Avian influenza, or 'bird flu', is a contagious disease of animals caused by viruses that normally infect only birds and, less commonly, pigs. Avian influenza viruses are highly species-specific, but have, on rare occasions, crossed the species barrier to infect humans. In domestic poultry, infection with avian influenza viruses causes two main forms of disease, distinguished by low and high extremes of virulence. The so-called 'low pathogenic' form commonly causes only mild symptoms (ruffled feathers, a drop in egg production) and may easily go undetected. The highly pathogenic form is far more dramatic. It spreads very rapidly through poultry flocks, causes disease affecting multiple internal organs, and has a mortality that can approach 100%, often within 48 hours.

Avian influenza or bird flu refers to "influenza caused by viruses adapted to birds". Of the greatest concern is the highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI). Most human contractions of the avian flu are a result of either handling dead infected birds or from contact with infected fluids. In this book, the authors discuss the molecular evolution, outbreaks and prevention/control of avian influenza. Topics include the risk assessment of highly pathogenic avian influenza virus infections through water; biosecurity measures against highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) in free-range flocks and commercial poultry in developing countries; outbreak control and viral evolution of the highly pathogenic H5N1 avian influenza in Thailand; and the changes in perceptions and attitudes that were identified in a follow-up survey conducted when bird flu was not the focus on widespread media coverage in Australia.

Founded in 1959 by its current Editor, the series has moved from its initial focus on medicinal chemistry to a much wider scope. Today it encompasses all fields concerned with the development of new therapeutic drugs and the elucidation of their mechanisms of action, reflecting the increasingly complex nature of modern drug research. Invited authors present their biological, chemical, biochemical, physiological, immunological, pharmaceutical, toxicological, pharmacological and clinical expertise in carefully written reviews and provide the newcomer and the specialist alike with an up-to-date comprehensive list of prime references. Each volume of Progress in Drug Research contains fully cross-referencing indices which link the books together, forming a virtually encyclopaedic work. The series thus serves as an important, time-saving source of information for researchers concerned with drug research and all those who need to keep abreast of the many recent developments in the quest for new and better medicines.
