far.  

Thus, there needs to greater education and collaboration between company, industry and university. ACI ANIMAL Health  want to bring all together and work for the betterment of Bangladesh.
