Between 2008 and 2011, commercial turkey and chicken flocks in Poland were examined for the presence of turkey parvovirus TuPV and chicken parvovirus ChPV. Clinical samples 10 individual faecal swabs-flock from 197 turkey flocks turkeys aged 1 to 19 weeks and 45 chicken flocks chickens aged 3 to 17 weeks were collected in different regions of the country and tested using a PCR assay that targeted the NS1 gene 3’ORF. The prevalence of TuPV was 29.4 % in the flocks tested, while ChPV infections were found in 22.2 % of the studied flocks. Phylogenetic analysis revealed a clear division into three groups: ChPV-like, TuPV-like and a third, previously unrecognized and distinct subgroup, TuPV-LUB, containing exclusively three Polish isolates from turkeys. The isolates from the novel group showed as little as 50.6-64.5 % of nucleotide sequence identity to the prototype chicken and turkey parvovirus strains. Genetic analysis of a ChPV isolate that was classified in the TuPV group strongly suggests a recombination event between chicken and turkey parvoviruses.
