Parasitol Res. Apr;87(4) Investigation of the parasitic nematode Ascaridia galli (Shrank ) as a potential vector for Salmonella enterica. Various possible causes of proventriculitis include virus, bacteria, fungus, protozoans, nematodes, biogenic amines and excessive copper. Three experiments were carried out to examine the consequences of concurrent infections with Ascaridia galli and Escherichia coli in chickens raised for table.
