Abstract: A DNA molecular hybridization technique employing Duck Hepatitis B Virus (DHBV) DNA of 3.0 kilobase pairs as a probe was used to screen for the presence of DHBV DNA in blood samples, collected from 90 apparently healthy Indian country ducks. Six out of 90 ducks showed positivity for DHBV DNA in serum (5.4%) and only 4 out of 6 DHBV DNA positive ducks answered in Counter Immuno Electrophoresis (CIEP) using specific antibody against DHBV surface antigen raised in Guinea pig. The results indicate the pilot observation that (a) DHBV carrier status exists to a tune of 5.4% among apparently healthy Indian country ducks also and (b) DHBV probe can be employed as a sensitive and reliable assay for DHBV DNA detection in DHBV infected ducks.
