Pigeon circovirus (PEB107)

Specimen type

Feathers, Blood


  • Pigeon circovirus (PiCV) is an infectious disease that mainly affects young pigeons between 1 and 4 months of age. Mortality is variable, but it can approach 100%. Pigeon circovirus infections have led to the loss of lymphoid tissue in immune system organs, and for this reason, PiCV is regarded as an immunosuppressive agent in pigeons.
