Handbook entirely dedicated to avian infectious laryngotracheitis (ILT), based on a handy and visual approach of the topic. This handbook has been developed by prestigious, highly experienced and renowned authors, being experts in the area of avian diseases. An up-to-date and complete review has been carried out including the most significant contents, such as aetiology, epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations, etc. A chapter about vaccination has been properly developed in order to provide the main guidelines to avoid vaccination failures and control its prevalence and incidence.

Clara Marín Orenga

After graduating in Veterinary Science by the University CEU Cardenal Herrera in 2004, Dr. Marín Orenga earned a PhD by the same university in 2009. Since then, she has been a lecturer at the Veterinary Faculty of the University CEU Cardenal Herrera in Valencia (Spain).

Dr. Marín Orenga has participated in more than 18 investigation agreements with companies, associations and public organisms, which have resulted in publishing of 11 international papers (JRC), 25 national papers (general journals), 2 books, 1 patent, 14 lectures in transference journeys and 44 participations in international and national seminars. During this period she did investigation placements in the VLA (Veterinary Laboratories Agency) in Weybridge (United Kingdom), in the reference laboratory for animal health of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment of Spain and in the AHVLA (Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency) in Weybridge (United Kingdom). In January 2014, she was named European diplomate for poultry by the European College of Poultry Science.

Santiago Vega García

PhD in Veterinary Medicine from the Complutense University of Madrid in 1999, diploma in health by the National School of Health Carlos III of Madrid in 1996, Master’s degree in management of centres and social and health projects in 2010 and Master’s degree in health and porcine production by the University of Lleida in 2011. He is currently the Dean of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the University CEU Cardenal Herrera and member of the European and National Conference of Deans of the different degrees of health sciences.

He has focused his research in two well defined lines, on the one hand in virology, specifically in the virus of bovine viral diarrhea and Border disease, West Nile virus and avian pneumovirus. As second-line he has studied diseases related to public health, (leishmaniosis, leptospirosis, salmonellosis, campylobacteriosis and ehrlichiosis) and possible zoonoses such as hepatitis E. This productive activity has resulted in several research projects obtained in public competition, the direction of various Diplomas of Advanced Studies (DEAs), and doctoral theses. He has maintained an active participation in congresses and national and international conferences as well as publications in conference proceedings; he also published monographs, book chapters and scientific articles in national and international journals. He has participated in numerous courses on virology, organized by different institutions.
