Summary

Following building an aerosol exposure chamber in which we could expose domesticated zebra finches, we examined the effects of exposure to aerosolized Permanone® 30:30 insecticide (permethrin and piperonyl butoxide in soy oil vehicle) at ~103-106 x potential environmental concentrations on the response to experimental challenge with West Nile virus (WNV). Compared to vehicle control birds, WNV outcome was unchanged (65% of birds produced a viremia) in the ‘low’ exposure (9.52 mg/m3±3.13 SD permethrin) group, but reduced in the ‘high’ exposure (mean 376.5 mg/m3±27.9 SD permethrin) group (30% were viremic) (p < 0.05). After clearing WNV infection, birds treated with Permanone regained less body mass than vehicle treated birds (p < 0.001). [...]

Purpose

(1) Data was collected on soy oil particle size permitted to pass through a cyclone in a stream of compressed air and (2) data was collected on the time during which a “cloud” of particles dissipated in a after being introduced to a density of 150 mg/m3 into a exposure chamber measuring 100 cm (long) x 55 cm (wide) x 55 cm (height) (volume = 0.3 m3 or 302 L), and that was constructed of plexiglass. (3) Data was collected on the amount of virus, as quantitated by RT-PCR in the serum of birds following exposure to Permanone and then challenge with WNV. (4) Data was collected on the relative concentration of antibodies, as quantitated by EIA in the serum of birds following exposure to Permanone and then challenge with WNV. (5) Data was collected on the birds’ daily mass following exposure to Permanone and then challenge with WNV.
