Abstract

Clearance of infectious virus and RNA occurred concurrently after oral infection of ducks with influenza virus. There was no evidence from polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis of the hemagglutinin (HA) gene for persistence of viral genetic information. No detectable RNA was found in the spleen indicating processing of antigen near the site of replication.
